Victoria Fuller will be competing for Peter Weber on The Bachelor’s next season, and host Chris Harrison teases she’s going to surpass all superlatives by creating a lot of bizarre storylines and Bachelor firsts.
Victoria, a 25-year-old medical sales representative from Virginia Beach, VA, will be one of Peter’s 30 bachelorettes when The Bachelor’s 24th season premieres with a three-hour event on Monday, January 6 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
Chris gave The Bachelor viewers a preview of what they can expect to see from Victoria F. on the new season during a Facebook Live video called “Meet the Women” that was posted to The Bachelor’s official Facebook account earlier this week.
Unflattering and controversial rumors have been swirling about Victoria F. in recent weeks as The Bachelor spoilers continue to leak out online, and according to Chris, the bachelorette is definitely a handful.
“Forget all the superlatives I said about everyone else this entire season,” Chris said in the Facebook video.
“Victoria F. is the most — everything. Passionate would be an understatement.”
“And on top of the passion,” he added, “I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a single woman on this show go through as much during her time on the show as Victoria F.”
Chris didn’t get into much detail other than saying Victoria “goes through everything” on Peter’s season.
“Everything that you could go through, she goes through on this show. And kind of, in a weird way, everything that happened was also a Bachelor first. It was really bizarre,” Chris explained.
Chris went on to compare Victoria F.’s experience on The Bachelor’s 24th season to the iconic movie Forrest Gump, which stars Tom Hanks and documents a seemingly-average man’s incredible life experiences.
“It’s kind of like, in a weird way, watching Forrest Gump. And I know that’s a weird analogy — it’s a really strange one,” Chris said.
“But it’s like, ‘Wow, he’s in the Vietnam War,’ and then it’s like, ‘Oh, he started Bubba Gump Shrimp,’ and, ‘Oh, he’s on the moon,’ and, ‘Oh, he met the President.’ So all of that, but in a crazy way. That would be Victoria F.”
“I don’t know, I probably shouldn’t deem her the Forrest Gump of the show; that’s not really fair, but hopefully you get what I mean,” Chris concluded. “I’ll probably get in trouble for that one.”
Some of the drama that allegedly revolves around the bachelorette will include when Victoria and Peter have a one-on-one date early in the season in which country singer Chase Rice serenades them at a concert.
It turns out Victoria actually dated Chase before The Bachelor season began filming and so Peter’s date turned out to be very awkward for both Victoria and Chase, who were upset at the show’s producers for setting that up. (Click here for Chase’s comments on that date).
And according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger, Victoria F. will be caught up in unprecedented drama during a climactic part of the season.
Carbone recently reported Victoria F. has a scandalous past, including several affairs with the husbands of some of Victoria’s friends, that comes to light on The Bachelor.
Carbone detailed some startling and unflattering accusations he had heard about Victoria F. while The Bachelor season was filming in an October 28 blog post.
“I can honestly say in all my years doing this, I have never had so many negative stories and as many people contact me about one person than I have this season with Victoria Fuller. It’s been unreal to be honest,” Carbone wrote at the time.
“First email I received was back on Sept. 7th, two weeks before filming even began, and I was told Victoria is contestant and has a horrible reputation in the Virginia Beach area for, well, being with married men… Emails kept coming, and coming, and coming, and coming all saying the same thing.”
According to Carbone, the emails all alleged Victoria had broken up several marriages.
“So I looked. And I found. And I’m not talking about this happening once, or even twice. The info I was receiving was talking about her having done this three or four times,” Carbone wrote.
“The wives of the husbands that Victoria was having relationships with, were actually women Victoria knew and was friends with. Like, had attended their wedding… I personally was in touch with women whose now ex-husbands were involved in relationships with Victoria while still married, and both confirmed it to me.”
Carbone added, “That is some next level bullsh-t and someone who doesn’t give a flying f-ck about others. Her coming on the show is all about Victoria, what this show can do for her, notoriety, [Instagram] followers, etc.”
