Greg Grippo first appeared on ABC’s The Bachelorette during Katie Thurston’s season. But he quickly re-entered the Bachelor Nation gossip grapevine when rumors circulated that Bachelor in Paradise season 8 star Victoria Fuller was cheating on Johnny DePhillipo with Greg.
Although Victoria and Johnny were still seemingly together over the summer of 2022, Zachary Reality tweeted in October that one season 8 couple had “already broken up.” Since Brandon Jones and Serene Russell are the only other duo who reportedly ends the show engaged, fans immediately pointed to Victoria and Johnny as the pair who could have split. Not only that, but comedian and Bachelor YouTube show host Dave Neal claimed Victoria had cheated on Johnny twice.
Once two fans alleged they had seen Victoria hanging out in Italy with Greg, speculation continued to swirl about their connection. The former Bachelorette contestant and Victoria have mutual friends: Justin Glaze, Andrew Spencer and Michael Allio, who appeared during season 8 of BiP alongside Victoria and Johnny.
So, fans are curious whether or not Greg is officially dating Victoria.
