Corinne Olympios is responsible for her own actions while in paradise.
At least, that’s what the contract all Bachelor in Paradise contestants sign says — including the one about to enter a legal showdown with production.
There’s a lot of murky pool water in the alleged “sexual misconduct” that has the beloved reality show shut down, with Corinne claiming she was the “victim” in a drunken hookup that went too far — while other contestants say the fan fave knew what she was getting into.
Either way, there’s one group of people she definitely CAN’T blame for the incident: the producers!
According to the contract she signed, obtained by TMZ, all contestants waive their rights to sue producers over claims of “negligence, personal injury (including without limitation, any injuries arising out of the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease or unwelcome/unlawful contact or other interaction among participants).”
This means even if she was in a blackout state while engaged in sexual activity with DeMario Jackson, the producers would not be responsible.
However, past lawsuits involving similar contracts have shown that if producers were reckless — like Bachelor producers are accused of being in Corinne’s case — their actions would negate that clause.
Still, people who have seen the video have reportedly stated Corinne seemed lucid and engaged during the entire swimming pool fiasco.
Sounds like the contestant is about to tread some exhausting legal waters.
