Austin Aitken sued American TV station NBC for an equivalent of Sh250 million after a nauseating episode of a show called Fear Factor which allegedly made him vomit.
According to Aitken, he was a regular watcher of the show and nothing had previously caused such a reaction until he witnessed contestants competing in a rat-eating challenge.
In the show, the rats had been processed in a blender and then served to the contestants, which Aitken claimed caused him to be so terrified that he threw up.
Aitken claimed the huge sum of money was for the ‘emotional distress’ that the show caused him. The judge ultimately threw the suit out.
