Victory currently lives in a small town outside of Pittsburgh called Latrobe.

On top of that, the banana split was also invented in Latrobe.

4. She Sings In Seven Languages
Being able to sing as well as Victory does in just one language is amazing, but what’s even more incredible is the fact that she can sing in six other languages. Unfortunately, her website doesn’t specifically list all of the other languages she can sing in, but we know that she also sings in German and Korean.
