“I was definitely surprised that I got sent home,” she readily admitted. She elaborated on her experiences with Viall, the 36-year-old software sales executive from Milwaukee who now lives in Chicago,“We had such an amazing hometown date and things went really well with my family. I just thought we had a lot of fun. We talked about a lot of emotional things, and I’m super blindsided by going home.”

As she revealed, “there was a lot of really intense and emotional conversations that weren’t shown; it wasn’t all sexy and flirty all the time.” And with regards to being portrayed in a less than flattering light in some episodes, Olympios explained, “I was just doing me. I’ll do what I want to do in my time.” She rejected any characterization of her as the villain of the piece: “A villain to me does things viciously to other people; I never did anything vicious to anybody.”
