After a woman accused a contestant on an upcoming installment of a reality show of being involved in facilitating sexual assault, ABC is pulling that episode of the show, “The Proposal,” reports TVLine.
The story continues, “In a public Facebook post on Thursday, Wisconsin resident Erica Denae Meshke detailed how Michael J. Friday — a contestant on ‘The Proposal‘s’ second episode — facilitated a sexual assault that took place when he and Meshke met for a Tinder date last November.”
The story also quotes a statement from ABC and production company Warner Horizon: “An allegation has been made against a contestant on next week’s episode of ‘The Proposal.’ While the accusation was not related to the contestant’s appearance on the program, we take it very seriously. ABC and the producers of ‘The Proposal’ are pulling the episode while this matter is under review.”
The TVLine story adds, “Created by Mike Fleiss (‘The Bachelor’), ‘The Proposal’ features 10 eligible daters in each episode who compete in pageant-style rounds to win the heart of a mystery suitor or suitress, who they don’t meet until the end of the competition. A representative for ‘The Proposal’ noted that Friday was eliminated in the first round of his episode.”
