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 [...] 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.”.....»»
