Chase Rice on Being Thrown Under the Bus on Upcoming “The Bachelor” Appearance: “I Have Zero Desire to Be Part of Some BS Reality TV Drama”

Chase Rice will release his new seven-song project, The Album Part 1, on Jan. 24. The newly revealed release date coincides with Chase’s upcoming appearance on ABC’s The Bachelor on Jan. 27.

Cue the dramatic music.

Apparently, one of the show’s contestants, Victoria F., previously dated Chase. During the upcoming episode, bachelor Peter surprises Victoria F. by taking her to Chase’s concert. The show’s upcoming preview suggests drama ensues as this occurrence was a shock to Chase, Victoria F. and Peter.

Chase called in to The Ty Bentli Show this week and revealed he’s dropping his new album on Jan. 24 in the hope that the Bachelor exposure boosts sales, even though he’s not thrilled with how the show threw him “under the bus.”

“The thing is, I knew [Victoria F.] was going to be on the show going into the very beginning of it, and we talked about it,” says Chase. “We were just like, ‘You know what? They’re not going to do that. There’s no way. They’re not going to involve me in the storyline.’ And sure enough, we underestimated them.

“It just seemed really unnecessary to be honest. I mean, it’s never happened before where one of the guests of the show gets involved, and I don’t believe that was a coincidence. I’m just going to be straight up, I can’t point the blame to anybody, but that’s why I twisted it to the music, because I mean, when [Peter and Victoria F.] turned the corner, obviously I’m the surprise for the date, and it’s just weird. But when I thought about it, I was like, ‘Okay, they’re going to throw me under the bus.’ I wanted to make it about the music. That’s why I dropped the album now. It’s like, ‘All right, if they’re going to do that, I’m going to put out The Album Part 1 and hopefully by the end of week, thank them for a number one album.’

“I have zero desire to be part of some BS reality TV drama. I could care less about that. This was not a coincidence. I put the album out on purpose right now. Then hopefully at the end of the week, I can be like, ‘Hey, thanks y’all for the BS drama. I got a number one album.’ That’s all I care about.”

Tune in to The Ty Bentli Show on Jan. 24 to hear Chase’s entire interview.
