Is Corinne Olympios dating DeMario Jackson? That's what Bachelor Nation is wondering after the former Bachelor in Paradise stars stepped out together at the 2017 Maxim Halloween party in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 21 — and even though they didn't dress up in a couples costume, they still looked pretty cozy together.
DeMario, 30, posed for a handful of red carpet pics with Corinne, 26, at the event. Corinne — who was first introduced to Bachelor Nation as a villain on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor — dressed up as a sexy robot while DeMario — who got kicked off of Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette for allegedly having a girlfriend back home — dressed up as a biker.
Before heading out to the party, they both shared the same photo of themselves on Instagram. Corinne wrote, "Fembot - Biker Boy take Halloween" in her caption, while DeMario captioned his post, "This fembot captured me tonight!" and added a rose emoji.
It would seem like a harmless, fun night out if the pair weren't involved in one of the most shocking scandals in Bachelor history. Back in June, production on Season 4 of the franchise spin-off Bachelor in Paradise was shut down after DeMario and Corinne were allegedly involved in sexual misconduct on the set. Witnesses feared that Corinne may have been too drunk to consent to a sexual interaction with DeMario, but his name was cleared after an investigation was completed and filming resumed.
But even though it seems like they put all that behind them and are now romantically involved, Corinne said that they are just really good friends.“It’s really good that we could just be friends and have no worries about any drama or anything like that," she revealed to Us Weekly.
“We’re extremely close. We talk, like, every day. We hang out. We do things that friends do,” DeMario told Us Weekly at the event. But he did say that Corinne is “the most drop dead gorgeous girl in the world" and when asked if they've hooked up since the show ended, he teased, “I don’t kiss and tell.”
