Bachelor in Paradise shut down after “misconduct” between Corinne and DeMario

No sooner had Bachelor in Paradise filming began, it was abruptly shut down following “allegations of misconduct” between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson.

ET reports that once filming began in Mexico, the liquor was flowing. A source said contestants were “drinking all day, having a good time… the guys and girls were bopping around, talking to everyone, trying to make connections.”

Everyone was having a good time, until Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson got a little too frisky in the pool.

TMZ reports producers told the two “villains” that a storyline for the show would be the two hooking up.

DeMario, a contestant on the current season of The Bachelorette, was in the pool when “Corinne comes over and hops on his lap. They start talking and joking,” according to ET’s source.

Then things escalated.

“Everyone is just going about their business. Cameras are rolling. Producers are everywhere,” the source said. “That’s when a ‘third party’ felt uncomfortable, claiming misconduct in the workplace. As of right now, production of Paradise is suspended indefinitely. And they are sending everyone home and telling everyone else to stay home. DeMario and Corinne got sent home soon after.”

After the ‘third party’ – a producer on the show – complained, Warner Bros. suspended production of the show.

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

On Sunday morning, fans snapped this pic of a group of Paradise cast members at an airport in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico.

The reality series reunites castoffs from the Bachelor and Bachelorette at a resort in Mexico as they try to find love. The first round of cast members for Bachelor in Paradise was announced last week but more names are added throughout filming.

Season four of Bachelor in Paradise is scheduled to premiere August 8 on ABC. It is unclear if the production will resume or if the show will air.
