Corinne on her “Bachelor” journey: “I acted like a psychopath”
Bachelor fans first met Olympios in 2017 when she was one of 30 contestants vying for Nick Viall’s heart.
The Florida native’s bold personality made her a polarizing figure on the show. Some fans loved her while others called her the villain of the season.
Olympios sat down with Viall as part of him in 2020 Patreon Nick V Talks Trash TV: A Bachelor and His Exes Tell All series.
Reminiscing about Olympios’ time on the show, the two recalled the time she tried to seduce him with whipped cream and the drama that surrounded them having a nanny growing up.
In her conversation with Viall, Olympios reflected on the tactics she used to win the Bachelor’s heart.
“I was acting like a psychopath,” she told Viall. “I was a completely different person back then. I’ve tried to do everything I can to get your attention. Everyone freaked out, but I don’t care because I got my period.”
The 31-year-old also expressed disappointment that some of her more heartfelt moments didn’t make it onto the show.
“I was a little upset because I know what a good wife I will be one day and what a good friend I am,” she said. “So I felt like that side of me wasn’t being shown. I felt like I looked like a chick.”
Corinne calls Ellen DeGeneres ‘cold’
While Viall’s season of The Bachelor aired, Olympios appeared as a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. On the show, DeGeneres questioned Olympios about her actions on The Bachelor and inquired about her nanny, which was a major talking point on Viall’s season.
According to Life & Style magazineOlympios spoke about the interview during a 2018 interview on pop culture podcast The Morning Toast.
The former “Bachelor” contestant revealed DeGeneres made her uncomfortable and called the talk show host “cold” on the day.
“I love Ellen so much I thought I’d talk to Dory and I was really excited and unfortunately she made me feel so uncomfortable,” she revealed.
“But I still love her,” she added.
