'Bachelor in Paradise' Has a Strict New Rule Contestants Will Be Forced to Follow

Somehow, we're not exactly surprised to hear this. Following the sex scandal between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson earlier this month, Bachelor in Paradise has imposed a strict new alcohol policy for all participants on the show.

According to TMZ, castmates will be limited to just two alcoholic beverages per hour for the duration of filming in Mexico. The new rule comes after the alleged drunken sexual encounter between Corinne and DeMario earlier this month, which caused production to be shut down for several days while the matter was under investigation.

Warner Bros. found that no misconduct occurred and resumed filming after reviewing the tapes, but also imposed a prohibition of sorts on the remaining cast members.

Not only are they limited to two drinks per hour, but production sources also said that the crew is monitoring drinking levels of the cast, and that the bartenders have been encouraged to be more responsible for "keeping tabs" on the participants.

Plus they've made sure that there's plenty of food available, ostensibly to soak up those two-drinks-per-hour sloshing around in their stomachs.

Apparently alcohol was a big talking point after the incident in the pool occurred, and producers want to keep everything as above board as possible from here on out.

We'll just have to tune in later this summer to see if the new drinking rule affects the level of drama to which we've become accustomed. Hopefully it won't mean the end of Bachelor in Paradise as we know it.
