"We've made a really really big effort to make sure things like that don't happen, and we start scrubbing social media accounts," says Robert Mills, ABC's senior vice president of alternative series, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "In the case of the Garrett thing, first of all, like you said, it's an alleged account, and it's likes, it's not things he's actually posted, which are things you actually can't scrub for unless the person has a certain number of followers. ... Obviously, we want to know every single possible thing about these contestants. So we're working harder. I mean, it is such a new frontier, social media, and I think it's important for us to really be on top of this stuff, and certainly, we never want a situation like what happened last year with Lee to ever happen again. ... We are here telling everybody we are putting the best men and women forward for the lead to date, so I think we want to make sure we are absolutely doing that."
