In the wake of the highly publicized Bachelor in Paradise misconduct investigation, filming of season four is back under way in Mexico, and producers plan to confront the scandal head-on.
Variety reports that both Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, who are said to have been at the crux of the misconduct, are not expected to return but will be featured in early episodes of the forthcoming season. The show, reportedly, plans to discuss the investigation and explain why there was a gap in production.
“Not sure how in depth [the season] will get with the situation,” a source told Variety. “We will definitely address there was a stop-down, and how things will move going forward.”
Producers of Bachelor in Paradise have also introduced a new set of rules for contestants, including a two drink per hour limit and the mandate that contestants must gain permission from a producer before engaging in intercourse.
Bachelor in Paradise’s season four premiere date has yet to be announced, but all signs are pointing to a saucy, but somewhat more responsible, season. Bring on the responsible drinking.
