At this point, Bachelor in Paradise fans will have to wait and see what happens to Victoria P. and James. But Bachelor Nation blogger Reality Steve already shared spoilers about Victoria P.’s time on the ABC reality series, and it doesn’t look like she ends up with James.

According to Reality Steve on June 30, Victoria P. had a boyfriend at home before she started dating on BIP. The contestant allegedly got called out for this and self-eliminated from the show.

“Victoria Paul (Peter’s season) was original cast,” Reality Steve wrote. “But was called out for having a boyfriend back home and ended up self eliminating before the first rose ceremony even happened, so she was the first one gone.”

As always, Bachelor in Paradise fans will have to watch James and Victoria P.’s love story unfold in season 7. But whether their journey matches up with the spoilers, we’re sure it’s going to be filled with drama. Stay tuned.
