‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Production Suspended After ‘Allegations Of Misconduct’

ABC

Production on the fourth season of ABC’s Bachelor In Paradise has been halted after allegations of misconduct involving two contestants. The season was set to premiere on August 8th.

The allegations stem from conduct between cast members Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson.

According to Los Angeles Times reporter Amy Kaufman, on the first day of filming, Jackson and Olympios got ‘extremely intoxicated.’ Olympios allegedly approached Jackson at the bar and kissed him. From there, they proceeded to the pool, where they got naked.

As the two were in the pool, a source said that it turned into ‘soft core porn’. One of the producers who witnessed the incident did not show up for work the following day. This producer has allegedly sued the production over the misconduct she witnessed.

Warner Bros. released a statement on the incident on Sunday, June 11:

“We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action.”
