Chase Rice Slams ‘Bachelor’ Producers After Run-In With Victoria Fuller: ‘I Was Really Pissed Off’

“I’ve known her for a little while now,” the “Eyes on You” singer, 34, revealed about Fuller, 25, during an interview with SiriusXM’s The Highway on Monday, January 27 — but he didn’t expect he’d be singing for her on her date with Peter Weber.

“I didn’t know any of that was going to happen,” Rice said. “I don’t want to be a part of that, you know? That’s not why — I’m going on there to promote [my music].”

When he did have to sing for the couple — which was teased in a promo of Monday’s episode — Rice wasn’t super comfortable. “Ya, it was a little weird. I’m not gonna lie. When she came I just started laughing,” the Florida native admitted. “Obviously I wasn’t happy at first. I tried to spin it positive. I’m going to move on and live my life and make it about the music.”

The radio hosts then asked about the musician’s new songs that were rumored to be about an ex, but he clarified they’re not about Fuller. “That’s not true at all, either,” Rice told the radio hosts. “Without throwing her under the bus, it’s about my ex-girlfriend.”

A few days prior, the country music star admitted in an interview on “Fitz and the Morning” that he was “really pissed off” after being “pretty surprised” to see Fuller during his Bachelor appearance.

“We spent a night together in Charlotte, she’s a cool chick, from what I know of her,” Rice said on the radio show on Friday, January 24. “You know, I got no problem with her. I got no problem with [Weber]. You know, I knew she was going on the show.”

The issue he had was that he was supposed to serenade Fuller while she was trying to romance the show’s lead, which he thought was strange. “The fact that they did that to me, it’s over the top. It’s unnecessary, I didn’t expect it,” he admitted. “But at the end of the day, it happened.”

“I don’t know if it’s the producers, or if they just got lucky,” he continued. “I know what I think, but I’ll let everybody else figure out what they think.”

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
