What's going on with Victoria Fuller and Chris Soules? That's the question Bachelor Nation is asking.

The pair sparked romance rumors on Wednesday after multiple outlets reported the two are hanging out. RealitySteve was first to stir speculation after sharing the following tweet. 

"(EXCLUSIVE): One of the more random Bachelor 'couples' that I can't say I ever would've guessed," the tweet stated. "I don't know how long this has been going on or how serious it is, but I can confirm that Victoria Fuller is currently together in Iowa for the week with Chris Soules. Discuss." 

Us Weekly also reported the farmer from Iowa and the medical sales representative from Virginia started hanging out after connecting on social media.

"Chris slid into Victoria's DMs," a source told the celebrity news outlet. "He apparently DMs a lot of people."

But that's not all. According to Us Weekly, social media sleuths noticed Fuller and Soules began following each other on social media earlier this month.

However, neither reality TV star has commented on the rumors.

Stars Who Love (or Hate) The Bachelor

Fans met Soules in 2014 during Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette. He then went on to hand out the roses on season 19 of The Bachelor. He proposed to Whitney Bischoff; however, they ended their engagement in 2015. He also appeared on Dancing With the Stars.

Soules was then arrested in 2017 following a car crash in Iowa. At the time, the Iowa State Patrol confirmed to E! News Soules was driving a pickup truck that rear-ended Kenneth Mosher's tractor trailer. Soules was accused of leaving the scene of the accident prior to law enforcement's arrival and was arrested at his home in Arlington. After the crash, Mosher was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

In 2018, Soules entered a conditional guilty plea to leaving the scene of an accident resulting in serious injury. In 2019, he accepted a suspended two-year prison sentence to serve two years on probation. He also reached a $2.5 million settlement with the victim's family.

She issued an apology.
