Bachelor in Paradise Suspends Production Over Alleged ‘Misconduct’

Paradise has been (temporarily) halted.

The Bachelor/ette franchise spinoff Bachelor in Paradise, which is currently filming its fourth season in Mexico, has stopped production due to what the production company is calling a “misconduct.”

“We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico,” Warner Bros. said in a statement. “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.”

Fan-favorites like Corinne Olympios from Nick Viall’s season, Amanda Stanton from Ben Higgin’s season and Robby Hayes from Jojo Fletcher’s season were set to return to the show this year.

ABC first premiered Bachelor in Paradise in 2014. Every summer since, the network has shipped in Bachelor and Bachelorette alums to a beachside house in Mexico. The initial cast starts with an uneven number of men and women, and at the end of the week, they pair up during a rose ceremony, which determines who from the outnumbered group will be going home. Each week, the show brings in more contestants, which flips the rotation.

There is no information on the alleged misconduct that led to the halt in production.

Bachelor in Paradise is set to premiere Aug. 8 on ABC.
