Host Chris Harrison urges patience after "Bachelor in Paradise" production halt

Today in Entertainment: Fate of 'Bachelor in Paradise' in limbo; Ivanka Trump surprised by 'viciousness' surrounding

Today in Entertainment: Fate of 'Bachelor in Paradise' in limbo; Ivanka Trump surprised by 'viciousness' surrounding

The Bachelorette is now airing, and there is a season of The Bachelor set to film this fall.

One fan snapped a shot of the cast - which was announced last week - at the airport in Puerto Vallarta on Sunday. The pair chose to spend time getting to know one another better over drinks before returning to the mansion for a dip in the pool.

"People are pissed, and not just at DeMario". The source claimed the two cast members found out a storyline would involve them hooking up, and a casual drinking hangout to get better acquainted allegedly took a serious turn. "It's the nature of the show". "It's not unprecedented that people would get drunk and hook up on the show - it happens all the time", he told People.

"With Corinne, they wanted her to be that person", the source continued.

The contestants sat around and discussed over the next three days what had happened, and then they were moved off site to a hotel for two days before being sent home. "It is always available". DeMario Jackson, who was recently eliminated on the current season of The Bachelorette, was revealed to be one of the men on the show.

The source also explained that another reason why numerous contestants tend to "drink more" on BIP is because, at this point, they're "more comfortable" on camera.

DeMario Jackson is at the center of controversy once again.

When the story first broke, it was widely reported that Jackson and the victim were told producers wanted their "Bachelor In Paradise" storylines to intertwine.

Pozner says that a disregard for the safety of women is in the DNA of shows like The Bachelor, where women are consistently fed alcohol, and background checks on contestants don't go as far as they should.

Warner Bros. said in its statement that it was "conducting a thorough investigation" and would "take appropriate responsive action" once the investigation is complete. Now, at least the show's host in Chris Harrison is speaking out and addressing some of the talk.

"By now, no doubt, you have heard that we have suspended production on this season's Bachelor in Paradise", Harrison said. "If someone's had a few drinks, but seem to know what they're doing, you're probably going to let that go".

Chris Harrison has asked fans not to rush to judgment.

ABC is waiting for the Warner Bros. investigation to draw to a close before it will give official word on the show's fate - but considering production and scheduling realities, the writing is on the wall. "It is with this thought in mind that we made the decision to suspend filming", Harrison said an exclusive statement to Good Morning America today. In it, he wrote, "An investigation into the situation was started immediately". Bustle has reached out to Olympios, Warner Bros., and Jackson for comment on the latest allegations. They're moving quickly to gather all the facts, and once that's done, a clear, concise decision can be made about where we go from here. "And there's a lot of misinformation out there, too", he said. "I know in this day and age we want - and even expect - immediate answers, but in this case, it's just not possible", he concluded.
