The Bachelor producers continue to cross every line. This time they booked country singer Chase Rice to perform a concert for Bachelor Pilot Pete and his date. The twist? Pete was on a date with contestant Victoria Fuller, who had dated Chase Rice.
Fuller didn’t immediately tell Pete that Rice was an ex, as they danced to his song and talked after the performance. Then after a one on one talk with Rice, Fuller decided it’d be best to be honest with Pete. After being shaken up at first about the news, Pete understood why she didn’t want to ruin the moment.
Rice, on the other hand, was mad at The Bachelor producers. He had no clue about the setup and wanted to go on the show to promote his music. He’d known Fuller was going to be a contestant so he’d expressed concern to his manager but his team assured him there’d be no way they’d do that to him. Well, they did and during an appearance on Fitz in the Morning he discussed the situation saying, “It’s over the top. It’s unnecessary. I didn’t expect it but at the end of the day, it happened.” Yikes.
The Bachelor has since announced that it will air two episodes next week on Monday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. on ABC. Fans are already ready for twice as much drama in one week.
