‘The Bachelor’: Two Episodes to Air Next Week
This season of The Bachelor has been absolute pandemonium and not in a good way. Usually, a little drama on The Bachelor is great. It keeps the show moving along and is a great reprieve from all of the heavy, emotional conversations that take place between the lead and the contestants.
But this season, the drama has gotten out of hand. Peter Weber’s women seem to be able to take the smallest things and turn them into WWIII. It’s gotten so bad that even the women on the show are fed up with it.
So, what does ABC decide to do amid all of the drama? Give us more of it. Next week, we will be getting two episodes of The Bachelor. That’s four hours of drama.
When will the episodes air?
Of course, we will be getting our normal airing of The Bachelor on Monday at 8 p.m. ET. The extra episode will air on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET as well.
What happens this week?
So, last week, we left off with Weber bringing Alayah Benavidez back on the show and giving her the group date rose. The women basically revolted and told Weber that they were disappointed with how much time he was giving the women who were causing drama and how he basically ignored everyone else.
In addition to this, Benavidez revealed that Victoria Paul might have been lying to Weber about not really knowing her before going on the show.
Cut to this week, where the women will be in South America. According to previews, this will be the week where we see Weber’s golf cart accident in Costa Rica that was reported back in October.
“He did get stitches but he’s 100 percent OK and production is already back underway,” host Chris Harrison told Entertainment Tonight following the accident. “He’s still the dashing, handsome pilot we’ve all dreamed of.”
“There was a ton of blood. It looked like a murder scene when it happened,” Weber told the outelt. It just started pouring out.”
“My forehead was literally split open,” he continued.
More than anything, his appearance just shocked the women.
“I walk up and I see them for the first time and they were just like, ‘Oh. OMG, what happened?’ I told them some crazy story like I fought a puma off in the jungle to kind of like make it sound better.”
But the accident did end up actually helping Weber’s relationships move along.
“It kind of does play a role in a little bit later on in the season,” the pilot said. “I’m not gonna spoil it, but it’s actually kind of cool. The girls took care of me. They definitely kind of felt bad about it, but I wasn’t gonna let this slow down my journey to find what I really wanted and it’s all good. I got a battle scar now.”
In addition to seeing this accident play out, we’ll also get to see if Weber is able to steer this season back on course and convince the women that he is serious about finding love and won’t be distracted by the drama.
