DeMario was kicked off of Rachel's season of The Bachelorette after one of his exes showed up and confessed that the two were dating when he went on the show. It was then announced he'd head to Mexico for BIP.

Not long after filming began, Olympios and Jackson allegedly drunkenly hooked up in the pool, and sources are saying Olympios was too drunk to consent. According to sources, Jackson and Olympios spoke with a BIP executive producer and were told that one of the show’s producers was “uncomfortable” with the footage.

"We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations," Warner Bros said in a statement. Olympios reportedly obtained an attorney, and is blaming BIP producers for not stepping in and preventing the sexual encounter considering the state she was in.
