Bachelor in Paradise Shut Down Investigation Continues as the Show Remains in Limbo
The Bachelor in Paradise show is in a whole heap of trouble. As the investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct continues, a variety of stories have come out and it is hard to determine who is actually telling the truth. Both Corinne’s camp and DeMario’s camp tell a slightly different story but both sides seem to agree that the production staff is partially responsible for the incident.
Bachelor and Bachelorette fans were excited when the latest cast of Bachelor in Paradise was announced. It was a good mix of fan favorites and villains that would be sure to bring the drama. The show started shooting and then it was abruptly canceled. It soon came out that the show was cancelled due to alleged sexual misconduct on set. Rumors started swirling about who was involved and what happened. Soon after, two likely candidates were named and it was DeMario Jackson from the current season of the Bachelorette and Corinne Olympios from the last season of the Bachelor.
Both individuals were considered the villains of their season so it was no surprise that they ended up on the Bachelor in Paradise. According to reports, there was trouble from day one. DeMario and Corinne were told by producers that one of the story lines of the show would be the two of them hooking up. The two then met over at the bar and started to drink heavily. They then made their way over to a pool and started to engage in sexual activity. A producer who watched the incident unfold was so disturbed by what she saw that she filed a complaint with the parent company Warner Brothers and that is when production came to a screeching halt.
And this is where the stories start to vary. According to DeMario, Corinne was the aggressor the whole time during the sexual encounter. He says they took off their clothes, started making out and “rubbing, touching and fingering.” He says she put her genitals in his face and he began licking. He then says that he tried to have sex with her but could not perform due to the amount of alcohol he had ingested. He says that the next everything was fine between the two of them.
However, witnesses to the alleged sexual misconduct noted a different story. Witnesses said that Corinne was way to drunk to consent and appeared to go limp. A crew member said that, “DeMario kept trying to hold [Corinne] up and at the same time he appeared to be having intercourse with her. After he finished – which only lasted a few seconds – he lifted her out of the water and laid her on the cement, where he proceeded to have oral sex with her. She appeared to be unconscious.”
The the crew stepped in and helped Corinne back to her room. It was reported that the crew was deeply disturbed by what they saw and that is when the incident was reported.
Currently, no official statement has been made by either parties but DeMario has stated that he wants the video of the incident to be released to prove his innocence. It is rumored that Corinne has hired an attorney and that she is more made the production staff on the show than she is at DeMario. It was also reported that the two have been talking recently.
