Bachelor In Paradise Contestant Jamie Doran Says He’s Suing 10 & Warner Brothers

Bachelor in Paradise contestant Jamie Doran has announced on Instagram he will be suing Network 10 and Warner Bros. Australia over his BIP experience.

While he didn’t explicitly say why he will be pursuing legal action, B&T understands it may be due to his on-screen portrayal.

Doran’s character on the series has been a big talking point this season, especially his emotional reaction to finding out his “best mate” Timm Hanly had left Paradise (he hadn’t). Originally when Hanly told Doran he wanted to leave, Doran began sobbing.

He also packed his bags and tried to leave Paradise too, with rumours suggesting he made it as far as the bus stop before producers stopped him and told him Hanly had not in fact left.

BIP fans took to Twitter to express their concern over Doran’s mental health, with host Osher Günsberg reassuring that the network has a team of “mental health professionals” employed to assist contestants who may be struggling.

“It’s probably pertinent to point out that everyone on the show has full access to mental health professionals as well as support from the Warner Bros. Australia and Network 10 teams before, during and after production,” he tweeted.

“To be CLEAR. The amount of mental health support before/during/after production for the people on this show it significant. But you’ll never know who accessed it, who asked for it, and who continues with it because of privacy. But trust me, it’s ROBUST,” Günsberg added.

Now, Doran has said he will be pursuing legal action against 10.

He wrote on Instagram: “This is not the news I wanted to post, but I feel I owe this to at least my family, friends, and also fans of The Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradise,” he wrote in a note shared to Insta.

“After lengthy consideration, I’ve decided to begin legal proceedings against Network 10 & Warner Bros Australia.”

He added: “I’m not going to comment on this any further for the time being, and would appreciate it if people would respect my privacy.”

A Network 10 spokesperson said: “Network 10 has not received any papers regarding this claim.”
