The dating show's host, Chris Harrison, confirmed on Monday that a male producer had a relationship with one of the female contestants during filming and that ABC had to address the situation on camera in an episode this season.
"It was incredibly unfortunate. Horrible decisions were made," Harrison told Sean Valentine, the morning radio host at KBIG-FM in Los Angeles. "It was embarrassing for us and in fairness to Jake and for the other women, [we said], 'Let's nip this in the bud and take care of it.' And that's what we did."
