All tagged bachelor in paradise
Well guys, I did it. Not only did I make it through this, the most ridiculous iteration of the franchise, but an entire year of Bachelor shows. This just proves that if you put your mind to something, commit to it, you too can be distracted by a bonkers reality dating show and forget to do the thing you committed to doing.
It’s been a rough couple weeks. Sharky is gone, Taylor and Derek’s relationship remains unbearably boring even through orchestrated arguments and we’re expected to still care about Chief Fuckboi in Charge Dean and his many conquests.
Week Two and nobody has any blistering sunburn or welted mosquito bites yet, proving all these people are smarter and more responsible than I would be on this island. Fingers crossed this is the week someone gets stung by a scorpion otherwise, I don't understand the point of this show.
This has to be the most ridiculous iteration of The Bachelor franchise yet, but weirdly the one that seems the most comparable to regular dating. Instead of convincing yourself that the one person offered to you is your soulmate, you get a series of choices, and maybe you meet your person or maybe you just hook up with someone in order to not get kicked off this island we call life. Here are the most ridiculous things I noticed on my first viewing of Bachelor in Paradise.
As all the good citizens of Bachelor Nation know by now, the 4th season of “Bachelor in Paradise” has been suspended due to allegations of sexual misconduct on the third day of shooting. Details are still scant, but what is known is that a producer filed a third-party complaint after a sexual encounter between cast members Corinne Olympios (the “villain” of the most recent Bachelor season), and Demario Jackson (the “villain” of the current Bachelorette season, who was only just booted a couple weeks ago). The two had apparently been drinking throughout the first day of production, and at one point moved from the resort bar to the pool, where the sexual encounter occurred, with cameras rolling.
