The Bachelor Nation babe is crafting her own path through the ‘Bachelor’ franchise. The 28-year-old first arrived on our screens for Peter Weber’s season of “The Bachelor” and has been making waves most recently on the current season of “Bachelor In Paradise.”
After enjoying some sand and surf with two men on ‘BiP’s signature beach in Mexico, Fuller has recently been making headlines for an alleged romance with a new Bachelor Nation man; Nick Viall may have indirectly spilled the beans on her romance with Greg Grippo via an intriguing TikTok!
For the last few weeks, Bachelor Nation fans on social media have been pondering exactly what went down between Fuller and her former squeeze, “The Bachelor’s” Johnny DePhillipo.
On the second of the two-part “Bachelor In Paradise” finale aired on Tuesday, November 22nd, Fuller was questioned about her rumored romance during “After The Final Rose,” and she and DePhillipo were given an opportunity to discuss what went wrong with their relationship, which ultimately ended on-screen with an engagement.
Fuller And DePhillipo Talk It Out On ‘After The Final Rose’
The formerly engaged duo was given a chance to clear the air last night during the ‘After The Final Rose’ special.
Fuller confronted her former fiancé and told him there would not be an engagement in their future if they couldn’t cut down on the amount of “toxic” fighting. DePhillipo responded that he believed her ultimatum “fits [her] narrative.”
When Fuller questioned DePhillipo on his meaning of ‘narrative’, he attributed it to the rumors they “now had to talk about.”
DePhillipo revealed Fuller had “constantly” reassured the rumors of her relationship with Grippo were “not true.” She then clarified that the untrue element of the rumors were the whispers she had cheated with Grippo.
Fuller then questioned her ex-fiancé on his opinion concerning “the appropriate amount of time to move on” after DePhillipo allegedly called her a “f-ing c–t.”
Fuller later took to her Instagram story to reiterate her claims.
DePhillipo quickly shot down her accusation, saying, “It did not go down like that.” He also continued his statement by adding, “If anyone who knows me they know I would not demean a person like that, or a woman, first of all.”
“The only reason why I’m up here right now is because you made this public,” DePhillipo continued. “You decided to make everything you told me wasn’t true, come to light. And now I’m up here addressing it.”
Fuller then reiterated she was “not trying to hurt” her ex by coming forward, and also reminded DePhillipo she “cared about” him.
“You cannot make these accusations that I cheated on you when you know d**n well that isn’t true,” she also added.
Fuller would later reveal her belief that her ex wanted the cheating narrative to be true so he did not “have to take accountability for what happened in [their] relationship,” to which DePhillipo vehemently denied.
Host Jesse Palmer soon intervened and asked Fuller if she was aware of the social media chatter and if she and Grippo are in a relationship.
“Yes, Greg and I are together,” she responded. When asked if there was cheating involved, Fuller responded “absolutely not” multiple times.
DePhillipo responded that he “would still consider talking to someone while we were working on our issues, cheating or emotional cheating,” to which the studio audience applauded.

Bachelor Nation experienced and reacted to multiple bombshell aspects of Fuller and Grippo’s new romance, including that the duo are now sporting matching new ink!

Some Bachelor Nation fans are steadfast in their belief that the new couple won’t find ‘paradise’ with each other.
“#BIP Greg Grippo and Victoria Fuller deserve each other,” one Bachelor Nation Twitter user wrote, “They are both horrible human beings. This season seemed to have lots of kind men getting screwed over by wicked women. Casting needs to do better.”
“Tbh Greg Grippo and Victoria Fuller are a great couple because they are both villains and now no one will have to suffer through dating them,” another ‘BiP’ viewer tweeted.
