“Silicon Valley” star Thomas Middleditch is a huge “Bachelor” fan and he’s not afraid to express his feelings about the ABC dating show.

“It’s like a masterclass in human manipulation,” he told TMZ recently of why he watches “The Bachelor.” “You get to see all the various sides of our human element all in one show.”

And as a “Bachelor” fan, he’s well acquainted with last season’s big villain, Corrin ne Olympios. With a penchant for drama and clothing optional attitude, Olympios created a lot of enemies among her fellow bachelorettes and the show’s fandom. And Middleditch is no different.

In speaking of her tactics, Middleditch showed a similar dislike for President Donald Trump.

“Corrine reminded me of Trump. It was kind of sad,” he said.

When asked why he felt that way, the actor responded, “Re-watch it. It’s like a mirror for the Trump and [Hillary Clinton] election. I think she’s probably a really sweet person, but her tactics were very Trumpian.”
