'The Bachelor Villian': Do You Hate Or Love Corinne?

'The Bachelor Villian': Do You Hate Or Love Corinne?

Do you want love or the spotlight?


On every reality television show, there is always one specific person that the directors strategically place within the mix in hopes of keeping things interesting. "The Bachelor" is just one of the many shows in which this tactic is used, and on this season of "The Bachelor," the one everyone despises is Corinne Olympios.

Corinne is a 24-year-old following in her father's footsteps and taking on the role of a proud online business owner. She lives with her family and their nanny who makes her snacks with the snap of a finger.

This young lady has made it quite clear to both the audience and the other women on the show that she is not there to make friends. She is after one thing and one thing only, and that thing is Nick. She didn't even wait until the second episode to lay a smooch on Nick... or more than a few smooches. She got out of that limo with class, but that class was ruined a little later in the episode when she full on surprised Nick with a make-out session the first night they met.

The second episode was also full of surprises and revealed way more than Corinne's evil ways. Corinne took her top off during a photo shoot and placed her naked chest against Nick. A few moments after, she turned around to face (and flash) everyone on the show right before placing Nick's hands over her chest. This shocked everyone, and from the vibe of the looks Nick was giving, he was shocked too. The photographer, however, was ecstatic and he announced that Corinne was the winner of the photo shoot competition. This raised some eyebrows among the other ladies on the show and the audience watching.

Shortly after, Nick gave Corinne a rose. This raised even more questions. Was Nick really there to find the love of his life? Could Corinne actually be the type of woman he desires? Does a women simply taking her top off make her a winner? Does having no self-respect on this major TV show scream "I deserve a rose?"

Some may say she is just doing what the other women aren't, but personally I find it to be a little much, and a tad insulting. Another argument I have heard is that Corinne is simply comfortable in her own skin and is not afraid to show herself off. Yes, I believe a woman should be comfortable with herself but when it comes to the extreme measures she has to take in order to get attention, it becomes pathetic and maddening. Corinne did not deserve that rose because she took her top off, the photo shoot was based on who had the best connection with Nick through the pictures that were being taken, and a connection is not just found with skin to skin contact. That assumption is false and repulsive on both the producers and the photographers part.

I'm sorry, but if your top has to be off and your boobs need to be pressed up against a man for him to notice you, and for others to notice you, then you aren't looking for love. You are looking for the spotlight.

I hate to break it to you Corinne, but your spotlight will end soon, and you'll be sent home just like the other attention seekers were in the previous seasons of "The Bachelor." You and your drama may make for a great TV show right now, but it is a poor excuse of the representation of women and what winning must be tied to. It's a shame that producers need to put individuals like you in the show just for it to be entertaining starting out. Quite frankly, I would like the show a whole lot better if you weren't in it.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!?

Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
