Major Bachelor SPOILERS ahead from The Bachelor 2020, aka Bachelor Peter's The Bachelor Season 24.
The Bachelor 2020 just started and so far Peter Weber's journey has been all about Bachelorette Hannah Brown. Hannah B. returned at two different points during Bachelor Peter's premiere and fans were left wondering if she might show up again at the end. Well, Reality Steve finally piped up with new spoilers on that front, and they will delight some fans and upset others, depending on where you stand on the Peter Weber and Hannah Brown love story. That's if you believe the spoilers.
After all, Bachelor Peter bragged that his ending won't be spoiled. The Bachelor spoilers we do know revealed Peter's final two but said Peter didn't have a "normal ending." Pilot Pete didn't get engaged at the final rose ceremony, but Reality Steve didn't know what happened after that point. And Peter's season started with a flash-forward to the final rose ceremony with Chris Harrison showing up to tell Peter something.
Bachelor Fans wondered if Chris Harrison was giving Peter an update about Hannah Brown. Maybe Hannah B. wanted to contact Peter again for a second (or third) chance. Maybe he'd give her his wings again. A happy ending for the windmill couple.
On Thursday, Reality Steve updated with the new information he felt comfortable confirming. According to Steve, "Hannah Brown has nothing to do with the ending of this season." He said he knew some fans would still hold out hope and wonder how he could be so sure. To that, Steve said this:
That's the word from Reality Steve. That doesn't mean fans will believe him, especially if they don't want to believe it. There's also the fact that Steve doesn't have details yet on how Bachelor Peter's season did end and who Peter is with now. Steve does think Peter is with someone, and Peter did say he was happy with how things turned out. Did he get engaged after the show ended? Is he just dating someone? That remains unspoiled as of now.
Was Jimmy Kimmel right? Kimmel was the first to get the spoilers right for Hannah Brown's own Bachelorette season, even before Reality Steve changed his spoilers to Jed over Tyler. Peter Weber was recently on Kimmel, and Jimmy "predicted" Bachelor Peter is now with Hannah Ann Sluss.
Hannah Ann Sluss is one of the final two ladies already spoiled by Reality Steve. The other is Madison Prewett. (Tiffany Haddish was a guest on Kimmel and said she thinks Peter picked Madison.)
It's possible Jimmy is right about Hannah Ann. Or maybe Bachelor Peter is now with Madison. Whatever the case, Peter and Chris Harrison have been talking up the finale as being unpredictable, and even heartbreaking.
It sounds like the news Chris Harrison brings Peter Weber in the end is "gut-wrenching" and must change things enough that he doesn't propose, even though the preview showed him with an engagement ring. One of the few things Steve does know is that Bachelor Peter's season doesn't have a normal ending and Peter did not get engaged on final rose ceremony day in Australia. That's not to say he isn't engaged now ... he's just supposedly not with Hannah Brown.
We knew Hannah Brown couldn't show up in at Bachelor Peter's final rose ceremony because she was taping Dancing With the Stars live in L.A. while Peter was in Australia. But this may put the kibosh on any hopes that Hannah B. reached out to Bachelor production and Peter decided to take a chance with her.
What do you think about this? Are you relieved that Hannah Brown leaves the story after this coming episode? Sad that Hannah B. and Peter apparently weren't meant to be? Irritated that Hannah Brown showed up at all if it wasn't to be a real part of this love story? Sad for Peter's other ladies that he wasn't really over Hannah Brown as much as he said he was if he even considered having her on The Bachelor?
The Bachelor Season 24 continues Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. There's a strange new Bachelor spinoff coming to air right after Bachelor Peter's finale, instead of the usual Dancing With the Stars spring season. This new spinoff will bridge The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and then whoever is the 2020 Bachelorette will see her season followed by Bachelor in Paradise 2020. There is no escape from Bachelor Nation.
