There’s more bad news from the set of “Utopia,” Fox’s upcoming reality show which premieres Sept. 9. A female contestant was rushed off the set Tuesday and taken to a hospital so she could be treated for dehydration, according to reports.
Hex — a 25-year-old woman from Detroit who is described on the upcoming show’s website as six feet of “twisted steel and sex appeal” — was taken to Mayo Hospital in Valencia by the paramedics as a “precautionary measure,” according to TMZ. She was reportedly treated for five hours before being returned back to the “Utopia” set to continue shooting.
It’s the second mishap in as many weeks for the new Fox show, which asks contestants to build a new society from scratch and does not include an onsite hospital.
On Aug. 29 Andrea Cox was booted from the show before filming even began for attempting to contact other “Utopia” cast members, an apparent violation of the rules.
Fox has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
“Utopia” premieres across three nights on Fox: Sunday Sept. 7, Tuesday Sept. 9, and Friday Sept. 12. All episodes will broadcast at 8/7c. It will then continue on Tuesdays and Fridays at 8/7c.
