‘Bachelor In Paradise’s’ Jamie Doran Has Decided To Take Legal Action Against Channel 10

“After lengthy consideration, I’ve decided to begin legal proceedings against Network 10," he wrote to Instagram

When Jamie Doran first appeared on our screens during Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette, the firefighter was given the ‘stage-five clinger’ edit. When he returned for this season of Bachelor In Paradise, it didn’t take long for viewers to realise that the same storyline would unfold on his journey to find love the second time around. 

Doran has now revealed that he plans to take legal action against Network 10 and Warner Bros. Australia. He has decided to keep the details private. 

He made the announcement to Instagram, also asking people to respect his privacy. 

“This is not the news I wanted to post, but I feel I owe this to at least my family, friends, & also fans of The Bachelorette & Bachelor in Paradise,” he wrote. “After lengthy consideration, I’ve decided to begin legal proceedings against Network 10 & Warner Bros. Australia.”

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

Comments have been turned off for the post. 

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


People on Twitter were quick to discuss mental health on the show following an explosive night where Doran threatened to leave the show.

Host Osher Gunsberg weighed, writing to Twitter: “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.”

Following his time on The Bachelorette, Doran deleted all traces of the series from his social media pages. 

“I’ve been receiving death threats, I’ve had people asking for my address because they want to come around and punch me in the face, you know. That’s difficult,” he revealed in an interview with Now To Love.

Although, he did admit that watching it back his actions did come off a little too strong. 

“Look, I’ll own it. I was pretty intense,” he said at the time. “I was in there, in a competitive environment, and my emotions were quite heightened. It is a pressure cooker in there and it probably brought out the worst in me.”

More to come.
