Olivia Caridi Or Lace Morris: Who Is 'The Bachelor' Season 20 Villain? [Spoilers]

Cheryl Phillips

Every season of The Bachelor has a contestant who is pegged the "mean girl" or "villain." Just one week into Season 20, it appears that this will be a drama-filled season with two girls getting the villain edit — Lace Morris and Olivia Caridi.

Who will turn out to be the bigger villain, and how long do Lace and Olivia last with Bachelor Ben Higgins? Here's the scoop on both girls, spoilers included.

However, Ben seems to be more than aware that something may be a little off with Lace. In his blog on People, Ben wrote that he was "floored" that Lace pulled him aside after the first rose ceremony and wasn't thrilled that she questioned his intentions.

"When Lace pulled me aside, I was floored, honestly. After all that had gone on that night (and I hadn't even seen the half of it!) was she really questioning my intentions after I had just sent seven incredible women home?! But I guess you'll have to see next week. Just the first of an immeasurable amount of twists, turns and surprises..."

Although Lace's run as a mean girl is short, Olivia Caridi will apparently take the position and turn into this season's villain. The Virginia-based news reporter received Ben's first impression rose on Week 1, and her cattiness comes through by the second week when she makes snide remarks about one of the contestants during a group date.

Check out the video below to get a hint of what Olivia's attitude will be like this season.

But that's not all. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Olivia broke off a serious relationship shortly before she left to film the show and is pretending to be a Christian to get Ben's attention.

It sounds like there's big-time drama ahead with Olivia, who will undoubtedly get a bigger villain edit than Lace. However, she'll do a good job of fooling Ben into keeping her around for awhile. She's rumored to last until Week 6 when she will supposedly be dumped on a two-on-one date in the Bahamas.

Watch The Bachelor Season 20 on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, followed by Bachelor Live (through Week 4) at 10 p.m. ET.
