Corinne Olympios just did something no Bachelor star has been able to pull off yet. She turned her hometown date into her own reality TV offer.
Even though fans are already calling for the freshly eliminated Olympios to head to Bachelor in Paradise this summer, she’s been coy about it. And in one interview, she finally couldn’t hold back any longer and revealed the real reason she’s not going to be hitting up Bachelor Reject Beach in Mexico.
“I think America is interested in me having a reality TV show with my family. My family is awesome, as you all could tell on my hometown date. America totally wants it, I hear it all the time,” she told E! News following the “Women Tell All” special episode taping for the current season of The Bachelor. “There is a lot of talk about, I’m going to say a lot of networks are interested. Obviously, my loyalty is here with ABC and things like that. So there’s still a lot of stuff to be worked out, but we’ll see what comes in the future.”
God help us, we would absolutely watch a reality show featuring the Olympios family — and their multimillion-dollar mystery business, their nanny for adult kids, their marinated olives and their cheese pasta.
After seeing the hilarity that was Olympios’ hometown date, most of which she spent dropping thousands of dollars on clothes while a bemused Nick Viall looked on, we’re pretty sure this is a show that reality TV needs. And after the last Bachelor spinoff featuring Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell was a total snoozefest, we need some Olympios’ antics to liven up our screens in between actual seasons of Bachelor franchise shows.
Do it, Corinne! Make reality TV Corinne again!
