During their one-on-one date on the Jan. 28 episode, Miller-Keyes found her moment, revealing to Underwood that she was sexually assaulted when she, then a sophomore in college in Virginia, attended a fraternity party in 2014 with three friends. “They drugged our wine,” she told Underwood. “I woke up the next morning completely naked in my bed and had no memory of the night before. I had a small vision of a guy in my bed and I just had this pit in my stomach that something really bad happened last night. My girlfriend called and said three of us were all sexually assaulted.”

Her friend told her that after her two friends passed out in a bed at the party, two men allegedly had sex with them, in the same bed, while they were incapacitated. “The girlfriend who didn’t drink the wine called me and told me that not only did a guy come home and have sex with me, another guy — I was passed out on the couch from the drugs and he said, ‘Watch what I’m about to do’ with all his fraternity brothers around me and he lifted up my dress. They watched and laughed and took photos” and shared the photos on Snapchat.

“It was horrible It was absolutely horrible,” Miller-Keyes told Underwood. The next day, she reported the assault to the police but when she first went to get a rape kit, she was turned away by the hospital — “which is illegal,” she added of being told she had to file the report first. By the time she arrived at the second hospital and spoke with police, the results ended up being inconclusive because too much time had passed.

“The men got away with it, except for one,” she said. “One did get expelled and the rest got away with it.”

She added, “I was determined to get justice and seek justice. It’s something that will always be a part of me. I struggled with the shame and guilt that I had felt. It’s the most difficult thing in the world. It’s so painful and it screws up every ounce of you.”
