Donkey 'Fear Factor' episode with Tampa Bay twins pulled

NBC executives have pulled a Fear Factor episode featuring Tampa-born twins Brynne and Claire Odioso scheduled for tonight, amid controversy over a stunt requiring contestants to drink the bodily fluids of a donkey.

Network officials declined to comment on the record, but the show is currently scheduled to rebroadcast an episode aired earlier this month.

In an earlier interview that appeared in Monday's Tampa Bay Times, Brynne Odioso said NBC's rules prevent her from describing how she and Claire responded to the challenge, which involved drinking separate glasses of donkey semen and donkey urine.

There is no information on whether the episode will ever air.
