Corinne Olympios is returning to television in a big way. However, she isn't doing so in the way that many would assume. Instead, she's returning to showbiz in a scripted series about dating.
During an interview with the Daily Beast on Tuesday, the former Bachelor In Paradise said that she was “still in the creating process” of a new reality series and also working on a scripted show with How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days producer Christine Peters.
The series will “be about dating in this millennial world we’re in,” she explained, adding, “I think people just get so worked up about creating, like, dating pages, or… I feel like it just becomes such a topic of conversation, like, ‘Oh my God, who are you dating? What kind of guy are you going to date? Does this person even look like their picture?’ I just feel like there are so many questions and new ways of dating, so it’s comical in itself.”
While Olympios will surely use the dating adventures of herself and her friends for inspiration, she won't be going out on new dates in an effort to get material for the new show.
“For material? No!” she confirmed. “I have enough material built up, believe me.”
Olympios also discussed the Bachelor In Paradise scandal she and DeMario Jackson were involved in.
"I’m just really glad that it’s all kind of unfolding, that people are seeing the bigger picture, as opposed to just like ‘media scandal in Paradise.’ I’m really happy that everyone’s moving past it now,” she said. “It’s honestly like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I was so nervous, I was afraid that there would be even more backlash, but I’m really glad that it’s done.”
