Corinne Olympios Says She’s Dating Someone New: “I’m Really Happy”

Corinne Olympios’ romantic life certainly hasn’t cooled off since she competed for Nick Viall’s heart on The Bachelor. After a brief engagement to an ex-boyfriend after the show ended, she now has a new man in her life — and it sounds like things are going well.


Olympios said she met her new guy when they were set up by a mutual friend. And the matchmaker might even be someone we know. “It was a set up from a friend. A reality TV friend,” she teased. She didn’t specify who it was that made the love connection, but we can’t help wondering if it was DeMario Jackson, whom Olympios bonded with following the infamous Bachelor in Paradise season four scandal.

Olympios also declined to name her new boyfriend, but she did spill a few details about him, telling People, “He’s … hilarious, which I need. I need someone funny. My past relationships, they didn’t laugh at funny things.”

Unfortunately, her new guy isn’t a SpongeBob SquarePants super-fan like she is and doesn’t watch the show with her, but he appreciates her appreciation. “He’s okay with me making SpongeBob references and laughing with me about them,” she said. “Past guys I’ve dated were like, ‘Ew. That’s so immature.’ It’s like, ‘C’mon just laugh about it. Be cute for a second. You’re so boring!'”

She added one more adoring detail about her man — “I just think that he is so caring and so supportive of me” — before deciding that it might be best to leave things there. “I just feel like I’ve been through so much with relationships in this past single year that I need to take it in my own slow pace,” she said. “And when I’m ready — you know I’m not hiding anything — pictures will start popping up, but I’m just not going to blurt it out to the world just yet.”

While we’ll definitely be watching for a peek at the new couple, we’re also curious about what a happy relationship means for her future with Bachelor Nation. When asked if she ever sees herself back on the reality show, she told People, “I have no bad relationship with the Bachelor family, so I mean, I don’t really know. Whatever is to come is to come, and I’ll decide at the time.”

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
