Bachelor nation is buzzing about the possible coupling of Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson. The “Bachelor in Paradise” co-stars, who caused quite a stir with their sexual activity on set, and even shut down production, may not be dating.
According to Life & Style magazine, Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson hit the town together for the 2017 Maxim Halloween party. Although the two didn’t dress in a couple’s costume, they seemingly did cozy up together to have fun at the party.
Corinne Olympios, who appeared on Nick Viall’s season of “The Bachelor,” and DeMario Jackson, who was given the boot during Rachel Lindsay’s season of “The Bachelorette,” met during “Bachelor in Paradise,” where they got drunk and began hooking up in the swimming pool. However, claims that Corinne may have been too drunk to consent to sexual contact shut down production for over a week, and led to Corinne and DeMario not returning to the show. Later, they both spoke out about the experience, and met face to face on a live after show.
The two smoothed things over, and have seemingly been on very good terms ever since. While Corinne and DeMario are speaking out about their romantic relationship, Jackson did say that the pair are very close, and speak nearly every day, calling Olympios the “most gorgeous girl in the world.”
“We’re extremely close. We talk, like, every day. We hang out. We do things that friends do,” DeMario told Us Weekly at the event. But he did say that Corinne is “the most drop dead gorgeous girl in the world.” When asked if he and Corinne have been hooking up, he replied, “I don’t kiss and tell.”
