Victoria Fuller has finally confirmed her relationship with Gregg Grippo.
During the “Bachelor in Paradise” reunion aired on Tuesday night, host Jesse Palmer asked Fuller about the romance rumors after the pair got flirty online.
“Yes, Greg and I are together,” she said before clarifying that she “absolutely did not” cheat on Johnny DePhillipo, whom she accepted a proposal from at the end of the reality series.
However, DePhillipo had a different take on the situation as he “still consider[s] talking to someone else while we’re working on our issues cheating or emotional cheating.”
After he left the stage, Grippo — who appeared in Katie Thurston’s season — joined his leading lady to clear the air.
“We’ve been friends for a while. We met last year through mutual friends,” Grippo, 29, said of his relationship with Fuller, adding that they started dating after the reality series ended.
“I was like, you know what, we’re at this moment where we’re really interested in one another and I was like, ‘I want to take you out for a drink,’” he continued. “So, you want to go to Rome in two days?”
Although the elaborate move may seem strange to some, the pair explained they chose to go on their first date overseas to avoid spoiling the show — which backfired when tourists snapped their picture abroad.
After failing to keep their romance hidden, they decided to go all out by getting matching “ciao” tattoos while in Italy.
“No one has to understand it or get it and that’s okay,” Fuller, also 29, said. “But everyone can hate us if they f—ing want.”
“I get it. I get it’s not the best look in the world,” Grippo said understandably.
Fuller competed on Season 24 of the “Bachelor” during Peter Weber’s season. Following her stint on the show, she dated former Bachelor Chris Soules before joining Season 8 of ABC spinoff series.
