Former “The Bachelor”/“The Bachelorette” contestants Carly Waddell and Evan Bass, who appeared together on last year’s spinoff reality show “Bachelor in Paradise,” reportedly have married.
“So happy for Carly and Evan!!!” tweeted the ABC franchise’s creator and executive producer, Mike Fleiss, on Saturday.
Citing anonymous sources, People magazine said Saturday that the couple had married before a small group of family and friends at the Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta resort near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. That West Coast city was the shooting locale for “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 4 until production company Warner Bros. announced on Sunday, June 11, that it was suspending work on the show in order to investigation allegations of misconduct on the set. Contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios later confirmed they were the parties allegedly involved.
Waddell, who had appeared in “The Bachelor” Season 19, starring Chris Soules, confirmed the general location Sunday when she tweeted of Bass, “I love this mans heart and this mans mind” and giving a geotag of Bahía de Banderas, a small city in the state of Nayarit about 14 miles from Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta.
People magazine said that married “Bachelor/Bachelorette” couple Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert attended, and that series host Chris Harrison officiated. A photo posted to Pinterest with no clear provenance, and reprinted in People, shows what appears to be Waddell and Bass in wedding attire, standing on a grassy knoll overlooking the ocean, with Harrison between them.
Bass, a contestant on “The Bachelorette” Season 12, starring JoJo Fletcher, tweeted on Sept. 6 that he and Waddell had gotten engaged.
In additional wedding news, actor Josh Peck, 30, best known for the 2004-07 Nickelodeon series “Drake & Josh,” wed his longtime girlfriend Paige O’Brien in Malibu on Saturday, reported E! News. While Peck had posted an Instagram photo of himself in a tuxedo on June 5, saying he was “Getting ready for a big night coming up,” he has not commented on social media. An apparent wedding guest, Nicole Golfieri, posted a photo on Instagram Sunday showing Peck in a tux and O’Brien in a wedding gown, flanked by two couples that include John Stamos, Peck’s costar in the 2015-2016 ABC sitcom “Grandfathered.”
E! additionally said that Peck’s “Drake & Josh” costar, Drake Bell, had tweeted Sunday, “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear....,” but that post was later deleted.
