While Bachelor Nation may have moved on from the Bachelor in Paradise shutdown scandal, the show hasn’t — and on Monday’s episode Chris Harrison will sit down with Corinne and DeMario, the two contestants at the center of the whole sordid mess. As you’ll recall, they both did separate interviews with Harrison on Paradise, but this was their first time seeing each other since production shut down. (Clearly, the joint interview was taped before the duo’s PDA-filled outing on August 30.)
“What do you have to say to each other?” Harrison asks the duo, who seem nervous but otherwise comfortable with the reunion. “I’m just happy that you’er doing well,” DeMario tells Corinne, and she adds that things would have been “a lot easier” if they had been allowed to communicate during the shutdown and subsequent investigation.
So what say you, rose lovers? Is it time to put this Paradise drama to bed for good?
Bachelor in Paradise airs Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
