These three know what it’s like to be hated — and loved! Chad Johnson, Corinne Olympios, and Olivia Caridi finally came together during OK! Magazine’s Pre-Oscar event, and well, the photo speaks for itself. Who else is counting down to ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ now?
“We’re just misunderstood,” Chad Johnson wrote on Instagram on Feb. 22, posing in the middle of Olivia Cairidi from Ben Higgins‘ season of The Bachelor and Corrine Olympios, from Nick Viall‘s season. He also added “Team Olichorinne,” giving them a ship name and we’re so on board.
Of course, we all know that these three created a name for themselves during their time on The Bachelor franchise. Chad became the ultimate villain during JoJo‘s season of The Bachelorette, then carried it over to Bachelor in Paradise where he was sent packing almost immediately after arriving.
However, they all have come a long way and aren’t actually hated — we have to say, we want to see them all back on Bachelor in Paradise. Olivia, 24, opened up after getting a ton of backlash after the season, saying she felt really bullied and had a really hard time reading the comments on social media; and Corinne clearly isn’t happy about the way she’s being portraying during Nick’s season as Chad recently revealed that they’ve been texting — and she admitted to him it wasn’t easing being judged. And he revealed it wasn’t easy for him, either.
“I knew that because she was the villain, nobody was really going to be talking to her. She was probably going through this all alone,” Chad revealed in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying that he reached out to her over text message. “So I just wanted to let her know, like, ‘Try not to look at it, let it pass. It will slow down.’ She’s good [now]. I think at first, she had the same emotion as me. She was like, ‘No, I’m good. I got this,’ and then a couple weeks down the line, I think she texted me like, ‘This is getting kind of tough.’”
He also added that while he hadn’t yet met her in person, he was interested. So now we’re interested in hearing how it was meeting her in person, if there were any sparks, and of course, if they’ll be on Paradise — if Nick doesn’t choose her.
HollywoodLifers, would you want to see all three of them on BiP?
