Corinne Olympios shares her feelings about Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi’s relationship and, in true “Corn” style, she isn’t holding back.

Nick Viall’s sexual chemistry with Corinne Olympios during his season of The Bachelor was off the charts but, in the end, Vanessa Grimaldi won his heart. Although Corinne will soon have a chance to find her own love story on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, she has a thing or two to say about Nick’s relationship with Vanessa.

It’s been almost five months since Nick sent Corinne home after filming the hometown dates episode. Now Corinne is sharing her thoughts about the newly engaged couple who are living together in Los Angeles while Nick competes on Dancing with the Stars. And no, she’s not gushing over their love story — she thinks it’s fake news.

Corinne calls Nick out

Fake. Bogus. Not the real deal. Oh, Corn. Would we expect anything less from you?

Okay, so we’re putting a few extra words in Corinne’s mouth but is any of this a shocker? During a recent interview with Sirius XM Hit 1, Corinne said that while she has nothing against the Bachelor or his bride-to-be, she thinks they are totally phony with each other.

“I have a lot of respect for both of them,” Corinne said when asked about Nick and Vanessa’s relationship. “I just personally don’t think that they’re compatible. They’re so phony with each other.”

"“I lived with Vanessa and dated Nick — that’s not how either one of them really are. And I’m like, ‘What are you guys doing?'”"

Are Nick and Vanessa together for the wrong reasons?

Many fans who watched Nick and Vanessa on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose agreed that they didn’t look thrilled to be with each other. Since then, they have been posting plenty of cute couples photos and Vanessa has been spotted cheering Nick on during his Dancing with the Stars performances.

Corinne isn’t the only one who thinks their relationship is phony. Blogger Reality Steve states that when Nick took the Bachelor gig he had no intention of marrying anyone and was on the show to further his career in show biz.

During one of Steve’s podcasts, Abby Draper, who writes for TV Lust, revealed that she met with Nick several times and it was evident that he didn’t take the Bachelor gig to find love.

"“He very, very, very much loves himself. I don’t think he wanted to find love at all … he’s trying his best to stay in the spotlight.”"

Will Nick and Vanessa get married after Dancing with the Stars?

Although Nick and Vanessa are doing their best to convince everyone that their love is here to stay, Corinne Olympios may be on to something. Nick tells Us Weekly that the couple is nowhere near the wedding planning stage. Heck, they’re still getting to know each other.

Considering Nick and Vanessa only went on a few dates while filming The Bachelor, not rushing to the altar is probably a smart move. But time will tell if Nick is putting things off because he has no intentions of marrying Vanessa.

Do you agree with Corinne? Are Nick and Vanessa faking their relationship for fame?
