Chris Harrison sorry for 'Bachelor in Paradise' suspension

A spinoff of The Bachelor in the United States has halted production over alleged misconduct on set, with one contestant reportedly claiming she was sexually assaulted in a pool.

Additionally, a member of the Bachelor in Paradise cast told People they and other cast members believe producers should have done more to intervene during the encounter. A source shared that all of the cast members were sent home from the set location, which is in a Mexico resort.

The production of "Bachelor in Paradise" has been suspended amid allegations of misconduct, according to a representative for the show.

Although the victim hasn't been named, Entertainment Tonight reported that Jackson had a raunchy hookup with Corinne Olympios.

Now, TMZ and other outlets are reporting that Corinne Olympios, best known for being a "villain" character on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, was allegedly too drunk to consent to a sexual encounter with fellow contestant DeMario Jackson during filming of the show. A producer who witnessed the incident, Kaufman said, did not come to work the day after the alleged misconduct, then filed a third-party complaint about it. They could have seen that she was drinking too much, and that he was taking advantage. What, precisely, occurred on-set in Mexico is unclear, but Warner Bros., which produces the program, has sent the cast home and is conducting an investigation. They could have stopped this before it got this far. "Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action".

The summer spinoff is ostensibly about contestants from past seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette finding "love", although it's really about good-looking men and women getting drunk and hooking up at the beach.

"Bachelor in Paradise" host Chris Harrison is speaking out about the "allegations of misconduct" on the set of the reality show.

Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise had been scheduled to premiere on ABC on Tuesday, August 8.
