Nobody puts Corinne Olympios in the corner… unless you want to see her come completely undone.
After being one of the season’s most talked about frontrunners, Corinne finally felt what it was like to not be at the top of Nick Viall’s lady list.
When the “business owner” was passed over for the only date rose in this week’s episode, and after Nick surprisingly sent Danielle M. home (sending Corinne into an emotional tailspin), the 24-year-old became a bag of nerves, desperate for Nick’s attention.
This combination of Nick’s unpredictable (Corinne’s word of the night) behavior and Corinne’s desire for his affection led the Miami native to go where no Bachelor season 21 contestant had gone before…Nick’s bedroom!
“I’m going to remind him of the spark that we had and turn the spark into a fire — I’m going to blow that room up,” Corinne explained to the cameras as she made her way to “surprise” Nick in his hotel room, in hopes of “solidifying” a hometown date. “I do it better than anyone else… my heart is gold but my vagine is platinum.” #QuoteOfTheSeason
But to her dismay, things did not go the way she planned as “unpredictable Nick” struck again when he denied her sexual advances.
“I don’t think this is a good idea,” Nick could be heard saying behind his closed bedroom door. “Very tempting but I’ve learned that you’re always supposed to wait in these instances.”
“This is so terrible,” Corinne later responded in her interview. “Tonight definitely did not go as I wanted it to. I tried to do something nice and very cute for Nick and it backfired. Everything went wrong. Now I’m really sad, and self-consciousness. And nervous about me and Nick and our connection.”
While Corinne was trying (keyword, “trying”) to settle her nerves at the ladies’ villa, Nick unexpectedly showed up for a visit and asked to speak to Kristina.
“I feel like it’s down to me or Kristina,” Corinne frantically told Rachel before adding, “that’s why I’m freaking out right now. I need to know what’s going on. If she’s staying then I know it’s going to be me going home. You know that. You know that. You know that.”
While Corinne was coming apart at the seams, Nick was tearfully, and I mean tearfully, saying goodbye to Kristina in an unconventional face-to-face, pre-rose ceremony sit down.
And with the bachelor’s “unpredictability” running rampant, the four remaining girls (Corinne, Vanessa, Raven and Rachel) were left in limbo, once Kristina said her goodbyes, not knowing whether to prepare for a rose ceremony or pack their bags for Nick’s home visits.
Until next week!
