Victoria Fuller Talks Spirituality, Saving Herself for Marriage, and Overcoming 'Shame'
Victoria Fuller stopped by the “Click Bait” podcast to chat with co-hosts Tayshia Adams, Joe Amabile, and Natasha Parker about the spiritual journey she’s been on since her time on “The Bachelor” Season 24 concluded in 2020.
The franchise star — who earned a spot among Peter Weber’s top four in the competition for his final rose but ultimately walked away single — said that her relationship with God has grown stronger since moving from her hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia, to Nashville last year.
“I have committed myself to the Lord, honey!” said Victoria, who is proudly part of a nondenominational Christian community in Music City.
The brunette beauty also noted that her newfound faith impacted her decision to remain abstinent until her wedding day. “She’s saving herself for marriage,” Victoria said, referring to herself in the third person.
Elsewhere, the stunning social media influencer shed light on her childhood experience with religion.
“I grew up so Catholic that everything I did was judged, or I always felt like I was doing something wrong. I never felt accepted,” she explained, adding that her new church is responsible for her improved perspective. “And then I was just opened to this world where God is so good, and he forgives.”
Victoria said that forming a meaningful connection with a higher power helped her overcome the “shame and guilt” she felt coming off of “The Bachelor.” As viewers will recall, her romance with Peter was put to the test several times — most notably, during a one-on-one date made uncomfortable due to a surprise performance given by her ex, country singer Chase Rice.
“Coming out of that was so hard for me,” Victoria recalled. “So, to find community and to know that the Lord really does love me and forgives me and there’s mercy and grace, that’s just everything to me now.”
Discussing her current dating life, the former medical sales rep said that it is imperative for potential suitors to share a similar belief system.
“It’s kind of funny because now my two biggest questions when I go on a date are, ‘What’s your relationship with the Lord?’ and, ‘What are your intentions?’” she said. “And, to me, that’s just everything at this point. So, it has changed. Before, I don’t think my relationships really revolved around that and, so now, it is interesting.”
