SPOILERS ahead from The Bachelor 2020, aka Bachelor Peter's Season 24.
I came up with a whole list of ways Bachelor Peter Weber's mysterious finale could end, but one idea I did not include was The Bachelor 2020 star getting one of the women pregnant. My brain just wasn't on the soap opera track enough, but plenty of fans are out there floating the theory. And you know what? After four times in a windmill with Hannah Brown on The Bachelorette and all the sex talk so far in The Bachelor previews, it wouldn't shock me. It would be quite a change from virgin Bachelor Colton Underwood too. But it's just a theory.
Normally we know more about a Bachelor finale than we do now, two weeks into Peter Weber's Season 24. Spoilers have pointed to Bachelor Peter having an abnormal ending, with no engagement in the season finale. So far, Reality Steve only knows his final two, and the idea that Peter is meant to be with one of them right now, engaged after the show or not. That has left the speculation door wide open.
Spoiler guru Steve said Hannah Brown does not return, even though that would've been my #1 guess. So now other wild theories are flying around, including the idea that Bachelor Peter got one of the women he wasn't going to pick pregnant:
There are a lot of similar tweets and comments out there, especially after the promo that aired after The Bachelor Season 24's January 13 episode. (Watch the preview below.)
That's not to say it's a spoiler that Bachelor Peter got someone pregnant. That's total speculation. The spoilers we know, or think we know, are Bachelor Peter's final two: Hannah Ann Sluss and Madison Prewett. We also know Jimmy Kimmel "predicted" Peter picked the controversial Hannah Ann, and spoilers revealed Madison -- who met Peter's parents on the first one-on-one date -- is actually a virgin.
New information keeps coming out from The Bachelor finale previews, and details from the final week and crazy final rose ceremony. Like Bachelor Peter's mom saying "don't let her go," "bring her home to us," and Chris Harrison showing up right at the final rose ceremony to drop some breaking news. Peter Weber appears to say, of that news, "It's just like, the last thing I needed to hear."
As Chris Harrison told ET of the news:
Peter Weber added:
Chris Harrison saying they "had no idea this was happening" suggests there was something going on the whole time. My mind went to something sad, since he said heartbreaking, wondering if Hannah Ann or Madison had to go home because a family member was seriously ill. But it would also be heartbreaking if a woman was pregnant with Peter's child and he wasn't going to pick her, he was going to propose to someone else. Then maybe he would leave the show without proposing to anyone?
Bachelor Peter did say he was happy now, though, and Reality Steve said he thinks Peter is with Madison or Hannah Ann. Would that fit with a pregnancy bombshell? Since Madison is a virgin, I would guess that would leave her off the list. So we're looking for finale news that is heartbreaking but still somehow leaves Peter in a good place right now after the show.
The latest promo after The Bachelor 2020 Week 2, showed Peter standing outside, presumably in Australia where the final week took place:
Who is he talking about? That could have nothing at all to do with a pregnancy. Once again, we could be way overthinking it. It's just exciting that, for once, we don't know anything beyond Bachelor Peter's final two. Peter was saying he didn't think anyone would guess the ending, but he can't be surprised if people are out there floating wild ideas. Maybe one of them is even correct?
What do you think about the pregnancy theory? Too crazy? Sounds about right? I'm actually going to be irritated if The Bachelor finale news is something mundane after all of these juicy theories. Watch the new finale preview here -- feel free to skip past Demi and ChampagneGate to the end with Peter's mom and the final rose ceremony in Australia:
The Bachelor Season 24 continues Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The 2020 season will be followed by that strange new Bachelor spinoff, and then someone (please don't say Hannah B. again) will have her season of The Bachelorette, and then we'll have Bachelor in Paradise 2020 drama.
