Bachelor in Paradise is paradise no more. ABC has officially suspended production of the popular Bachelor summer spin-off series due to serious allegations of misconduct.
“We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico,” Warner Bros. said in a statement yesterday. “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.”
According to multiple reports, issues concerning the alleged misconduct arose during the show's first day of filming in Sayulita, Mexico.
Alcohol fueled flirtation and emotions are notably what make the show a favorite summer indulgence for viewers.
There is no word yet on whether Bachelor in Paradise season four will resume production, or if it will still premiere August 8 as previously scheduled. As of late, all cast members have been sent home to the U.S.
