There's no doubt the recent Bachelor in Paradise incident that centered around Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson has been quite the whirlwind, but there is one person in Olympios' life who has seemingly stayed constant and still has her back. Olympios' boyfriend, Jordan Gielchinsky, chatted with E! News Wednesday about the Bachelor in Paradise situation, including how supportive he is of his girlfriend. All that said, Bachelor Nation just might be wondering who exactly is Gielchinsky, so let's investigate.
First and foremost, these two have history. As Gielchinsky told E! News, "I have known Corinne for over 10 years and as a friend or boyfriend, she will continue to receive my unwavering loyalty and support until I decide that there is a legitimate reason not to give it." So, they've known each other for over a decade, which is an extremely long time. It's unclear how they met, but seeing how the former Bachelor star is 24, it's probably a safe bet to say the couple met as teenagers and possibly in high school.
An exact timeline of when their relationship was initiated isn't known right now, but HollywoodLife.com reports that they, obviously, started dating before Olympios went to Mexico for BiP. To make that even clearer, the date on the Instagram below is May 14, 2017, which shows that they were at least hanging out before filming began.
According to what appears to be Gielchinsky's Facebook profile, he lives in Miami, Florida, which is also Olympios' hometown. Based on a sparse LinkedIn page for a "Jordan Gielchinsky" from Miami that doesn't have a profile picture, it seems like he has been the president for the Giel York Tobacco Corporation for the past four years, in addition to the being the president for the Homeland Tobacco Company for the past three years. If this is the correct Gielchinsky, it also appears he also does work for Hmbldt, a company that makes vaporizer pens for medical marijuana. He also seems to have attended Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey-New Brunswick.
There isn't much else known about Gielchinsky. He seems to be a pretty private person, especially when it comes to social media. Besides old photos from years ago featured on his Facebook, his Instagram is private. He also isn't seen on Olympios' Instagram, save for the above photo.
On Tuesday, Warner Brothers announced that its BiP investigation had concluded without finding any misconduct and that filming was resuming. The following statement was given to Bustle:
As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We take all such allegations seriously. The safety, security and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly. Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. 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. Production on this season of Bachelor in Paradise will be resuming, and we plan to implement certain changes to the show’s policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants
Olympios' lawyer, Singer, gave his own statement to Bustle later Tuesday:
“It needs to be made crystal clear that production of Bachelor in Paradise was shut down because of multiple complaints received from BIP producers and crew members on the set. It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone. It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrong doing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.”
As for Jackson, he also hired a lawyer and said during an interview with E! News on Wednesday, June 14:
"It's unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations. I will be taking swift and appropriate legal action until my name is cleared and, per the advice of legal counsel, will be seeking all available remedies entitled to me under the laws."
