Corinne Olympios dished who was the “most villainous” during her time on House of Villains’ debut season. During her exclusive video interview with HollywoodLife, the former Bachelor personality, 31, pointed to two co-stars: Vanderpump Rules alum Jax Taylor and The Apprentice’s Omarosa Manigault Newman.
“I think Jax and Omarosa are the two people I really didn’t connect with at all, and I feel like they were the most villainous,” Corinne said, before adding, “No [they’re not good people.]”
While reflecting on her own time on the show, the reality TV star admitted that her perspective changed on what being a villain meant to her. Bachelor Nation fans recall that she was dubbed the villain in season 21 of The Bachelor.
“At first I kind of was like, ‘I’m not really a villain.’ But then I kind of leaned into it and was like, ‘Being a villain is hot,” Corinne said. “I’m a f**king villain.’”
During the October 12 episode of the famous E! series, viewers watched Corinne and Omarosa’s awkward meet-and-greet unfold. Corinne confessed that she didn’t know Omarosa’s name at first, to which Omarosa, 49, said that Google could “help” her with that. Omarosa then shut down in front of Corinne every time the reality TV star tried to talk to her. As a result, Corinne was seen walking away crying. However, the ABC alum had one final note to get across to Omarosa.
“You know what I call that? I call that trying way too f**king hard,” Corinne said. “So, have a great f**king day, bitch.” After that, Omarosa pointed to Corinne to be evicted from the show.
As for Jax, 44, the former Bravo personality called Corinne “annoying” during an October 13 episode of his podcast, “When Reality Hits.”
“She cried the whole time,” he alleged. “She kept going on the whole time. She was like, ‘Why don’t you like me Jax?’ I never saw [what she told other contestants about me], but even at the premiere party, she was like, ‘Do you like me? Do you like me?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t not like you, but I don’t like you. I don’t know you.’”
Aside from her current stint on House of Villains, Corinne also told HollywoodLife that she has a packed work schedule in the near future.
“There’s a lot coming up — not a lot I can talk about right now — but there are a lot of projects in the works and things that I’m really excited about, but definitely keep your eyes out because stuff is coming,” she added.
When she isn’t booked and busy with reality TV and on-screen gigs, Corinne has also embraced some down time to get back into the dating pool. Though her current love life is “complicated,” the Miami native affirmed that she is happy.
