Chase Rice slams Bachelor producers for having him perform for Peter Weber and his ex-girlfriend Victoria FullerJanuary 28, 2020
COUNTRY singer Chase Rice has slammed Bachelor producers for having him perform for his ex Victoria Fuller and Peter Weber.
Last night's episode had viewers in a tizzy when Peter surprised the 25-year-old with a private concert for their first one-on-one date, only to realise it was her former flame on stage ready to serenade them.
Reacting to the awkward situation, the country crooner, 34, explained that he and The Bachelor contestant spent one night together prior to her appearance on the ABC reality series.
Appearing on Fitz in the Morning radio show, he said: "We spent a night together in Charlotte, she’s a cool chick, from what I know of her.
"You know, I got no problem with her. I got no problem with him. You know, I knew she was going on the show."
Admitting he was pretty "p***ed off", Chase added that he believed that he was on the show to promote his new music, as many have done in previous seasons, but was left "pretty surprised" by the turn of events.
He continued: "I told my manager and my publicist, they were like, 'don't even worry about that, they're not going to do that to you, that's a weird coincidence, but they're not gonna — there’s no way they would do that to you.
"They've never brought somebody else in like that, surprised the guest on the show."
Reflecting on the run-in, Chase called it "unnecessary" and insisted that he never wanted to have anything to do "with the drama" of the show.
"So the fact they did that to me, it’s over the top, it’s unnecessary, I didn’t expect it," he continued on the radio show.
"But at the end of the day, it happened. I don’t know if it’s the producers, or if they just got lucky. I know what I think, but I’ll let everybody else figure out what they think."
He concluded: "I was just going on there to try to promote Lonely If You Are and Eyes on You and I wanted absolutely nothing — if there’s anything I ever wanted, it’s to have nothing to do with the drama of that show."
Chase's comments come after fans of the reality dating show were captivated by Victoria running into her former flame on her first one-on-one date with Peter.
After a fun day at the amusement park, Weber decided to surprise Fuller with their own private Chase Rice concert.
Peter begins: "I have a surprise for Victoria. We have our own private Chase Rice concert."
However the excitement soon turned to disbelief as Victoria clocked her ex on stage, who is singing to them as they walk onto a raised platform in the crowd.
Struggling with the series of events, the brunette noticeably keeps turning her away from the performance and holds onto Peter.
In a voiceover, the Virginia native said: "When we turn the corner, we see Chase, my ex-boyfriend. Nothing could be worse. I'm freaking out right now, freaking out. I want to die.
"[We] dated before the show. Oh my God, it's awkward. It's just weird you know.
"The situation is so uncomfortable, never in a million years was I expecting this but I'm trying my hardest to get through today because I don't want to ruin this."
In a state of shock, she pulled the musician aside to acknowledge how bizarre the situation was and vowed to tell Peter the truth about them.
Later in the evening during their dinner date, Victoria plucked up the courage to admit that she and Chase had dated, which left Peter at a loss for words.
Overwhelmed by the situation, the TV star told Peter "I can't do this" and walked away, leaving him stunned, asking "what?"
The drama of Victoria seeing her ex had fans taking to Twitter in their droves to share hilarious memes and tweets.
