Allegations of nonconsensual sex on set of reality TV show

I don't watch this sort of stuff myself, but the report of what transpired interested me so I thought I would pass it along and see what others think about this:

Bachelor in Paradise Crew Member Provides Horrifying Account of Alleged Sexual Assault

I know there's a limit to how much you can quote here, but you should probably just read the whole thing. It isn't very long.

Portions that stick out to me:

Several media outlets have reported that BIP contestant DeMario Jackson allegedly had a nonconsensual sexual encounter with contestant Corinne Olympios in a hot tub during filming. Sources connected to Jackson told TMZ that Jackson had oral sex with Olympios, that he was too drunk to have penetrative sex, and that “the next day everything was fine.” Sources close to Olympios told TMZ that Olympios said she does not remember and did not consent to the sexual encounter. Warner Bros. is investigating the incident and won’t comment on specifics for now.

The BIP crew member told the Daily Mail that the incident occurred after producers suggested Jackson and Olympios hook up. “Corinne and Demario found out when they arrived in Mexico that the story line would involve the two of them hooking up so they decided to hang out and get better acquainted over drinks,” the source said. “Soon they decided to go swimming and when they climbed into the Jacuzzi, they were both loaded. Corinne proceeded to remove her bathing suit and things got increasingly sexual.”
Somewhere in the midst of this encounter she went limp and unresponsive, but he kept going and they kept filming, but at some point crew members stopped it and carried her away.
Another story from the NY Post:


Olympios has reportedly hired an attorney and is said to be blaming producers for allowing the sexual encounter with Jackson to progress despite her apparent inebration. Both parties were said to have been drinking throughout the day of shooting, though Olympios claims she was in a blackout state and was unable to consent.
So, yeah. They were both very drunk, but she was so drunk that she can't even remember what happened. This happened after the shows producers supplied them with alcohol throughout the day and "suggested that they hook up". It seems like someone should have intervened much earlier if she was so drunk.
