Corinne Olympios Will Appear on the 'Bachelor in Paradise' Reunion Special

The premiere of Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 is still a month away, but the drama surrounding this season never seems to stop. Earlier this week, DeMario Jackson announced he would attend The Bachelorette’s Men Tell All special and a BiP reunion, despite being one of the cast members tied to BiP’s alleged sexual misconduct. The other cast member involved in the scandal, Corinne Olympios, has now confirmed that she will also appear at the BiP reunion special, Cosmopolitan reports.

“I am very happy to be appearing on the Bachelor in Paradise special,” Corinne said in a statement. After an investigation concluded that no sexual misconduct occurred on set and filming resumed, Corinne declined the offer to return to the show.

Seeing as she turned down the chance to be a full cast member again, it’s a little surprising that Corinne will join the reunion. While speaking to E! News, a source close to Corinne said, “She’s excited to finally come out and speak. 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 also claims that there’s “no bad blood” between Corinne and the BiP crew and that “it’s not a big deal” for her to see DeMario again. We’ll have to wait and see if these reports are true.

Forget the rest of the cast appearing on BiP this year—I’m tuning in just to see how the action between Corinne and DeMario plays out.
