As soon as she was kicked off of The Bachelor, rumors were running rampant that Corinne Olympios was engaged to someone else. Now, one year later, she’s finally confirming that those weren’t just rumors — a former bodyguard proposed to her as soon as she left the reality show!

“I got home, and he showed up at my house with a ring,” she explained on The Morning Breath show on Nov. 14. Though it didn’t last long, she was totally serious about it and made some major sacrifices. “I removed two tattoos that I had, because I was engaged to a very religious guy,” she explained. “He was like, ‘I can’t marry you if you have tattoos.’ [So I] got them removed. Then we broke off the engagement.”

So, what happened to the ring he gave her? “I gave it back. I could never keep something like that,” she insisted. “It was exactly a year ago. Literally yesterday [last year], I got engaged.” The relationship must have been very short, because Corinne joined the cast of Bachelor In Paradise just months after saying goodbye to Nick Viall, and she was dating Jordan Gielchinsky though all of the controversy.

Now, Corinne claims to be dating “someone new,” and doesn’t plan to date another Bachelor Nation alum. Perhaps that’s why she doesn’t have any plans to appear on Bachelor Winter Games “as of right now.” “I think everything happens for a reason… I love my Bachelor family so much,” she explained. “I just feel like because that happened, I think there’s going to be something bigger and better in the works for me, and even with them.”
