‘I Don’t Believe She Was A Victim Or Traumatized’ — Bachelor In Paradise Star Jasmine Goode Says She Isn’t Buying Corinne’s Story!

The lines are being drawn in this ongoing Bachelor in Paradise controversy.

While some are backing Corinne Olympios‘ claim that she was too drunk to give consent during a sexual encounter with costar DeMario Jackson, some witnesses are calling B.S.

One woman who isn’t buying Corinne’s claim? Fellow contestant Jasmine Goode.

The Bachelor alum tells DailyMail.com she was surprised at the accusation of “sexual misconduct.” She says:

“I was taken back with Corinne’s statement that she’s the victim. That may be the role she plays on the show, but it’s a role. I don’t believe she was a victim or traumatized. The statement she released doesn’t even sound like her. It sounds like someone wrote it for her.”

What reason does Jasmine have to be suspicious? She says she saw plenty of Corinne and DeMario after the fact, and it was like nothing had even happened. She explains:

“Not once did she complain or say she was upset with what happened in the pool with DeMario. She was laughing, having a good time. Even the day after, she was hanging out with DeMario and some other people in the hot tub. I honestly thought they were going to become a couple.”

Something to keep in mind is that Corinne claims she doesn’t have much memory of what happened that night. Also, someone being nice to someone doesn’t mean something wrong happened — they just might not have processed it or could still be in denial.

Jasmine continues:

“She never, ever said one thing negative about DeMario. And she was never in danger, at least I never witnessed anything bad happening to her.”

But was she an eyewitness at the incident itself?? Actually, she was. At least for a moment. She says:

“As a woman, I would have been the first person to step in if I thought she was being taken advantage of in the pool with DeMario. She even said hi to me when I walked by them.”

So Jasmine was the one who walked by them? We’ve actually heard about a castmate walking by and getting a hi from Corinne in two separate accounts. Hmm…

Finally, Jasmine defends not only DeMario but the entire franchise, saying:

“I feel bad for DeMario. He’s a good guy. He’s sweet and not aggressive one bit. I am sad and disappointed this has happened. We are all shocked. The producers and crew members are like family. I feel bad for them as well, this was their job. They would not do anything to hurt us. Remember I have been on both shows, and I have always felt safe in the environment. I went there to find love, I honestly did, and I have seen great things happen on the show.”

Obviously we can’t be certain until the video comes out, but until then we’re taking a serious look at every angle of this thing.

Because if there really was a crime committed, this really could be an indictment of the entire show!
