Olivia Caridi is one of the girls trying to win the heart of Ben Higgins this season on The Bachelor 2016. Of course, every season there are a few girls that show up in hopes of improving their career and not just to try and find love. The rumors are flying that Olivia Caridi might be one of those girls this season. OK! Magazine shared that Olivia Caridi is actually a news anchor and might just be there to try to get her career going. Olivia won Ben over on night one and got the first impression rose.
A source spoke out about it and is saying that Olivia Caridi is not there for the right reasons. It looks like career is her main focus and being on television might be the perfect way for a news anchor to end up with hosting jobs or a job at a huge news station. Some of the girls from the show have gone on to do television such as Jillian Harris and Ali Fedotowsky. Here is what the source had to say about Olivia’s plans.
“She just wants to be famous. She’s really an atheist. She wants to seem compatible with Ben [Higgins].”
An atheist would not be a good match for Ben Higgins considering that he is a Christian. OK Here Is The Situation shared that Ben even has a tattoo that is a scripture. His tattoo is Proverbs 16:3. It says “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” Ben was even the Director of Faith Based Affairs International Volunteer Head Quarters Volunteer in Cuzco, Peru, and worked as an intern at the Warsaw Community Church.
Olivia Caridi actually had a boyfriend, but dumped him so that she could go on the show and try to win Ben over. With a split that soon, it might be hard to be over the person. OK Here Is The Situation shared a little more about what is going on with Olivia. She explained to Ben that she left her job to be there to meet him. This could be one reason that Ben liked Olivia Caridi right away because he felt like she was serious about the show.

The news station still has Olivia Caridi up on their site like she works there. They could be holding her job for her, but if they are, Olivia isn’t telling Ben that and made it sound like she left just to try to win his heart. According to OK Here Is The Situation, Josh Rose is the guy that Olivia allegedly dumped to be on the show. He is a third-year law student.

It turns out that Lace Morris is also trying to work on her career. She is an aspiring model, and the way she is acting on the show, everyone will remember her name. That might not necessarily help Lace out on her career, though. If you want this show to get your career going, then you will need to make a good impression.
So far Olivia Caridi has not shared her thoughts on these accusations. Olivia could really be looking for love, but just see it as an added bonus if it enhances her career at the same time. There are rumors like this every season, but of course none of them women ever admit to being there for the wrong reasons.
Do you think that Olivia Caridi joined the show for the wrong reasons? Will Ben pick up on the fact that she might be working on her career instead of just trying to find love? Sound off in the comments below on your thoughts and don’t miss The Bachelor on Monday nights on ABC.
