With Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor airing on Monday, August 31, season 10 contestant Corinne Olympios has some thoughts on rewatching her time on the hit reality series. “I honestly, like, have blocked most of it out of my mind,” the Miami native, 28, exclusively tells Life & Style. “I’m just super excited. I think it’s going to be really great and I’m going to watch it with my boyfriend and his family … so [it] should be interesting!”
Corinne and her beau, Vincent Fratantoni, have been dating for nearly a year and thankfully, he’s already familiar with her experience on The Bachelor. “He actually watched the show and I didn’t even know that but he had seen the show before and did know who I was,” Corinne explains. “It’s a good thing — and so did his parents. But we’re having a watch party so I can only just hope it goes well!”
Admittedly, the blonde beauty, whose collection with HoneyBead Bracelets x Lindsay Montgomery drops on Wednesday, September 2, does have some reservations. “The only nerves I have are just me watching it with him there so it’s kind of just, like, ‘Oh God, I used to be a different person type of thing,’” says Corinne.
Of course, she’s grown a lot since then and ultimately, has “no regrets” from her time on the show. “It is what it is and everything happened the way it was supposed to happen,” Corinne assures. “It was a really fun time in my life.”
Even though Nick eliminated Corinne in episode 9, there’s no bad blood between them. “I did Nick’s podcast so I’ve spoken to him recently. It’s just nice that there’s no drama there,” the Bachelor in Paradise alum notes. “Him and I are on good terms and I wish him the best and he wishes me the best and it’s just really nice that we can just turn that page.”
The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! airs on ABC Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET.
