Definitely the most surprising season yet.
Bachelor in Paradise was set to return this summer for its fourth season, however after a short time of filming–approximately two days– filming has ceased, investigations are underway, and the future of the show is extremely questionable.
Warner Brothers, who licenses the ABC summer show, released a statement on Sunday. “We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ in Mexico,” the studio said. “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.”
While there is no explicit explanation over what the allegations are, some sources have given a little insight.
According to Amy Kaufman (@AmyKinLA), ‘Bachelor’ fan favorite Corinne and ‘Bachelorette’ DeMario are the subjects of the allegations. After meeting in Paradise (Mexico) and having some drinks, there was heavy flirting and a hook up in the pool which resulted in the two getting naked. Though there was no sex, a producer who witnessed the hook up apparently did not return to work the next day. The producer then filed a “third party complaint” and is suing production for misconduct that was witnessed between DeMario and Corinne.
I just spoke to a source who says he knows why "Bachelor in Paradise" was just cancelled. Here we go:—

The cast members of ‘Paradise’ have left Puerto Vallarta and while the show was slated for an August premiere, Reality Steve doesn’t believe the show will be happening.
(MAJOR SPOILER): From I've been told, the show has been cancelled. They're done. Everyone's being sent home. (1/3)—
