SPOILERS ahead from The Bachelor 2020, aka The Bachelor Season 24 with pilot Peter Weber.
He did it! Bachelor Peter Weber -- Pilot Pete, Pete of the windmill sex we will hear about constantly -- is finished filming The Bachelor 2020. Apparently the 2020 season was "insane" and Peter's dog now has all of the spoilers on who Papa Pete picked and may (or may not) be engaged to right now. We'll dig into things in a minute, but first check out this traumatized-looking dog:
Bless his little heart. Bachelor Peter did have an insane journey right out of the gate for The Bachelor Season 24, which premiered Monday, January 6, 2020 on ABC. Pete had to cancel a date, reportedly from food poisoning (or not, apparently it was really from Hannah Brown), and had a bizarre freak accident on a golf course that left him with stitches. The Bachelorette Season 15 alum also had a lot of drama with his Bachelor contestants, which is always the case for every rose-giver.
Apparently this season there was a lot of pageant drama, and also nicknames -- a group of girls in the house called themselves "The Cats" and called the women they didn't like "The Rats." [The deepest of deep sighs.]
That's the scoop from spoiler guru Reality Steve, who updated fans throughout filming, per usual. As of January 2020, he still doesn't have a solid spoiler on who Peter picked as the winner for Bachelor 2020 -- and it sounds like Peter's finale can't be spoiled in advance -- but Steve did give us the final two.
We already knew the final four were Victoria Fuller, Madison Prewett, Hannah Sluss, and Kelsey Weier. (Kelley of the pre-season hotel meet-up was cut before that point.) Steve later updated to say Kelsey was eliminated after hometowns, with the remaining final three -- Hannah, Madison, and Victoria -- heading to Australia for the finale.
We also knew Victoria F. was involved in some drama with her ex-boyfriend, musician and Survivor alum Chase Rice, who was brought on the show as the musical performer during one of her one-on-one dates with Bachelor Peter.
Apparently Victoria F. has a lot of drama this season. Her past seems to become a storyline on the show, per Steve, with people who knew Victoria being trotted out to call her a liar, a manipulator, even a home-wrecker. So it becomes a question of whether Peter will pick the woman with the past or not.
Well, Victoria F. is already unhappy with how she's being portrayed, even before the show airs, and she doesn't seem to get along with Reality Steve either. This season may be hard for her to watch. Steve updated in one of his posts to say Victoria does not "win" the season.
If Victoria is out, that means we have our final two:
Madison Prewett & Hannah Ann Sluss
According to Reality Steve, both Madison, shown in the left photo, and Hannah are 23 (Peter is 28) and they are both former pageant girls. Madi is from Birmingham, Alabama and Hannah S. is from Knoxville, Tennessee.
Hannah Sluss got the first impression rose, and there's something of a curse attached to that rose. The Bachelor has yet to pick his first impression rose winner in the end. In that case, Madison would have the edge as Bachelor Peter's Chosen One/possible current fiancée. (UPDATE: We're now close to the end and the spoilers have been updated, especially when it comes to Madison.)
Hannah S. is actually friends with Hannah Godwin of Bachelor Colton Underwood's 2019 season. Hannah G. just got engaged on Bachelor in Paradise 2019. Both Hannahs are models together, and Hannah S. is a pageant alum like the most recent Bachelorette Hannah Brown. So if Bachelor Pete does not pick Hannah S., I wouldn't be shocked if we see her as The Bachelorette 2020. The Hannah train may just keep rolling. Or not. We'll see.
Stay tuned for any official finale updates, along with the usual episode-by-episode spoilers that always make The Bachelor more fun to watch. Things could change at any time, but that's part of the "journey." Peter, ladies, Chris Harrison, when you're ready...
