Big Brother producers have questioned two contestants who accused fellow houseguest JC Mounduix of inappropriate conduct, EW has learned.

The 28-year-old professional dancer from Florida was caught on camera kissing fellow houseguest Tyler Crispen on the armpit and rubbing his leg while Crispen was sleeping on Wednesday. Mounduix also reportedly opened the bathroom door on Haleigh Broucher but refused to give her privacy — even as she called for production to intervene.

EW has confirmed that producers met with Crispen and Broucher, who reportedly said they did not feel threatened by Mounduix’s behavior. CBS did not release an official statement.

Earlier in the season, Mounduix was reportedly disciplined by the producers after he could be seen on the show’s live feed attempting to touch the genitals of other contestants with his hand and an ice cream scooper. He could also be heard on the live feed  using the n-word during a discussion with fellow houseguest Bayleigh Dayton. After those incidents, CBS released this statement: “Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and capturing every unfiltered moment and conversation in their lives. At times, the houseguests reveal prejudices and exhibit behavior that we do not condone. The producers have addressed two such incidents that were seen recently on the 24-7 online feed. In both cases, those involved have been warned about their inappropriate behavior and offensive comments, as well as future consequences. These events will not be part of any future Big Brother broadcast on CBS.”

Mounduix’s ongoing behavior has not gone unnoticed by fans, especially at a time when the #MeToo movement remains front and center in the entertainment industry. CBS also has been cast in a harsh light recently after The New Yorker published a lengthy report accusing CEO Leslie Moonves of inappropriate conduct toward women. The company’s board of directors is currently conducting its own investigation.
