Production on the upcoming fourth season of ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise has been suspended indefinitely, as an investigation is launched into “allegations of misconduct.”
In a statement provided to our sister site Deadline, a spokesman for Warner Bros. says “we have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. 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.”
Although no details about the allegations have been made public at this time, Los Angeles Times writer Amy Kaufman shared on Twitter (via a source) that a BiP producer filed a third-party complaint after observing a drunken, “soft core porn” encounter between two cast members.
The upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise was scheduled to premiere on Tuesday, Aug. 8 at 8/7c. The cast included Bachelor/Bachelorette alumni Raven Gates, Amanda Stanton, Alexis Waters, Derek Peth, Corinne Olympios, Lacey Mark, Kristina Schulman, Nick Benvenutti, Danielle Maltby, DeMario Jackson, Taylor Nolan, Robby Hayes, Ben Zorn, Jasmine Goode, Vinny Ventiera and Alex Woytkiw.
