Production on the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise was shut down over the weekend after a situation between contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios concerned a producer. The producer reportedly complained when production staff didn’t step in to stop a questionable hook-up between a drunk DeMario and an allegedly too-drunk to consent Corinne in the pool. Warner Bros. said they are investigating, and Corinne has hired a lawyer. Everyone was set home from the Bachelor in Paradise location in Mexico. TMZ and Entertainment Tonight caught up with DeMario in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and he had a tiny bit to say about the accusation.
Bachelor in Paradise is a great show that gives viewers what they don’t get nearly enough of on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette: drunken antics, messy fights, and sloppy hook-ups between a cast of fame whores competing for cash. But things got a different kind of messy after some on-set sexual abuse allegations were made by a producer against a cast member.
