It's hard to tell whether this is a move by ABC to absolve themselves of any harm or if they're trying for a ratings blitz.

After it was decided there was no great harm done with the Bachelor in Paradise scandal and filming resumed, the network is planning on airing interviews with those involved: Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson.

Every summer, fans of The Bachelor franchise, otherwise known as Bachelor Nation, are treated to some fun in the sun as prior loveless contestants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette descend on a beach in Mexico for a second shot at love. The result is the spinoff Bachelor in Paradise.

But the beginning of this season wasn't fun for anyone. Production was halted after a complaint was lodged that there was possible sexual assault. Corinne and DeMario engaged in sexual contact with each other, and she was complaining that she couldn't remember, with others saying she was too drunk to give consent.

After an investigation, it was determined there was no wrongdoing, and it was explained that the person who had lodged the complaint to producers never actually saw what happened between Corinne and DeMario. Filming resumed without the two of them.

It would seem the best thing to do after resuming filming would be to just put that all behind them and forge ahead with the others who were there to legitimately find love, although it's questionable as to who is looking for a paycheck, who is looking for further fame, and who is really looking for love.

Chris Harrison has now announced that he plans to interview both Corinne and DeMario together to get their sides of the story of what happened while filming in Mexico. He insists that it's a confusing situation but that all will be explained when the conversation airs.

But is that really a good idea? If you take away the "entertainment" side of this, it's a woman accusing a man of sexually assaulting her when she was too drunk. And it's a man who is saying he didn't do anything wrong and that she was a willing participant. Is it really wise to bring these two together?

She's been insisting she had a boyfriend so would have never had sex with anyone else willingly, so why was she there?

It just seems that both Corinne and ABC are in it for the same reason—for fame or to exploit. If she had a boyfriend, she was only there for the money or fame. And apparently to drink a lot.

And ABC must be wanting to profit off it as well to still be wanting to take us down that path again.

But I'll admit that I'll watch it nonetheless. It's like a gapers' block where you just can't help but look.
