Bachelor in Paradise

Bachelor In Paradise stars defy Channel 10 producers and go completely rogue!

From bed-hopping to giving producers headaches, this season's contestants might be the craziest yet!

By Woman's Day team
As the latest crop of beautiful Bachelor rejects descend onto our screens on Bachelor In Paradise, you'd be forgiven for thinking that they're all focused on taking another shot at true love.
And while the cast certainly take plenty of shots, a source tells Woman's Day it wasn't necessarily at finding romance.
"Everyone just hooked up with everyone," the source says of the cast's time on the sandy beaches of Fiji.
"Compared to previous seasons, it's pretty wild."
The source adds that while the genetically blessed cast all loved being in each other's company, "there was no strong desire to create any meaningful connections".
While trailers for the upcoming show – which was filmed last year and has been delayed several times due to the pandemic – have teased love stories and even a proposal, the months-long gap between filming and airing could mean that any of the connections that blossomed on the island have since wilted away.

Indeed, this year's BIP contestants haven't been shy about teasing other possible romances, uploading Instagram stories of themselves cosying up to a host of new partners, which include past reality TV contestants.
Star Kiera Maguire was spotted kissing Love Island star Matt Zukowski in Melbourne, Timm Hanly was spotted on a loved-up road trip with his ex Briana de la Motte, and Jackson Garlick and Jamie Doran showed no qualms about snuggling up to Bachelor stars Emma Roche and Elly Miles on a boozy night out in Sydney.

There were some hopes of a lasting romance when Ciarran Stott and Kiki Morris were spotted walking hand-in-hand on a golfing date in Sydney, but Ciarran appears to have moved on with none other than former Big Brother star Tully Smyth.
The couple were spotted getting hot and heavy in recent weeks.
With the cast going AWOL, producers have been scrambling to take control of their social media accounts, but if recent posts are anything to go by, they're having little to no luck.

Angie Kent and Carlin Sterritt: Why they really split!

It was Australia's worst kept secret, however when The Bachelorette stars Angie Kent and Carlin Sterritt announced their split last week, fans were curious about the timing.
Many speculated the pair, who called it quits eight months after the final rose ceremony aired last year, had held off announcing their break-up due to the numerous sponsorship deals they scored as a couple.
Fans have long speculated the couple split months ago, despite the pair choosing to deny rumours on social media. Image: Instagram
But it's whispers of a certain contract ending that has everyone wondering if they delayed announcing their split.
"They got paid and had a contract. So romantic," one fan wrote on Twitter.
Last year, a source told Woman's Day that contestants were offered a further $100,000 if their relationship went the distance.

Jarrod Woodgate's PTSD nightmare

The former Bachelorette star opened up about his experience with PTSD after leaving the Australian Army. Instagram
Jarrod Woodgate has revealed he's been fighting a secret battle with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Jarrod, 33, says he has been suffering silently from PTSD for six years after spending 12 years in the Australian army – where he was falsely diagnosed with a life-threatening disease.
"I was diagnosed to have cancer, but it was a misdiagnosis," he revealed in an interview last week.
"I was told to sit in my room at the army base without any family or friends around and I just had to think about having cancer for that night."
Jarrod said he is now terrified of going to the doctors and regularly feels angry and anxious.
