Leave it to former Bachelor Nick Viall to stir up something on social media — this time, it’s with Victoria Fuller and Greg Grippo’s recently outed relationship.
Although an official coupling has yet to be publicly announced by Victoria or Greg, the rumors have been spiraling since they were first spotted in Italy together just two weeks ago.
Since then, the two have been spotted on public transportation together, Greg was caught leaving a flirty comment on Victoria’s video, and it was even leaked that they announced their relationship during the recent filming of the Season 8 Bachelor in Paradise reunion.
While many fans are undoubtfully excited about the unexpected pairing, some may be left confused as Victoria currently seems as if she’s headed towards a proposal with Johnny DePhillipo on the current season of BIP.
Greg, who was seen as a top contender on Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette, has kept a low profile in the Bachelor franchise since ending his time on the show.
Although Bachelor Nation may have questions, former The Bachelor Nick Viall stepped in to do his part in answering them — including a “soft launch” of the lovebirds.
The Bachelor’s Nick Viall soft launches relationship between Greg Grippo and Victoria Fuller
On Sunday, Nick shared a TikTok of Greg and Victoria sitting at a table across from one of Bachelor in Paradise’s favorite couples, Serena Pitt and Joe Amabile.
The video clearly pans over to Greg and Victoria at the end, where Victoria is seen giving Greg a kiss on the cheek.
Although Nick announced it as a “game night” that “had all the drama,” he added in a reply to his own comments section that solidified his point in posting the clip.
He wrote the phrase “Soft launch” — a term used to describe a couple publicly announcing their relationship without saying it outright.
Although nothing may be fully announced until the Bachelor in Paradise reunion episode airs, it’s clear the franchise stars are having fun teasing Bachelor Nation with the topic.
Victoria Fuller’s relationship with Johnny DePhillipo on Bachelor in Paradise
Since this season of Bachelor in Paradise was filmed back in June, it’s somewhat inevitable that relationships are expected to change and potentially come to an end after the couples experience life in the “real world.”
However, for fans watching the show in real-time, it currently seems as if Victoria and Johnny are headed toward a proposal at the end of the season — especially after the two reconnected after “Split Week” and she gave her most recent rose to him.
It is Paradise, however, so obviously, things can change on a dime — something fans saw when Victoria went on a date with Alex and debated whether or not to pursue a relationship with him over Johnny.
With so much hanging in the balance, fans can tune in again this week to watch more drama unfold as both the finale and reunion episodes get closer to answering the remaining questions.
Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays & Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
