Corinne Olympios’ 15 minutes of fame are still going strong!
During a radio interview on Hits 1 in Hollywood on Sirius XM on Tuesday, the “Bachelor” favourite revealed that we haven’t seen the last of her on reality TV. In fact, she’ll be appearing on an upcoming episode of “The Bachelorette”.
“I filmed an episode with her and I met some of the guys she’s dating. [They’re] cute, yes,” Olympios said of new Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay and her suitors. “We’re off to a good start.”
The 24-year-old Miami native made waves with some of the women on her season of “The Bachelor”, but seemed to always have a good relationship with Lindsay — and says she hopes America will rally behind the first black lead in the franchise’s history.
“God, I hope [the show will get good ratings],” Olympios shared. “It would be such a shame if people didn’t watch because of her race.”
“Of course [Lindsay is] nervous. It’s only natural that she’d be nervous — I would be nervous,” she added. “But she’s just so endearing and bubbly and inviting that I don’t think people will pay attention to it.”
While Olympios couldn’t find Lindsay more endearing, she doesn’t have the same feelings for her ex, Nick Viall, and his new fiancee, Vanessa Grimaldi.
“They’re so phony with each other,” she said. “It sucks, because they’re both really real people separately, but whenever they were together looking at them… I mean I lived with Vanessa and dated Nick, that’s not how either one of them really are. So I’m like, ‘What are you guys doing?'”
While Olympios might not be buying it, Viall made quite the gesture on Monday’s “Dancing With the Stars”, giving Grimaldi a steamy smooch during his performance.
“I think she did fantastic,” the former Bachelor gushed to ET after the show. “Actually, we rehearsed it a couple of times and we were trying to time the dip and it was easily our best dip.”
