Gianna Hammer, a former contestant on MTV’s “Are You the One?,” claims one of her former co-stars sexually assaulted her on set after a producer handed her a pill.
Gianna starred in season five of the show back in 2017. She says a production member allegedly gave her one of her own prescription pills to “calm down” during an argument while drunk. She then says a co-star attacked her.
She does not name the co-star.
“I was super confused, super nervous,” she said of a meeting with producers. “I remember being shaky and not knowing what had gone on or if I was in trouble. That’s when they asked me if I remember anything that happened last night. I said no. They kind of start going over what had happened … and that’s when I started really thinking and seeing some type of flashes.”
She says the alleged attacker was not pulled from the show.
An MTV spokesperson told The Daily Beast in a statement, “We take these issues very seriously and have paused production/casting to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations, the third party production company and further review our internal safety protocols.”
Producers Lighthearted Entertainment denied the allegations.
“We are confident that any review will confirm the safety procotols that we have long had in place on the sets of ‘Are You The One?’” the company said in its statement. “We deny the allegations made by the former contestant; throughout the eight seasons of the show, no contestant has reported an incident of sexual assault to Lighthearted.”
