It’s a Corinne Olympios quote that viewers of The Bachelor will likely never forget; “My heart is gold, but my vagine is platinum”.
One liners were a big part of her personality on the show, and she was definitely one of the fan favorites. Constantly napping, and having regular cravings for cheese pasta and champagne, made her a young beauty that many in the audience could relate too. However, what many were confused by, was the exact meaning of the phrase “platinum vagine”.
She was quoted by E! News as saying “I don’t know!”, when quizzed on the meaning of the phrase. She stated that the line was a slip of tongue, and that she didn’t have any idea what she was thinking at the time.
There are many who watch the show and wonder just how much of the dialogue is ad lib, and how much comes from producers and script writers. If you’re a fan of reality TV, then you’ve probably already come to the realization that most of what we see on screen is not completely organic, if not totally staged.
To add some more context to the phrase, you only need to look at the cult comedy and mockumentary film, Borat, produced by Sacha Baron Cohen. In the film, Cohen’s character used vagine to refer to a vagina in the Kazakh culture. Of course, the word is not actually used in reality, and was instead a simple play on how another culture might try to translate their thoughts into English. While Borat is well known, the word could hardly be considered a part of pop culture, so it is somewhat strange that it managed to find its way into one of the most popular reality TV shows in the world.
Perhaps the phrase was meant to imply that while Corinne Olympios appears outgoing and carefree, she is guarded and selective when it comes to freely giving her love away. Despite what the show might have portrayed, the star said, “It looked like I just went there to have sex, and I didn’t”.
So there you have it. The phrase has been simultaneously explained and played down by Olympios, leaving the real meaning up to anybody’s interpretation.
