Greg Grippo is begging fans to stop sending his family hate in the wake of his appearance on the “Bachelor in Paradise” reunion.
The âBacheloretteâ alum joined his new girlfriend, Victoria Fuller, for the special as she confirmed her split from fiancÃ© Johnny DePhillipo â and debuted matching tattoos.
âSend all the hate that you desire my way but please leave my mother and fam out of this,â Grippo wrote via Instagram Thursday morning.
âenjoy your thanksgiving.â
The post was shared just one day after Fuller spoke out about her failed relationship with her âBiPâ co-star.
âWhen you get called a âfâking câtâ in your relationship, itâs time to move on,â the reality star, who appeared on Peter Weberâs season of âThe Bachelor,â wrote on Instagram.
The reunion episode featured footage of Fullerâs romantic engagement to DePhillipo on the beach, before producers brought Grippo out on stage.
Katie Thurstonâs former suitor explained that he and Fuller had been âfriends for a while,â reconnected âweeks after âParadiseââ and then went out âfor a drinkâ in Rome, Italy.
When Fuller rolled up her sleeve to reveal their matching ink, Grippo chimed in, âWell thatâs â I guess weâre gonna do that.”
âIt says âciao,â itâs in Italian for âhi,’â he explained, while the rest of the âBiPâ cast gasped, unable to hide their shock.
âI get itâs not the best look in the world,â he said of their speedy relationship following the cheating allegations surrounding the pair.
Fuller chimed in, âEveryone can hate us if they fâking want.”
Fuller, for her part, claimed she and DePhillipo called off their engagement less than one month after “Bachelor In Paradise” filming wrapped.
However, her ex claimed they hadnât âofficiallyâ broken up until mid-September and were âin couples counseling before she went to Italyâ with Grippo the following month.
Fans were quick to take to social media to weigh in on the drama following the reunion.
âVictoria F and Greg Grippo acting like theyâre gonna last forever cuz they got tattoos? Did we just choose toÂ forget about Pete Davidson?!â one member of Bachelor Nation tweeted, referencing the âSaturday Night Liveâ alumâs former relationship with Kim Kardashian.
Another person joked, âWithout the episode tonight we would have never known ciao is Italian for hi, thank you Greg.”
