‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber Debunked 3 Theories About How the Finale Ends and Honestly, We’re Disappointed
In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult for The Bachelor franchise to keep spoilers from leaking, especially with the growth of social media and sleuths — such as Reality Steve — digging up dirt. Prior to season 24 premiere, Peter Weber promised fans his final pick would be unspoiled. Thus far, the 28-year-old pilot has kept his promise. So of course, Bachelor Nation fans have plenty of theories on how Weber’s finale ends. But in a recent interview, the 28-year-old pilot debunked three of the fandom’s most popular theories, including one involving The Bachelorette’s Hannah Brown.
‘The Bachelor’ fans want to know how Peter Weber’s finale ends
The start of The Bachelor Season 24 showed fans Weber’s journey will end in a conventional way. Before getting to know the women in the premiere, ABC aired a preview of what appears like the season’s grand finale, causing fans to wonder about Weber’s conclusion right off the bat.
“Before you do what you’re about to do, there is something you should know,” Chris Harrison tells Weber. The host also adds The Bachelor producers just found out about something big. “I’m not sure how this ends so I just wanted to give you a heads up.”
“Oh my god,” Weber gasps. He is then seen walking in the same outfit. A shot of a single rose is in the frame. Later, Weber — still wearing the same suit and tie — is holding an engagement ring. It seems likely the surprise happens before Weber proposes.
The preview jumps to a shot of Weber speaking with his parents. However, the scene is clearly filmed at another point in time. “Don’t let her go, don’t let her go. Bring her home to us,” Weber’s mom pleads in tears.
Clearly, The Bachelor team wants fans to know the season finale is one to watch. Everything they hint at before introductions are even aired shows the ending will be anything but ordinary.
Peter Weber addresses ‘Bachelor’ fan theories about Hannah Brown, pregnancies, and ending up single
Since The Bachelor premiere, Weber’s season has been marked by a few key moments — Brown’s emotional return, the animosity among the cast, and the bachelor’s open mind towards sex. And naturally, fans took these ideas and formulated their own theories about Weber’s Bachelor ending to fit the narrative.
Following Brown and Weber’s reunion in the premiere, most Bachelor Nation fans weren’t convinced the former flames were over each other. When the pair met up at the group date, all the emotions came flooding out. Weber also admitted he considered leaving The Bachelor for Brown at that moment. So it isn’t a surprise a popular theory about the finale involves Weber picking Brown at the end of his journey.
Meanwhile, some fans think Weber will get someone pregnant. The reigning bachelor has been associated with sex-positivity after learning he slept with Brown four times in a windmill. Weber’s promos have teased a few steamy scenes, which has a few fans wondering whether the producers are alluding to something like a pregnancy down the line.
Another popular theory about Weber’s finale involves the bachelor ending up alone and single. The current season has had plenty of drama, turning most of the contestants into villains. As such, many fans aren’t sure whether anyone will actually find love among his cast.
When speaking with Access in February 2020, Weber shared he has heard about all three of these Bachelor finale theories. The Delta pilot applauded the fandom for their creativity, even giving another take on the pregnancy speculations.
“I’ve heard that or two people might be pregnant. It’s like, oh one’s not enough, OK,” Weber said and laughed.
Nevertheless, Weber hinted none of the theories actually happen to him on The Bachelor.
“It’s hilarious. People are really good at speculating. I will say I haven’t heard the actual ending from anyone,” Weber said.
How does ‘The Bachelor’ Season 24 end? Peter Weber says his finale won’t be spoiled
Now, Weber has officially debunked a few popular fan theories. So how does his season actually end? Fans will just have to wait and see. As mentioned, Weber revealed The Bachelor Season 24 finale will remain unspoiled until it airs on ABC.
“There’s a reason no one’s going to find out the ending and I’m very happy with how everything turned out,” Weber told People in December 2019. “I am excited for everyone to tune in and have it be the first unspoiled season in a while. So it’s gonna be good.”
But even so, Weber ensured fans his season of the ABC reality series will live up the hype. “Lot of stuff happens. It has a crazy, crazy ending,” Weber said in the above interview with Access.
Weber also revealed he is in a good place now that filming has wrapped.
“It was a tough one, but I followed my heart the entire time,” Weber said. “I can say I am happy right now. I am in a very good spot and you’ll see in a couple more weeks.”
