Don’t get any ideas, Jax! The Bachelor’s newest villain Corinne Olympios has been stealing the show week after week, and if we didn’t know any better, we’d think she learned a thing or two from one of our favorite reality TV queens: Vanderpump Rules’ Stassi Schroeder!
Twitter users noticed the uncanny resemblance between the two immediately during the premiere of Nick Viall’s season 21 on January 2. Former Bachelor winner Catherine Giudici even reached out to Schroeder via Twitter to let her know the “cute blonde” was giving serious Stassi vibes.
.@stassi, are you watching this?! The cute blonde Corinne is very you. ?

Giudici was certainly not alone. “I have not gotten so many tweets about one topic in my entire social media life — no episode of Vanderpump Rules, nothing,” Schroeder, 28, said on the Friday, January 6, edition of her podcast, “Straight Up With Stassi.”
For her part, Schroeder said, she believes Olympios, 24, more closely resembles Tiffany Trump. But after being inundated with tweets from fans of both shows, “I started seeing myself, because so many people were telling me that!” Schroeder admitted. “I was just staring and staring and looking at photos of her, and I’m like, That’s what I look like. I convinced myself that that’s what I looked like. I mean, she’s a beautiful girl.”

And the comparisons haven’t let up as Olympios napped, bounced and shopped her way to the hometown date portion of the season. As viewers followed her home to Florida and met her nanny, Raquel, on the February 20 episode, Bachelor alum Melissa Rycroft asked Twitter if it’s possible that Olympios is a “reincarnation of Stassi” — and her followers overwhelmingly agreed.

Though they may not be sisters separated at birth, Olympios’ GIF-able moments and “platinum” one-liners have made her a reality star in her own right — and even Schroeder is impressed. “Corinne is either sleeping or hammered,” Schroeder tweeted on February 1. “#goals.”
Corinne is either sleeping or hammered. #goals
