The woman who was kicked off the reality show “Utopia” got the boot because she found a way to sneak in a smartphone and research her fellow contestants before the game had begun … TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, Andrea Cox was shown the door “due to violation of production policies” … which our sources say involved trying to contact the other contestants.

According to our sources, Cox somehow brought a cellphone in with her when the contestants were sequestered in a hotel before shooting began. We’re told she used it to learn the identities of the other contestants on the show … and then tried to snoop around the hotel to find them.

Once producers found out about her scheming, they gave her the boot.

The show has already begun airing in a livestream online and premieres for real on FOX next month.
