Corinne Olympios, Raven Gates Return For ‘Bachelorette’ 2017 Premiere!


Though Bachelor 2017 is officially over, we haven’t seen the last of Nick Viall’s headline-making contestants!

Obviously, there will be more of Rachel Lindsay on Bachelorette 2017 come May, and now we’re hearing three other former contestants will show up on her premiere!

We were first alerted to the news via a Twitter fan, who wrote, “What are some of the girls from Nick's season doing at the bachelor mansion? Going to meet Rachel's men?”

Though we didn’t know which women it was at the time, Us Weekly sources soon identified three fan favorites from Season 21!

According to the magazine, the gals who returned to Bachelor Mansion on March 14 are runner up Raven Gates, Alexis “Shark Dolphin” Waters, and the always controversial Corinne Olympios.

Apparently, the three stopped by during filming, arriving in a Mercedes Sprinter. But why were they there?

Seeing as it was the first week of production for the show — with limo arrivals on March 16 — we’re assuming they filmed a segment with the Bachelorette.

More specifically, it sounds like one of those talks between the lead and other franchise stars, where they’re given tips on what to expect from the “journey.”

“They're there tondo[sic] the whole ‘talk’ thing w Rachel for the first episode. We see it every season,” spoiler blogger Reality Steve confirmed.

Of course, this is a little different than in the past, when Nick and JoJo Fletcher had people like Sean Lowe and Ali Fedotowsky offering up advice.

Instead of input from past leads, the Dallas native is just chatting things over with her friends, who have just as much experience.

For the record, Corinne and Rachel might make an unusual pair, but they’re friends nonetheless.

“I love Corinne!" the attorney said on Ellen last month. “Unfortunately, [viewers] only get to see some sides of Corinne. … I got to see all sides living in the house with her.”

If these cameos aren’t enough for ya, we do already know of one celebrity appearance.

Legendary NBA player Kareem Abdul Jabbar will guest star on a basketball group date which is filming this week.
