Bad move, guys. ABC just released a teaser for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, and it looks like they're trying to capitalize on that whole sex scandal that happened between former cast members Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson.

It's obviously alluding to the fact that there almost wasn't a new season of the show this summer, as filming was shut down following allegations of sexual misconduct between Corinne and DeMario.

Basically, they set a drink limit.

The Internet was not having it, either. Do better indeed.

That's really more interesting anyway.
