Famous for: TV Star
Corinne Olympios grew up in Miami, Florida. Her father is James Olympios and her mother is Peri Miriam and she has a younger sister. Corinne attended Florida International University.
Her father owns the multi-million dollar business, ArmorGarage Inc., which provides high performance premium grade epoxy coatings and floor products. Clients include the US Military, multiple Fortune 500 companies, and the US Coast Guard.
In 2017 she competed for the heart of Nick Viall on the popular ABC reality show Bachelor in Paradise. The show had to shutdown temporarily in June 2017 when Olympios made sexual misconduct allegations against castmember DeMario Jackson. The investigation suspended filming for two weeks and eventually the producers, Warner Bros. Television, found no misconduct and resumed filming without Olympios and DeMario.
Warner Bros released a statement following the completion of its internal investigation into the alleged sexual assault stating ‘Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident. We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy.’ Olympios’ lawyer Marty Singer shot back at the production company almost immediately in his own statement, pointing out that it was a producer, not Olympios, that had alerted the company to the assault. The show premiered in the US in August 2017.
DerMario Jackson received a lot backlash from social media and press from the assault charges. During a visit to ABC’s Good Morning America Olympios stated she didn’t remember anything from the encounter due to a combination of drinking and her medicine.
It was revealed after the shutdown that Olympios had been in a relationship with Jordan Gielchinsky, president of Giel York Tobacco Corporation. On August she told reporters that the relationship had ended.
Corinne Olympios is planning to re-appear on TV in another show which is yet to be revealed.
