Bachelor In Paradise , Is Returning After Investigation Finds No Sexual Assault Occurred On Set
Apparently, Warner Bros. determined that footage “does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. ” Bachelor in Paradise ” contestant Corinne Olympios released the following statement addressing the findings of the investigation of alleged misconduct onset of the reality dating show. It needs to be made crystal clear that production of “Bachelor in Paradise” was shut down because of multiple complaints received from “BIP” producers and crew members on the set. It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone,” her lawyer wrote. “It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrong doing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard. The investigation into the “allegations of misconduct” on the set of “ Bachelor In Paradise ” has concluded that no sexual assault took place.”
Host Chris Harrison and members of “ Bachelor Nation ” reacted to the news on Twitter: “We appreciate the swift and complete investigation by Warner Bros. into allegations of misconduct on the set of ‘Bachelor in Paradise.’ Given their results, the series will resume production and will air this summer on ABC.” Last week, a contestant, who chose to remain anonymous, said the whole mess began after producers put the cast on lockdown at the resort in Mexico following news of “misconduct” on set. “We knew something bad had happened; there was a dark energy that came around the house,” the contestant explained. “They stopped taping anything and we were just kind of there, waiting in limbo. We couldn’t talk to each other about what we knew. Finally, one of the camera guys told me that they were probably going to shut down production. I didn’t realize that it was that serious until then. I was like, ‘Wait, they’re thinking of canceling the show?’ It hadn’t even crossed my mind that they’d do that.” The cast members then found out they would be sent back to the U.S. amid an investigation and that their time on “Paradise” was ending. Now, they’re thrilled to be returning.
In the span of a single month, DiMario Jackson was exposed as a liar on national television, found himself at the center of a scandal that shut down production of “Bachelor in Paradise” and inadvertently jumpstarted a conversation about sexual consent and reality TV. Now, he’s reportedly not returning as a contestant on the dating show after it was concluded there was no misconduct during filming. Jackson was reportedly invited back to “Paradise,” but declined the offer. He believes “it’s not a good idea” to join the rest of the cast in Mexico for the upcoming fourth season of “Bachelor in Paradise,” according to a CNN source. Jackson has also apparently entered therapy for his anxiety in the wake of the scandal, TMZ reports and has no plans to return to reality TV anytime soon. Corrine Olympios will also not be returning to the show.
After Crying Wolf On A Possible Sexual Assault, Two Innocent People Have Been Completely Humiliated By The Press Exposure And Convicted On An Assumption?
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
I feel this was a case of over reacting and the press running with a hot scandal. Unfortunately, they forgot there is a law of privacy in sexual assault cases that protects the so-called victim’s identity and this was completely disregarded. Guaranteed, Olympios and Jackson are going to lawyer up on this one.
This card is of trust, faith and optimism. I feel this is how everyone went into this reality show and how it will all end.
Seven of Cups: Inverted (Upside Down)
This card is of many choices being presented with. Since inverted, I believe the producers over reacted and went into the mode of saving their asses if an actual assault had taken place, which Olympios stated from the beginning, it did not.
Four of Swords:
This is a card of just wanting to be left alone and emotional exhaustion. I feel it pretty much explains the whole energy of the situation.
