The 4th season of Bachelor in Paradise premiered on August 14, 2017.

Chris Harrison reprised his role from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette as host of the show.

The winners of the fourth season were Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth and Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk.

Production

As with the previous season, filming took place in the town of Sayulita, located in Vallarta-Nayarit, Mexico.

Casting and contestants

During After the Final Rose, Nick Viall's runner-up, Raven Gates, accepted an offer to join the season.

Corinne Olympios from the 21st season of The Bachelor, Amanda Stanton from the 20th season of The Bachelor and the winner of the 3rd season of Bachelor in Paradise, and Robby Hayes from the 12th season of The Bachelorette where the next to be confirmed as contestants for this season.

Some of the cast was announced on June 6, 2017. After Dean Unglert was eliminated during hometown week, it was announced that he would be joining the season. Keira Maguire, from the 4th season of the The Bachelor Australia claimed that she was invited to participate in the program. However, following the controversy regarding the allegations of misconduct, she elected not to take part. Maguire told Fairfax Media: "It just doesn’t sound like something I want to be a part of".

Misconduct allegations

On June 11, 2017 production was suspended indefinitely due to alleged misconduct. It was reported that production allegedly filmed cast member DeMario Jackson in a sexual encounter with Corinne Olympios, who may have been too drunk to consent. Warner Bros. released a statement saying:

"We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action."

On June 20, 2017, it was announced that the investigation was over and it appeared no misconduct occurred on the set. That’s the word from Warner Bros., which released the following statement:

"As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We take all such allegations seriously. The safety, security, and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly. 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. Production on this season of Bachelor in Paradise will be resuming, and we plan to implement certain changes to the show’s policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants."

ABC then released this response:

"We appreciate the swift and complete investigation by Warner Bros. into allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise,” said a network spokesperson. “Given their results, the series will resume production, and will air this summer on ABC."

Host Chris Harrison tweeted:

"Thank you for your patience, trust and loyalty #BachelorNation and to our entire Bachelor family."

While neither Corinne Olympios nor DeMario Jackson returned to filming post-scandal, they will still appear in this season from footage shot before the scandal halted production.
