Due to misconduct allegations, ABC almost cancelled its Bachelor in Paradise TV show, shortly after beginning production on the fourth season. After Warner Bros. investigated the alleged incident and reported its findings, the Alphabet Network decided to go forward with installment four. Have they chosen wisely? Will Bachelor in Paradise be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC dating reality TV series hosted by Chris Harrison, Bachelor in Paradise brings previous contestants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette together under one roof, as they try to win a big cash prize — and maybe even finally find true love on television. In the fourth season, the participants include: Raven Gates, Corinne Olympios, Amanda Stanton, Alexis Waters, Derek Peth, DeMario Jackson, Lacey Mark, Kristina Schulman, Nick Benvenutti (aka “St. Nick”), Danielle Maltby, Taylor Nolan, Robby Hayes, Ben Zorn, Jasmine Goode, Vinny Ventiera, and Alex Woytkiw.

Best of all “Bachelor” spin-offs. Evan and Carly’s wedding was so touching, it gave all its watchers a break from the insanity and horrific world events we currently see unfold before our eyes on news channels and in real life everyday. This show reminds us that life and love are wildly beautiful as far as the eye can see.
Interesting first episode – looking forward to tonight’s episode, and more of Evan and Carly’s wedding!
And 4 of the 12 men are leaving? Perhaps this changed after the Corinne/Demario encounter. We will see!
