During The Bachelorette’s July 21 Men Tell All special, ABC was hyped to promote their new spin-off series Bachelor in Paradise, giving audiences a sneak peek at the show with a salacious extended promo. We saw kissing, crying, and cat fighting, and at the end of the promo we even saw someone in handcuffs…Ruh roh. Did someone get arrested during filming?

A viewer posted just that question to spoiler king Reality Steve via Twitter, writing “what was with the arrest scene in the Bachelor in Paradise preview?” Talk about looking for love in all the wrong places — what was with that arrest scene?! And, more important, what’s ABC’s budget for bail money?


Steve set all our minds at ease, however, tweeting back “that doesn’t mean someone is arrested. It’s what they want you to think happened. It didn’t.” Oh those tricky editors. Whew! While we do love our drama, we kinda prefer infighting and ocean makeout sessions to someone actually landing jail time. No bueno!

Wait, so what was happening with the handcuffs then? And were they the pink, fuzzy kind? Maybe ABC is getting a little less family friendly with this new dating series…

BiP premieres in two more weeks on August 4, so it looks like we’ll have to wait until then to see the who, what, when, where, and why of those cuffs in Paradise. We’re especially looking forward to finding out the who. Can’t wait!

What do you think is happening down in Paradise? Tell us in the comments.
