If you thought's NBC's reality gross-out show "Fear Factor" could not go any lower in terms of its stunts, read on. (Actually, you may not want to. No, really.)


According to TMZ, an episode slated to run next Monday will apparently feature contestants challenged to consume "fresh glasses of donkey semen and urine." The stomach-churning stunt is so bad that television execs spent the last year figuring out whether or not to air it. Somehow, they gave the green light - which means those that those unfortunate souls who decide to watch this show next week should be prepared to flee to the closest bathroom. From TMZ: 


"We're told the challenge involved teams of twins drinking the full glass of donkey semen -- with a glass of urine thrown in for good measure. Contestants had to drain both glasses in order to move on to the next round."


Naturally, commenters have been less than excited. 


"If he hasn't already I'm sure the founder of NBC is rolling over in his grave now," reads one post. "I can't believe they even allowed such a thing to be taped. NBC you disgust me."


"I have a very strong stomach and watching people slurp down cricket and snail slurpees doesn't phase me in the least, but this is one episode I will happily tune out," writes another. "Hell, some of the physical stunts they've actually look fun! This just looks beyond nasty. I can't believe this will actually air."


How about you? Has NBC gone too far this time - or are you not surprised?
