Chris Harrison Says There Was No 'Victim' in the 'Bachelor in Paradise' Scandal

Chris Harrison is opening up about the Bachelor in Paradise scandal now that the show’s season has begun.

During the show’s premiere, the reality show host chatted with the BiP cast, who came to DeMario Jackson‘s defense after Corinne Olympios claimed to be a victim of assault.

“I think people have to be very careful in using the word ‘victim’ because there was not a victim. There was not an assault. There was not a crime. There was not anything other than what turned out to be just an unfortunate event that they got caught up in,” Chris told People.

He added, “I think they were quick to defend DeMario because they knew Corinne wasn’t a victim. They knew she wasn’t hurt and injured in any of this. The person that was really being attacked was more of DeMario. I guess, maybe it came off as victim blaming, but that’s probably why they felt a little sensitive for DeMario.”

“I think they felt that he was being unjustly accused of something. I think they felt that they needed to come to his defense more than they needed to come to Corinne‘s defense. It’s not like they blamed Corinne or shamed her. I guess it could’ve been misconstrued in that way. But when I was sitting there in person, that’s how I took it. I didn’t take it as they were bashing Corinne at all. And they defended her,” Chris concluded.

'Bachelor in Paradise' to Air Live Season Finale This Year!

Bachelor in Paradise will be making history this season… for the first time the show will air a live finale that is not only a reunion special.

Chris Harrison, the longtime Bachelor Nation host, is dishing on what we can expect in the finale.

“It’s going to be a lot of finding out what’s been happening because things have been continuing back in the real world since the show wrapped up in Mexico,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s going to be interesting and I think a lot more fun for all of us. It’s going to have a live studio audience.”

“The live [finale] at the end will be more like After the Final Rose where we’re live, the show is wrapping up, and there will be people involved that were on the show because we have to find out where everybody is. I don’t think you can put those into usual Bachelor boxes because they’re going to be so different,” Chris concluded.

Chris will also be welcoming back Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson to the during the season to talk about what happened at the beginning of filming, but that won’t be filmed with 30 people on set like the Women or Men Tell All specials. “I think people are misunderstanding how that’s going to go. Those are going to be a lot more in-depth and a lot more intimate and a lot more personal and one-on-one than your ‘tell all special,’” he said.

Chris Harrison on 'Bachelor in Paradise' After Scandal: 'You're Not Going to Notice Major Changes'

Not much is going to be different on Bachelor in Paradise after the major scandal where Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson‘s hookup led to a sexual assault investigation and a production shut down.

“When this plays out and you see it all happening, you’ll understand what I’m saying,” host Chris Harrison told THR of the show, which will debut on August 14. “I think publicly everyone is going to want us to come out and say, ‘We’ve changed everything!’ and that it will be earth-shattering. We’ve really learned from our mistakes, but there really weren’t any major mistakes made.”

“Yes, we’ve made some changes, but if you talk to the cast, they’ve always been the most important thing to us – taking care of them and their safety,” Chris continued. “And as far as alcohol goes, that’s never been a big thing for us. That’s a big misconception of the show – that we push it, and that we need it and we want it. But that really doesn’t help us. Someone being sloppy drunk and being out of it does not give us good television… On the contrary, we want people to be of their right mind and give us a better story to show. So while we’re going to talk about rules and talk about certain things and have a dialogue, you’re not going to notice major changes.”
