Three 'Bachelor' Villains Walk Into A Bar…

Get me to a screen print shop, for I need to put a photo on a T-shirt, posthaste. On Thursday evening, Bachelor Nation legends Corinne Olympios, Chad Johnson, and Olivia Caridi all ended up at the same pre-Oscars party and posed for a pic together. It is just like the classic joke goes: Three Bachelor/ette villains* walk into a bar and snap the greatest photo in Bachelor/ette history.

*I know all three have been saddled with the “villain” label, but the only actual villain is Johnson. Don’t get me wrong, I was all about his spectacular performance on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette, but his short-lived turn on Bachelor in Paradise was an absolute horror show. And that is putting it lightly. Bachelor contestants Caridi and Olympios, on the other hand, are not villains. They are just really good at reality television. As far as I’m concerned, Caridi and Olympios are the sheroes of their respective seasons. OK, climbing down from my soapbox now. (And yes, that soapbox is full of protein powder canisters.)

The three Bachelor/ette stars have all crossed paths before in one way or another: Olympios and Caridi have hung out, Johnson and Olympios have talked shop, and some fans shipped Caridi and Johnson (to no avail, but whatever, I’ll still call that a path crossing). Oh, and there’s been some speculation about Olympios and Johnson hitting it off on BiP. Again, that is nothing more than speculation, so don’t freak out just yet. Also? Bachelor/ette alumni seem to always be together. What I'm getting at: It was only a matter of time before the villainous triumvirate attended the same pre-Oscars party and took a pic.

Let your eyeballs sink their teeth into this masterpiece.

Johnson's caption raises an important question: Is Team Olichorinne pronounced “Ohl-ih-core-in” or “Ohl-ih-chore-in”? My vote goes to the latter option. The less the portmanteau rolls of the tongue, the better.
