Jasmine Goode, another contestant on “Bachelor in Paradise” has come forward, defending DeMario Jackson. She says that DeMario is a good guy, and alleged that Corinne came onto DeMario, was never “limp and sliding under water,” and that DeMario couldn’t even “get it up” due to drinking.
Jasmine started by saying that she has “nothing but love” for castmate Corinne Olympios, and knows her well, on-and-off camera. She says “I was taken back with Corinne’s statement that she’s the victim. That may be the role she plays on the show, but it’s a role,” later saying “I don’t believe she was a victim or traumatized. The statement she released doesn’t even sound like her. It sounds like someone wrote it for her.” Jasmine even said that Corinne never seemed unhappy or bothered at all about what happened in the pool that night, and says that they were even hanging out the next day. Jasmine even thought they were going to end up as a couple.
“As a woman, I would have been the first person to step in if I thought she was being taken advantage of in the pool with DeMario. She even said hi to me when I walked by them,” Jasmine says. Another anonymous tipster, reportedly a friend of DeMario says “Corinne was tipsy but not so drunk she didn’t know what she was doing in the controversial shoot for the show,” according to this article.
DeMario has also reported being fired from his day-job as an executive recruiter, according to an interview that aired last night.
As another addition to the story, it looks like producers of the show are in the clear, as evidence by the contract that the contestants sign which states they waive their rights to sue in the event 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).”
