    CNN

    CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -- A viewer is suing NBC for $2.5 million, contending that he threw up because of a "Fear Factor" episode in which contestants ate rats mixed in a blender.

    Austin Aitken told The Associated Press he watches "Fear Factor" often and had no problem with past installments where the reality show's participants ate worms and insects in pursuit of a $50,000 prize -- but eating rats went "too far."

    "It's barbaric, some of the things they ask these individuals to do," Aitken said Thursday.

    Aitken's handwritten lawsuit contends the rat-eating made his blood pressure rise, resulting in being dizzy and lightheaded -- and vomiting. Because he was disoriented he ran into a doorway, "causing suffering, injury and great pain."

    Asked why he didn't shut off his television before the rat-eating segment, Aitken said he couldn't do it quick enough.

    NBC responded with a brief statement: "We believe that the claim is completely without merit."

    Aitken, a 49-year-old part-time paralegal, said he wants to send a message to NBC and other networks with the lawsuit. He said he isn't concerned with winning a cash judgment in court.

    "I just put any figure. You really think I expect to get $2.5 million?" he said.

    Well, maybe he's just trying to make TV viewing a little safer for us! Is the FCC gonna jump in here, too?

    Somebody needs to pour some McDonalds coffee in this guy's crotch, so he'll have a REAL lawsuit.
