Queen Victoria is spilling the tea. We mean, of course, Bachelor contestant Victoria Larson, who earned the nickname when she rolled up to Matt James’ season wearing a tiara. Victoria may not have won Matt’s heart, but she’s got some thoughts about who did.
As fans know, Matt chose Rachael Kirkconnell as his winner, although he didn’t propose. The two later broke up after allegations of racism were leveled against Rachael. From Victoria’s viewpoint, she just didn’t see Rachael winning.
“My brain couldn’t wrap around it,” she said on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast (via Us Weekly). “I knew Michelle [Young] would make it pretty far. And then in hindsight, I’m like, ‘OK, not surprised Rachael won because they did have a strong connection, but I really thought Bri [Springs] was going to.'” Victoria was so convinced that “Bri was winning” when she left the show that she “did not believe anyone for like a month” when they told her Matt had picked Rachael.
Victoria Larson admitted she wasn't that into Matt James
“I’m like, ‘No, Bri won, like, I think you got it wrong,'” Us Weekly quoted Victoria. “There’s no way Rachael’s winning.’ I just thought his and Bri’s connection was strong.”
As for her own connection with Matt, Victoria said that she knew right off the bat that there was nothing special there, which is why she didn’t take the competition “seriously.” She explained, “I didn’t personally have, like, that romantic spark or that, like, physical chemistry. Like, I didn’t feel it. So I was just like, ‘OK, let’s bring the queen. Like, let’s just have fun with it. That’s kind of how it was for me.”
Victoria also discussed her past arrest, which caused a controversy when her mugshot was released during the airing of Matt’s season. Per People, she was arrested several years ago after stealing $250 worth of goods from a Florida Publix. “I wasn’t that embarrassed by it,” she said on the podcast, adding, “It’s like, ‘OK, when I was 19 — who hasn’t stolen some beer and makeup?'”
