Latest 'Bachelor in Paradise' details: Production halted after drunken contestants filmed 'licking' and 'intense[ly] rubbing'


New details have emerged following the production shutdown of "Bachelor in Paradise," which abruptly stopped filming in Mexico last week after a producer filed a formal complaint of workplace misconduct with Warner Bros.

The fourth season of the reality show was underway in Sayulita, Mexico when the production crew allegedly shot a drunken encounter between two cast members, a male and female. From there, the details have conflicted between media outlets -- and has continued changing over the past two days.

TMZ has reported an account of the events from the male cast member in question: He and the woman were allegedly told by producers that "one of the storylines would be the two of them hooking up." He was drinking at a bar when the woman came over and sat in his lap. Things escalated, and there was "intense rubbing" captured by the cameras.

She then invited him to get in a pool with her, at which time both reportedly stripped off their clothes and "started making out and 'rubbing, touching and fingering.'" The male says that at one point, the woman put her genitals in his face and he began licking. That particular allegation is, according to TMZ, "a big point of contention and others disagree with his account."

The two did not have sex, the male told TMZ, because he was unable due to the amount of alcohol consumption.

In contrast, sources speaking to People seemingly indicate that genital contact may not have been consensual: "The show absolutely values the primacy of consent, and this instance it appears as though conduct allegedly occurred without the proper consent having been given."

Los Angeles Times film writer Amy Kaufman was the first reporter to break details of the incident and its aftermath, tweeting that a source called it "soft core porn. They did not have sex. But it was very raunchy."

The following day, Kaufman confirmed, "a producer who witnessed this hook-up did not show up to work." The same producer then filed a "third-party complaint" alleging workplace misconduct.

All of the "Bachelor in Paradise" participants, who are past competitors from various seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," have reportedly been sent home. Fans reported seeing cast members in a Texas airport looking in good spirits.
