Lori Loughlin was arrested last week on charges of fraud after paying money and faking photos to get her daughters athletic scholarships to USC, and as a result, her influencer daughter Olivia Jade is getting a lot of the backlash.
The latest story to surface is that Olivia Jade won a rigged game show against another influencer back in 2016, after she had lost on its first taping.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Jade was on the game show against two other people — a singer and another influencer. She initially lost the show in front of a live audience, but the show was rigged so she could win $5,000 for her charity, so they ended up reshooting the end of the episode.
Lifestyle vlogger Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, took on fellow influencer Marissa Rachel and singer Rydel Lynch in a 2016 episode of Tap That Awesome App for a now defunct Verizon mobile phone channel. But when Rachel was declared the winner in front of a live audience she says studio execs mysteriously stepped in and ordered producers to re-shoot the final few questions. When the trivia contest resumed Rachel and Lynch were under orders not to buzz in with the correct answers, leaving Giannulli to take home first prize, a $5,000 donation to a charity of her choice, it’s alleged.
There are YouTube videos of some episodes of Tap That Awesome App, which originally aired on a Verizon app, but the Olivia Jade episode doesn’t appear to be on the streaming site.
