Frantic producers are said to be scrambling to find a way to film the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The show usually films every November at Fiji's Mango Bay Resort - however with most interstate borders still firmly closed and international travel mostly out of the question, it seems unlikely that contestants will be able to fly out for the series.

However, The Wash reports there may still be a glimmer of hope, as they claim producers have already 'approached big names' from the Bachelor franchise to star in the series, and are looking at popular tourist hotspot Noosa in QLD as a potential back-up location.

According to the publication, the idyllic resort town 'has been discussed as a potential location, depending on what happens with Queensland's border and if they can get the cast and crew there.'

Some of the franchise's 'key alumni' have reportedly been promised that if this season goes ahead, then they will definitely be on the show.

However, stars from this year's The Bachelor and the yet-to-be aired The Bachelorette have not been approached for the next season of Bachelor In Paradise as of yet.
