After Matt sent Anna home, he set his target on Victoria, 28.
While Katie warned Matt about “Queen” Victoria’s bullying, it was his conversation with newbie Ryan that persuaded the star to send Victoria home.

Fans have also applauded Katie for her openness both on and off the show.
On her 30th birthday, she uploaded a picture to Instagram and explained how she was taking more chances in life as she got older.
“Life really does pass by quickly. … I followed ‘the rules’ of life. Get the career. Save the money. Start that 401k. Buy the house. And for what? An entire decade to pass without feeling fulfilled?” she said.
“This past year, I finally unapologetically loved who I am. I lost people along the way. And that’s OK.”
