“Bachelor in Paradise” Investigation Finds No Sexual Assault

Posted by Jeanne on June 20, 2017

After halting production on Bachelor in Paradise, Warner Bros. has concluded their investigation and found no reason to cancel production or press charges against any contestants. There were allegations related to Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, with some expressing concern over how much Olympios had to drink and whether she was in a position to consent to being sexual with Jackson. Based on a statement, we have clarity.

In response, ABC tweeted: “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.”

I guess they are going to have to really watch contestants, each of whom is an adult, more closely since they wouldn’t want to risk this happening again. Safety should be paramount after all, right? It will be interesting to see how this situation is handled when they air the show since fans will want to see exactly how this all went down.

Hopefully, this is a learning lesson for everyone involved, including viewers.
