‘Bachelor’ Nation might do a double-take at this — one of the Victorias from this week’s premiere went quite a ways with Peter Weber … but probably not the one you thought.
The pilot stud was recently spotted hand-in-hand with contestant Victoria Fuller, who made her debut to the show during Monday night’s episode kicking off the 24th season, to mixed reviews. Welp, it looks like she stayed in the game long enough for hometowns.
TMZ obtained video taken from this past October showing Peter walking along with the 25-year-old Medical Sales Rep and former model. We’re told this was shot in Victoria’s stomping grounds of Virginia Beach … which means she was one of the last 4 girls.
Funny enough, a ton of fans seemed to think Victoria P would actually be one of the final four. It’s possible she still is, but we know for sure VF went the distance herself.
Now, in the clip, you see the pair walking their dog, whom we’re told is hers and is named Buxton. Later, you see them embracing in a kiss after a live band plays at a bar called The Shack. Clearly, VF left her mark … even though she comes with some controversy.
As soon as Monday’s episode aired, old modeling photos of Victoria F circulated … showin’ her rocking gear for a White Lives Matter campaign on behalf of the White Marlin Marina. Fact is … this White Lives Matter is designed to bring awareness to conservation of marlins.
It’s a pun-y line that was meant to be a joke, but obviously the slogan has raised eyebrows, and some have perceived her promoting such words as racist in and of itself.

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.

Victoria appears to have addressed some of these bad headlines, posting on Instagram back in November that the “rumors” about her were false … and that there’d be an appropriate time and place when she would address these things and properly defend herself.
In the meantime … kiss on, Petey Boy.
