People Think Queen Victoria Was Planted on 'The Bachelor' by ABC

From Good Housekeeping

  • People think Queen Victoria was planted on The Bachelor by producers.

  • J.P. Rosenbaum says "No way she’s just a random contestant."

Look, every season of The Bachelor has that one controversial contestant who is deeply committed to stirring up drama — but Queen Victoria (aka Victoria Larson) has taken it to a whole new level over at Nemacolin. To the point where fans are questioning whether she's an authentic contestant, or just someone ABC hired to fill a role on Matt James' season.

Even Bachelor Nation's very own J.P. Rosenbaum thinks Victoria was planted by producers.

"The more I think about it, the more I believe that Victoria was planted by the show/producers," he tweeted during the show on Monday night. "She just doesn’t seem to fit the mold. Her 'villain' traits don’t seemed authentic. Her presence, attitude, etc were so forced. No way she’s just a random contestant."

And this actually echoes what former Bachelor contestant Ashley Iaconetti said in this week's recap for Cosmopolitan. To quote!

"You guys…What. Is. Going. On? Is Victoria a hired actress? Seriously! I’m actually wondering about this. Because for someone who waltzed in calling herself a queen, I thought she’d have a sense of humor about herself, but nope, she has zippo! (For the record, during my involvement with the show and based on everything else I know, there has NEVER been such a thing as a hired plant.)"

ABC doesn't appear to have commented on speculation that they hired Victoria, but exec Robert Mills told Nick Viall that her whole "thing" is not an act, saying, “I think that the question is…why is she that way? There’s always a story for how somebody became that way.… I don’t know that you’ll learn more now on The Bachelor, but I’m very curious about it, so maybe it’s something we’ll have Chris ask about or on Paradise."
