Corinne Olympios first graced the small screen in reality show “The Bachelor,” wherein she competed for the affection of Nick Viall. Her controversial statements and no-holds-barred conversation skills have gained her quite a following, and the pressure is now on to join the upcoming season of “Bachelor In Paradise.”

The 24-year-old business woman did not have the cleanest run on “The Bachelor” as she was part of several fights within the mansion. Moreover, several of her competitors questioned why Nick continued to give her a rose. In the end, she placed fourth and the final rose was given to 29-year-old Vanessa Grimaldi.

Love her or hate her, there is a relatively strong call for Corinne to join the upcoming season of “Bachelor In Paradise,” of which co-season star Raven Gates has already confirmed her participation. Her straight-to-the-point ways are likely to cause trouble with the rest of the cast. During the early days post-Nick, Corinne had expressed her uncertainty in joining the spinoff. It seems, however, that she may have since changed her mind.

“I’m still not sure yet,” she told E! News in an interview. “Most likely, yes. So not 100 percent locked in yet.” So while Corinne is still uncertain that she will be joining Raven in “Paradise” later this year, the possibility is definitely there.

But as the publication noted, there might one thing in particular that is holding her back. Corinne has already met a man, whose identity she is keeping to herself at the moment. “I’ve been seeing him for a little bit,” she said. “I’m not ready to come out to the world about him yet. It’s still in the early stages.”

She then went on to clarify that she is not certain about what will happen between them just yet, but that they are “vibing really nicely.” Corinne also said that things are going well between the two of them and that she “[wants] it to stay that way.” The man, whom Corinne has known for quite a while, lives in Los Angeles.

The official casting of “Bachelor In Paradise” has not yet been confirmed. However, US network ABC has already confirmed that the new season will premiere on Aug. 8 in the United States, so the list is expected to fill up quite quickly. Full episodes and highlights can be watched on the network’s website.
