'Bachelor in Paradise' 2022 Finale: Johnny reveals his insecurities to Victoria, fans say he needs therapy'
VALLARTA, MEXICO: Johnny DePhillipo opens up about his insecurities and what keeps him from committing to Victoria Fuller in a recent episode of 'Bachelor in Paradise.' After hearing him share details about his life, many are concerned that he should consult with a professional about these issues.
Johnny and Victoria have decided to stay together. During their sit-down following the Rose Ceremony in the November 21 episode, she confirms that she sees life with him outside of paradise, but she wants to "make sure that's where you're at too." Johnny, who was earlier opposed to marriage, thinks Victoria has changed his mind. "When I met you, you kinda flipped my whole world upside down," he added. "It scares me because now, the more we hang out and the more I spend time with you, I really can't imagine life without you."
The couple clearly likes each other, but their conversation did not finish with any firm plans for their future, such as whether they would get engaged.
Later, Victoria and Johnny talk about their innermost fears in their Fantasy Suite. Victoria is terrified of being "abandoned," whilst Johnny says he despises "everything" about himself. "You are enough," she says. "When I'm telling you that I love you and that I've never felt this way about anybody ever, I wouldn't just say that to anybody." She believes he will be an excellent husband and father. "I've always been honest with you from the start: I want to be engaged, I want a family, I want all those things," Victoria continues. "Just because I didn't come in here with the intention of finding that doesn't mean I'm not ready. I'm 1,000 percent ready, and I see that with you."
"That's what scares me," Johnny says. "I feel like engagement and things like this, I don't ever know if you're ever ready."
Hearing Johnny open up in the Part 1 of the finale, fans feel, "Okay Johnny has some deep-rooted feelings about himself that should probably be talked about in therapy..." The fact that Johnny still doesn't seem ready for engagement after his stint on Season 19 of 'The Bachelorette,' a fan tweeted, "Johnny knew that this show ends with an engagement and wasn’t ready with Gabby and STILL decided to go on paradise." Some fans also feel he needs to sort out his own issues before committing to anyone, "Johnny really needs therapy… there are clearly issues he needs to work through." While another fan added, "I really didn’t like that clip of Johnny saying he felt like he HAD to propose. No engagement should start that way!"

Blaming Johnny for wasting Victoria's time, a fan wrote, "Johnny isn’t making sense.. he knew Victoria wanted to get engaged weeks ago, and he’s still saying that “it’s a big commitment”? He’s about to waste her time smh." Another Bachelor Nation fan added, "I don’t get it though … Johnny wasn’t ready for marriage on the bachelorette but goes on here sobbing about how he was the one not being enough for someone?????" Yet another fan said, "Dating Johnny and expecting an engagement is like eating cotton candy and expect nutrition." One fan also observed, "I think Johnny is more infatuated with Victoria than in love with her."
