    After reading this article, I can see why the episode was canned. They really went overboard on the gross factor. I feel sorry for the contentants who participated! I wonder if the winners still got the money if the episode never aired.
    Another reason NOT to compete on this show!

    They've been covering that little saga on TMZ for a few days and every darned article has a picture of glasses full of that stuff. BLECH. Nice to know that, even if the producers don't have a "line," the network does.

    OMGosh! I actually gasped when I read that headline!

    I think we were supposed to get the episode last week with people having to shave their heads. I actually really wanted to see that, but it got preempted for the GOP debate. I am going to hope they just air that one instead for us!

    It was fun first time around, once again ( like other shows) they have to push the envelope, and the donkey stunt is sick

    RE the TMZ coverage. The comment that the one young lady made was a bit over the line of "good taste" (pun intended) IMO.

    Re: Fear Factor

    At least things like balut and insects are eaten in other countries so although they're bizarre to us, they do qualify as food. Does any culture really consume animal urine and the other liquid mentioned in the article as food??? I don't think so!

    I didn't want to say what else they had to drink on the show since that probably wouldn't be appropriate for this site. It wasn't blood.

    Re: Fear Factor

    I've been hearing about this for days now, but have yet to hear what happened to the contestants that actually participated in the stunt in order to qualify to the next round... Assuming people actually completed it, what happened to their "glory" of having the episode air?
