Taylor's Fault? 'The Bachelor' Star Nick Viall Spills Details Of Corinne's Upcoming Bayou Battle!
On this season of The Bachelor, Nick Viall has found himself caught in between two women who hate each other, and on Monday’s episode, Taylor Nolan and Corinne Olympios finally came to blows. However, the first part of their fight was only the tip of the iceberg.
Now, Nick has spoken out, sharing details of exactly what happened that night. “When Corinne shared her side of the story with me about Taylor, I was shocked,” he wrote in a blog post for People. “I wasn’t going to fully ingest the information until I spoke with Taylor, but it was still disappointing to hear. Once I sat with Taylor, it became more clear what the issues were about.”
Despited Corinne’s status among fans as the show’s villain, he has placed the blame on Taylor! “When you strip it down, it became clear that Taylor believed Corinne lacked the emotional maturity to get married or really to be dating me at all,” he explained. “Listening to Taylor talk, it became obvious to me that Taylor didn’t realize that she was guilty of the same thing she saw in Corinne.”
The whole thing left a bad taste in Nick’s mouth. “Taylor either wasn’t self-aware enough to understand how she was coming across or she thought that I wouldn’t notice. Either way, it just felt like at this point that Taylor was too fixated on proving to me that Corinne wasn’t right for me rather than focusing on our relationship,” he surmised. “Giving Corinne the rose had just as much to do with saying goodbye to Taylor as it was to validate my relationship with Corinne. After a pretty intense day, I was looking forward to some one-on-one time with Corinne.”
Of course, their alone time was short-lived, as Taylor returned to confront Corinne about her alleged lies. “I was totally caught off guard when Taylor showed up at dinner to interrupt Corinne and me. What was she there for? Did she want to come back? Did she have more to say to Corinne? Was there something else I didn’t know,” he wondered.
“Saying goodbye is never easy, but having someone come back unexpectedly is no cake walk either,” Nick admitted. “Taylor certainly isn’t saying goodbye without a fight. I think you’ll be interested in what Taylor has to say and how I take it. But that is just the beginning.”
