Who gets engaged on Bachelor in Paradise?
While there were no engagements during filming,_ Life & Style_ reported that during the upcoming live finale Derek Peth will pop the question to Taylor Nolan. Derek, 30, proposed to Taylor, 24, in front of the live studio audience — and there was not a dry eye in the house.
"Taylor, you are so intelligent, emotionally and intellectually. You have such a big heart and you’re so stunningly beautiful. Is she beautiful?" Derek said on stage before getting down on one knee. "I’ve been searching my whole life for my equal... Early on in our relationship I literally built a fire for you and figuratively you’ve since lit a fire in my heart. I choose to love you this minute, this hour and this day and promise to love you every day from here on out."
He continued, "Taylor Catherine Nolan, you make me the happiest man on this planet. Will you marry me?" A visibly shaken Taylor responded yes through tears before the cast erupted into cheers. Congrats to the happy couple!
Why was Bachelor in Paradise canceled?
On Sunday, June 11, production on Season 4 abruptly came to a halt after a producer filed a complaint about alleged sexual misconduct on set between co-stars Corinne Olympios (from Nick Viall's season) and DeMario Jackson (from Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette) — which quickly prompted an investigation by Warner Bros., the show's production company.
In the days following the scandal, multiple reports claimed that Corinne was drinking heavily and could not have consented to her sexual encounter with DeMario, which was filmed for the series. But he maintained his innocence, and less than two weeks later, Warner Bros. completed their investigation and filming resumed. After watching the tape from their hookup, it was concluded that no misconduct had taken place and Corinne was "lucid" and "fully engaged" during their encounter.
