'Bachelor in Paradise' changes reportedly include drink limits and producer's permission to have sex

Bachelor in Paradise is reportedly enforcing new rules as a result of the DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios sex scandal that briefly halted production of this summer's edition.

According to sources at the Mexican resort where Bachelor in Paradise has resumed filming its fourth season, producers have implemented changes to increase safety and awareness on the set of the show, TMZ reported.

The Paradise cast is now reportedly restricted to a limit of two alcoholic drinks per hour to ensure no one gets too drunk. The crew is monitoring drinking levels, according to the website, and bartenders at the resort are being held responsible for keeping tabs on the number of drinks served.

Producers are also allegedly supplying food at all times, likely to counter the effects of alcohol.

Since a producer had feared Corinne was too intoxicated to consent to a public sexual encounter with DeMario in the pool -- which prompted a Warner Bros. investigation into allegations of "misconduct" -- sex is now also being handled with additional care.

If two cast members want to have sex on the show, according to TMZ, they now have to ask producers for permission. Producers will reportedly determine if the two individuals are sober enough to engage in sexual activity, and if a person seems unable to consent, the pair will be denied the privilege.

If bachelors and bachelorettes reportedly break the sex rule, producers maintain the right to interrupt and put a stop to it.

And last but not least, a log of medications is reportedly being kept and any illegal prescription drugs confiscated upon a cast member's initial baggage check-in. Cast members are reportedly handing over all drugs, legal or not, to prevent substance abuse.

TMZ reported that when the cast arrived to resume filming last week after Warner Bros. determined there was no evidence of wrongdoing, the bachelors and bachelorettes had to sit through a two-hour meeting with lawyers and staff in order to learn all the new rules.

When Warner Bros. confirmed Bachelor in Paradise's return last week, the company released a statement revealing, "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."

Corinne's legal team recently announced a separate investigation will continue since she had called herself a "victim" in the scandal and said in a June 14 statement that she's been dealing with "physical and emotional trauma" from that night in Paradise.

DeMario, however, claimed his character has been "assassinated with false claims and malicious allegations."

In a recent interview with E! News, the bachelor even insisted Corinne was the aggressor in their hookup and she didn't even seem drunk. In fact, he said the couple hugged the next morning and ate breakfast together.
