According to the U.S. Sun, ABC’s “Bachelor” contestant Victoria Fuller was arrested on Aug. 25, 2017, for a DUI. After an alleged “boozy night out,” Fuller was detained at 6:45 a.m.
According to the Sun, court papers reveal she entered a guilty plea. She was supposed to spend one year behind bars. Instead, her sentence was suspended and she spent 24 months on probation. Fuller was also ordered to pay a $250 fine and court fees totaling $221, according to Page Six.
Drama in Fuller’s life started revealing itself as Season 24 of the show aired. During a group date, which aired on Feb. 4, Fuller stoked controversy after pictures unearthed of her modeling a logo reading “WLM.”
The “WLM” logo does not stand for “White Lives Matter,” or represent the group established in response to the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The “WLM” logo and coinciding “White Lives Matter” slogan Fuller modeled for is a parody label that promotes the conservation of billfish such as the white marlin.
On the Feb. 4 episode, ten women were surprised with a group photoshoot competing for the grand prize of being the cover model for Cosmopolitan’s March edition. Fuller secured the prize, but Cosmo yanked her from the cover after her controversial pictures were revealed.
In an earlier episode, Fuller was also forced to admit to Bachelor Peter Weber she had a relationship with country music artist Chase Rice. During a one-on-one date, Rice sang to Weber and Fuller, which stoked drama between the two.
Fuller’s appearance in Monday night’s episode was unsurprisingly controversial after she secured a place in Weber’s final three, despite being the only contestant to bypass the hometown meet and greet with her family. During Fuller’s hometown date, Merissa Pence, an acquaintance of Fuller’s and Weber’s ex, told him to be careful of Fuller because of her reputation as a home-wrecker and bad-faith actor.
“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,” Pence told US Weekly.
Pence also claimed Fuller puts on a facade for Weber and the reality TV show by acting coy.
“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,” Pence said.
In the upcoming week, Fuller will travel to Buenos Aires with fellow contestants Madison Prewett and Hannah Ann Sluss for a chance to win Weber’s final rose.
