Although production on the upcoming ninth season of Are You the One has begun, the focus right now is squarely on the fifth season of the show, which debuted in 2017. Gianna Hammer, a contestant on the MTV dating show, has claimed that she was “drugged” and “sexually assaulted” while the show was being filmed.
She has made these claims on TikTok and The Daily Beast. As a direct result of this, MTV has removed the entire season from all streaming services in the United States; however, this action did not affect any video on demand or international streaming services.
Gianna Hammer claims on her social media accounts and in that interview that she was given Zoloft, an antidepressant that she was taking at the time, by producers to calm her down after getting into a drunken fight with a male cast member.
This is despite the fact that her doctor had warned her not to take the medication while she was drinking alcohol.
“I am aware that my fellow cast members have mentioned that I incessantly harped on them about how “I’m not supposed to do this when I’m drinking.”
Hammer was quoted as saying to The Daily Beast, “I’m not supposed to do this when I’m drinking.” “[however], despite this, they insisted that it was perfectly fine, claiming that the dosage wasn’t sufficient or some such thing. So I decided to take it.”
She then stated that she was told the following day that she had gotten into bed with a male cast member and that her co-stars had to pull her out of bed after the cast member ignored her telling him “no” despite the fact that she was in bed with him.
During the same interview, another cast member named Tyranny Todd stated that she witnessed an unnamed cast member of Are You the One riding on top of Hammer.
The article includes statements from both Todd and another cast member, Hayden Weaver, that support Hammer’s assertions.

They stated the following to The Daily Beast: “On the sets of Are You the One?, safety protocols have been in place for a long time, so we are confident that any review will confirm that these protocols are adequate.

We categorically refute the claims made by the ex-contestant; in all eight seasons of the show, not a single contestant has informed Lighthearted of an experience involving sexual assault.

Regarding this topic, MTV Weaver tweeted, ” “These allegations have been refuted by Lighthearted Entertainment. As a witness, I can attest to the fact that Lighthearted Entertainment is full of complete and utter garbage.”
The following is what MTV said in response to the outlet: “We take these issues very seriously and have paused production/casting in order to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations, the third-party production company, and further review our internal safety protocols.”
As soon as these allegations became public knowledge, the show was pulled from the streaming service Paramount+, which is owned and operated by ViacomCBS, which also owns MTV.
