"I'm glad footage of that day is being shown. I've always stuck to my truth and said, 'roll the tape,'" Jackson told ET. "This is a victory for all men who have been falsely accused." Corinne Olympios has never made accusations against Jackson, though he was the subject of a firestorm of comments online.
The newest Paradise promo
, which premiered during the finale of The Bachelorette
, opens with Olympios leading Jackson into the water for some "pool time." The two are fully clothed, but are shown getting close.
"This is 30 minutes into Paradise, Corinne and DeMario are already having a blast, hanging out with each other in the pool," contestant Alex Woytkiew says in the preview, before clips of producers start whisking Corinne and DeMario away from conversations.
"Corinne was getting pulled away, DeMario was getting pulled away, and I'm thinking, 'What did he just do?'" contestant Danielle Maltby explains. "Are Corinne and DeMario OK? All we know is that we aren't filming, so what the f**k is happening?"
Jackson also says that he doesn't hold grudges and tried to take the high road since the scandal broke, and would speak to Olympios if the opportunity presented itself.
A source close to production, meanwhile, tells ET that viewers can expect more footage of the first few days of filming when the show premieres next week, but it's unclear if the encounter itself will be aired.
Season four of Bachelor in Paradise premieres Monday, Aug. 14, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
ET caught up with Paradise
contestant Amanda Stanton last month, who opened up about the "intense" atmosphere
and new rules when filming resumed. See what she said in the video below.
