Corinne Olympios believes The Bachelorette producers made a mistake by not casting her as the lead.

The bachelorette who competed on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor last year doesn't appreciate being passed up for The Bachelorette two seasons in a row, as she lost the position to Rachel Lindsay for Season 13 and Becca Kufrin for Season 14.

"I think if they even had half a brain, I would have been The Bachelorette," Corinne told the Observer, adding that she "absolutely" would have accepted the role if offered to her.

Looking back, Corinne has no idea why producers didn't choose her considering she was arguably the breakout star of The Bachelor last year.

"I don't know [why], maybe I'm a liability. I don't f-cking know. I mean, it would have been so epic -- fun, crazy, wild, truth, you never know what you're going to get from me," Corinne bragged.

Corinne has put herself out there and dated since Nick broke up with her, but she admitted "it's hard" to find a solid relationship now. (However, based on her Instagram account, it appears she may have a new boyfriend, as she posted a Thursday photo of the couple kissing).

"People think they know you already, or they judge you really hard based on what they've seen on TV. It can go any which way. And I don't do apps," Corinne explained.

Corinne is actually far removed from The Bachelor franchise at this point, telling the Observer she doesn't feel like she's a part of the inner-circle.

The bubbly blonde beauty has remained in touch with girls from her season "for the most part," but she also confessed "they're really cliquey for the other most part."

She added, "I'm not in that clique because I just do my own thing, and they kind of know that. I don't have time for that. I actually do work, and I do things, and I'm trying to make a living for myself."

Corinne, in fact, revealed she's "not interested" at all in getting involved with guys from Bachelor Nation and someone like Luke Pell couldn't be further from her type.

Corinne also said she wouldn't date any of the suitors from Becca's currently-airing season of The Bachelorette either.

"It's ridiculous. Put your f-cking hair away. They just want to stand out and have no other way of standing out. The guys suck," Corinne said.

While Corinne was initially thrilled about Nick starring on The Bachelor for her season, she seems to be disappointed in the aspiring actor now that she has gotten to know him.

"I was genuinely excited for Nick. I almost crashed my car when I saw. I swear. My sister sent me a picture from Instagram that said Nick's the new Bachelor, and I was like Holy m-therf-cking god," she gushed.

But now, Corinne said of her former flame, "Nick's just doing Nick. He's not really friendly to people. I think he's just really unhappy in his own life. And I wish the best for him. That's all."

Corinne insisted Nick would be "a loser" if he chooses to appear on another reality TV show in the future but she's definitely up for another shot at finding love on-camera.

"Of course, I would [do it]. I have nothing against the franchise. I love my Bachelor fam. It's where corn was born," she said.
