The Bachelor 2020 just started and many women are standing out. However, only one -- OK two, if you count the omnipresent Hannah Brown -- met Bachelor Peter Weber before the show. When Kelley Flanagan walked out of the limo, Peter knew her right away. Was it fate?
Bachelor Peter and Kelley had met a month before The Bachelor at a hotel lobby, and actually visited the same hotel later on the first group date. During that same group date, Kelley was accused of cheating to get a solo flight with Peter. She was unbothered by the accusation, since she came for Peter, not to follow the rules. It worked. She got the group date rose. So will she win the final rose in the end?
More on that in a second. Short answer: No. Long answer: Mayyyyybe? We know Bachelor Peter does not have a "normal" ending and he didn't get engaged during the final rose ceremony in Australia. Not sure if he got engaged after the show or maybe he's now dating multiple people or doing something else. He bragged that his ending can't be spoiled, and so far Reality Steve doesn't have spoilers on how it turns out. For all we know, maybe Kelley does return after being dumped. But Peter does dump her at least once.
Peter couldn't remember some women he met 30 minutes later, but he knew Kelley right off. He was thrilled to see her. He told her he hadn't been able to stop thinking about her since they met in that hotel lobby, so it sounds like it was quite a meeting. He couldn't believe she was still single and mentioned that.
Peter and Kelley seemed to have chemistry. She seemed a lot more ... normal? ... than a lot of the emotional pageant girls of the cast. Then again, she did cheat during that obstacle course group date.
So how long does Kelley last with Peter? According to Reality Steve's spoilers, she lasts until the final six and is cut just before the final four of hometown dates. According to Steve, Bachelor Peter's final six are Hannah Ann Sluss, Kelley Flanagan, Madison Prewett, Victoria Fuller, Kelsey Weier, and Natasha Parker.
Kelley and Natasha are eliminated before hometowns. Kelsey is eliminated after hometowns, and drama-magnet Victoria F. is eliminated at final 3. Peter's final two are said to be Madison, who got the first date of the season, and Hannah Ann, who got the first impression rose and ends up involved in a lot of drama herself.
Kelley Flanagan posted about her Bachelor reunion with Peter Weber, so there are obviously no hard feelings:
Interestingly enough, Kelley was at the infamous Stagecoach festival last summer. If you watched Bachelor in Paradise 2019 you heard A LOT about Stagecoach. So I'm thinking if Kelley does not become The Bachelorette she will be on Bachelor in Paradise 2020. She'll probably go to Stagecoach again ahead of time too:
Since The Bachelor 2020 reportedly does not have a "normal" ending, maybe Kelley does come back for another chance with Peter and he takes it. I'm not saying that happens, especially if she's teasing "it's fate" on social media. That could be considered a spoiler if they were together. I'm on the He's With Hannah Brown Again train, for now, since I'm a Bachelor Nation conspiracy theorist. Then again, if his ending can't be spoiled, he can't have picked anyone, right? But he's happy with how things turned out, so it sounds like he did find love.
Stay tuned to see what happens as The Bachelor continues Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
