Bachelor in Paradise

EXCLUSIVE: The Bachelor In Paradise bombshells Channel 10 producers tried to hide

Tears, tantrums and an escapee ... it's just another week in Fiji!

By Woman's Day team
The 2020 season of Bachelor in Paradise has proven to be one of its most dramatic yet.
And if you thought the stuff happening onscreen was wild, wait until you hear about what's been going down once the cameras stopped rolling.

Jackson hooks up with a producer!

While he had a smorgasbord of eligible Bachelorettes vying for his attention, it appears intruder Jackson Garlick only had eyes for one of the producers!
A source tells Woman's Day the producer was so enthralled by the boys, especially Jackson, 26, they ended up leaving the island together.
"She [the producer] had her eyes on a lot of the boys but she ended up hooking up with Jackson," the insider says, adding that the two hit it off so much they continued their romance after filming finished.
"They were seeing each other quite a bit after the show – they definitely gave it a red hot go."
While production would love to palm this off as an isolated incident, it appears this isn't the first time producers have fallen in love with their subjects!
"One female producer was fired from The Bachelorette after she became too involved with the boys and forgot about her job and what she was there to do!" our source reveals.

Bachie stars back with their exes!

They say you don't know what you've got until it's gone – and in Jake Ellis and Timm Hanly's case, Bachelor In Paradise made them go running back to their exes!
Despite being two of the most eligible Bachelors on the show, Jake, 33, and Timm, 27, were seen canoodling with their exes recently – and had no qualms about being affectionate in public, either!
In Melbourne Timm, who has struck up a surprise romance with Brittany Hockley on the show, was seen kissing ex-girlfriend Briana de la Motte as they hung out on the balcony of their home before walking hand in hand to get food, while Jake was spotted leaving his home on the Gold Coast, which he is believed to be sharing with his ex, 2016 Bachelor star Megan Marx!
Jake sensationally quit the show last week after revealing he wanted to have another go at his romance with Megan.
While he said it was still early days, the pictures of them looking very close as they left their home prove that the couple are very much on – again!

Furious Jamie flees the island

While production were sent scurrying across the island searching for an irate Jamie Doran, it seems viewers only saw half of the drama!
While fans were led to believe his dummy spit was about Timm Hanly, a source tells Woman's Day that the 40-year-old was worried about coming across as a "stage-five- clinger" again.
"Jamie knew that they were painting him as this obsessed person again, so he bolted," the source says.
Fleeing in the dead of the night, Jamie made it all the way to a bus stop where producers spent the next 30 minutes coercing him back.
"He wanted out – he'd had enough of the stage-five clinger stuff and hated that all the women were saying he was too old for them," the source adds.
"He was determined – he was headed for that airport and was going to fly home. He was feeling so low."

Disguised as fashion accessories, the cast members are given necklaces to wear that are adorned with their first initial, but it's not to add sartorial flair to their bikinis and speedos, but rather to help everyone remember their names!
"While some of the stars managed to keep relevant after their seasons, a lot faded into obscurity and some of them genuinely didn't know who some of the others were," a source tells Woman's Day.
"So producers came up with a way to help everyone remember everyone else's names – and it worked!"
The men wear tribal necklaces, and the women wear gold-plated versions.
