Before Corinne Olympios entertained us with her long naps, love for sushi and her nanny, Olivia Caridi took the reins of being the Bachelor villain. While both women have distinctly stirred drama in their own right, many fans have likened the two controversial personalities– something that didn’t go unnoticed to Olivia.

Olivia, who was one of the most hated women during Ben Higgin’s Bachelor season, recently met with the season 21 villain and shared the photo on Twitter.

Olivia certainly knows what it’s like to get the villain edit. She scored the first impression season 20 and was deemed a front runner. However, after contestant Lace Morris was no longer in the picture, the show found another “crazy” in the form of Olivia, who always had a trick up her sleeve.

But unlike Olivia, who is not a fan of her reputation on the show, Corinne seems to embrace the title. “She’s very similar in real life as she is on the show,” Olivia told People about her encounter with Corinne. “She’s so tiny, which I wasn’t expecting. But she’s very dry, she’s confident, she likes to say whatever she wants to say, which I respect.”
“We randomly got lunch. A fellow person from Nick’s season kind of set us up and I wanted to impart my villain advice. But she didn’t need it — she’s good,” added Olivia, who says that Corinne is “loving” the attention. “I was the one that was shying away, not on social media. She’s posting pictures, she’s loving it. She’s like, ‘I’m strong. I don’t really need your advice.’ “
“We never spoke about Nick at all,” said Olivia, who doesn’t know how long Corinne will last on the show. “She just was talking about some drama and we ended up not even mentioning Nick at all.”
