Just in case you were wondering when we would see DeMario Jackson back on TV, he will grace the Bachelor in Paradise 4 reunion show.
Speaking per TMZ, Jackson confirmed that he will be present both for the upcoming reunion for this season plus also
“They’ve been very supportive of me throughout this whole entire thing and I want to all thank them, face to face, give them all hugs, bro-out, sis-out or whatever … They’ve been so helpful. I mean, I don’t think you guys understand the support that I’ve had from castmates and producers. I want to just give them all a big ol’ hug and tell them how much I love them.”
We assumed that Jackson would be present during the reunion show for Paradise, but his status at the Men Tell All special is a little bit of a surprise given how his time on Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette ended. Let’s just say that his time there didn’t end all that well, mostly because of his supposed girlfriend showing up while at a group date. He later came to try and apologize for what happened, but was then booted out for a second time.
Going into Paradise, odds that DeMario thought of this as an opportunity to earn some sort of redemption for what happened on The Bachelorette. However, that soon became impossible after an incident with Corinne Olympios the first night of filming that turned sexual and led to an investigation. Eventually, it was determined that there was no wrongdoing in what transpired on the part of either DeMario or Corinne, and the latter has now dropped her own investigation through her attorney.
For the record, DeMario tells the website that he has no ill will towards Corinne, and would be happy to speak with her:
“It’s not in me. That’s not who I am as a person, like, I’m not one of those petty people. I’m a very forgiving person. It’s just not in me. I mean, you attract more bees with honey, and if she’s willing to speak … we can talk on camera, off-line, whether it’s there or in the future, or 10 years from now.”
New episodes of Bachelor in Paradise will likely air a little bit later this summer; meanwhile, The Men Tell All is only a few weeks away from happening, and we imagine that this will be more than a little bit chaotic.
