There’s trouble in paradise.
Victoria Paul was taken aback by the look of her new “Bachelor in Paradise” promo photo Thursday and felt compelled to share an unfiltered pic to counter the glossy image.
“what filter is this @bachelorinparadise ????,” the 28-year-old wrote on Instagram by a touched-up photo of the reality star. She then posted a raw photo straight from her phone, with un-styled hair and free of digital airbrushing.
“we love some honest transparency,” wrote one fan in her comment section, with another adding, “we all had this thought you’re so gorgeous.”

“Bachelor in Paradise” Season 7 premieres Monday on ABC. Following Chris Harrison’s exit, it was announced that David Spade will step in as his replacement host, sharing the duties with other stars, including Tituss Burgess, Lil Jon and Lance Bass, throughout the season.
The cast will include 19 single “Bachelor” franchise alums, with surprise guests expected to make appearances throughout filming.
Paul was featured on Season 24 of “The Bachelor” with Peter Weber.
During her season, she and fellow contestant Alayah Benavidez initially pretended not to have known each other before the show. After piquing the rest of the women’s suspicions, Paul came clean to Weber.
“It’s difficult for me to be in this position, but I know she asked me to not tell producers that we knew each other. … Looking back, she did ask me to lie and that’s not who I am,” she told Weber. “Coming into this, she was really looking forward to all the opportunities to come from this even if you weren’t her husband.”
Weber passed on both women, proposing to Hannah Ann Sluss in the finale.
