‘Bachelor in Paradise’ cast forced to evacuate as tropical storm hammers resort

On Tuesday’s Bachelor in Paradise, while the cast focused on trying to weather the storm that is finding love on a tropical island, it turns out they also had to try and weather something else - an actual tropical storm. With thunder rumbling in the background, the show’s producers approached the set to let everyone know that things were getting serious.

“There's a dangerous tropical storm rapidly approaching. And as of an hour ago, it's headed straight for us,” a producer said. “So for the safety of all of you guys, our staff, and our crew, we are recommending that we evacuate immediately. We actually believe it's no longer safe for you guys to stay in Paradise.”

Luckily, and much to the joy of viewers who were mostly concerned for the camera man left behind to capture b-roll footage of the storm, the resort did not sustain much damage and the cast was able to return.
