Reality Steve, who is a Bachelor Nation insider, tweeted out, “One of the more random Bachelor “couples” that I can’t say I ever would’ve guessed. I don’t know how long this has been going on or how serious it is, but I can confirm that Victoria Fuller is currently together in Iowa for the week with Chris Soules. Discuss.”

Chris has been embroiled in legal trouble for the past several years after he was involved in a hit and run, leading to the death of a man. Victoria herself was also embroiled in her own controversy this year.

The Bachelor's Chris Soules Makes First Appearance in 2 Years Following Deadly Car Crash

Chris Soules walks the red carpet while attending 102.7 KIIS FM’s 2019 Jingle Ball held at The Forum on Friday night (December 6) in Los Angeles.

This marks the 38-year-old former The Bachelor star’s first public appearance in two years following his involvement in a deadly car crash.

Chris has been laying low since April 2017, when he was arrested for allegedly fleeing the scene of a car collision before police officers arrived. He allegedly was driving a pickup truck and rear-ended a tractor-trailer. The driver of the tractor-trailer died. Chris was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident and was sentenced to two years probation.

During his appearance at Jingle Ball, Chris told ET that he’s not “really returning to the spotlight,” but just at the event to enjoy a fun evening with friends. Other Bachelor Nation stars in attendance included Hannah Brown, Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti, Taylor Nolan, and Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes.

“I’m here for a really great concert,” Chris added. “I’m here in L.A. and kind of just living the dream a little bit.”

In regards to the past couple years, Chris said, “It has been tough but it makes you appreciate the people around you, family, friends — and how hard things can get, you just have to press on.”

The Bachelor's Chris Soules Explained Why He Fled Scene of Fatal Car Accident

In April of 2017, former Bachelor Chris Soules was in a fatal car accident which resulted in the death of a man driving a tractor on a rural road. Chris, who was driving the car that hit the man’s tractor, left the scene of the crime and was later arrested for fleeing.

Now, Chris is explaining why he decided to leave the scene of the crime.

“I was on my way to pick up one of our hired men,” Chris said on GMA on Thursday (September 19). “I was driving down a rural road, a country road in the dark and the next thing I know I’m basically coming to inside of one of our pickups.”

After the crash, Chris said, “All I remember is waking up and — and radioing to my father and all my hired men, just saying, ‘I need help.’”

When the paramedics arrived, Chris decided it was okay for him to leave the scene.

“I don’t know that I was thinking clearly. I notified the authorities of what had happened, the paramedics were there, but now I know I was scared and wanted to be in a safer place and be outta there,” Chris added. “I had nothing to hide, honestly.”

Police reports form the scene of the crime indicate there were alcoholic beverages in the car that Chris was driving, but Chris said that car was used for work purposes only and shared by many men.

“I was not drinking that night. The fact is the truck is not mine. It’s not even in my name. We employ over 15 people that — at any time use that truck for work-related things … and those cans could have been anybody’s,” Chris added. “There were four witnesses that swore under oath that they saw no evidence of me appearing to be intoxicated or under the influence of any sort of drug or alcohol.”

Chris Soules Ordered to Pay $2.5 Million in Fatal Car Crash Case

Chris Soules is paying up after his April 2017 car accident that left a man dead.

The 37-year-old former Bachelor star and his family have been ordered to pay $2.5 million to the family of the victim as part of a wrongful death lawsuit.

The parties entered the agreement back in January but it was only recently approved by a judge.

This week, Chris was also set to be sentenced in court for leaving the scene of the accident but was granted a delay.

According to TMZ, the delay will give the court time to remove the victim impact statements from the pre-sentencing report.

The sentencing will reportedly be rescheduled as early as August. Chris faces up to two years in prison.

'Bachelor' Star Chris Soules to Be Sentenced for 2017 Fatal Car Crash

Chris Soules is about to be sentenced.

The 37-year-old former Bachelor star will be sentenced for a deadly car crash this week, according to USA Today on Tuesday (May 21).

The judge denied a request to delay the sentencing on Friday (May 17) following the April 2017 car crash that killed 66-year-old man Kenny Mosher.

Chris was charged with a felony for leaving the scene of a deadly accident and pled guilty in 2018 to leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.

His attorneys requested a sentencing delay on Monday (May 20) citing Iowa state’s lack of response to a motion they filed for a presentence investigation report, which includes details about a defendant’s background and an assessment of the likelihood of reoffending. The report is meant to provide a judge with information that could be relevant to sentencing.

He faces up to two years in prison, and has the ability to withdraw his guilty plea if a judge doesn’t accept the plea agreement. He can also request a deferred judgment or suspended sentence, which would let him avoid prison and possibly remove the charge from his record.
