It seemed like Rice and Fuller couldn’t stop looking at each other. It also seemed like Fuller had a fleeting look of regret. Does she want him back? When Rice saw Fuller, he looked a bit bothered when he saw her with another man. There was a lot of nervous smiling throughout his performance. There was also a lot of eye contact between the two. When Fuller stopped to talk to Rice, he seemed like he was still pained by the breakup. However, he did give her advice. He told her to just do what she thought was best for her.

During their one-on-one date, Fuller revealed to Weber that she and Rice used to date. During her conversation with Weber, Fuller seemed very emotional when talking about Rice. Her face completely changed, and she started crying. At one point, Fuller even got up and walked away from the table.

Judging from Fuller’s emotional reaction, it’s possible she might still have some feelings for her ex-boyfriend. When Weber asked Fuller if she still had feelings for Rice, she said she didn’t. However, people who are completely over an ex don’t usually have such a big reaction.   

Why did Victoria Fuller and Chase Rice break up?

According to Fuller, she broke things off because their lifestyles were too different. During an interview with “Fitz in the Morning,” Rice said he doesn’t have any hard feelings when it comes to Fuller. “We spent a night together in Charlotte,” Rice said. “She’s a cool chick, from what I know of her. You know, I got no problem with her.”

Rice told “Entertainment Tonight” he wasn’t pleased with how things turned out. He said he felt the producers were just trying to have drama play out between him and Fuller so they could get a good episode out of it. “I’m like, ‘You guys are gonna try to make it about some drama.’ I’m not cool with that,” said Rice. “I’m gonna make it about the music and turn it back to the songs, and that’s why I’m dropping “The Album Part I” then.”

Will Rice watch “The Bachelor” season 24? He told ET he doesn’t plan on watching this season. However, he is curious to see the episode he appeared in so he can take a look at how he was portrayed. “I’m not watching the season, but I gotta watch that one [episode] just to see how it all plays out. Lord knows I’m a little nervous,” Rice told the news outlet. “At the end of the day, I didn’t do a damn thing wrong. I was just trying to play music.”
