Bachelor in Paradise may be in serious trouble. According to Deadline, there may be no fourth season or future for the ABC TV show.
The reality dating show 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. Season four contestants include Raven Gates and Corinne Olympios from season 21 of The Bachelor, Amanda Stanton from season three of Bachelor in Paradise.
Earlier, we reported that Warner Bros. shut down production on season four of Bachelor in Paradise after “allegations of misconduct” arose. Now, ABC News is reporting that the “misconduct” in question involved contestant DeMario Jackson and a female contestant “reportedly engaging in a sex act while they were ‘both intoxicated’.”
However, the story may be more complicated. According to TMZ, the female contestant “may be alleging she was too drunk to consent to “look for love” and may be claiming producers should have protected her, and may have lawyer-ed up.”
Either way, Warner Bros. is conducting an internal investigation, the contestants have been sent home, and it seems likely that there will be no season four for Bachelor in Paradise. As of now, it’s unclear if ABC will cancel the series.
