Melbourne: A female contestant and her partner recently left TV viewers and a studio audience dumbstruck after stripping off and simulating sexual acts during their routine on the Argentinian version of ‘Dancing with the Stars’.
Cinthia Fernandez, a South American model and a former Big Brother contestant, and her dance partner Marcello Tinelli started off the “dance” reclining on a white bed in togas, with the moves becoming progressively more sexually explicit, reports News.com.au.
At one point, Tinelli pours a jug of red wine all over a bare-chested Fernandez as she writhes in his arms. Towards the end of the number, he undoes her G-string, leaving her fully naked.
The host of the show was seen trying to shield viewers from the raunchy performance after the duo undressed one another.
According to Gawker, Fernandez’s parents were in the studio audience.
The Federal Authority of Audiovisual Communications Services is reportedly investigating the incident, and is even considering imposing penalties on Channel 13 for broadcasting the risqué episode.
