Several cast members of “Bachelor in Paradise” were spotted catching a flight from the Mexico set of the reality series on Sunday. They reportedly made their exit after production for the new season of the show was suspended.
While the “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 4 cast seemed to be hush-hush about their exit from the filming location of their show, one fan wasn’t able to keep it a secret. Apparently, the fan got the chance to grab a photo with the cast while they were waiting for their flight at Puerto Vallarta airport, and she posted the snap on Instagram. Thus, many other followers of the reality stars were able to catch on regarding what’s going on in the show’s production.
Blogger Steve Carbone, known for spilling the beans on the on- and off-cam moments of the “Bachelor” franchise, saw the fan-taken photo as well. Carbone also revealed on Twitter that he wasn’t sure about what’s happening, but the cast members were informed that they’re being flown to Houston for the time being.
In a statement to Us Weekly, Warner Bros. explained that production has been halted after the execs became aware of alleged misconduct on the Mexico set of the series. “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,” Warner Bros. added.
Prior to the announcement, many fans were suspicious after castmates Amanda Stanton and Corinne Olympios uploaded pics on their social media accounts and alluded to producers returning their phones for some reason.
“Bachelor in Paradise” is the Chris Harrison-hosted spinoff of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” In the show, select alums from the two shows are housed in a beachside pad in Mexico every summer since 2014, according to People.
On its fourth season, many famous alums have been confirmed as part of the cast. The list includes DeMario Jackson from Rachel Lindsay’s season; Olympios, Kristina Schulman, Jasmine Goode from Nick Viall’s season; Robby Hayes, Derek Peth and Vinny Ventiera from JoJo Fletcher’s season; Amanda Stanton from Ben Higgins’ and Ben Zorn from Kaitlyn Bristowe’s installments.
“Bachelor in Paradise” Season 4 is scheduled to premiere on Aug. 8 on ABC.
