Disgusting ‘Fear Factor’ Donkey Semen Stunt Leads to Hilarious ‘Gag Order’

Have you heard about the unspeakably disgusting Fear Factor stunt which involved the contestants drinking donkey semen? Apparently network executives became concerned after news of the stunt leaked (snort) on the Internet, and decided it was in poor taste (snerk). On orders from NBC's parent company Comcast, the episode was swapped with a rerun this week, but now two of the show's contestants have landed in hot water (hopefully bleach-filled hot water) for publicly discussing the act.

Now, I'm pretty sure that if for some insane reason I subjected myself to a mug of donkey secretions, I'd take that little factoid to my grave—but twin contestants Claire and Brynne Odioso have been busted by NBC for violating what I can only describe as the network's—haaaaaaa!—semen gag order.

The Odioso twins, who are the daughters of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers spokesman Rick Odioso (my, he must be so proud), gave an interview Tuesday morning with their hometown Tampa Bay radio's “Cowhead Show” describing their Fear Factor challenge in horrific, excruciating detail.

Basically, the stunt required teams of twins to drink a full glass of donkey semen (with a glass of donkey urine thrown in for good measure, because in for a penny, in for a pound, right?), and contestants had to
drain both glasses in order to qualify for the next round. If you've been yearning to hear what the experience was like, Brynne Odioso has the hork-worthy details:

It smells. It's so bitter. It's the sickest thing you can ever imagine. And it has a little hint of hay. What I ended up doing was vomiting in my glass, and just drank that. The cameramen were vomiting.

Oh HAY were you eating breakfast? Yeah, sorry about that.

Anyway, NBC clearly wishes this whole thing would disappear, because the network reportedly not only
threatened the twins with legal action if they don't stick to their confidentiality agreement, executives are reminding other contestant that the first rule about Donkey Semen Fight Club is that you do NOT talk about Donkey Semen Fight Club.

I honestly don't know what's crazier about this whole thing—the fact that NBC is trying to keep contestants from talking about it, or the fact that there were any contestants
willing to do the stunt in the first place. Or, I know, maybe it's that one of the donkey-chuggers is actually bummed people won't get to see her doing the dirty deed. As Claire Odioso said,

We are disappointed because we wanted to share the experience with our family and friends.

Wow. Well, it's too bad for her sake that donkey juice is off the NBC menu, but on the bright side, she should keep in mind that what she does in her free time isn't regulated by television networks. Carpe diem, Ms. Odioso!

Seriously, on a scale of one to BARF, how gross is this whole story?
