‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Contestant Moves Forward With Independent Investigation

Jun 20, 2017  •  Post A Comment

The investigation into the June 4 swimming pool incident on the set of “Bachelor in Paradise” isn’t ending with the end of the Warner Bros. probe into the incident.

As we reported earlier today, Warner Bros. concluded that no misconduct had occurred and cleared the ABC reality show to resume production. But Corinne Olympios, who was at the center of the incident along with fellow contestant DeMario Jackson, has decided to move forward with her own independent investigation.

Martin Singer, an attorney representing Olympios, said in a statement today: “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.”

Singer’s statement adds: “It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal Investigation, would state that no wrongdoing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.”

As we reported earlier today, ABC officially confirmed that production was back on and that the show will air on the network this summer.

Olympios previously released a statement saying: “I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4. Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production.”

Olympios’ earlier statement also says: “As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality. … As I pursue the details and facts surrounding that night and the immediate days after, I have retained a group of professionals to ensure that what happened on June 4 comes to light and I can continue my life, including hiring an attorney to obtain justice and seeking therapy to begin dealing with the physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening.”


  1. I Am Woman hear me roar… Oops I got caught doing something I didn’t think anyone would see.
    I Am Woman… Now watch me try to get out of everything I did and blame it on someone else.
    Her actions on the Bachelor showed what she’s really like.
    I’m getting really tired of this crap!

  2. Sexual assault of any kind is despicable. If someone says no it means no. That being said, people need to take responsibility for their own actions. Do not drink so much you cannot remember what you did or said. How does she know she didn’t consent? If you are a woman and you get naked in a pool with a man, you shouldn’t be surprised if something sexual happens.

  3. Holding other people responsible for your own behavior. Now, how does that make her a victim? Having several other contestants on the show say that she greeted them by name when they passed the pool kind of tainted her incoherent and taken advantage of legal argument.
