Unable to populate select list with correct values from array.

I am obviously very challenged with objects/arrays and am having another issue that I've tried about a thousand combinations to make work but still not working.

My goal is to populate a select list from a table column. I get very close but just can't get the syntax right no matter what I try.

Doing a var_dump of the data I'm trying to extract the values from I get this (which is expected):
array(11) { [0]=> object(stdClass)#625 (2) { ["group"]=> string(13) "payment_types" ["values"]=> string(32) "["Monthly","Bi-weekly","Weekly"]" } [1]=> object(stdClass)#626 (2) { ["group"]=> string(11) "drive_types" ["values"]=> string(77) "["Front Wheel Drive","Rear Wheel Drive","All Wheel Drive","Four Wheel Drive"]" } [2]=> object(stdClass)#627 (2) { ["group"]=> string(10) "warranties" ["values"]=> string(95) "["Remainder of Factory Warranty","Has Extended Warranty","Warranty is Available","No Warranty"]" } [3]=> object(stdClass)#628 (2) { ["group"]=> string(5) "gears" ["values"]=> string(82) "["3 Speed","4 Speed","5 Speed","6 Speed","7 Speed","8 Speed","9 Speed","10 Speed"]" } [4]=> object(stdClass)#629 (2) { ["group"]=> string(10) "fuel_types" ["values"]=> string(168) "{"Gasoline Fuel":"Gas","Diesel Fuel":"Diesel","Hybrid Fuel":"Hybrid","Flex Fuel Capability":"Flex Fuel Capable","Electric Fuel":"Electric","Propane Fuel":"Natural Gas"}" } [5]=> object(stdClass)#630 (2) { ["group"]=> string(18) "transmission_types" ["values"]=> string(40) "["Automatic","Manual","TipTronic","CVT"]" } [6]=> object(stdClass)#631 (2) { ["group"]=> string(6) "extras" ["values"]=> string(78) "["4x4","AWD","Turbo","Convertible","Cabriolet","Quattro","TDI","Supercharged"]" } [7]=> object(stdClass)#632 (2) { ["group"]=> string(9) "condition" ["values"]=> string(35) "["Excellent","Good","Fair","As Is"]" } [8]=> object(stdClass)#633 (2) { ["group"]=> string(10) "truck_cabs" ["values"]=> string(271) "["Regular Cab","Extended Cab","Crew Cab","--- Ford Specific ---","Super Cab","SuperCrew","--- Dodge Specific ---","Quad Cab","Mega Cab","--- Mazda Specific ---","Cab Plus","--- Nissan Specific ---","King Cab","--- Toyota Specific ---","Access Cab","Double Cab","CrewMax"]" } [9]=> object(stdClass)#634 (2) { ["group"]=> string(21) "vehicle_option_groups" ["values"]=> string(81) "["Comfort","Convenience","Entertainment","Safety","Exterior","Truck, Van & Jeep"]" } [10]=> object(stdClass)#635 (2) { ["group"]=> string(10) "passengers" ["values"]=> string(52) "["1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","10","11","12"]" } } 

The particular select list I'm trying to populate is for 'Passenger Capacity' which is the last in the dump.

When I do the following in an effort to populate my select list I get this as a result:

sample pic of select list
To get it to populate like the sample pic, the code I'm using is:
@foreach ($configuration as $passengers)
<option  value="{{ $passengers->values }}" > {{ $passengers->values }}</option>

Can you see what I should be doing to drill down to the passanger capacity values and input them into the select?

Thanks as always. I very much appreciate the help.
