The first episode of Peter Weber’s season of “The Bachelor” has yet to premiere, but Bachelor Nation is already digging up dirt about the contestants — and we might just have a villain.
Since being announced in mid-December, the internet has zeroed in on the 30 ladies vying for “Pilot Pete’s” heart, including Victoria Fuller, a 25-year-old from Virginia.
But according to blogger Reality Steve, widely known as “The Bachelor” expert, Fuller has a dark past in her hometown of Virginia Beach.
“I’ve alluded to this earlier in the season about hearing things regarding Victoria, and I’ve basically spent the last month speaking with people in the Virginia Beach area, and I reveal everything that I’ve found,” he writes in a spoiler blog about Fuller. “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.”
However, Fuller dispelled rumors on her Instagram account, and while she didn’t call out Steve Carbone, the blogger behind Reality Steve, by name, she refers to online bullies in the cryptic November post.
“The RUMORS you are hearing are FALSE. There will be a time & place where I can defend myself, but for now I choose to wait,” she wrote in that caption to a picture with her dog, Buxton. “HOWEVER, bullying is NOT ok. Nor is it fair. Especially when casting judgement and basing opinions upon pure speculation, assumptions, & LIES.”
Reality Steve also revealed that Weber and Fuller go on a date to country singer Chase Rice’s concert, but it turns out to be an awkward outing because the bombshell is rumored to have once dated Rice, per the blog.
According to her ABC bio, Fuller “works part-time at a yoga studio, but her true passion is her career in medical sales.” In her Instagram info, she writes that she is a medical sales rep as well as an “M.A. Econ student.”
While she’s “looking for a guy that can make her laugh and melt her heart,” she also expressed in her bio that she and her dog are a “package deal.”
“She wants a man who can not only give her unconditional love, but can also give that love to her dog, Buxton, because they are a package deal,” the bio reads.
The three-hour premiere of Season 24 of “The Bachelor” featuring Peter Weber airs on ABC at 8 p.m. EST on Monday night.
