Corinne Olympios Speaks out on 'Bachelor in Paradise'


It's both notable and disappointing that the show chose to air Jackson and Olympios's sit-downs a week apart, rather than in the same episode or at least in the same week. When talking about why this all happened, Olympios insisted that she didn't understand.

In June, production on season 4 was temporarily suspended after two show producers voiced their concerns after a sexual encounter between Olympios and Jackson was caught on camera. "I was a victim of, you know, just being blown into the media and having people make these insane assumptions and judgments about what happened that day", she said.

Olympios said she is now "doing a lot better", and she wants "people to know that I don't blame DeMario". The combination of the two is just not a good combination.

"I definitely, um, I am weening off that medication". There's no way for you guys to know that she's, like, mentally checked out-Corinne is not here right now. Since the scandal, Olympios said she has been weening herself off the medication and cutting down on drinking.

The reality star, 24, admitted that she had little recollection of the incident, as she had unknowingly mixed medication and alcohol. (Corinne later clarified she felt victimized by the press as well as people with judgments and assumptions about the scandal). It completely imbalances you. It soon came to light the alleged incident involved Olympios and DeMario Jackson. I know exactly how he feels. "It's just so heart-sinking to go through something like that.Obviously hindsight is 20/20 and I just wish it could have been handled differently". I definitely over-drank ...

She added: "So it really just caused a disgusting, terrible blackout. It just really sucks".




"In Corinne's statement, she referred to herself as a victim, " Harrison said.

"I was a victim of just being blown into the media and having people make these insane assumptions and judgments about what happened that day".

As Nicki Swift previously reported, the investigation began after a producer expressed concerns that Olympios was too drunk to have been able to consent to sex.

Having concluded that no misconduct had transpired, the show resumed filming. "I wish you all the best and I'm sorry". "I'm not what you're thinking right now". "A victim of having something this serious happen to you and have the media paint you a certain way that you know you aren't and having all these people make their judgments and comments and they don't even know what happened or went on".

What did you think of the BIP shutdown? Let's just whatever, and the next thing I know, DeMario's saying this, this, and this, and I'm like, 'Why?'. I never pointed fingers at DeMario. I don't want to be taking something that...you know, it was very scary what happened. I'm so sorry that you had to go through this.
