DeMario Jackson Caught on Video in the Wake of 'Bachelor in Paradise' Scandal

We really didn't expect him to make a public appearance so soon after the Bachelor in Paradise scandal broke, but DeMario Jackson was spotted and captured on video in the LA area yesterday. Entertainment Tonight and TMZ both obtained footage of him, and he remained cool, collected, and pretty confident despite the cameras in his face.

In the TMZ video, DeMario at first seems to be doing his best to dodge questions being thrown at him, but as reporters persist, he does seem to indicate that he's not worried about how he's being portrayed in the media at the present time.

Sources also allegedly told TMZ that DeMario wants to obtain footage of his encounter with Corinne Olympios, and reportedly already has a lawyer requesting it from Warner Brothers. He also supposedly thinks that the tape will show that he did nothing wrong, and that Corinne was lucid during whatever went down in the pool.

But regardless of whatever happens in the investigation going forward, it sounds like DeMario does not have any ill will toward Corinne.

In this clip from ET, he had nothing but good things to say about her:

In case you didn't catch it, DeMario said:

"I have nothing to say. You know, Corinne's an awesome girl and that's all I have to say."

There is still so much speculation and confusion over what actually happened between these two. Yesterday, a report came out stating that a Bachelor in Paradise crew member witnessed the incident, and that person supposedly gave explicit (and, frankly, disgusting) details that allude to Corinne being "limp and unconscious" during the time in the pool. 

On the other end of the spectrum, Radar Online is reporting that a star from the show is claiming that the pool incident is being blown out of proportion, and that the cast is "disappointed" about the show being canceled.

And Corinne is reportedly insisting that she did not give consent, as she was too intoxicated to do so, and was in a "blackout" state at the time of the incident.

It will be interesting to see what the ultimate results of the investigation turn out to be -- though we're guessing it could be quite some time before the truth is revealed.
