'Bachelor in Paradise's Season 4 cast: Who will be returning to Mexico after sex scandal?
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/21/2017
Bachelor in Paradise cast members are appearing to confirm their returns one by one now that production is back in full swing.
"I'm really happy things got resolved and that we can finally move forward!" Jasmine Goode from Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor told People. "It's so exciting knowing we are heading back to finish what we started."
Many reality TV stars seemingly announced their return to Paradise Tuesday on social media.
Amanda Stanton from Ben Higgins' season -- who also appeared on Bachelor in Paradise 3 last summer when she got engaged to Josh Murray -- shared an Instagram story of herself wearing shorts, and the phrase "LA" to "NYC" to "Paradise" is plastered across the image, along with plane emojis.
Raven Gates, who finished as Nick's runner-up on the latest season of The Bachelor, captioned a sexy bikini photo of herself on Instagram, "Sea you on the beach."
Lacey Mark from Nick's season posted a cute photo of herself in a one-piece bathing suit with the following caption: "Back to the beach we go."
"Well, I guess it's time to get hammered... again," he wrote alongside a picture of himself holding a hammer.
Production is scrambling to cast the rebooted season after Warner Bros. ended its "misconduct" investigation and resumed filming, People reported.
Warner Bros. found no evidence of wrongdoing or sexual assault allegedly associated with Corinne and DeMario's sexual encounter, which initially concerned a Bachelor in Paradise producer because Corinne reportedly appeared too intoxicated to provide proper consent.
The cast will reportedly include new faces as well as original cast members. New bachelors and bachelorettes will be added to the mix as original cast members decline their invitation to return to Sayulita, Mexico for Season 4.
When contestants were called about the opportunity to film this week, they were reportedly told "a new adventure" awaits them and they must clear their schedules until the end of July 2017.
Many cast members were required to be immediately available to participate in the reboot, but they'll allegedly be compensated $12,500, with an opportunity to earn more money.
It's unclear whether Corinne and DeMario will stage a Paradise comeback; however, a source told The Hollywood Reporter that DeMario is hoping to return. On the other hand, an insider told E! News "there is no way" Corinne will come back.
On Tuesday, Warner Bros. had no comment as to whether Corinne and DeMario would resume filming alongside their castmates.
According to The Reporter, cast members were told they'd be returning to Paradise for an extended filming period through July 5. Originally, the season was scheduled to be filmed from June 1-27, with the premiere airing Tuesday, August 8 on ABC.
The fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise kicked off filming June 4, but production was shut down on June 7 after a producer filed a complaint to Warner Bros. because she was allegedly "uncomfortable" with the footage.
Warner Bros. therefore plans to "implement certain changes to the show's policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants."
