AceShowbiz - While DeMario Jackson has turned down invitation to return to "Bachelor in Paradise" season 4 following suspension of the production, he's eager to appear on a reunion show. The reality star has confirmed that he will return for the "BIP" reunion episode as well as "The Bachelorette: Men Tell All" special.
Despite the sex scandal involving him and Corinne Olympios that portrayed him in a bad light, don't expect DeMario to talk bad about Corinne on the reunion show. Met by TMZ at Toast in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 8, he said that he held no grudge against her.
"It's not in me. That's not who I am as a person, like, I'm not one of those petty people," so he claimed. "I'm a very forgiving person. It's just not in me. I mean, you attract more bees with honey, and if she's willing to speak ... we can talk on camera, off-line, whether it's there or in the future, or 10 years from now. He added, "I would love to talk to her. I have nothing but love for her and her family, man, that's it."
DeMario also expressed his gratitude for the support that he received from his castmates during the investigation. "They've been very supportive of me throughout this whole entire thing and I want to all thank them, face to face, give them all hugs, bro-out, sis-out or whatever," the 30-year-old said. "They've been so helpful. I mean, I don't think you guys understand the support that I've had from castmates and producers. I want to just give them all a big ol' hug and tell them how much I love them."
Meanwhile, "BIP" will reportedly address the sex scandal in the upcoming fourth season. When the cast was back on the set, host Chris Harrison talked to them about the Corinne/DeMario sexual escapade in the pool and the result of the Warner Bros. investigation, production sources tell TMZ.
After recounting the scandal, Chris reportedly asked the cast if they were comfortable continuing to film the show and gave them a chance to leave. Everyone ended up deciding to stay and having fun like nothing had happened before.
