Production To Resume On 'Bachelor In Paradise'

Corrine Olympios and DeMario Jackson
The studio behind “Bachelor in Paradise” has concluded no sexual misconduct took place between contestants, Warner Bros. addressed in a statement Tuesday.

“As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ in Mexico,” the statement read. “We take all such allegations seriously.”

The NY Post reports Warner Bros. originally shut down production of the fourth season of the ABC reality series amid allegations of a sexual encounter between contestants DeMario Jackson, 30, and Corrine Olympios, 24. After launching an internal investigation with the assistance of an outside law firm, the studio confirmed the footage did not support claims of sexual misconduct by a cast member.

“Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident.

“We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member,” the statement continued. “Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy.”

“Bachelor in Paradise” will resume filming, though changes will be made to the show’s policies and protocols to enhance the safety and security of those involved.

Production of the fourth season of the reality series was shut down amid allegations co-stars DeMario Jackson, 30, and Corinne Olympios, 24, engaged in questionable activity in a pool at the resort where filming took place. The cast had been sent home from Mexico as a result.
