The source with knowledge of the situation told CNNMoney that a male and female contestant were filmed engaging in sexual acts on the first day of production in Sayulita, Mexico. (CNNMoney is choosing not to identify the people involved in the encounter because its unclear if it involves sexual assault.)
For the next two days production continued. The source said "there was no indication" there had been an incident of alleged sexual misconduct.
"The next day [the male and female contestants involved in the encounter] were talking and seemed friendly with each other. The only odd part was that producers were not allowing [the female contestant] to drink, and she seemed really frustrated by that," the source said.
By day three production had been halted. The cast remained on set without the cameras present, and the male and female contestants involved in the incident had "mysteriously" disappeared from the set, the source said.
The contestants sat around and discussed over the next three days what had happened, and then they were moved off site to a hotel for two days before being sent home. The cast was told that there had been a "third party complaint" as explanation for why production had been halted, according to the source.
The "Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor In Paradise" franchise has at times been criticized for the actions of contestants who become intimate as part of their quest for romance.
"It's very clear [in the contract] that you have zero expectation of privacy and there are recording devices anywhere and everywhere. There's no caveat that says they won't film certain things," the source said. "You also relinquish your rights to be portrayed negatively."
"Bachelor" franchise host Chris Harrison released a statement about the controversy on Tuesday.
"Let me start by saying the safety and care of the cast and crew of our show is of the utmost importance to us. It is with this thought in mind that we made the decision to suspend filming. An investigation into the situation was started immediately. Warner Bros. is handling the details of that investigation. They're moving quickly to gather all the facts, and once that's done a clear concise decision can be made about where we go from here," Harrison wrote.
"Bachelor in Paradise" was scheduled to return to ABC in August.
"We're sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this may have caused the cast, the crew and our loyal fans. It is my sincere hope that we can come to a quick resolution on this and get back to work very soon," Harrison added.

DeMario Jackson revealed in an interview with Inside Edition that he’s been fired from his job following allegations of sexual misconduct on set of season 4 of Bachelor In Paradise.

“My character has been assassinated. My family name has been drug through the mud,” Jackson told Inside Edition, according to a press release obtained by Us Weekly. “The only thing I want is for the truth to come out. I feel like the truth will be able to come out in those videos.”
Jackson told Inside Edition that he’s since been fired from his job as an executive recruiter and that he doesn’t blame castmate Corinne Olympios for losing his job, he just wants the “truth” revealed to clear his name.
“I don’t blame anyone right now,” Jackson said. “All I want is the tapes.”

'Bachelor in Paradise' Contract Says Producers Not Responsible for Corinne Olympios, DeMario Jackson's Sexual Encounter'

Now that Corinne Olympios appears headed for a legal showdown with producers of "Bachelor in Paradise" ... the contract she signed becomes extrememly relevant, and problematic.
The contract contestants sign, obtained by TMZ, says in part all contestants waive their right to sue producers over claims of "negligence, personal injury (including without limitation, any injuries arising out of the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease or unwelcome/unlawful contact or other interaction among participants)." The short of it ... even if she was in a blackout state when she was engaged in sexual activity with DeMario Jackson, the producers would not be responsible. There's a catch ... courts have made it clear in situations involving similar contracts, if the producers were reckless that clause would not be enforceable. And it would seem watching someone incapable of giving consent to sexual activity and allowing it to happen ... is reckless. And still another catch ... as we reported, people who have seen the video tell us Corinne seems lucid and engaged during the entire swimming pool episode.
To be continued ...

Corinne Was 'Very With It' In the Pool
... Claims Cast Member

Corinne Olympios was topless in the pool with DeMario Jackson and so aware of her surroundings, she greeted a cast member walking by, showing no signs of distress -- but Corinne's attorney isn't buying it.

Sources close to the "Bachelor in Paradise" cast tell TMZ ... one female cast member walked right by the pool when Corinne and DeMario were hooking up, and saw her with her top off and her legs wrapped around him. We're told Corinne yelled out to the passerby by name and seemed "very with it" ... coherent.

The cast member told others she would have done something to break up the pool tryst if she felt Corinne was too drunk. Further, the cast member says cameras followed her when she walked by ... so the whole encounter should be on tape.

Corinne's attorney, Marty Singer, tells TMZ ... "If nothing inappropriate happened, why did production get shut down? Something serious clearly happened."

The female cast member says Corinne talked about the DeMario hookup the next day because she was upset her boyfriend, back home, would find out -- but she never heard Corinne say anything about it being non-consensual.

Bachelor in Paradise contestant Jasmine Goode says co-star Corinne Olympios not only interacted with DeMario Jackson but also "forced herself on three male cast members when they were unable to consent" on the day of an alleged incident of misconduct, of which the latter woman has said she is a victim.

Production on the ABC reality show was shut down last week. Production company Warner Bros. had said in a statement that it was suspended amid "allegations of misconduct" on the set in Mexico and that the group is "conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations." It did not provide details.

A producer had filed a complaint questioning whether Olympios was able to give consent for a sexual encounter with co-star Jackson. Insiders told E! News that the producer did not witness the alleged incident.

"The day of the incident under investigation, Corinne did not display any change in behavior from what was observed by the cast on her season of The Bachelor," Goode said in an exclusive statement to E! News. "Corinne forced herself on three male cast members, when they were unable to consent, in addition to engaging with DeMario. After the incident everything seemed fine. There was no mention about being hurt. However, when producers tried to cut her off from drinking, she got upset and said, 'Watch, watch what I'm gonna do.'"

"The cast is not encouraged or forced to engage in any behaviors or to drink alcohol," Goode continued. "Producers check in to make sure the cast is comfortable and accommodate to the needs requested."

Olympios' attorney, Marty Singer, told E! News, "Several cast members and producers have come forward confirming the facts disclosed by my client."

"If nothing improper occurred on the set of Bachelor in Paradise, why was the production shut down within two days of production?" he said. "Shutting down production of a television series is almost unheard of. The investigation and subsequent shutting down of the series was initiated based on complaints made by producers on the set of Bachelor in Paradise."

Neither party at the center of the ongoing 'Bachelor' spinoff controversy has seen the footage of the alleged misconduct incident.
As the investigation into what happened on the set of Bachelor in Paradise continues, the two castmembers at the center of the probe are hoping to get their hands on a key piece of the puzzle.
Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, who have each sought legal counsel, have yet to see the video footage that is said to have captured the alleged sexual incident on June 4, according to sources. Both contestants are now said to be seeking access to the footage, which remains in the hands of production company Warner Bros. Television.
“Corinne hasn’t seen the tapes,” Olympios' publicist Stan Rosenfield tells The Hollywood Reporter. “We just want to find out what happened and get to the bottom of it.”
Olympios’ attorney Marty Singer is said to have sent a letter earlier this week to Warner Bros. demanding that the studio hand over footage. It’s unclear if Warner Bros.’ attorney Zazi Pope, who is handling the matter for the studio, has responded. Those who have seen the tape include select producers who were on location at the Sayulita, Mexico, set and those at Warner Bros. conducting the investigation. Sources say executives at ABC, which airs Bachelor in Paradise, have not seen the tapes.

Olympios, 25, has retained top Hollywood litigator Singer to represent her, but it's not clear if Jackson, 30, has officially hired an attorney. He said in a statement he "will be taking swift and appropriate legal action until my name is cleared and, per the advice of legal counsel, will be seeking all available remedies entitled to me under the laws.” Jackson, an executive recruiter in L.A., also said he had lost his job and hopes that the footage will show he did nothing wrong. "I feel like the truth will be able to come out in those videos,” hesaid.
Warner Bros. executives hope to conclude the investigation within a week, according to sources.
News broke Sunday that Warner Bros. had suspended production on the upcoming fourth season of the Bachelor spinoff, which is still slated to bow Aug. 8 on ABC, after a producer suspected misconduct and filed a complaint during filming the previous week. The alleged incident is said to be a sexual encounter between Olympios and Jackson, who had both been drinking heavily. Warner Bros. halted filming and quickly launched an investigation, which included interviewing all 20 of the cast, along with about 25 of the crew, before sending them back to the U.S. on Sunday.

A source tells THR neither Olympios nor Jackson were aware that anything questionable had happened until they were approached by members of production and the cast the following day. In her statement, Olympios said she had "little memory of that night" and that "something bad obviously took place." The contestant hired top Hollywood publicist*Rosenfield to represent her and, in a statement, said, in part, "I am a victim."
Olympios appears "lucid" and "conversational" on the footage, a source says, but since alcohol was involved the issue of consent has been raised. At this point, both parties want access to the tape, sources add.
While most investigations into reports of sexual misconduct don't involve people whose lives are filmed 24/7, how large a role the tape will play depends on what was caught happening while cameras were rolling. It is possible that the video could help determine whether or not affirmative consent was given — which is required under California law. It could also make more clear exactly how much alcohol the contestants had consumed, which would factor into whether either or both of them were sober enough to consent.
Though Warner Bros. and Disney-owned ABC are protected by thorough contracts and top-notch corporate lawyers, both Olympios and Jackson could have cases if they are able to prove that the producers acted recklessly. Still, it's unlikely that it would get that far, and entertainment lawyers who have spoken to THR suggest that a settlement — potentially for both parties — is the most likely outcome.

Now, more than a week since the investigation began, Warner Bros. is likely to have reached a preliminary conclusion. "They don't care about the money it costs or the time it takes, they want to get to the truth of what happened," says a source. The fate of the season and Bachelor in Paradise series as a whole will be up to ABC, which is likely assessing the risk and reward of keeping the show on the air. The forces at play are the potential amount of revenue to be lost if the show is nixed and if that outweighs the unforeseen damage that could be done to the overall brand.
With the current season of The Bachelorette now airing — a new episode airs Monday — there is little distance between the two sister shows, who each have crossover contestants and a crossover audience. Olympios has so far made two appearances on Bachelorette, once on the premiere and another on the June 5 episode, and Jackson was a contestant until his May 29 elimination. Rachel Lindsay, who is leading the historic season as the first black Bachelorette, kicked Jackson off the show when a woman from his past claimed on-air that they had an unfinished relationship (he returned on the June 5 episode to ask for a second chance and was denied). Lindsay had invited pal Olympios, along with several other members of the suspended Paradise cast, onto the show for guidance.
Lindsay has yet to address the topic and it is unlikely that she will anytime soon, sources say. Production on the season has wrapped, though two upcoming live specials, the annual Men Tell All reunion show and finale After the Final Rose special, could serve as the platform to do so.
As for whether the tape will eventually come out publicly, the chances are slim. Because of the reportedly sexual nature of what was filmed, it's not in anyone's best interest for anyone other than the parties themselves and those conducting the investigation to view it.
Franchise host Chris Harrison, who did not see the incident in question, according to a source, had previously asked fans of the series to be "patient" until the investigation is concluded. Creator Mike Fleiss has been relatively quiet, taking only to Twitter to suggest "More to come," and express his love to the Bachelor Nation audience.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Engaged Star to ABC: Please Don't Cancel the Show (Guest Column)

With a possible cancellation of Bachelor in Paradise looming,*season-three alum Evan Bass is coming forward to defend the series on which he fell in love. The pair is*still set to tie the knot this weekend, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter, for the cameras and a select guest list despite the ongoing investigation.
Below, Bass begs ABC not to cancel the series, describes the protocol for alcohol on set and explains how he believes consent is and should be dealt with on and off the reality show.

Bachelor in Paradise is my show. It’s my jam. Personal redemption, lifelong friends and the woman of my dreams are just a few of the many takeaways I found living on set for weeks at the air-condition-less resort. When the news about Paradise production broke the internet, it also broke my heart. While to some it’s a silly TV show, for me, it was an experience that changed my life in unimaginable ways. I am troubled thinking about the allegations happening on my favorite beach, and I’m sad that some couples will not have the opportunity to find love in a powerful and unique way. I can’t help but think about [season-one couple] Jade and Tanner [Tolbert], the fast-approaching birth of their baby and how that beautiful family wouldn’t exist without Paradise. And for me, I will be forever grateful to Paradise for guiding me to an incredible stepmother to my own children.
Family creation aside, I’m equally disturbed by the way the production of the show is being portrayed. At first I wanted to stay quiet and let the dust settle before speaking out, but as the show has come under more sensationalized hostility and more unnamed “sources” speak out, I feel compelled to share my experiences with the show and its production team. Between Carly and I, we’ve appeared on five Bachelor-themed series, including appearances on the entire seasons of BIP two and three. So we know how this show works, why it works, and I’m going to tell you why ABC should keep the show.

I’m not here to pontificate about rumors or conjecture, and we must absolutely allow time for the truth to come out. In this day and age, people are happy to consume rumors and then regurgitate them in toxic judgment, but the truth has a way of weaseling its way to the surface. I’m anxiously hopeful that the full story is given the light of day before misinformation does any more damage. I’ve talked with several castmembers who were on-site, and from their perspectives, this was not anywhere close to what’s being portrayed in the media. The overwhelming theme from the cast is that although these allegations should be taken seriously, the actual events have been blown way out of proportion and that “consent” was not an issue that day or in the days following. Their anger is not so much directed at Corinne but more at the rogue “newbie” producers who manufactured something out of nothing. Now that Corinne has lawyered up, she’s following the natural path of a scandal by protecting herself, as she has every right to do.
Since I wasn’t involved and have no firsthand knowledge of the situation, I want to share my Paradise experience. When I first got the call to do Paradise, I was extremely nervous about joining the cast because of how terrible I came across on JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette. I felt kind of stupid about my behavior, and most of Bachelor Nation thought I was strange, to put it mildly. I avoided Twitter because I was constantly being trolled, and it honestly hurt a bunch. But I decided that if there was a chance I could find redemption, and maybe even love, that it was worth it. My heart was so ready to find a partner.
As someone who got a bad “edit” on The Bachelorette, it drives me nuts when news hits and former Bachelor contestants come out of the woodwork to cry about their bad edit or how terribly they were treated. Usually, it’s the ones who didn’t get the acclaim or followers they felt they deserved. But in all reality, we are at least cognizant of the fact that we may not look great. Most of us falsely assume we are going to come across on the screen looking like champions and don’t see ourselves as “villains,” so how could they make us look like that? But, for example, on JoJo’s season, I kept finding myself in situations where I would look silly and do abnormal things. But I did those things. I decided to give JoJo an ultimatum and then take it back five minutes later. I decided to make Chad [Johnson] my arch nemesis. Doing the show, for me, with no filter, opened myself to the Twitter jeering and pain that most desperately try to avoid. After not being my best self on The Bachelorette, I took time to reflect and learn from those mistakes, but I ended up looking “bad” because of decisions I made and faulty internal beliefs I chose to rely on about others and myself. I realized I was broken in places and had blind spots in others.

Ultimately, after licking my wounds, reflecting and getting support from my friends, I found a clear headspace on Paradise where I was able to (after some ambulance theatrics) win the heart of a beautiful, smart and wildly amazing woman. The experience also created a new layer of strength and emotional armor that has been invaluable. The Twitter trolls bother me less, and my relationships are richer because of the cumulative experiences. Most importantly, it made me a better dad. Parents, especially moms, are assailed for leaving their children to go on a reality show, but the journey is powerfully transformational for all the parents I know. We become better parents and cherish the time with our children to a degree that perhaps wasn’t possible without taking the time to work on us. The castmembers who get the most out of the experience are the ones who treat it as therapy. The dramatic and epic stuff is the large majority of what is televised, but some of the most valuable moments are the hours of talking that will never be shown. Generally speaking, the former contestants who gripe are the ones who can’t/won’t internalize their experience. It’s always easier to blame someone else than accept responsibility. Sure, there’s a nugget of truth in what they complain about, but at the end of the day, our actions and words are our responsibility, and we are never forced to do what we don’t want to do.
I can’t talk too much about our contracts with the show, but let me say this: It’s very, very clear that, as contestants, our actions and words are our responsibility, including alcohol consumption. But in reality, the producers are always there to help when things get fuzzy.
It’s common knowledge that there is alcohol on the show. But what I want people to know is that my friends and I were never once prodded or forced to drink alcohol. Hell, the furthest production goes is asking what type of beverage you’d like. And saying “water” is a perfectly fine response. On BIP season three, none of us imbibed to the point of being more than “tipsy,” except Chad — and he readily admits that he did that on his own, with no prodding. BIP naturally creates several degrees of pressure. Pressure because there’s cameras and pressure to find a match. The fascinating part to watch is how people deal with that pressure. Some get very quiet, some drink too much, and some, like me, do ridiculous things like fake my own death. That’s what makes the show interesting to watch. Alcohol is treated with the respect it deserves, and sometimes contestants are asked to stop. In fact, I wasn’t allowed to drink for two weeks because of medication I was taking, and although I badly wanted a glass of wine for rose ceremonies, the staff would come running from all directions to stop me when I tried to sneak a sip or order a drink. I’ve watched staff and producers stop many situations before they became a problem, even at the expense of making “great TV.” Their interventions were not only beneficial, but also truly assisted in my process of finding love.
There are many amazing people on staff to assist us when we were doing something stupid, but Chris Harrison and [bartender] Jorge are truly great men. Jorge was our sage, our muse and our shoulder to cry on. Harrison was there to chat at rose ceremonies and for the always-dramatic interventions. Jorge and Chris Harrison, like the producers, have two goals: to reveal character and assist in finding love — great TV naturally follows both of those things. The cast grows very close with the producers. There are hours and hours of unaired interviews where we talk about heart and soul issues. The producers helped guide me to a place where I was able to break down the barrier of my heart that “I wasn’t good enough for Carly”… and “I’m not good enough for love.” I had deep wounds in my heart, and — I’m crying as I’m writing this — they helped me heal. And that’s what they do — help us navigate feelings and make decisions that are in line with our values when we get stuck. They are always watching and always approachable for us when we need them. The producers I know would never allow someone to do something against their will or get to a place where something bad would occur. That’s what makes this situation so tough. I know this cast and the production staff so well, I find this alleged situation unimaginable.

On the other hand, I think we are all glad the production staff, ABC and Warner Bros. are taking it seriously. I know for a fact that no one on the show would want anyone to be violated in any way for ratings. The show doesn’t cast intentionally bad people. Sometimes contestants are misguided, ridiculous and narcissistic, but no one shows up ready to hurt someone. I don’t know DeMario [Jackson], but the castmembers I’ve spoken to that have gotten to know him say he’s a good guy. I just don’t believe that he thought he was hurting Corinne or that he knew she wasn’t able to give consent. But that’s where all men can learn. Getting approval not just once but multiple times is the right thing and should become our society's norm. In our society, we must learn to go above and beyond to make sure people feel safe. And I think the show is doing that by shutting down production to ensure they’ve done everything they can do to guarantee safety.
Another thing I often hear people trying to discredit the show say is, “There’s no way you can find love in a matter of weeks.” or “How could you really find love in a month?” Well, it’s quite amazing, actually. We spend all day, everyday with our fellow castmates. In a “real life” dating situation, you go on a date for a few hours, text a bit, maybe set up another date a few days later, and you do that for a few months. So Paradise condenses it. You quickly find out almost everything about a potential match, especially the important stuff. There is no “ghosting” or hiding behind phones. If you do run, the show holds you accountable. But really, you watch how people interact with others, what pisses them off, how they respond to pressure, even what foods they like. It was adorable watching Carly order avocado, eggs and a black coffee every single morning (and she still tries to have that for breakfast every day). Spending quality time with others is a lost art to the game of texting, but Paradise brings back QT. Carly and I sat on a beach for weeks talking. At first I creeped her out, but because of the time allowed to just hang after she friend-zoned me, she came to realize that she not only liked my flavor of creepiness, but wanted to marry it as well!
I’m sure people will say I drank the Paradise Kool-Aid, got paid to write nice things — which I didn’t — or whatever, but I truly believe in the show and its production staff. They are all good people who work harder than anyone I’ve ever met and are genuinely fighting for love, and a great story. I believe I have one of the most epic love stories of any reality TV love, and I don’t want these stories to end. I’m sure adjustments will be made, but ultimately one bad incident does not have to tarnish a show's legacy, and I’m sure as hell not going to let it affect my relationship with Carly in any way. I am incredibly grateful for the producers, the staff and everyone involved in Paradise for choosing to illuminate my story and help me become a better man.

But beyond the cast, the Bachelor shows are important to millions. The shows are a beautiful juxtaposition of parody and melodrama that illuminate on our own lives. Paradise and the other shows bring people together by helping us see our own ridiculousness. Live-tweeting has become a collective event. The shows, and especially Paradise, break stereotypes and help people learn about themselves as human beings. We identify with some of the characters, and we think about our experiences with people similar to those shown on the screen. I’ve received countless tweets and comments that Carly and I have strengthened relationships because couples identify with us. One girl said she was able to find love because her guy “is a lot like you, Evan.” She ended up giving him a chance, and now they’re happy. Another girl wrestled with self-hate and said watching us gave her hope. You may say I’m being too dramatic about a TV show, and I am definitely biased, but reading the awesome comments and watching the very real positive outcomes people have from watching make me happy.
The shows also highlights important topics the public wrestles with. This “scandal” has had the unintended consequence of bringing the discussion about “consent” to the forefront of people’s minds. Frankly, although the circumstances suck and no one wishes harm on anyone, the learning edge of this has been powerful. We all want healthy relationships and to be treated with respect. And as this plays out, it will help many people treat consent on a new level and understand personal responsibility versus the duty of others to act. The show has recently introduced Rachel [Lindsay] as the first African-American lead, and she is doing a fantastic job as the Bachelorette. Healthy conversations about race are happening everywhere because of it.
Let me reiterate by saying that I do not want to downplay the seriousness of this very difficult situation. My heart goes out to Corinne and everyone negatively affected by this. I pray for peace and healing to begin and personal growth for all. And Paradise must come back, if not this season, then next season. I want to watch love form and grow on ABC Mondays and Tuesdays. I want to watch the next steady Jade and Tanner and also the next roller-coaster relationship like I had. Love always wins, and I trust in Paradise.
