Warning: Spoilers ahead for Peter Weber's 2020 season of The Bachelor, aka, Season 24. Don't look unless you're ready for all the details!
Well, it was really only a matter of time before this happened, wasn't it? While Season 24 star of The Bachelor, Peter Weber, is down to his final three ladies and still trying to figure out who might be about to become his bride-to-be, it looks like two of the women who got dumped by him earlier in the season have already found love...with each other.
Apparently, two of the also-rans from Peter Weber's currently airing season of The Bachelor, Jasmine Nguyen (a 25-year-old client relations manager from Houston) and Alexa Caves (a 27-year-old esthetician and small business owner from Chicago), seem to be dating one another now. And, if Jasmine's Instagram post is to be believed, this isn't a casual hang, but true love. Check it out:
Oooh. Well, they certainly look good together, don't they? Now, it hasn't been confirmed that the two are actually dating right now, as opposed to Jasmine's caption just being a play on words because of their time on The Bachelor and the love that most people have for good friends, and I can certainly seem some fans being dubious about the idea that Jasmine and Alexa are dating. That first photo looks kinda intimate, sure, but it's not exactly a booed up smoking gun. This could easily be a picture of two really close friends, right?
But, there's probably going to be less wiggle room with regards to a romance between Jasmine and Alexa when everyone scrolls over to the second photo in her Instagram post. Um...do you see the way Jasmine is eyeballing Alexa? That's a pure look of longing if ever I saw one, and Alexa looks pretty damn pleased, too. Jasmine and Alexa were both dumped by Peter Weber during week three of The Bachelor, but it looks like that may have been one of the best things to ever happen if it led them to find each other.
After Alexa left The Bachelor she opened up in a since deleted Instagram post (via People) about her "fluid" sexuality, noting that "the amount of people that ask me about my sexuality in my DM’s is crazy," and it had been happening since the first episode, with it being "by far the question I get asked the most." She answered fans' queries by saying:
I’m fluid. I’ve been with women and I’ve been with men. I’m open minded [sic]. To me this really isn’t a big deal. People in my life know this about me. But I thought that I’d share this because some people are curious and I’m not ashamed of who I am. I just do my thang.
If this love connection is real, it wouldn't be the first time two contestants found each other by appearing on the same season of the show. In 2016, two of the women from The Bachelor: Australia found love with each other after getting sent home, and in 2018 two women competing on The Bachelor: Vietnam dramatically quit during filming because they realized that they'd fallen in love with each other.
Of course, fans will remember that the 2019 edition of Bachelor in Paradise saw Bachelor Nation favorite Demi Burnett dump Derek Peth on the beach, after her non-franchise former love Kristian Haggerty was allowed to come on the show, and they continued their romance for the remainder of the season, getting engaged at the end. So, you can never really tell what kind of wonderful things appearing on the show and going through such an intriguing dating process will bring to people's lives.
Meanwhile, as I mentioned earlier, Peter Weber still has some stress ahead as he tries to figure out who his longtime love will be. The Women Tell All special airs tonight, and, according to spoilers from Reality Steve, it will show Peter finally (FINALLY) sending the maddening Victoria Fuller home after Madison Prewett actually does show up for the fantasy suite rose ceremony, and Peter gives roses to her and Hannah Ann Sluss. This, of course, means that all the drama to follow on the WTA will be able to feature everyone's least favorite of Peter's potential fiancées, the dreaded Victoria.
With the obvious exceptions of Madison and Hannah Ann, who will still be in contention by this point in the evening, two other important women won't be in attendance at the WTA: Kelley Flanagan and Natasha Parker. Natasha has already come out and revealed that she simply couldn't make the taping, while rumors are saying that Kelley (who some fans wanted to lead the 2020 round of The Bachelorette) wasn't even invited to appear on the show. Cold-blooded!
We're also hearing that, even though Madison did decide to show up for that rose ceremony, she will change her mind at some point before the finale and dump Peter, which will lead to his mom crying about him needing to "bring her home to us!" and see him (possibly) tracking her down at a rental home somewhere in the wilds of California. But, it's still up in the air as to whether or not that worked and Peter is with Madison now but not engaged, or if he's actually with Hannah Ann.
I have no idea how this season of The Bachelor is going to turn out. Maybe Peter's dating a producer from his season, or maybe he really did knock up one of the contestants he dumped. No matter how things turn out for him, though at least we know that Jasmine and Alexa are happy, and, in my book, that counts for a lot.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC, and will wrap up next week. Our 2020 lead for The Bachelorette, the refreshingly mature Clare Crawley, has been chosen and will begin filming her season later this month, with it set to debut on ABC in May.
