DeMario jackson says “Bachelor in Paradise” producers tried to coach him to quit the ABC reality show shortly before a sex scandal with co-star Corinne Olympios temporarily caused Warner Bros. Television to shut down production of the “Bachelor” spinoff in Mexico. In a new interview with E! News, Jackson admitted his poolside rendezvous with Olympios was “the wildest night” of his life, but he made it clear that he made sure cameras followed the couple’s every move.

Spidey sense

Describing his intuition as his “Spidey sense,” DeMario said he had a feeling the hot and heavy hookup would come back to haunt him so he wanted make sure, especially as an African-American man, that cameras documented every X-rated second of the encounter.

According to Jackson, he first met up with Olympios at the “Bachelor in Paradise” bar where they discussed their mutual status as “villains” on the ABC franchise.

It wasn’t long before they each downed a few drinks and ended up naked in the pool. DeMario said Corinne still did not appear to be drunk, but that things got very wild in the pool. Jackson alleges that Olympios was the “aggressor,” and adds that later in the night the blonde beauty hooked up with fellow castmate Derek Peth as well as two other males.

Jackson was caught off guard

Jackson revealed he was blindsided the next day when producers approached him about the incident.

DeMario claims Corinne was not mad about the events of the previous day, even giving him a hug before breakfast, but she revealed that production had cut her off from drinking. But later in the day, Jackson says he was called in to talk to “Paradise” producers and was instructed to “bow out” of the show. Jackson claims he was told to tell Chris Harrison and the rest of the crew that he was thankful for the experience, but to admit that “you’re not here for the right reasons.”

The “right reasons” is an ongoing theme on “The Bachelor” franchise.” Every season of "The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” typically has several cast members who sign on to the show to find fame, not love, and they are slammed for not being on the show for the “right reasons.”

Jackson added that he was told if he didn’t quit the show on his own immediately, things could get “bad.”

According to People magazine, Corinne Olympios issued a statement in which she claimed to be a "victim” in the events that occurred on June 4.

Corinne has also said she has “little memory” of what occurred that night. The reality star has hired celebrity attorney Marty Singer to conduct their own investigation into the “Bachelor in Paradise” scandal. The ABC reality show resumed production in Mexico last week—without Jackson or Olympios on board.
