Throughout the years, "Fear Factor" contestants have taken on all sorts of nasty challenges. But one stunt from tonight's new episode was so extreme that NBC has decided to yank it from the air.

The episode -- which was titled "Hee Haw! Hee Haw!" -- featured one task in which teams of twins drink donkey semen.

According to, Robert Greenblatt, NBC's entertainment president, issued this statement regarding the situation: "I reviewed the episode last week and decided it wasn't a segment we should air."

Instead, the network is airing a repeat of the episode titled "Snake Bite" at 9 p.m. The winning team after three tasks walks away with $50,000.
