You might think that this is jumping the gun a little bit, but it's time to talk about something important — will Corinne Olympios be on Bachelor in Paradise? The controversial, nanny-having, villain-edit-receiving individual may still be in the running to win Nick Viall's heart on The Bachelor, which is currently airing, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about her future after the show. After all, ABC spilled the beans on Rachel Lindsay being the next Bachelorette before she was even eliminated, so it's never too early to start speculating. The short answer to whether we'll see Corinne on the sandy beaches of BIP Season 4? Umm, doy. Absolutely, 100 percent, I will bet my net worth on it. (Not a very impressive bet, because it's basically just the contents of my refrigerator, but let it be know that I'm all in.)
For one thing, Corinne is all anyone's been able to talk about this season, pretty much since day one. Her antics have been discussed by people who don't even watch the show, and have probably become the reason some people are tuning in. So adding her to the Bachelor in Paradise cast is a no-brainer. Producers want their shows to get views, so a contestant who speaks her mind, takes off her top, and sleeps through rose ceremonies is gold. (Or should I say, platinum?)
And beyond that, Chris Harrison has all but guaranteed Corinne's whereabouts this summer when he told E! News that the only thing standing in the way of her trip to Paradise is that final rose. Harrison said,
"If Corinne is not with Nick at the end of this, I will be packing her bags at the end of this. I will pack her bags, I will carry her plus one carryon with me. I will bring her nanny down. If she doesn’t come to Paradise I will be heartbroken."
Not just an invitation for Corinne herself, but for Raquel as well? That's how you know this is real. Now just cross your fingers that Corinne is eliminated in the next couple episodes, because for as fun a couple as she and Nick would be, this girl was built for Paradise, and I need to see what havoc she wreaks on it.
