 “Are You The One” Star Gianna Hammer Claims She Was Sexually Assaulted On The MTV Set

Gianna Hammer who was a contestant on season 5 of MTV’s show “Are You The One”, is alleging that she was sexually assaulted on set by one of her co-stars after production gave her a pill of some sort. 

According to a report from The Daily Beast, Hammer claims in 2017 she was assaulted by a cast member who goes unnamed after production allegedly gave one of her own pills prescribed to get her to “calm down”. Hammer told Daily Beast she met with the producers the day after, “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 recalls the night in question that she had been drunk and gotten into a verbal altercation with castmate and the last thing she remembered was the producers allegedly saying “that I needed to calm down and that they were going to give me one of my medications.” The male castmate she made the accusations about was never removed from the show. 

A spokesperson for MTV told the publication 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 at Lighthearted Entertainment also issued a statement denying Hammer’s allegations and it welcomes an investigation and “will cooperate with full transparency.”
