While it was all but assured that Corinne Olympios will not be a part of Bachelor in Paradise after what happened with her and DeMario Jackson earlier this summer, it’s now been officially confirmed. The reality star released a new statement today, one that made it clear that she will no longer continue her investigation into what happened that night.
Take a look at it in full below:
“In light of the overwhelming amount of misinformation that has been spread in the media, I want to clarify a few things. My intent over the past few weeks has been to learn and understand what happened on June 4. While I never filed complaints or accusations against anyone associated with Bachelor In Paradise, my team and I felt it was very important to be thorough in getting to the bottom of what occurred. I felt victimized by the fact that others were judging me through conflicting and unsubstantiated reports, while I myself had no recollection of the events that transpired.
“My team’s investigation into this matter has now been completed to my satisfaction. I am also happy about the changes that have been made to the production of Bachelor In Paradise. While I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been a participant on The Bachelor, and while I was invited to return to Bachelor In Paradise when production resumed, I respectfully made the decision not to.”
Some of the changes that Corinne is speaking about her include an alteration to the number of drinks contestant can have per hour, and more control over who hooks up. Maybe this will make the show a little less crazy, but it was never about being crazy in the first place — at least if it’s going by the original vision, which was to give people opportunities to find love. This did happen last summer with Evan Bass and Carly Waddell, and it could happen again, even if we are technically dealing with a shorter period of time this year that the show is filming and there is all of the aftermath that came from the original incident.
