Bachelor in Paradise Premiere Recap: A Lesson in Consent, With Some Messy Mixed Messages
On the one hand, most people watch Paradise for frivolous beachy fun. On the other hand, everyone watched the premiere for the scandal at hand.

After two summers ~in~ Paradise (experiencing all the highs, lows, dates, roses, and shoreline cryfests that come with the show), Bachelor vet Ashley Iaconetti sat this summer’s season out. But that doesn’t mean she won’t be watching along, and offering her ‘been there, done that’ insight! Here, she recaps the fourth, oft-controversial, BiP season for Cosmopolitan.com.
It’s fair to say that most people were ‘eagerly’ watching this week’s two-part premiere to see the Corinne/DeMario situation play out. And… we did, sort of? Much has been reported on the incident, and the footage aired served to confirm most of the gnarly details, though on a less-sensationalized scale. The pair’s chemistry was immediately apparent, if emboldened by alcohol; inasmuch as it’s possible to discern so from a TV show, both seemed comfortable to explore that attraction, consensually, from the bar to the pool to the hot tub — and I have to say that I found the very public nature of this hook-up awkward. Alex was standing right there in front of the pool giving an interview! (Side note: Even though we’re all guilty of making fun of Alex’s height, I thought it was really sad how much it was harped on during last night’s episode. Dude can’t help it!!)
That said, the specific footage of the alleged sexual contact between Corinne and DeMario, which reportedly drove two producers to quit the show (and precipitated the production shutdown), was not shown. This of course means there’s still some ambiguity regarding the he said, she said, network said back-and-forth that’s followed. And given that the tapes will likely remain locked away in an ABC vault somewhere for good, it’s unlikely we’ll have a definitive take on what happened — or even if there is a definitive take. Remember: this doesn’t mean we should take either Corinne or DeMario’s accounts any less seriously. They were there, and we weren’t.
