Will Peter Weber Get Engaged? ‘The Bachelor’ and Chris Harrison Say the Finale Will Break Tradition
On Jan. 6, a new cycle of The Bachelor franchise begins with a fresh start for Peter Weber. However, it seems key players within the ABC reality series are already teasing season finale. Less than a week before the premiere, both Weber and host Chris Harrison confirmed Weber’s Bachelor finale will end in a non-traditional way. But will Weber get engaged by the end of The Bachelor? Hold on tight, because this is going to be a bumpy ride.
Chris Harrison says the end of Peter Weber’s ‘Bachelor’ ride is wild
On Dec. 17, Good Morning America spoke with Harrison about Weber’s season of The Bachelor. And at the end of the interview, the Bachelor Nation host revealed why Weber will deliver a season “unlike any other.”
“You truly aren’t gonna know how it’s going to end until the very end,” Harrison said. “It’s possible it’s still not over.”
Meanwhile, when speaking with The Hollywood Reporter on Jan. 2, Harrison continued to tease the ending of Weber’s season, hinting Bachelor Nation will feel everything on finale night.
“It’s a wild, turbulent ending,” Harrison said. “You won’t predict how this comes to a conclusion. 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.”
Harrison then touched on the past few seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, which did not end in traditional engagements. For anyone who doesn’t remember, Arie Luyendyk Jr. broke off his engagement with Becca Kufrin to pursue Lauren Burnham, Colton Underwood left the show to continue dating Cassie Randolph off-camera, and Hannah Brown ended things with Jed Wyatt after their Bachelorette proposal.
So where does this leave Weber? Harrison told the publication the new bachelor will also experience a “nontraditional season.”
“Going back even to Arie’s season, it’s an indication of what’s happened and what’s to come, which is: I don’t think there’s ever again going to be a ‘traditional’ show. I think those days are long gone,” Harrison said, noting his belief that “Bachelor Nation demands it.”
He continued: “The cast, they’re so wise and bright and dynamic and diverse, and I think society has pushed us to the point where those traditional days are long gone. People are going to speak their truth and live their truth. You’re going to see that — the good, the bad, the ugly — on the show now. That’s what the show is.”
Peter Weber teases his ending on ‘The Bachelor’
Now, Harrison isn’t the only one teasing Weber’s season finale. On Dec. 30, the next bachelor himself confidently shared his season won’t be spoiled before airing 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. “And 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.”
Then in an interview with Access on Jan. 2, Weber was asked whether he will be paving his own way — like past bachelor and bachelorettes who didn’t end their season with an engagement — or continue with tradition. And Weber echoed Harrison’s notions about his Bachelor finale, once again teasing the season may not end with a traditional engagement.
“I, without a doubt, pave my own way,” Weber said. “And I think, obviously, every story, every love story has its own course and it’s own ending. Mine is definitely unique and really excited and confident that no one’s gonna find out the ending. We’re going to live this journey with me and that’s the way it should be.”
Will Peter Weber get engaged on ‘The Bachelor’? Reality Steve spoils fans ahead of the premiere
[Spoiler alert: The Bachelor Season 24 finale.]
Before Weber and Harrison made their statements about The Bachelor Season 24 finale, the franchise’s spoiler expert, Reality Steve, already revealed similar details about the season’s end on his Dec. 5 podcast.
“I can say with about as much certainty as possible that this was not a normal ending this season,” Reality Steve said of the finale. However, the Bachelor Nation connoisseur also noted his uncertainty about Weber’s engagement status.
Then on Jan. 2, Reality Steve announced an update, sharing Weber didn’t get engaged in the season finale. However, he acknowledged the possibility of an engagement before or during After the Final Rose.
“Peter did not get engaged to anyone on final rose ceremony day,” Reality Steve wrote in his blog. “Doesn’t mean he won’t be by the ATFR or ON the ATFR. But what I do know is that there was no engagement on final rose ceremony day in Australia.”
For now, Reality Steve’s insight about Weber’s engagement — or lack thereof — isn’t confirmed by The Bachelor. However, Weber and Harrison’s remarks about the season finale certainly feel like they allude towards that ending. Regardless, Bachelor Nation fans will just have to wait and see what happens next. So stay tuned.
