Bachelor In Paradise: 8 Behind The Scenes Secrets

  

Bachelor in Paradise is one of the most popular reality TV shows and that’s because it is full of hookups, breakups and lots of drama. The show is unlike any other Bachelor shows, as it features former contestants in an isolated resort in Mexico, looking for another shot love – or at the very least a hot date! Now that production has been shut down because of an allegation of sexual misconduct, we are looking at what happens behind the scenes of the spinoff series:

8. Constant Filming

Contestants on the show are constantly being filmed and there is little to no reprieve from the cameras. One producer explained that the contestants eventually start forgetting that they are being filmed or they stop caring. This means that the camera picks up hookups that fans don’t see on television. “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,” the producer told People.

7. No Air Conditioning

That’s right – the resort where Bachelor in Paradise is filmed does not have air conditioning! “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,” former Bachelor in Paradise contestant Tenley Molzahn said. “They want you hot and bothered. Emotional,” former Jared Haibon added.
