On January 6, a new cycle of The Bachelor franchise starts with a new start for Peter Weber. However, it seems that the protagonists in the ABC reality series are already playing a season finale. Less than a week before the premiere, both Weber and host Chris Harrison confirmed that Weber’s bachelor final ends in a non-traditional way. But will Weber be engaged towards the end of The Bachelor? Hold on tight, because this is gonna be a bumpy ride.
Chris Harrison says the end of Peter Weber’s ‘Bachelor’ ride is wild
On December 17, Good Morning America talked to Chris Harrison about Weber’s season of The Bachelor. And at the end of the interview, the Bachelor Nation host revealed why Peter Weber will be putting down a season “unlike any other.
“You really don’t know how it’s going to end,” Harrison said. “It’s possible it’s not over yet.”
Meanwhile, when Chris Harrison spoke to The Hollywood Reporter on January 2, he continued to tease the end of Weber’s season, indicating that Bachelor Nation will feel everything on the final night.
“It’s a wild, turbulent ending,” Chris Harrison said. “You won’t predict how this will come to a conclusion. It’s not one of those ends where you go, “Oh, this is it. 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’s a turbulent, wild, emotional, heartbreaking ride to the end. “
Chris Harrison then touched on the past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, which did not end in traditional engagements. For all those who don’t remember, Arie Luyendyk Jr. broke his agreement with Becca Kufrin to pursue Lauren Burnham, Colton Underwood left the show to continue dating Cassie Randolph outside the camera, and Hannah Brown ended things with Jed Wyatt after their Bachelor proposal.
So where does this leave Weber? Chris Harrison told the publication the new bachelor will also experience a “non-traditional season.
“If you even go back to Arie’s season, that’s an indication of what happened and what’s coming. I don’t think there will ever be a ‘traditional’ show again. I think those days are long gone,” said Chris Harrison, noting that he believed that “Bachelor Nation demands it”.
He went on to say, “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 December 30, the next bachelor shared himself confidently his season will not be spoiled before he is broadcast on ABC.
“There’s a reason why no one will discover the end and I’m very happy with how everything went,” Weber told People. “And I’m excited that everyone can adjust to this and have the first pristine season in a while. So it’s going to be okay. “
Subsequently, in an interview with Access on 2 January, Weber was asked whether he would pave his own way – like former bachelors and bachelors who didn’t end their season with an engagement – or continue with tradition. And Weber reiterated Harrison’s views on his Bachelor final, again teasing the season may not end with a traditional engagement.
“I, no doubt, my own way,” Weber said. “And I think every story, every love story has its own course and its own end. Mine is absolutely unique and really excited and confident that no one will discover the end. We’re going to experience 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
Before Weber and Harrison made their statements about the final of The Bachelor Season 24, the franchise’s spoiler expert, Reality Steve, revealed similar details about the end of the season on his podcast on December 5.
“I can say with as much certainty as possible that this season was not a normal end,” said Reality Steve about the final. However, the connoisseur of the Bachelor Nation also noted his uncertainty about Weber’s engagement status.
Then on January 2, Reality Steve announced an update, which did not involve Weber 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 the last Rose Ceremony Day,” Reality Steve wrote in his blog. “Doesn’t mean he won’t be through the ATFR or OP the ATFR. But what I do know is that there was no engagement on the last Rose Ceremony Day in Australia. ”
For the time being, Reality Steve’s insight into Weber’s involvement – or lack thereof – is not confirmed by The Bachelor. However, Weber and Harrison’s comments about the season finale certainly feel as if they are alluding to that end. Anyway, Bachelor Nation fans will just have to wait and see what happens next. So keep an eye on us.
