Bachelor in Paradise may have resumed filming of season four, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t major changes set in place before the cast returned to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

According to TMZ, there is now a two-drink maximum rule per hour for the contestants. Both the crew and bartenders will be monitoring the drinking levels of each contestant as well as provide food for them at all times to prevent them from getting intoxicated.

Warner Bros. promised there would be new rules implemented after the incident between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, which shut down production for an investigation.

The production company confirmed no misconduct had occurred between the two contestants.

Jackson recently sat down for his first interview since Warner Bros. finished the investigation and cleared his name. He spoke about the emotional toll the scandal took on his family, especially his mother.

"It was stressful. For me, mostly for my mother," Jackson told E! News. "It's hard to see your mom cry every single day. It was very difficult."
