Victoria Fuller is the most controversial contestant on The Bachelor. She’s received backlash for numerous reasons. But her latest scandal has fans accusing Weber of dating an alleged racist.
This article contains spoilers for Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor. As TV Shows Ace reported, Weber said his season won’t have spoilers. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Go back to the homepage if you want to avoid spoilers.
Peter Weber seen holding hands with contestant
TMZ got the photos of Weber holding hands with one of the contestants. Victoria Fuller and Weber were walking around her hometown. She made it into the hometown dates, which means she made it far into the season despite her controversies. She’s been a controversial woman, long before the season even started. So, if she made it this far into the show, then it’s going to be one heck of a season.
Victoria Fuller’s reputation is on the line
According to Bachelor blogger, Reality Steve, there’s a lot that fans don’t know about her. Back in his October 2019 blog post, he teased that he received many rumors from acquaintances about Fuller, most of which include a history of being involved with married men. She also dated Chase Rice, who makes an appearance this season. Awkward.
But there is no way to confirm any of these rumors. Nonetheless, it’s made Bachelor fans wonder if she’s there for the right reasons. Before working full-time as a medical sales representative in her hometown of Virginia Beach, she was a model. So, it’s possible that Fuller wants to expand on her modeling career once again.
Modeling for a “white lives matter” clothing brand
Bachelor Nation also snooped into her past and found that she previously modeled for a clothing brand that promoted the white lives matter movement, as reported via Cosmopolitan. In a series of photos posted to Twitter, Fuller models clothes that read “Blue Lives Matter” and “White Lives Matter.” In some of the photos, she also wears a shirt with the Confederate flag, which has racist ties. Bachelor fans have wondered if Weber is dating a racist.

‘Bachelor’ contestant defends herself
In lieu of the controversy, Fuller defended herself on Instagram. She claims that the rumors and allegations against her are “false.” She went on to say that she would find the right “time & place where I can defend myself, but for now I choose to wait.” Maybe she’ll wait until the reunion to address her past.
Fuller said she won’t tolerate anymore online hate. She accused fans of “basing opinions upon pure speculation, assumptions, & LIES.” Weber’s rumored girlfriend said that there’s a lot more to her than online rumors.

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.
