Immediately following the news that production on season 4 of “Bachelor in Paradise” had been shut down, producers of the show started investigating claims of sexual misconduct. Names of the involved parties were quickly leaked and producers assured fans and concerned citizens that footage of the ordeal would never be seen.
Once production was resumed, the statement from Warner Brothers said once again the footage would not be aired, “Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident. We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy.”
In previews for the show, which comes back August 14, clear footage of the encounter is teased. If it’s in a preview, how is it not going to be on the show?
The plot thickens.
When the show returns, contestants are only allowed to consume two alcoholic beverages per hour.
