Unreal. Fear Factor being sued.

Entertainment - Reuters TV


NBC's 'Fear Factor' Sued for Rat-Eating Episode

Wed Jan 5, 4:03 PM ET Entertainment - Reuters TV



LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Watching contestants eat dead rats on NBC's gross-out stunt show "Fear Factor" so disgusted a Cleveland man that he has sued NBC for $2.5 million, saying he could not stomach what he saw.



In a handwritten four-page lawsuit filed in federal court in Cleveland on Tuesday, paralegal Austin Aitken said, "To have the individuals on the show eat (yes) and drink dead rats was crazy and from a viewer's point of view made me throw-up as well an another in the house at the same time."


His suit added, "NBC is sending the wrong message to its TV watchers that cash can make or have people do just about anything beyond reasoning (sic) and in most cases against their will."


He said the show caused his blood pressure to rise so high that he became dizzy and light-headed, and when he ran away to his room, he bumped his head into the doorway.


In a brief telephone interview with Reuters, Aitken said, "I am not at liberty to discuss the complaint unless it is a paid-interview situation."


A spokesman for "Fear Factor" said the show would have no comment until it sees a copy of the complaint. The spokesman said the program did feature an rat-eating scene in New York's Times Square on Nov. 8.


Over the years, contestants on the program have eaten some weird things, including ground-up spiders and live worms.

Idiots like this make me pissed off.

Sounds like he was too lazy to get off the remote and change the channel.

Not only should the suit be thrown out, the attourneys filing suit should be disbarred and the plaintiff should be imprisoned for a year in a maximum security prison... forced to choke down more than rats.

Bob Dole just wants to know what law firm this dipshit works for so he can avoid hiring them for anything.

$2.5 million would buy an awful lot of remotes so that dipshit could change the channel.

If I was NBC, I would definitely counter-sue because that lawsuit is beyond frivolous. Even if they don't win the countersuit, they can bankrupt the assbag with lawyer fees to defend himself.

I don't watch fear factor much, but isn't there some kind of disclaimer at the begining of the show? Crap like this lawsuit means that it will be shown after every commercial now.
