In an interview with The Ashley's Reality Roundup, a crew members on Ryan's team spoke out saying, “The reason the producers didn’t stop Ryan from driving after he was seen nodding off is because the producers would not have been able to see him nodding off."

Adding, “That footage (and almost all car footage) is captured on GoPro cameras installed on the dashboard. We do not have a live feed to watch the cast in their car, despite what some viewers think. We do not have live eyes on them the whole time we’re filming them."

The unidentified crew member told the site, “That footage is captured and watched a few days later after the producers/crew get home from the shoot. It’s edited in later. When things happen in the car, we don’t know about it until the cast tells us, or when we watch the footage later on.”

“We wouldn’t have seen it happen as it was filmed," the crew member explained and even added that turning off the GoPros isn't really allowed, which Mackenzie did!

Following the episode, MTV received backlash over letting Ryan while under the influence. The crew member said, “People think that the production crew is just looking for footage that will get the best ratings, no matter what and that is not true at all." Adding, “We really do care about the safety of the cast and other people. A lot of these people on the show are our friends.”

An MTV spokesperson said to OKMagazine.com exclusively regarding the backlash the company was receiving from viewers regarding the scene, "MTV does not condone driving under the influence.  Ryan’s erratic behavior was due to actions that he took without anyone’s prior knowledge.”
