What are we going to do without our weekly dose of Corinne Olympios?! Production of ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ season 4 was unexpectedly halted on June 11 following ‘allegations of misconduct,’ according to Warner Bros. Deep breaths, guys…
Sorry Bachelor Nation, it’s going to be awhile before we see Corinne Olympios, 24, and Raven Gates, 25, flirting up a storm in sunny Mexico! On June 11, a Warner Bros. released a shocking statement that season 4 of Bachelor In Paradise is experiencing serious delays. “We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico,” Warner Bros. said in a statement to HollywoodLife.com. “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.”
UPDATE: Bachelor In Paradise host Chris Harrison, 45, released a statement to ABC News on June 13 regarding what happened on the Bachelor In Paradise set. “The safety and care of the cast and crew of our show is of the utmost importance to us,” he said. “It is with this thought in mind that we have made the decision to suspend filming. It is my sincere hope that we can come to a quick resolution on this and get back to work very soon.”
Production was reportedly suspended after Corinne and DeMario Jackson, 30, allegedly got too raunchy in the pool during the first days of filming, TMZ reports. One of the show’s producers watched their alleged racy pool session go down and filed a “third party complaint” to bring these “allegations of misconduct” to light, according to LA Times film writer Amy Kaufman. Corinne and DeMario were shown footage of their alleged hookup and later brought in to meet with the executive producer. They were both sent home and the rest of the cast was as well.
Some media outlets, including TMZ, have reached out to Warner Bros. for further details but haven’t received a response. Basically Bachelor Nation is now waiting in limbo land…and it SUCKS. Season 4 of Bachelor In Paradise was gearing up to be the juiciest one yet, especially after watching Nick Viall, 36, as The Bachelor. He nixed two of the hottest girls on television, Corinne and Raven, and ultimately got engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Amanda Stanton, 27, will RETURN to Bachelor In Paradise after the crumbling of her Josh Murray, 32, engagement. It’s like she’s come full circle! The cast also includes the infamous DeMario, who was let go by Rachel Lindsay, 31, three episodes into The Bachelorette season 13 for allegedly having a side piece back home. This may be the sexiest cast yet — now if we could just resume filming ASAP please!
