Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 filming has completely been shut down. The ABC series stopped filming during the first week after misconduct allegations began to fly and an investigation began.
According to Us Weekly, the show’s filming was shut down and the cast members flew out of Mexico on Sunday. The site claims that sexual misconduct was alleged and that the network will not comment further on the rumors swirling.
Blasting News reports that blogger Reality Steve and LA Times writer Amy Kaufman both have sources confirming that the two contestants in question are Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson.
Kaufman claims that on the first night of production, Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson engaged in a steamy hook-up that lead to Bachelor in Paradise production being shut down. Corinne, whom fans will remember from Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor allegedly made the first move by kissing DeMario, whom fans recently saw get the boot from Rachel Lindsay on The Bachelorette, and the two began kissing. The make out session was soon taken to the swimming pool where the two allegedly stripped off all their clothes and began getting heated. While sources claims that the two did not have sex, the encounter was called “very raunchy,” by Amy’s sources.
The day after the hook up between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, a producer who witnessed the encounter did not report to work. Later it was revealed that said producer had filed a lawsuit against the production for misconduct over what went on between Corinne and DeMario. Both Olympios and Jackson were reportedly shown footage of their hook up and interviewed as part of the investigation.
Reality Steve claims that no one involved was hurt, but that things are not looking good for production. The blogger claims that the show will likely be cancelled for Season 4.
