Corinne Olympios: America totally wants me to have my own reality show, a lot of networks are interested

Corinne Olympios is convinced she should get her own reality show because fans want to see more of her.
"I think America is interested in me having a reality TV show with my family," Corinne, 24, told E! News after taping The Women Tell All special, which is set to air Monday, March 6 on ABC.
Corinne was just eliminated by Nick Viall in the latest The Bachelor episode after he visited her hometown of Miami, FL, and met her family, including the famous nanny Raquel.
"My family is awesome, as you all could tell on my hometown date. America totally wants it, I hear it all the time," Corinne said of her potential show.
"There is a lot of talk about it. I'm going to say a lot of networks are interested. Obviously, my loyalty is here with ABC and things like that, so there's still a lot of stuff to be worked out, but we'll see what comes in the future."
Reports circulated earlier this month that the Season 21 villain is in talks with ABC for her own The Bachelor spinoff. A source recently told OK! Weekly that Corinne "just wants to be famous."
"It's ridiculous that a woman in her twenties would need a nanny, but that's what would make this must-watch TV," the source said. "Corinne is a walking reality show."
Corinne was dubbed the villain early on when she aggressively pursued The Bachelor star by taking her bikini top off during a group date, asking Nick to lick whipped cream off her chest and attempting to seduce him inside his Bimini hotel room. The blonde bombshell constantly rubbed her fellow bachelorettes the wrong way.
While most The Bachelor fans are hoping Corinne appears on Bachelor in Paradise this summer -- including Nick, who begged her to join the Season 4 cast during a brief interview with E! News -- it doesn't seem like she's interested.
"I don't think so. I don't know," Corinne said when asked if she'll be packing her bags to film Paradise in Mexico. "First of all, I wasn't even asked yet, so let's not jump the gun, but I don't know. It's too early for me to tell right now."
Paradise may not be Corinne's cup of tea, but The Bachelorette definitely would be. ABC already selected Rachel Lindsay as its Season 13 star, however, if the network approached Corinne about a future season, she'd "of course" consider being the franchise's leading lady.
"I would've loved to be the Bachelorette, and I would always love to be the Bachelorette," Corinne admitted. "If that happens in the future, that'd obviously be a great honor. Whomever gets chosen to be the Bachelorette now or in the future, definitely take it. It's a great opportunity."
