Host of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise Chris Harrison released a statement on Good Morning America regarding their decision to suspend filming of BIP.
Details are still emerging but what we do know is that there was some sort of sexual encounter between Corinne Olympios and Demario Johnson while they were heavily intoxicated.
A producer believes Corinne was unable to consent, and that BIP therefore FILMED a sexual assault 😲
Here’s what Chris had to say:
“The safety and care of the cast and crew of our show is of the utmost importance to us. It is with this thought in mind that we made the decision to suspend filming. Out of respect to all involved, there’s only so much I can and will say at this time…
I know in this day and age we want and even expect immediate answers but in this case it’s just not possible… I will keep you as informed and up to date as I possibly can. We’re sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this may have caused the cast, the crew and our loyal fans. It is my sincere hope that we can come to a quick resolution on this and get back to work very soon.”
Thoughts on what we know so far?
Congratulations to Rachel Lindsay!
She will be next season’s The Bachelorette!!!!!!!!
I’m so excited about it, not only because it is the franchise’s first African American Lead (welcome to 2017!) but because she is gorgeous, extremely likable and WHIP SMART!
The girl is a LAWYER! Can’t wait to see her season!
It was announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night….unfortunately BEFORE she was even eliminated– #SPOILERALERT!
Either way, SUPER happy about it 😀
Ben Higgins wants you to know he is NOT a Bachelor again!
Rumors have been going around that Lauren Bushnell and Ben BROKE UP!
He went to Instagram to clear it up!
“No need to respond often to rumors or “fake news” but the feeling I have in this picture is the same feeling I have for this girl today. “
Still going strong 🙂
Not many couples from The Bachelor survive…I hope they do!
