‘The Bachelor’: Could Peter Weber’s Season be the First without Spoilers?

The next season of The Bachelor is right around the corner, folks. As fans of the franchise know, spoilers are usually abundant when it comes to The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise. Few people are actually able to make it to the end of the season without knowing who wins beforehand. But according to Peter Weber, his season may be different from all of the others.

Does Hannah Brown compete on this season?

We first met Weber when he was competing for the affections of Hannah Brown on her season of The Bachelorette. He made it to the top three of her season before being sent home. Now, previews of The Bachelor have teased Brown’s return, which means that Weber might still be carrying a torch for her.

“I thought that I was pretty much completely over her,” Weber told The Hollywood Reporter. “I wouldn’t have taken the opportunity to be the Bachelor if I wasn’t. It wouldn’t be fair for me or fair for all of the women that I would end up meeting. I really did think that I was doing good. Some time had passed, obviously not that much, but I had a really good support system with my family and friends. I tried my best to close that book and just leave that in the past. Obviously, stuff with this season [with Brown’s return] was very unexpected for me as well. I just try to navigate that as best as possible. Feelings obviously came back. But I guess the short answer is that I thought I was over her at that point, otherwise I wouldn’t have taken The Bachelor opportunity.”

And after seeing her again at the Bachelor mansion, Weber was hoping things could pick back up between them.

“That first night [when Brown steps] out of the limo, that was a complete surprise to me and wasn’t expected at all,” he said. “I remember when she walked out. At first, I didn’t know it was her. And then when I realized who it was, I was just jaw-dropped; I couldn’t believe it. When she was walking up, I had no idea why she was there. 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. You guys will have to watch and see what happens after that.”

Will this season be spoiler-less?

In recent interviews, host Chris Harrison has revealed that Weber’s season doesn’t end like past ones traditionally have. But Weber doesn’t think anyone will be able to figure out the ending before it airs.

“I’m really excited for this season because I’m very confident that no one is going to be able to spoil it,” the pilot told the outlet. “There’s a reason I believe that — and obviously I can’t say it, otherwise it gives it away. 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. 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. 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.”
