15 Secrets They Don’t Want Us To Know About Bachelor In Paradise

Bachelor In Paradise is the latest reality dating show to come out of the Bachelor franchise. The sleazy reality show follows former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants as they make friends and hook-up in an elimination-style game. Let’s just say, there’s a lot of booze, making-out, and a whole lot of drama involved, but that’s what keeps the fans coming back for more.

 

Even though the show has only been on the air since 2014, there have already been tons of scandal-worthy moments that the producers wish viewers could forget about. From alleged sexual assaults, questionable living conditions, and mixing booze with drugs, there’s a lot of drama to go around in Paradise.

This past year alone, the show faced its biggest controversy when contestant DeMario Jackson was accused of assaulting Corinne Olympios after a one-night stand, though he was later cleared of misconduct. That’s of course not the only crazy thing to happen on BIP! Check out these behind-the-scenes secrets the producers don’t want you to know.

15. The Paradise Isn’t Actually Very Luxurious

From the looks of things on TV, Paradise seems like heaven. The contestants are surrounded by a blue ocean, tropical trees, and an unlimited source of drinks (plus tons of hotties to gawk at). But former contestants have admitted that the conditions aren’t always that lavish. Actually, paradise sounds like it kind of sucks.

BIP alumn Tenley Molzhan once said, “We don’t have air-conditioning. I feel like people assume that because we’re on a television show that we’re actually set up to the nines. The ‘resort’ was essentially glamping.” She added, “It was a little intense: the bug bites, the heat—we still love Mexico though! I think half of the reason we didn’t have A/C was for the acting; it was on purpose.” Her co-star Jared Haibon added, “They want you hot and bothered. Emotional.”

14. Mexico Pays For Most Of The Show

BIP might be an American reality show, but it’s largely paid for by the Mexican government. That’s right. The Mexican Tourism Board covers most of the major costs of the show since it helps show off the beauty of the country and resultantly brings in tourism.

However, it doesn’t sound like Mexico has always been a fan of the negative publicity the show has sometimes brought them. “They pick up the tab for practically everything in exchange for all the free publicity the show gives them – but is not a good look and is not likely to be something Mexico Tourism wants to welcome back,” a source explained to People magazine.

BIP is known for being one of the sleazier shows to come out of the Bachelor franchise. Perhaps Mexico wishes they’d invested their funds in something a bit more wholesome!

13. There’s Nowhere To Run From The Cameras

When we say the producers always have an eye on the contestants, we really mean it. Evidently, there are cameras all over to make sure that any and all drama is caught on camera. Yep, that means even the intimate moments that aren’t shown on TV are recorded. How would you feel about your sexy time being filmed?

“There are cameras everywhere and there’s nowhere to hide, so when cast members behave outrageously, they allow themselves to forget there are cameras — and just get caught up in the moment,” a producer from the show once told People magazine. This ensures that all of the gossip-worthy moments are caught on camera, which makes for better TV. But we can’t imagine how the contestants must feel having their every move being watched.
