‘Bachelor in Paradise’ covered all its bases on Tuesday night — someone voluntarily left the island, and Chris Harrison hosted a Q&A with DeMario Jackson.
Emotions were running high this week, courtesy of Chris Harrison — he sat down for a discussion with DeMario Jackson. Following the allegations on Bachelor in Paradise, he got the chance to say side of the story. He and Corinne Olympios “got turned up” night one, he admitted, adding that they were making out within the hour. “She’s like, ‘Let’s go to the pool?’ Who would say no to Corinne?” DeMario said, adding that they went to the pool and it got “a little intense,” but he didn’t think anything of it.
The next morning, he and Corinne had a normal conversation about baking! When the cameras stopped rolling, he thought he was just kicked off the show. “I had sent Corinne a message, joking [saying] like, ‘We broke Paradise!,'” he admitted, thinking it was all good fun, and that they just got too crazy.
When he went home, he found out how serious the situation was. He actually broke down recalling reading a specific article that claimed he had sex with a “limp” Corinne — something that really, understandably so, pissed him off. So how did he get through it all? “Family, friends, and Kanye West.” He also admitted he really felt for Corinne.
“I love women in my family, more than anything in this world but it hurt me knowing that she was going through the same thing I was, but probably worse,” he said, adding he knew she was getting slut-shamed and that wasn’t okay. Next week, we’ll hear from Corinne.
Meanwhile On The Beach…
We do have to highlight what happened elsewhere in Paradise — the first hour focused on the relationships still forming back in Mexico. Adam and Raven may have clicked last week, but when Sarah entered, she asked him out on a date — they apparently had a fling during the filming hiatus, so that makes sense. Lacey also seemingly lost a man this week; after receiving a date card, she tried to find someone to click with. She chose Diggy, seemed to have a connection with him… but then he moved on the minute Dominique (apparently she’s from Nick’s season?) showed up.
The most interesting part of the episode though was Danielle M.‘s story. While the show was on hiatus, she got an offer to go help kids in Kenya. Since she hadn’t found love anyway, she decided it was time to go. Then, on her walk out, she was surprised by a romantic kiss from her longtime friend Wells! We have to say, it was hot. So maybe one day, it’ll be more? They even made a deal to get together if they’re still single in five years.
HollywoodLifers, were you shocked by Danielle leaving?
