She said yes! Victoria Fuller accepted Johnny DePhilippo‘s proposal during the season 8 finale of Bachelor in Paradiseand the duo left the beach engaged.

“You have completely changed my world and I never want to live another day without you. … You really became my best friend overnight,” Victoria, 29, said with tears in her eyes. “I’m totally in love with you.”

Johnny, 26, also got emotional before popping the question.

“I have never felt confident, I have never felt so safe. … But God has decided to bless me with something as special as you. I don’t know what I did to deserve this, but I feel like it’s fate,’ he began. ‘I’ve never felt this way about anyone. … No matter what happens in this life, I will be with you forever and ever. I will never leave your side, never. … I think every king has a mighty queen beside him and you are my queen, Victoria. That being said, Victoria Fuller, will you make me the happiest man and will you marry me?

Fans of Bachelor Nation were introduced to the Virginia Beach resident during their introduction Peter Webers‘s season of The Bachelor in 2020, and she was briefly linked to the main role of season 19 Chris Soules later that year. The ABC personality returned to the franchise during the second episode of BiP Season 8.

“Nobody’s that surprised I’m back here,” she teased when she got to the beach. “But here I am.”

Before connecting with Johnny who first appeared on Gabby Windey and Rachel Rechia‘s joint Bachelorette season, Victoria expressed an interest in the Season 17 alum Justin Glaze. The duo went on a date, but neither felt a spark.

The medical representative gave Johnny a rose before the contestants were separated and all the women left for another resort. While at the second location, Victoria bonded with Alex Boryukov – throwing a wrench in her relationship with Johnny.

“I go back to the beach hoping that Johnny is still Johnny and still likes me and wants to pursue things, but I’m bringing back this whole other element of, ‘Well, I kind of want to explore things.’ your face,” she told cameras before reuniting with the New Jersey native. “That’s fixed. I just don’t know what I want. I feel like I’m going to have to explain more to Johnny than he’s going to explain to me. ”

Tensions between the couple rose after Victoria confessed that Alex had “ticked a lot of boxes” for her as a potential partner. “When you left, you [told me]”Don’t talk to anyone,” Johnny fired back. “So do your thing, because of course you want to explore.”

In the end, the reality stars salvaged their romance on camera, but the drama continued off screen. A month before the finale aired, Victoria was spotted in Rome with Greg Grippo, sparking rumors that they were an item. When ZacharyReality claimed in October that it was “possible that the producers” sent the pair abroad “on purpose to cause a scandal” and more BiP‘s ratings before the season ended, Bachelor education Creator Mike Fleiss quickly stopped the speculation.

“That’s absurd! #BachelorInParadise,” he tweeted at the time.

While fans waited to see Victoria and Johnny’s relationship play out, she and Greg attended a dinner party with other Bachelor Nation alumni — and were caught kissing in a TikTok shared by Nick Viall. The podcast host teased alongside the Nov. 6 video, “Game night had all the drama.”
