Who Is 'Bachelor' Victoria Fuller, Who's Been Embroiled In Drama?

Spoilers for The Bachelor. Peter Weber has already narrowed down his ladies to the top 15—it feels like his season has gone by incredibly quickly, right??—and included in that number is contestant Victoria Fuller. Because ABC hasn't yet put out bios for the upcoming season, which airs Monday, January 6 at 8 p.m., we don't know a whole lot beyond what spoiler Instagram accounts, Reddit, and Reality Steve (a longtime show spoiler) have been able to dig up. Luckily, we already know she's one to watch, mostly because she was on a date with Weber on October 2 that was heavily spoiled online—and it looked very dramatic. So what do we know so far?

She's from Virginia.

Fuller is 25 and from Virginia Beach. It's not...totally clear what her profession is? According to her LinkedIn, she was a recruiter at TEKsystems (although the company says she hasn't worked there in over a year), and is also a substitute teacher within the Virginia Beach public school system. Her Instagram says she's a medical sales rep, but it's unclear where or whether she's currently employed full-time. She graduated from Old Dominion University in 2015 with a degree in economics.

There has been a ton of off-show drama with her.

Local sources have been busy speaking out about Fuller and her pre-show behavior. In a nutshell, sources around Virginia Beach have been talking about how Fuller has reportedly dated married men in the past and has broken up "three to four" marriages, including ones where she was close friends with the wife. Obviously, these are all just rumors, but Reality Steve says he's "never" heard so many negative stories about one contestant. Ever. Oh God.

Then, just a couple days ago, Fuller got into an altercation with the woman who spoke to Weber about some of these rumors, who may have even warned him off getting together with her at the end of his season. The two had a run-in at a bar, and...chaos ensued.

For her part, Fuller has denied that any of the rumors are true and that she'll defend herself when she's able to:

JEREMIAH 29:11 I’d like to start off by saying thank you to all of my family & friends for the overwhelming support. Even to the strangers who have reached out to show me kindness. THANK YOU. 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. HOWEVER, bullying is NOT ok. Nor is it fair. Especially when casting judgement and basing opinions upon pure speculation, assumptions, & LIES. With that being said— On my best days & especially on my worst days I look to a friend. The best friend I’ve ever had in my life. He does not judge me for what I look like. He does not throw stones when I am down. He makes me smile when I am mad. Licks my tears when I am sad. Lays on my chest when my anxiety is through the roof. And paws my face when I can’t get out of bed some days to tell me, ‘Hey! I’m here. You’re enough. Remember that.’ That friend is my Black Lab, Buxton. I’m so proud to say that my boy is in training to become a #therapydog. Buxton has served as my personal service dog for over a year now, but his new role will be a little different. As a therapy dog Buxton will be providing comfort to children in hospitals, affection to elderly in retirement homes, love to those who may be having a hard time at school, & others who maybe just need a hug! Life will throw you curveballs, but sometimes all you need is some love & loyalty from a 4 legged friend willing to catch those curveballs for you. We may not always know the WHY, but we can rely on the fact that there is a reason. A reason to keep pushing forward wherever we may be in life. A reason that is a lot bigger than us. I trust that God & the Universe are showing me the way. . . . . & just remember.. we all have a story.

TBH, this sort of feels like a Jed situation (except with Weber potentially having more intel earlier in his season, as opposed to Hannah), but I'm extremely bummed out about the whole thing.

She's done well on the show.

Fuller was one of the top four women that Weber's selected—no spoilers here, but it hasn't been confirmed what Weber's final selection was yet anyways. From what we know of leaked information and fan videos, Fuller made enemies of a number of women (she apparently screamed at at least one of them, apparently) but still got a one-on-one date to spend with Peter. As a matter of fact, that's exactly what led to a very dramatic, cringey situation during filming. The date was public (at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Ohio), so a whole bunch of it got spoiled.

Her date was...awkward.

Let's break it down. The two were at a Chase Rice concert, and lo and behold, it turns out that Fuller had dated or been involved with Rice:

So, in a nutshell, imagine you're dating this really cute guy, and the two of you are headed on a whirlwind date. Then who should the producers pick as the musical act for your date but your ex-boyfriend? Fuller apparently looked so mad, and then unfortunately she and Weber both had to talk to Rice in front of the cameras:

There is a 0 percent chance that situation wasn't intentional on the producers' part. TBD on whether she ends up getting the final rose after all this craziness, but we know this situation wasn't enough to get her sent home at the time.

Here's everything we know about Peter's women so far (including how far Victoria's gotten).
