Before Kendall Long was competing on The Bachelor for Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s final rose — she was on another reality television show. However, instead of enjoying luxurious dates and unlimited champagne in a mansion, Kendall was competing on what was dubbed the vilest episode ever of Fear Factor.
So "vile," in fact, that it never made it to television. In 2011, Joe Rogan and NBC decided to relaunch the stunt series — and did not hold back with the dares. Kendall, along with her twin sister Kylie (yes, like the Jenner sisters), were featured in the unaired episode titled "Hee Haw! Hee Haw!,” which required contestants to drink donkey semen. While we'll never know if Kendall completed that disturbing task, we do know she took part in an electrocution challenge on the show. Wearing matching red and blue bikinis, the girls navigated "a maze of electrified wires, while collecting flags… and the flags were made of metal." We would definitely take a rose ceremony over getting shocked any day.
This shouldn't come as a huge surprise to Bachelor Nation fans given the taxidermy enthusiast has another connection to reality television via the Kardashians. Along with sharing a name with one of the family members, Kendall, 26, previously worked as a set dresser on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians 10th Anniversary Special, which aired last year. NBD.
In her Bachelor bio, she also revealed that she "once drove a car off of a ramp and through the caboose of a moving train," and that definitely screams Fear Factor stunt. However, in her defense, Kendall wouldn't be the first person from the ABC dating competition to appear on another reality show. Bryan Abasolo, who went on to win last season of The Bachelorette, previously appeared on the short-lived series The Player. However, instead of trying to win over attorney Rachel Lindsay, Bryan was facing off against 13 men for the heart of a Miami model named Dawn. In both scenarios, the Bachelor franchise is definitely an upgrade.
