While there will be Bachelor in Paradise 4 drama happening both Monday and Tuesday on ABC, it’s going to be the latter of the two shows that stands out to some out there. This will mark the first appearance of Corinne Olympios on TV since she filmed her now-controversial appearance on the show. She referred to herself as a “victim” in a statement released through her attorney in the past, and has insinuated that there was wrongdoing on the part of production for having the incident with DeMario Jackson get to the point that it did.
Ultimately, what we wonder is this: How unfiltered will this interview be, and where is her head at now in the aftermath of all that happened? ABC released a synopsis (see below) for the Chris Harrison sit-down, which seems to be coming at the conclusion of the Tuesday episode:
“…All of the crazy drama is open for discussion when some members of the cast join host Chris Harrison in a special studio session. A drama queen and her would-be king pay a visit to discuss their rocky relationship in Paradise. And finally, Corinne returns to tell her side of the story in her first public appearance since the events that started it all.”
Basically, this statement is ABC almost minimizing the significance of the interview already before it even happens, which almost reinforces more to us that this is not going to be as notable as many people assume that it would be. This is an edited interview on a reality TV show about an incident that happened months ago. The worst thing that came out of it seems to be that both DeMario and Corinne have seen their reputations damaged in some way on an unfair level. Once Corinne does finally speak out about this, it may be high time for everyone to be able to take a big step away from all of this and move forward. It’s certainly no surprise that the network choose to hang on to this interview until a little bit later, given the fact that DeMario’s interview this week was not anywhere near as notable. He’d spoken out to other outlets before Harrison, and his perspective on the matter was pretty clear: He was frustrated by the attention, felt as though the media villainized him, and also thought that he was treated differently because he was a black man involved in a scandal with a white woman.
DeMario has lived through his experiences and we’re therefore not one to question him. However, we do think that his interview history made him much less of a ratings draw.
