If “Bachelor In Paradise” is going to turn into a he-said-she-said, things are going to get really weird. The weirdness is starting with DeMario Jackson and his first interview with “E! News,” where he described in detail everything that happened during his brief time on the show.
DeMario made it very clear that he was made out to be the villain following his fake girlfriend fiasco on “The Bachelorette.” He said that originally he connected with Corinne Olympios over being villains and they decided to be villains together.
DeMario recalled it didn’t take long for things to heat up, “Our first real conversation was at the bar. We were hanging out. We kind of were just complimenting each other on being villains. I was like, ‘Look, I’ve accepted this role.’ We were kind of just laughing, like, ‘Oh, we’re about to dominate Paradise!!‘ Like homie stuff, like really, really like friends. And then, you know, we started having a little bit more fun…and had a few drinks. From the bar scene, it got a little hot and heavy. She got in my arms, and we started making out at the bar.”
When pair left the bar and headed to the pool, DeMario shared that he made sure the cameras followed them, “She’s like, ‘Let’s go to the pool, let’s go hang out,'” he continued. “It’s crazy because when you’re a man—mostly African American man—no matter where you’re at, you always look for things that can help you out. And at that moment, I made sure the cameras followed us. It just seemed too perfect in a sense for me, and at the point, that’s when my spidey senses got up.”
By the time the pair got to the pool, DeMario said that Corinne was making all the moves. By the time he was done detailing the encounter he called it, “probably one of the wildest nights of my entire life. Like, we went for it.”
By the next morning the producers were urging DeMario to quit the game and go home. Eventually, all of production was shut down. DeMario said it all happened so fast that even when he got home he had no idea what was really going on.
