On Monday's episode of The Bachelor, Corinne Olympios decides to take matters into her own hands to secure a rose. She shows up to Nick Viall's hotel room unannounced, hoping to be able to convince him of the connection they share.

Nick invites her in and viewers of the ABC series hear some loud kissing from behind the door. But the pair don't go any further than that. Nick tells her that they should take things slow, and Corinne leaves his room defeated.

Twitter users — including former Bachelor star Sean Lowe — had some strong feelings regarding Corinne's attempt to sleep with Nick. 

Sean's tweet resulted in some backlash from fans, who accused him of slut shaming the contestant. 

Nick did not openly comment on Corinne on Twitter, but he did retweet the above response from Twitter user @corinnesnanny. Other women also began to flood Sean's tweet with responses defending Corinne and shutting down his slut shaming: 

Corinne isn't the first Bachelor contestant to try and sleep with someone on the show. In fact, one of the topics heading into Nick's season of The Bachelor was the fact that he slept with two contestants while appearing on previous seasons. Nick faced backlash after revealing that he slept with Andi Dorfman during their fantasy suite date. The following season he slept with Kaitlyn Bristowe on her season of The Bachelorette. The women competing on this season questioned his intentions for appearing on the show because of his past.
