Bachelor Nation’s Heart Broke When Victoria F. Said ‘Kobe’ During Her One-On-One With Peter Weber

Victoria Fuller went on a one-on-one with Peter Weber last night. First, the two took a quick plane ride around Cleveland and then enjoyed the day at an empty amusement park. Before the date began, Victoria F. told the camera she was scared of heights so she was nervous for what was to come. But like she did during the fashion show group date, she powered through.

Chase Rice performs for Victoria F. and Peter Weber

After Weber and Victoria F. got their fill of park rides, the pilot (producers) surprised his contestant with a private Chase Rice concert. Of course, as Bachelor Nation knew thanks to last week’s previews, Victoria F. has a history with Rice. The two dated prior to the show. Victoria F. told Weber she broke things off because she didn’t enjoy Rice’s lifestyle.

Right now, Bachelor Nation is pretty split on Victoria F. Some fans are calling her a “liar,” and say she can’t be trusted, while others are rooting for her.

No matter how you feel about Victoria F., there was a scene that aired after the episode of the Virginia Beach native and Weber playing basketball. As Weber took a shot, Victoria F. let out a, “Kobe!”

Though the scene was filmed months ago, the utterance hit Bachelor viewers hard in the wake Kobe Bryant’s death.

How Bachelor Nation reacted to Victoria F. saying ‘Kobe’ when she was playing basketball with Peter Weber

“Aww Victoria you said Kobe while playing basketball with Peter, like that is not a coincidence,” wrote another.

“Anybody else tear up a lil bit when Victoria said Kobe at the end of the episode[?]” asked one fan.

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.
