The INSIDER Summary:
- Corinne Olympios was considered a “Bachelor” villain.
- She revealed she’s going on the spinoff series “Bachelor in Paradise.”
- We can’t wait.
Fans (and haters) of Corinne Olympios, rejoice: Everyone’s favorite pint-sized villain on “The Bachelor” is coming back to TV.
Entertainment Tonight exclusively learned the Miami-based owner of a “million dollar business” is coming to ABC’s spinoff series “Bachelor in Paradise.” She’ll be joined by returning cast member Amanda Stanton and “Bachelorette” star Joelle Fletcher’s runner-up Robby Hayes.
For those who don’t know, “Bachelor in Paradise” is the show that airs when “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” are in the off-season. Now in its third season, “Bachelor in Paradise” gathers 16 beautiful singles who have appeared on past seasons of its sister shows, but who were ultimately dumped.
Basically, it gives these former “Bachelor” cast members the opportunity to come back on the show to “find love” — not to mention stretch their 15 minutes of fame. Plus, it’s set on a beautiful Mexican resort where there are ample opportunities to watch the cast drink, tan, and make out.
Olympios was an immediate front runner for the spinoff series from the start, even though she played coy about the possibility for quite awhile. Not only was she the only reason to watch Nick Viall’s season of “The Bachelor,” but her quotes and behavior were endlessly entertaining and perfect fodder for reality TV show competitions.
I mean, take a look back at some of her finest moments:
On being on a group date: “I don’t want to be on this group date. I want to be in a spa, being fed a nice taco. Preferably… chicken.”
On maturity: [As she grabs her breasts] “Do you call this immature?”
On why she’s on “The Bachelor”: “I’m here for Nick, Nick, Nick, Nick. Nickelodeon.”
On being the best: “Make America Corinne again!”
Sure, her mom claimed she was faking it for the cameras, but we tend to hope she’s just that unfiltered.
Here’s hoping you find love, Corinne! And someone to introduce to your nanny.
