Actress Lori Loughlin has been accused of bribing her daughter Olivia Jade’s way into USC.
And woof, now Olivia has been accused of cheating in a 2016 game show, and the tea is piping.
Between the Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal and the College Cheating Scandal, there are just Too. Many. Scandals. And now Lori Loughlin’s influencer daughter Olivia Jade is apparently involved in yet another drama.
The Daily Mail reports that Olivia was on a 2016 episode of Tap That Awesome App (a Verizon phone challenge...IDEK) and that the game was rigged to let her win. Turns out, fellow influencer Marissa Rachel actually won the game-in front of a live audience, no less!-and she claims studio execs stepped in and made producers reshoot the final questions to secure Olivia the win. Which...what?!

“I have nothing against Olivia. I’ve met her on several occasions and she’s perfectly nice. But what happened just didn’t seem right to me,” Marissa said. “I definitely won by a significant amount.”
Naturally, The Daily Mail also spoke to a production source, who confirmed this ~scheme~.
“They competed in the first round and Marissa Rachel won,” the source said. “She answered the most questions right and was declared the winner in front of a live studio audience of about 25 people as well as dozens of other crew members. The host announced her as the winner and everyone applauded and cheered. But right after Marissa was declared the winner, two studio executives suddenly came on-set and stopped the shoot and said, ‘We have to film it again with Olivia as the winner.’ Everyone was confused. Marissa Rachel said, ‘But I already won.’”
The source added that “while they were reshooting, Marissa and Rydel [another contestant] were instructed not to buzz in with the correct answers so that Olivia could answer and win. They then allegedly refilmed the scene with Olivia announced as the winner and instructed the studio audience to cheer and clap for Olivia."
TRULY, THERE ARE NO WORDS.
