Osher Says Bachie Stars Have ‘Access To Mental Health Professionals’ After Jamie’s Meltdown

On last night’s episode of Bachelor In Paradise, Jamie Doran had a meltdown after learning that his best mate Timm Hanly was leaving Paradise.

After Hanly told him he was exiting the competition, Doran began sobbing uncontrollably at the thought of having to remain on the island without his bud. He was so upset, in fact, that he then packed his own stuff up and left.

As Twitter became flooded with comments from concerned fans, Osher Günsberg stepped in and assured folks that the network has a team of “mental health professionals” employed to assist contestants who may be struggling with the process.

“It’s probably pertinent to point out that everyone on the show has full access to mental health professionals as well as support from the Warner Bros. Australia and Network 10 teams before, during and after production,” he tweeted.

He added, “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.”

Jamie has not yet commented on the episode or clarified what he was going through at the time.
