Becoming a Bachelor in Paradise may not be paradise after all, especially after taking a closer look at the contestant’s contracts, RadarOnline.com has learned.
A contract for the current season of Bachelor in Paradise, which CNNMoney claims to have obtained from a source close to the production, gives producers virtually any excuse to portray contestants however they’d like.
So forget about your reputation and check your modesty at the door! According to the contract, Bachelor cameras can film you naked, editors can repurpose footage to suit their own needs, and the show can even lie about you and things you’ve done.
According to CNNMoney, contestants sign away “the right to change, add to, take from, edit, translate, reformat or reprocess... in any manner Producer may determine in its sole discretion."
Contestants further are warned that their "actions and the actions of others displayed in the series may be disparaging, defamatory, embarrassing or of an otherwise unfavorable nature and may expose me to public ridicule, humiliation, or condemnation."
CNNMoney says the contract requires that participants refrain from unlawful behavior or harassment, and to acknowledge that the producers do not encourage "intimate or sexual" contact with other contestants on the show.
But the contract also gives the producers a loophole from any responsibility if a contestant is injured, even if that injury comes from unwanted sexual contact.
Insiders have confessed to Radar the show is a cesspool of smut.
“In the past during filming there has been sexual incidents – women touching penises, men pulling out their penis,” a source told Radar. “Sex happened in front of people.”
As Radar has reported, Bachelor in Paradise is gearing up to start filming again, after Warner Bros. found no evidence to support the claims of sexual misconduct involving DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios.
But one former Bachelorette contestant isn’t surprised by the allegations.
“Producers put you in intimate situations,” Josh Seiter, who appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season, told Radar. “They tell you where to go and who to talk to. It’s a lot of manufactured scenarios and then you mix that with alcohol.”
Seiter, who went home on night one, claims he would be “concerned” if he were a women going on any of the Bachelor shows.
“They want good TV. The more hookups the better,” he exclaimed. “What happens is there are regrettable instances of rape or sexual assault.
“Your sole purpose is to provide entertainment with a good storyline. It’s inevitable for this to happen.”
