'Bachelor' Star Corinne's Business Isn't As Flashy As The Person Who Runs It
Love her or hate her, there's no denying that Bachelor contestant Corinne Olympios knows what she wants out of life. Although she is only 24 years old, Corinne from The Bachelor runs a business, which sounds pretty impressive. As she clarified in the first episode of Nick's season of The Bachelor, "My dad started the business. I am taking over." But still, taking over the family business at such a young age wouldn't be everyone's forte. Yet, for as much as Corinne has been featured on The Bachelor, what her company does hasn't been revealed. Thanks to some internet sleuthing and an interview Corinne gave though, fans can discover what business Corinne from The Bachelor runs.
When The Bachelor first introduced "business owner" Corinne, I made up a whole backstory that her family ran a hotel. Maybe it was because she said she lived and worked with her family and she appeared to be at a lavish oceanfront property in Miami, Florida. Maybe it was because she was shown sunbathing and dipping into an elaborate, hotelesque pool. Maybe it was because she said, "Corinne's world is glamorous." Or maybe it was because I watch too much Jane the Virgin. No matter what the reason, this assumption was wrong. But if you had thought for a second that the fountains and infinity pool were part of Corinne's actual house like I did, then you may understand where I was coming from with my theory.
However, Corinne's company is notably less glamorous than she has let on. That's not to take away from the work she does, but let's just say it's not all gazing off into the horizon in infinity pools.
While Corinne has yet to officially state the name of her company, Bustle's sister site Romper had done some digging on Corinne's profession and discovered a James Olympios from Miami, Florida, who has a relative named Corinne. He owns the company ArmorGarage, which is a supplier of epoxy coatings and flooring products. In an interview with Glamour, Corinne pretty much confirmed that ArmorGarage is the family's company. "I run my family's online business, doing epoxy floorings and roof coatings," Corinne said.
An anonymous source claimed to TMZ that ArmorGarage is the Olympios family business and that Corinne allegedly works mainly in sales. On the company's website, it states that its products of garage floor epoxy coatings, garage floor tiles, and roof and deck coatings have been used by "the US Military, Fortune 500 Companies, US Coast Guard, Work Shops and Home Owners worldwide." That means, if you're in the market to get a durable garage floor, you could call up Corinne's company ArmorGarage.
Since the company discusses its humble beginnings on its website, it is a testament to the family's work ethic that her father James created this company — even if Corinne, the self-proclaimed "very serious businesswoman" isn't officially running it just yet.
As for if her business would cause any conflicts on the off chance that Nick chose her, Corinne had stated in her Bachelor profile, "I own an online business. It's very important to me, but the cool thing is it's online, so I can run it from anywhere." She also told Glamour that she would be willing to relocate if Nick chose her. So, that's certainly a perk of being your own boss and running an online business — you can move your business anywhere to be with the one you love.
