Chris Harrison Says Peter Weber’s ‘Bachelor’ Drama is ‘Still Not Over’
As he does with every new season of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor In Paradise, Chris Harrison has said that Peter Weber’s upcoming quest for love is going to be wildly dramatic.
“It’s a wild ride for people. It’s a very wild ride. I was trying to think of a season I could go back and reference, kind of like Ben Higgins’ season, where it’s a guy who really wears his heart and emotions on his sleeve and is really good at compartmentalizing but almost too much,” Harrison told Entertainment Tonight on December 16.
The host continued: “So, where it really lends he has a tough time kind of just cutting the cord with people and things kind of linger. That makes it difficult as he kind of kicks the can down the road. You need some emotional roadblocks and things get pretty tough down the road.”
If that’s not enough to pique Bachelor Nation’s interest, almost every promotional video or image for Weber’s season tells viewers to “expect turbulence.”
Now, Harrison promised a dramatic season for Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette and he more than delivered there. So Bachelor fans are hopeful for another promising few months of drama.
Peter Weber’s face injury
We already know one bit of drama Bachelor Nation will be witness to during Weber’s season:
“Peter suffered a freak accident. He got a cut on his head, he did get stitches but he’s 100 percent OK and production is already back underway,” Harrison said of Weber’s “freak accident” when it occurred during filming. “He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of.”
Apparently, Weber was incredibly apologetic about his injury.
“This is why I love Peter, he immediately was apologetic about [the injury] and he felt so bad that he messed up the show and ruined our lives and ruined the franchise,” Harrison told ET, adding that it didn’t stop Weber from “diving into waterfalls and pools of water” on dates.
Chris Harrison had to show Peter Weber some tough love
“I had to stop being a friend and start showing some tough love. He needed a therapist. He needed to be helped,” he said. “It was a tough walk with him.”
“It was a really emotional, gut-wrenching season in ways that we haven’t seen in a really long time,” he continued. “It was just more of, ‘OK, I gotta quit being your buddy here and Papa Chris has to show up and now I need to treat you like I would one of my kids.'”
Peter Weber’s ongoing drama?
Harrison also gave an interesting quote to GMA that suggests Weber’s season drama spills past the last day of filming.
“You truly aren’t gonna know how it’s going to end until the very end,” he said.
“It’s possible,” he added, “it’s still not over.”
That sounds like some Jed-Wyatt-level drama.
Whatever it is, it seems like Weber might still be working out some drama that took place during his season. Hopefully, he has it all figured out by the finale.
