Victoria Fuller Reveals She & Chris Soules Have Split Up

Victoria Fuller and Chris Soules have called it quits.

Victoria, 26, confirmed that she and Chris, 38, had split during her interview on Nick Viall‘s The Viall Files podcast.

“I am just living my best life,” Victoria shared. “We went a separate direction, but I, like, respect him so much and I think he’s an amazing man. I just think that right now, I’m in such a different place than he is.”

Victoria and Chris first started dating in April after meeting through mutual friend and former The Bachelor contestant Kelsey Weier, who competed with Victoria on Peter Weber‘s season of the reality show.

Despite their long-distanced relationship – Chris lives in Iowa and Victoria lives in Virginia Beach – the two were able to make it work for four months.

“I’m not moving to Iowa anytime soon so I just want to focus on me,” Victoria continued. “It’s been so much about other people this year that I just really want to hone in on what I want to accomplish and what I want to get out of this year.”

Despite the breakup, Victoria and Chris are still in touch.

“I still talk to him all the time,” she explained. “I think he’s amazing. We are a lot alike, but I just want to focus on myself right now. I am not a farmer, but I know a lot about f–king corn now so there’s that.”

The Bachelor's Victoria Fuller Talks Dating Chris Soules, Says 'We're Really Happy'

Victoria Fuller is opening up for the first time about her relationship with Chris Soules.

“We’re really happy,” Victoria, 26, told People about her relationship with Chris, 38. “The last few months have been really special for us. We’re enjoying each other!”

Victoria and Chris have been dating for the past four months after meeting through mutual friend and former The Bachelor contestant Kelsey Weier, who competed with Victoria on Peter Weber‘s season of the reality show.

“She was like, ‘I think he’s single and he’s very attractive, you should talk to him,’” Victoria recalled. “He ended up texting me [in March], and we connected. Some people said he slid into my DMs, but he literally owns an iPhone 2 and can barely send out a text! But if he had, I would have responded.”

In early April, Victoria traveled to Chris‘ hometown of Arlington, Iowa so that they could meet for the first time. She currently lives in Virginia Beach.

“I think we were both really nervous,” Victoria said. “But it wasn’t awkward. It felt really natural. And immediately, I was like, ‘I really like him!’ I felt a genuine connection. And Iowa is so quiet — we were able to just focus on each other and enjoy each other’s company.”

“It’s nice to be able to share that commonality,” Victoria continued. “But Chris got to know me for me, not for what he saw on the show. And I’m grateful the way things ended on the show — it worked out!”

Victoria also mentioned that Chris is “a good one…He’s the best.”

The Bachelor's Chris Soules & Victoria Fuller Are Getting More Serious!

Former The Bachelor star Chris Soules is “exclusively dating” Victoria Fuller, who was a contestant on this year’s installment of the reality series.

The two stars have been quarantined together at his home in Iowa and now Us Weekly has reported that their relationship is getting more serious.

“She is still quarantining with him in Iowa,” the source told the outlet. “She drove to visit [a friend] who lives in Des Moines over Memorial Day weekend but is now back with Chris.”

Chris and Victoria haven’t made their relationship Instagram official yet, but she has shared several photos from inside his home during the quarantine.

Chris was the star of season 19 back in 2015 and he got engaged to Whitney Bischoff, but that relationship was short-lived.

Ben Higgins, who is one of Chris‘ longtime friends, says he was shocked by news of their relationship. He said, “Chris is a good buddy of mine. We’ve stayed friends and we’ve stayed in communication through his ups and downs and through my ups and downs. I will tell you this, he has not confirmed or denied to me as a friend if this is happening. … I don’t know her, but I’m shocked that it happened.”

Chris Harrison Explains That Controversial Choice on 'The Bachelor' Last Night

Chris Harrison is speaking to the backlash over The Bachelor producers’ decision to have all three finalists stay in the same hotel room – a move that hasn’t been done before on the show.

If you don’t know, the three finalists stayed in the same hotel room, seemingly to have Madison Prewett have to confront the other two women about their intimacy level with Peter.

Peter has trouble making decisions. I don’t know if you guys have noticed that,” Chris Harrison said on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast. “The king of kicking the can down the road. Heaven forbid you make a decision but, there are things that we do as producers that will force you into this uncomfortable zone and force you into making a decision. Sometimes we do it for your behalf, sometimes we do it for the Bachelor, the guys or the girls. And this situation was pretty extraordinary because Peter had kicked the can down the road, but this time also Madison had.”

“This was to force a situation that had to happen, and it had to happen this week because if we get to proposal week, then this guy is really screwed and there’s no chance this works. We gotta figure this out and there’s really only one way to do it. Yeah, it was tough love and it was really awkward and — again, as you know — in the history of the show, I don’t know if we’ve ever done this, but we decided to do it this week because these are conversations that needed to be had,” Chris added.

Chris continued, “It was because of, I think, the double standard in the things that Peter was gonna deal with. We kind of needed the women’s perspective on this. We needed Madison to face Victoria and Hannah Ann and have them express their emotions on this because, again, it’s just this guy and his perspective, and I don’t know if that’s the greatest thing right now.”

Here’s how fans reacted to The Bachelor‘s decision to have all the women stay in one location.

Peter Weber's Ex Merissa Pence Warns Him About Victoria Fuller on 'The Bachelor'

On the latest episode of The Bachelor, Peter Weber will be getting a visit from his ex-girlfriend Merissa Pence and she’s there with a warning.

Merissa appears on the show to reveal to Peter that she knows Victoria Fuller, one of his contestants, and she’s not a fan of her at all. While she was shown blurred out on the ABC series, she has been open about her identity with the press.

Merissa opened up to Us Weekly about how she became friends with Victoria while living in Virginia Beach.

“We became friends when I moved back from Los Angeles about three years ago,” she said. “Our first encounter was that she told me she was going to slash my tires because I was hanging out with one of her ex-boyfriends.”

“Virginia Beach is a pretty small town. As time went on, I became friends with a girl who was best friends with Victoria,” she added. “And so we all kind of started hanging out and it just became more of like a forced friendship versus like … I wouldn’t, like, voluntarily go hang out with her.”

Merissa was concerned when she found out that Victoria was going to be a contestant on The Bachelor and says she turned into a different person.

“Obviously I had my moment because I’m like, you could possibly be with my ex-boyfriend and that’s a little weird, but like, I never asked her not to go on the show or anything because that’s silly,” she said. “But we went out one night for our friend Audrey’s birthday and it turned into the Victoria Fuller show because it was three weeks out that she was about to leave for The Bachelor and she just became a very self-centered person and we were all out for our friend’s birthday and she was just acting crazy. Just wanting all the attention and it was very distasteful.”

Merissa believes that Victoria is putting on an act while appearing on The Bachelor.

“If there is a guy she wants, she’s like, ‘He’s mine.’ There is a one-way street there and nobody else is getting involved,” Merissa said in her Us interview. “She just thinks that the world revolves around her and she’s the hottest thing that’s ever hit this planet. And actually the most disturbing thing so far of all of this was the lingerie episode that she just acted like she was this coy person. The people in Virginia Beach are even seeing that that’s not you at all. You’re always the one in the bar wanting attention.”
