“The Proposal” is a reality television show where a woman or a man is introduced to 10 contestants trying to win them over. The contestants go through a series of rounds until the person chooses who they want to approach with a “romantic proposal of their choice,” according to Fox News.
ABC announced Friday that it has pulled the second episode of the “The Proposal” after a woman came forward and claimed that one of its contestants was “directly responsible for my date rape.”
Allegedly, in 2017 the woman, Erica Denae Meshke of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, met up with one of the contestants, Michael J. Friday for a planned date. When she arrived at the lobby of an apartment complex, Friday was there with two older men in their 50s, she claims.
“When I arrived, it was just him and two other 50ish-year-old men whom he referred to as his ‘friends,’” she wrote on Facebook.
“They poured me a drink, and then I was left alone with the two older men. The original guy never came back, despite me calling and texting. I was told by his friends that he would be back soon. So while I waited, I accepted another drink, which I know now was spiked,” she continued.
After that, she said that “the things I endured for the next 5 hours were unspeakable,” when the men led her upstairs to an apartment, where she was allegedly assaulted.
In Meshke’s post, she urged viewers to boycott the show, asserting that Friday is “the pretty face that is used as a lure to get girls into unsafe situations.”
ABC is taking the allegations seriously. In a statement they wrote, ““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,” the statement said.
Friday was eliminated after the first round and has not immediately commented on the allegations.
