Bachelor in Paradise is currently filming in Mexico, or is it???
The ABC reality series recently started production of its fourth season in Mexico. The show was set to premiere later this summer on August 8th.
Rumors have surfaced that the filming has abruptly halted for the time being and the cast has all been sent home.
Publicity stunt? Or actual concern for the cast?
Reports have surfaced over the last 24 hours that a form of “sexual misconduct” has arose on set and the producers have decided to stop production to investigate.
For any of you diehard Bachelor in Paradise fans, you know that a lot of it is about the hook ups and break ups. So, what could be so terribly different and wrong than the prior seasons that they need to shut down production?
It has been said that two cast members participate in a drunken sexual encounter. The same reports alleged that cast members Corinne and DeMario were engaging and reportedly getting hot and heavy in the swimming pool.
Many reports are saying that a Producer reported the misconduct whereas the other side is saying that the Producer told the cast that this would be a storyline.
“We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations,” Warner Bros. said in a statement Sunday. “Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action.”
How inappropriate could the interaction have been that they couldn’t have edited for the episode? Is it a publicity stunt to bring more viewers and increase ratings?
A fan ran into the cast and snapped a picture of the “Bachelor in Paradise” group at the airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Corinne and DeMario were not in the photo, which further leads to the speculation of their misconduct. Or it could be staged to send them later knowing fans will spot them at the airport.
Since production has been halted, it is unclear when filming will resume or how this break will impact the August premiere.
However, on a separate note, the same fan who posted the photo of the cast at the airport, recently posted another photo this morning showing love for Robby and Vinny, but throwing shade at Raven who is a beloved fan favorite. Does Raven have a not so sweet side? That is what her caption is alluding too.
TMZ has a more explicit version you can read here.
