Bachelor In Paradise Controversy: 9 Shocking Revelations
The Bachelor spin-off series Bachelor in Paradise is getting a ton of press right now and for all of the wrong reasons. Ever since news of the scandal involving Corinne Olmpios (from Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor) and DeMario Jackson (from Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette) were involved in the incident that shut down production, people have been dying to know what’s going on. Although the story is still developing, here are 9 shocking revelations from the controversy:
9. Production Suspended
On June 11, Warner Bros. released a statement announcing that Bachelor in Paradise had been suspended after allegations of misconduct were reported by a producer. “We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action,” the statement read.
8. Sexual Assault Allegations
The following day, it came out that production was shut down because a producer raised concerns about an alleged sexual encounter between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson. According to reports from TMZ, Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson had been drinking heavily all day when they began drunkenly hooking up in the pool. Producers filmed this; however, when the producer who had been assigned to Corinne later heard about the incident she was worried that she may have been too intoxicated to consent.
