DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios in "Bachelor in Paradise"

ABC network renewed "Bachelor in Paradise" for a fourth season, which is expected to premiere on Aug. 8, 2017. The show has had several incidents happened in the previous seasons but the most recent one appears to be serious as the network has cancelled its production. The cancellation stemmed from two of the show's stars Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, who were engaged in a sexual act while the show was filming.

According to TMZ, "Bachelor in Paradise" star Corinne Olympios was allegedly drunk the whole day while the show was filming, where she ended up with DeMario naked in the swimming pool. A source close to Olympios said that she was blackout because of too much drinking when she was with Demario in the pool. Thus, she remembers nothing.

However, those who have seen the "Bachelor in Paradise" footage said that Olympios was "lucid and fully engaged" in the sexual act between DeMario. She said that she only learned about it the following day when some of the cast members told her and allegedly reported the incident to the showrunners. Unfortunately, the crew did not pay attention to them.

"Bachelor in Paradise" production crew though, said that the cast members did not inform them about Olympios and DeMario's incident. Olympios said that she doesn't blame her co-star for engaging with her sexually because she knows he was too drunk as well. The show has been cancelled while Warner Bros starts its investigations.

Controversies seem to be normal in reality shows like "Bachelor in Paradise" to boost its ratings and as CDL suggests, it appears that the producers are the ones encouraging the stars to engage in inappropriate behavior. It can be recalled when DeMario was eliminated from "The Bachelorette" when a woman come up to Rachel Lindsay, that he has not broken up with her. Olympios also competed in "The Bachelor" to win Nick Viall's heart, who also became interested in her.

There is no word yet from the producers for "Bachelor in Paradise" season 4 release date following the cancellation of its production. Some fans suggest that this could be the endgame for the show. Celebeat will keep everyone posted soon. Stay tuned!
