"I chose not to, because I don't need to see it," he explained. "I know exactly what happened... there is not a detail that I don't know."
"I had the choice to see the tape that night and I decided not to. And subsequent days as things were happening and unraveling, again I had the option to watch the tape and decided not to," he continued, adding that he made the decision after asking himself if watching the tape would help him handle the situation any better. "The most important thing for me was I treated Corinne and DeMario equally, with respect, dignity... made sure they were equally taken care of. I never treated either one of them differently."
"From night one, when things could have gone differently that night, I made sure that that didn't happen. And all the way till tonight, I felt like they both were handled very equally," he said. "And that's what I wanted everyone to see tonight, is that they're not necessarily to blame, either one of them... DeMario and Corinne actually played a small part in this."
Because of the scandal, however, production implemented new rules like a two drink per hour maximum, and contestants giving producers verbal consent before becoming intimate with another castmember. Harrison implied those rules will continue into future seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
