"Relationships that started to form in those first few days of original filming might be different now, or nonexistent -- and other cast members formed connections while filming stopped," the source revealed.

Production on season four of Paradise was shut down by Warner Bros. earlier this month after a producer filed a complaint of misconduct following a sexual encounter between cast members Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson. Warner Bros. announced on June 20 that they had found no wrongdoing, and that Paradise would resume filming with new "policies and procedures."

Though Olympios and Jackson announced that they would not be returning to the show, the source tells ET that host Chris Harrison and producers spoke with the returning cast about how things would change moving forward, and that "the two drink per hour rule was put into effect, but people are still having fun."

"The incident is being talked about on camera," the source revealed. "It has to be."
