Bachelor In Paradise stars made secret ‘cash-pacts’

It was supposed to be a reality dating show for lovelorn singles hoping to find new romance.  

But for a handful of contestants, Bachelor In Paradise was simply a convenient way to make a quick buck, an insider has claimed.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia this week, a source revealed that contestants were paid $600 a day to stay on the show, prompting some cast-members to create secret plans off camera.

‘They had agreements to keep each other on the show for money’, the insider said. 

‘People knew each other so they formed alliances to keep each other in longer to keep the cash rolling in.’ 

Meanwhile, another spy told Daily Mail Australia: ‘The girls partnered up with some of the boys before the show even started filming, making pacts to keep each other on the show’.

‘For half of the contestants, $600 is a massive pay-day. It’s obvious why some of them were keen to stay in Paradise.’

According to several insiders, Florence Alexandra and Davey Lloyd formed an agreement before Davey was eliminated on Tuesday night’s rose ceremony.

There were also reportedly pacts made between Jack Ellis and Megan Marx as well as between Michael Turnbull and Leah Costa.

Despite these claims, Bachelor In Paradise host Osher Gunsberg has adamantly defended the intentions of contestants on the show. 

‘[Bachelor franchise stars] come to that mansion and they want to find love. They’re all genuinely there for the same thing and not all of them make it to the end. Not all of them stand on the beach in Thailand and say ‘Hey, let’s do this”, he told News Corp last week.

‘Some of them get their hearts broken, and to be able to have the opportunity [on Bachelor In Paradise] to give these people what they came to us to find, is really great,’ he said.  

Osher also assured fans that genuine love stories would be told on Bachelor In Paradise this season, explaining that: ‘Through the process people really do fall in love and really powerfully so.’
