Can you imagine if former Bachelor Nick Viall and his third runner-up Corinne Olympios started dating again? Well, the blonde beauty recently revealed she wouldn’t rule out a reconciliation with her ex.
“If I saw him getting back to the way he was when I first stepped out of the limo, I would seriously consider giving him a chance,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I would meet up with him, have coffee, talk to him and see how he is. He just broke up with his fiancée; it can’t be easy.”

Things didn’t exactly end well between the duo. “We clearly had strong chemistry, I was falling so hard and I remember when he changed completely,” she shared. “I went up to him, cameras not rolling, and was like, ‘I just want to give you a hug before the night ends,’ which is something we normally did. He was like, ‘K, well, I’m gonna go give out this rose now.’ I was like, ‘Whoa.’ It was a slap in the face, like, ‘I’m too busy for you right now.’”
She continued, “I don’t know why he got like that… I feel like [in the beginning] I saw a different side of him than what [he] shows right now.”
Corinne’s comments come just a few days after she stepped out with Bachelor in Paradise hookup DeMario Jackson at the 2017 Maxim Halloween party. The duo posed for playful pics but insisted they’re just friends after a sexual encounter between the pair shut down production on BiP 4 after misconduct allegations surfaced. An internal investigation later revealed that nothing illegal had taken place, and filming resumed.
Apart from her role in the controversy, various reports alleged that Corinne had a boyfriend the whole time she was in Mexico. She stepped out with Jordan Gielchinsky over Father’s Day weekend for lunch amid the scandal. Another ex claimed she was engaged during her time on The Bachelor.
Keith Berman wrote on his blog at the time, “Your bachelor stint was a complete sham and now the whole town knows it! You HAD A FIANCÉ THE ENTIRE SHOW! You FAKED THE WHOLE THING. I’ll spare the Internet the details because there’s no need for another kid to get dragged through the mud and bothered by the press as well but trust me I know exactly who her ‘Mystery man/real ex-boyfriend/fiancé’ is!”
In all honesty, we could see her and Nick making it work. But we wouldn’t put it past them to reunite just for a spin-off!
