BACHELOR IN PARADISE participant Jamie Doran sues Warner Bros Australia

THE BACHELORETTE and BACHELOR IN PARADISE participant Jamie Doran has lodged claims formally, according to Sydney Confidential.

The column reports Doran has lawyered up, securing the services of Keith Redenbach of Redenbach Legal.

This comes off the back of Doran’s Instagram posts and multiple stories around his feeling he was hard done by in the latest series of 10’s ‘losers in love’ reality show. Doran had been painted as simple and selfish, with a distinct fascination for Timm Hanly, one of the other male contestants on the show. Doran maintains his objections were not just about a “bad edit”.

In his most recent Instagram post about the issue he says, “After lengthy consideration, I’ve decided to begin legal proceedings against Warner Bros. Australia.” Subsequent posts show Doran enjoying a visit with another Bachelorette participant, and revealing some footage of Bachelor in Paradise participant Brittany Weldon and Doran himself driving a high-end car to a luxury house as a part of a promotion.

Doran isn’t the first former reality TV contestant to sue the production company and network after their participation. As TV Blackbox previously reported Nicole Prince won a claim against Seven, where in part the ruling confirmed that reality TV participants are to be considered workers and subject to the same duty of care as regular employees.
