Why Victoria Larson Never Stood A Chance On The Bachelor

Matt James' season of The Bachelor is as wild as it gets. There's Katie Thurston, who came in on night one armed with her vibrator. But before we judge a book by its cover, or a gal by her accessories, Katie has proven to be a one of the most compassionate, brave people on the season.

But not everyone on the season is as fab. There's Kit Keenan who grew up in New York City and told Matt that her life had been paved with "gold Bentleys and red carpets" thanks to fashion designer mom Cynthia Rowley. Relatable? Likely not.

And then there are the villains. There was Anna Redman who was responsible for starting the completely unacceptable rumors about fellow contestant Brittany Galvin, claiming she worked as an escort in Chicago. Well, Matt doesn't take any s**t and escorted (pun!) Anna out the door the moment he discovered she was the source.

That wasn't the only departure from that episode. The ultimate villain was none other than Victoria Larson. She was the queen of starting drama and honestly said some really rude things. So the truth is, she never really stood a chance on Matt's season.

Victoria thought her bullying was 'all in good fun'

From the get-go, Victoria Larson stood out on Matt James' season of The Bachelor, and not in the best ways. She was so notable for the drama and her snarky comments that Cosmopolitan literally published a list of all the people who tweeted, wondering if she was put on the season by producers to cause drama. Many wondered if she was actually a hired actress.

One person asked on Twitter: "This Victoria girl on The Bachelor is a plant right? Like... put there by the producers to cause chaos." That's not a great way to kick off a reality show geared toward finding love!

In fact, all that Victoria really was known for was the beef she had with so many of the other women on the season. Obviously, no one joins The Bachelor with the first goal being to make lots of friends, but it doesn't hurt to have a little peace in the house. After all, the contestants are all in it together and no one understands the struggle like everyone else there.

One other major reason Victoria never really stood a chance was that she didn't seem to understand the effect her words had on others. On Good Morning America in January 2021, she responded to bullying claims by saying it was "all in good fun." Um, it didn't seem that fun during the episodes. So all in all, maybe Victoria's departure from the season was best for everyone.
