In the latest episode of the popular TV show American Idol, the ladies of the competition are up for a final challenge: to win $5 million in cash prizes.
This week’s episode features a slew of women who are competing against each other to win the cash prize, which is supposed to be distributed through the show’s social media platforms.
But some women are being accused of trying to exploit the show.
“It’s kind of strange,” a contestant named Kate tells the ladies.
It’s been almost two months since the last episode, and the season has already seen plenty of controversies, including a backlash over the use of the word “bitch” and a sexual assault scandal that saw the contestants stripped of their winnings.
But Kate’s allegations are only the latest in a string of accusations of women making accusations of sexual assault.
According to ABC News, Kate claims that she was the victim of an attempted sexual assault in December, after she was allegedly assaulted by a man who approached her and said, “We’re going to fuck you right here, right now.”
The show has also been embroiled in a scandal over the season finale, in which a contestant called Michelle Michaels was fired from the show after being accused by a fellow contestant of making a rape joke.
Michaels later claimed that she never said that, but was fired because she wasn’t a good enough contestant.
In March, a contestant accused another contestant of raping her, and she was fired in retaliation.
Earlier this year, a former contestant accused a contestant of sexual harassment, but she claimed that the allegation was untrue.
And in August, former contestant and co-host Amber Rose was fired for allegedly making an offensive joke about rape.
Meanwhile, another former contestant, Kim Kardashian West, was fired after being charged with sexual harassment and assault.
The allegations against her have not been proven in court.
