Eek! Bachelor contestant Victoria Fuller has an awkward run-in with her ex and country singer Chase Rice during her first one-on-one date with Peter Weber. The brunette beauty gets chosen to dance at a concert with the pilot. While that sounds romantic as hell, she soon finds out that they’ll be serenaded by the country crooner, and the whole thing looked extremely uncomfortable. Caution: Spoilers for Peter’s season are below. Do not keep reading if you don’t want to know!
During week four, Victoria and Peter get to spend a day at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. There, they were met by a crowd of cheering fans for a surprise concert. In true Bachelor fashion, Peter and Victoria stood on a platform and danced while Chase serenaded them on stage. Something seemed amiss because the contestant was visibly uncomfortable — and not just because she had to get her groove on in front of hundreds of people.
While the hunky pilot twirled her around and sang the lyrics at the top of his lungs, Victoria kept glancing up awkwardly toward the “Eyes on You” singer.
“Once they got off stage, Victoria was visibly upset talking to her producer with her arms crossed,” Reality Steve claimed on Twitter on October 2 about the situation. “Peter talked to Chase first. Then Victoria went to talk to Chase behind the tent w/ 2 camera crews filming the entire time. Soooo yeah, definitely more to this story.”
Viewers will see Victoria’s dirty laundry aired during the season. Teasers show her confirming to Peter that she “dated” Chase during the evening portion of their date. However, her fling with the “Ride” singer also stirs up some drama in the house.
Contestant Alayah Benavidez was eliminated during the third week after women in the house told the leading man she was there for the wrong reasons. She crashes a group date in Ohio and is invited by Peter to rejoin the cast. While she was back in the ~real world~ after getting kicked off the reality show, the Texas native got her phone back and learned all the tea on Victoria and tells the other contestants what she found.

Alayah claimed that she had “no idea nobody knew” about Victoria and Chase. “That’s something very personal to me,” the brunette beauty snapped back while confronting the former Miss Texas. “Do you not see that as stirring the pot, which is why you left in the first place?” Yikes, the drama never sleeps.
The gossip outlet claimed in October — while Victoria’s Instagram was still set to private — that Chase was still following her. As of January, the reality babe follows the country singer but he is no longer returning the favor. He currently only follows the Machester City soccer team.
Victoria has received some backlash after Reality Steve claimed that her relationship history includes a few married men. The starlet addressed the rumblings on Instagram on November 22.
“The RUMORS you are hearing are FALSE. There will be a time [and] place where I can defend myself, but for now, I choose to wait,” she captioned a photo kissing her dog. This statement led fans to believe that the drama will be brought to light on the reality show — perhaps on Women Tell All or After the Final Rose?
“HOWEVER, bullying is NOT OK. Nor is it fair. Especially when casting judgment and basing opinions upon pure speculation, assumptions [and] LIES,” she added.
Time will tell what unfolds on Peter’s journey to find love.
