No One Will Guess ‘The Bachelor’ Ending, According To Peter Weber
The past season of The Bachelorette was tension-filled. Yes, you can expect that from a reality show like this. However, Hannah Brown’s season had a lot going on. From Luke P.’s consistently negative religious beliefs to Jed Wyatt’s lying — which Brown found out about after the fact — Brown’s season was pure drama. And her outcome was different than most. Now, Peter Weber is saying that his own finale of The Bachelor won’t be conventional either. He bets that no one will guess how it ends.
Peter Weber does not think fans will crack his ending
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Jan. 3, Weber shared that he’s “very confident” no one will spoil his ending. “There’s a reason I believe that, and obviously can’t say it otherwise it gives it away,” he said. “I’m very confident that Reality Steve and all of these people, they’re not going to find out what happens — there’s no way they’re going to find out.” Spoilers for The Bachelor and its spin-offs are common since the seasons are filmed ahead of time and involve a large group of people. Even though The Bachelor’s production company sued Reality Steve in the past, it hasn’t stopped the site from breaking more spoilers.
“And I’m very excited about that because I think that’s what this show has wanted for a while, and I’m excited that for my season there’s a really good chance that happens,” Weber continued about his supposedly spoiler-free ending. “And I’m excited for everyone to just come along for the journey and not know what happens at the end, and just be able to live it out with me.”
Chris Harrison agreed that it’s a different ending than usual
The more recent tradition of unusual finishes started with Colton Underwood’s non-engagement finale in Season 23 of The Bachelor. The Bachelorette followed with Brown’s engagement getting called off before the After The Final Rose episode of her finale. It’s no surprise that Weber’s ending might follow a similar, non-traditional finish. And host Chris Harrison also agreed it’s “wild” and “turbulent.”
“You won’t predict how this comes to a conclusion,” Harrison told The Hollywood Reporter on Jan. 2. “It’s not one of those endings where you go, ‘Oh, this is the one. And this is this great, crazy long love story and she’s always been the one since the beginning. And it’s so simple and beautiful.’ It’s a wild ride. It is a turbulent, wild, emotional, gut-wrenching ride right up until the very end.” With the appearance of Brown, that takes on a whole new meaning.
Brown’s appearance on Weber’s first episode surprised him
Brown, who was competing on Dancing With The Stars at the time of filming, showed up on Night 1 of Weber’s Bachelor season. At first, it was just to give back the wings Weber gifted her on her season of The Bachelorette. “Before she came, before that first night, in my mind, I was over Hannah,” he told Us Magazine. “I wouldn’t have taken this opportunity if I wasn’t. .. after I saw her that first night, I may have questioned if I was over her.” He was definitely blindsided by Brown showing up, which added even more raw emotion to their talk at the end of the first episode.
“I think a little bit of me was hoping she was going to try to come back to the house, or ask if she could join that first night and just see where it goes — if I’m being completely honest,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “You guys will have to watch and see what happens after that.” Brown and Weber shared a lot of emotion and regrets at the end. He told the publication that those feelings were real and leftover from their romance on her season.
With that final scene ending in a “To be continued,” and the tear-filled promo for next week, get ready for a “wild” season, indeed.
