BACHELOR contestant Victoria Paul refused to let Peter Weber walk her out after being sent home from the show and fans immediately praised her for the “iconic” move.
The reality star, 27, found herself caught up in ongoing drama with former contestant Alayah Benavidez, 24, and when she checked-in with Pilot Pete, 28, about his feelings, the frontrunner was blindsided with rejection.
During the one-on-one sit down, ‘Victoria P.’ told the ABC leading man she could feel him pulling away from their relationship after the feud with her frenemy.
When the Delta pilot told her he was not as confident in their relationship as she was, the Louisiana nurse looked confused and asked: “I don’t understand, are you saying you don’t want me to be here?”
The handsome TV star looked upset when he shockingly responded to the blonde beauty: “I don’t know if I could see you as my wife. I’m so sorry.”
Victoria was so angered with her former hopeful-husband she made a quick exit immediately after and did not bother to wait until the rose ceremony later that week.
“This is the last conversation we’re going to have. This is not love,” she told Peter.
She began to cry and asked production of the show for a way out: ”Can I get a car? I just wanna leave.”
The LA native then asked the common question the lead’s of the show always ask when a contestant is sent home one-on-one: “Can I walk you out?”
The show’s tradition of the contestant obliging to a tearful goodbye outside by the car was broken when Victoria gave the surprisingly blunt answer: “No, I don’t need you to walk me out.”
Despite the rare refusal, the reality star followed his ex outside and thanked her for her time before he gave the final line that whoever she ends up with will “be so lucky.”
She proudly responded “I know” to the comment before she got into the car.
Bachelor Nation was pleasantly shocked and praised the former Miss Louisiana as a true “queen” for the move.
One fan tweeted: “I’ve never been a big fan of Victoria P., but at least someone finally said they don’t need the bachelor to walk them out. it’s pretty iconic if you ask me.”
“Victoria P! Yes girl!! I’ve been dyingggg for someone to say “no I don’t need you to walk me out.” She did NOT let him try to make himself feel better for dumping her. Goals girl,” a fan excitedly said.
Another supported exclaimed: “Victoria P. Had that break up attitude on pooiiinntttttt!! Like no don’t touch me, no don’t be sad for me, no I don’t need you to walk me out. B***h YESSSSS BIG ENERGY!”
“I don’t need you to walk me out” VICTORIA P WAS AN UNDER RATED RATIONAL QUEEN THIS SEASON #thebachelor “You’re gonna make someone so happy one day” “I know” Q.U.E.E.N. V.P.”
While someone else noted how long they have waited to hear a different answer to the age-old Bachelor question: “Hearing Victoria P say “I don’t need you to walk me out, Peter” is truly a dream comes true because I’ve been waiting 200 seasons for someone to say that.”
The Bachelor airs Mondays on ABC at 8pm EST.
