Controversy, censorship and gender violence


The violence unleashed throughout the season was criticized for an incident in which a male participant assaulted a woman.[9] For this reason, MTV decided to censor a large part of the scenes in which the cast members were in situations of physical violence.[10][11]

On June 2, 2020 during the season premiere, in the middle of a physical altercation between Manelyk González and Dania Méndez, the latter was attacked by her co-star Luis Méndez, who in an attempt to end the confrontation between her partner and Dania, he rested his elbow on his Dania face for several seconds.[12] Minutes later in the broadcast of the spin-off program Estudio Shore, Luis said: “I wanted to separate Dania from my girlfriend (Manelyk), what if I separated her and put my elbow on her? Yes I did and one and a million times more ",[13] this caused a wave of claims on social networks, such a scene was edited in future reruns. On June 4, Luis Méndez published a statement on his Instagram in which he apologized for what happened.[14][15]

Following the airing of the second episode on June 9, 2020, criticism now continues due to censorship. MTV Latin America decided not to broadcast a confrontation between Dania, Ignacia Michelson, Manelyk González and presumably Rocío Sánchez. Part of the censored scene could be seen as the closing of the first episode like the preview of "Next Week".[16][17] The full showdown was leaked in April 2021.[18][19]

On July 21, during the eighth episode, after a heated argument, Dania threw glass objects at Manelyk, an action that was deemed "dangerous" by both the production and the housemates. Later in an interview, Dania revealed that both she and Manelyk received a warning from the production.[20][21]

Following Dania's departure on August 11 during the tenth episode, an off-camera outing as it was not televised,[22] rumors spread that another altercation had broken out. Finally, in an interview with Gerardo Escareño from VayaVayaTV, Dania revealed that Luis Méndez had pushed her,[23] an action that caused her to partially leave the program before permanently leaving the program on August 18, 2020.
