Following the scandal surrounding accusations of misconduct pertaining to a potentially non-consensual sexual interaction between castmates on the current season of Bachelor In Paradise, it was unclear if the alleged victim, Corinne Olympios, would return to the show. Her alleged abuser, DeMario Jackson, recently admitted to TMZ that he does plan to come back to the program for the reunion — in order to thank his castmates for supporting him while he fended off accusations. Now, according to CNN, Corinne will appear on the show in the future as well.
"I am very happy to be appearing on the 'Bachelor In Paradise Special,'" Olympios said in a statement to CNN.
Warner Bros. had previously conducted an investigation into the accusations and concluded that no wrong-doing had occurred. Olympios' legal team conducted their own investigation into the situation as well and decided to move on as well, although it was unclear as to what conclusions they reached or if any settlements had occurred behind the scenes.
"[Corinne is] excited to finally come out and speak," a source close to Corinne said to E! News. "They invited her to appear on the reunion and she wants to go. It's not a contractual thing. She's still close with her Bachelor family. She's looking forward to being back."
The source added there was no "bad blood" between Olympios and Jackson.
"It's not a big deal" for Corinne as "she never blamed him for anything," the source added.
The debut of BiP was originally set for August 8th, but has changed into a two night event to be shown on August 14th and 15th.
