The Bachelor in Paradise scandal that rocked the franchise isn't going to keep DeMario Jackson from appearing on the show... at least for one upcoming episode.
DeMario says he plans to attend the Men Tell All reunion special, which airs after The Bachelorette finale, according to an interview with TMZ. This will be Jackson's first on-air appearance with the franchise since a scandal involving him on the Bachelor in Paradise set got the show temporarily suspended.
Elite Daily reached out to ABC for confirmation but did not hear back by the time of publication.
And the Men Tell All special isn't the only reunion DeMario will be attending. He told TMZ he's also planning to attend the Bachelor in Paradise reunion special at the end of this season, saying he owes it to his castmates who have supported him through the public blowup.
For me, I owe it to my castmates. They've been very supportive of me throughout this whole entire thing and I want to all thank them, personally, face to face, give them all hugs, bro-out, sis-out or whatever.
But don't expect him to instigate anything with Corinne Olympios, the other contestant involved in the show-suspending drama. DeMario says he won't start an argument with her on camera at the reunion show. Check out his full statement below.
Last month, DeMario Jackson found himself at the center of a murky situation that led to the new season of Bachelor in Paradise suspending production. After a couple weeks filled with speculation that the season (and possibly even the series) would be canceled, Warner Bros. announced Bachelor in Paradise would resume filming.
Conflicting reports have suggested DeMario's return, but since he's emphasizing his participation in the BIP reunion show in this new clip, it kinda seems like that'll be the only episode of the season he's going to appear on.
I guess we'll just have to wait for Men Tell All to hear DeMario's story... and then the BIP reunion to see how DeMario and Corinne act together (assuming Corinne appears for that, too).
