Well, the hometown round has come and gone -- which means we can finally get to the good stuff.
Yes, it's hard to believe, but we've already reached the Fantasy Suite round on Peter Weber's season of The Bachelor.
And it's hard to remember a time when there's been more drama going into the final three.
After all, in addition to the usual stress over Peter's final decision, we now have that pesky ultimatum from Madison Prewett that could potentially prevent Peter from fully enjoying the suite life.
In case you missed it, Madison ominously took Peter aside following Monday night's rose ceremony.
Though the conversation that followed won't air until next week, if you've been following our Bachelor spoilers, then you already know what goes down.
(And if not, this is your final warning to click away, because it's about to get real spoiler-y up in here!)
Madison is a virgin, and she's saving herself for marriage.
She's also very religious -- like, we're Ned Flanders-, Duggar-levels of fundamentalist Christianity.
Thus, it's not enough for Madison to save herself for marriage -- she wants Peter to do the same.
Doesn't make a ton of sense, since we already know he's not a virgin -- in fact we basically watched him have sex with Hannah Brown in a windmill -- but those are Madison's rules.
And not surprisingly, Peter has decided to totally disregard them.
A new promo for next week's episode shows Peter getting very friendly with at least two different women during Fantasy Suite week.
Take a look:
Sure, we don't see him actually gettin' it on with his Suite Week guests -- this is ABC, after all, not 3 am Cinemax -- but the hotel room clips are juxtaposed with scenes of Madison storming off and the other ladies talking about what a prude he is.
So it's safe to say some sexy-time occurred.
The question now is -- did Peter have sex with both Hannah Ann Sluss and Victoria Fuller?
And he answer is -- almost certainly yes.
All across the Bachelor Nation-obsessed corners of the internet, fans have been picking apart the promo for clues as to who enjoys an encounter with Peter's peter on Monday's episode.
Fortunately, the folks at Cosmo have filtered out some of the lunatic ramblings and presented us with a coherent prediction of what happens.
First, there's that already-infamous glass door scene.
It's straight out of a softcore p0rn flick, so you know the Bachelor camera crew was thrilled to get it.
And who's the lucky lady about to touch down with Pilot Pete?
Why, it's none other than Hannah Ann Sluss!
And how do we know?
Well, that question has a slightly more complex answer -- like, the people who figured it out put JFK assassination theorists to shame.
Peter is seen making out in two different beds with two different women in the promo.
The one wearing the fluffy-ass socks in the pic above is presumably the same woman that Peter hooks up with behind the glass door, as both scenes take place in the same room.
They spent the night together, and woke up to an early morning, semi-nude makeout session? Yeah, we think it's safe to say they had sex.
We also think it's safe to say the sock-wearer is Hannah Ann.
We know this because Peter's other hookup takes place in a very different room.
His red reoom partner is rocking a pair of eye-catching heels.
And a few eagle-eyed fans realized they'd seen those exact shoes somewhere before.
Yes, it seems Victoria was rocking them at the last rose ceremony:
Now, the proof that Peter had sex with Victoria is somewhat less conclusive.
But considering she was the one roasting Madison for her prudishness and calling her "disgusting" for issuing Peter an ultimatum, we think it's fair to assume she didn't waste any time in the Fantasy Suite.
Obviously, we won't know for sure until Monday, but one thing we can say for certain is that Madison did not spend any time in the vicinity of Peter's cockpit.
And she probably wasn't too thrilled by how quiickly he disregarded her ultimatum.
It's finally here, Bachelor Nation.
Or... it's finally about to be here, at least.
Following emotional hometown dates and warnings from ex-girlfriends and surprises about his suitors, Peter Weber will finally get to experience the one week that likely made him sign up for The Bachelor in the first place:
Fantasy Suite Week!
We all know how much this guy loves to have sex, right?
And now he's found himself in quite the contrasting situation with the women he's chosen to remain as his aspiring wives.
There's Victoria, who seems so evil and manipulative to some viewers that Peter must only be keeping her around because he's dying to sleep with her.
Either that, or producers have told Weber to do so in order to build drama.
And drama is exactly what Victoria is set to bring next Monday night.
"I haven't seen Madison like this before," she says about her fellow contestant early in this trailer, adding of the well-known virgin:
"I'm sorry, but that's disgusting. Putting him in that position is so unfair. Are you kidding me?"
There's Madison, who has made it clear she's saving herself for marriage.
Which is totally cool and fine, of course, except that she's also taken outward issue with Peter's excited and often-busy penis.
"I won't be able to move forward if you have slept with other women," she tells him point blank in the revealing promo just released by ABC.
What is The Bachelor supposed to do in that situation?!?
And then there's Hannah Ann, who has been among the front-runners all season long.
However, take a look at all The Bachelor spoilers out there and you'll see that many believe she's all set to be the next Bachelorette.
This would mean Peter selects either Victoria or Madison to be his wife, both of which seem like far-fetched options.
Hmmm.... unless a certain other Bachelor report is accurate.
There's also the possibility that Peter goes back to Merissa Pence, the ex-girlfriend who showed up out of nowhere last Monday.
All we can really say for certain at this point is that women will cry and Peter will get his sexual intercourse on because, sorry Madison, but that's just how this pilot flies.
Check out the promotional video here to see what's on tap for Fantasy Suite Week!
They say you can’t go home again.
And yet, on The Bachelor this week, Peter Weber went home again… and again… and again… and again.
How did Weber’s hometown date episode go? Who did he send packing before it was all said and done? And how did an ex-girlfriend play an unexpected role?!?
We begin this recap with a trip to Hannah Ann’s native Knoxville, Tennessee.
Before their date had even begun, this member of the final four made a point to warn Peter about her father, Rick, describing him as an old-school, protective dad who works in the lumber industry.
It was important that she prove to her parent “that this California guy is tough,” yet getting Rick’s approval was far easier said than done.
What a shock, right? It’s typically a breeze for any Bachelor to win over the father of his potential wife.
After spending the day together, Hannah Ann and her handsome pilot headed to her home to meet her family — and it was apparent from the outset that Rick was skeptical about the whole process.
“The biggest question on my mind is how Peter feels about Hannah,” he said.
“I mean, can you honestly sit here and tell me tonight that it’s not just a flash in the pan? Because right now, that’s the way I look at it.”
“What I can tell you is there is something real here,” Peter said in defense of his feelings for Hannah Ann, adding:
“I’m actually hoping to tell her this tonight, that I am falling in love with her and I don’t want her to have any doubt about that.”
Rick was all like, dude, do NOT say that big-time word to my child unless you mean it… which, naturally, prompted Peter to go ahead and say it.
“I know how I’m feeling about you, and I can honestly say that I am falling in love with you,” he told Hannah Ann. “Just being here with you tonight with your family, it feels so right. And it makes me so happy.”
“I am in love with you,” Hannah Ann replied. “I’m devoted and I’m committed and I’m in it.”
From there, Peter reunited with Kelsey in Des Moines, Iowa.
They also spent the day — stomping grapes to create their own blend of wine — and Kelsey even dropped the L-word herself for the first time.
While Peter seemed genuinely happy, he didn’t reciprocate, merely telling her that his heart was “definitely falling.”
That evening, he met Kelsey’s mom Beth, stepdad Mike and a few other family members.
During a one-on-one conversation with Beth, Peter said he and Kelsey “connected on a such a deep and emotional level” early on.
“As a mom of three having gone through a divorce, I am concerned,” the protective parent responded. “Nobody wants to have their child’s heartbroken. So, don’t break my girl’s heart.”
Seems like a fair requst, right?
That was really all there was to the visit with Kesley, as Peter next went to Auburn, Alabama to play some basketball with Madison… whose dad coaches this fun sport.
That night, he went to her house for dinner to meet the while family, where the topic of intimacy came up during a private discussion between Madison and her mom, Tonya.
“I haven’t fully talked to him yet about how I view intimacy, and how I feel that is something that I have saved for marriage,” Madison confessed. “I don’t know how he’s going to respond to that.”
Cut to yet another emotional chat with yet another emotional father, who said his daughter is “pure” and who feared Peter would corrupt or hurt her, and Peter replying as follows:
“I just can’t give you an answer right now [about who I’m going to pick], and I’m sorry about that.”
This trip didn’t conclude with any huge feelings shared between the occasional couple.
“I think I was hoping to be there,” Madison said. “I was hoping to tell Peter that I’m in love with him, but I’m still trying to figure out if our spirits and our souls are compatible and I think a lot is weighing on that.”
Finally, Peter flew to Virginia Beach, Virginia, for his hometown date with Victoria Fuller.
They spent the day exploring the beach and boardwalk before she surprised him with a Hunter Hayes concert, where a group of fans formed to watch the performance unfold.
(No, you guys, Victoria did not also date Hayes.)
And then, in a total shocker that Peter couldn’t possibly have known was coming and was definitely not scripted by producers… an ex-girlfriend showed up!
Her face was hilariously blurred on air, but she’s since been identified as Merissa Pence.
“Just be careful,” she warned Peter about Victoria, explaining:
“I’m from here, and I just know what a good guy you are, and I would hate for who you are to be affected by somebody else. So that’s really all I’ll say.
“I know that you’re a great guy and I don’t think that you deserve what you’re on a date with right now.”
Marissa then claimed that she actually knew Victoria sort of well. What a coincidence that we totally believe is true!
“I actually used to be friends with her and things happened, probably a few months ago,” she continued.
“We’re just not friends anymore. I’ve tried to mend the relationship, just because we have mutual friends … but I just feel like I want to say this to you, because I know who you are and it’s a good person and I don’t think that you deserve that.
“There has been many relationships broken up because of her, and I don’t think it’s a good relationship for you to be in.”
Peter was taken aback by this bombshell and brought it up later with Fuller.
“You know how on our first date at that concert, you had an ex there? Today I had an ex there, too. Her name is Merissa,” he began.
“We just kind of chatted for a little bit, and then she just brought some stuff to my attention that she thought I should know.
She told me that you’ve caused a lot of other relationships to end — I don’t know what she could be referring to, but those are her words.”
Victoria responded in anger, storming off in tears because, in her view, Peter had just immedately taken the side of an ex over her.
“I adore you,” she told him later, choking back sobs.
“I literally wanted to tell you tonight that I was falling in love with you. And how am I supposed to do that? … I had such high hopes for you to meet my family and I’m just so disappointed.”
The two then said an emotional goodbye… only for Victoria to show up the next morning at Peter’s hotel.
“For some reason, I just can’t walk away from you,” she said. “You can make this decision. If you don’t want to continue with me, then I understand. But I can’t let you leave without letting you know that I’m falling in love with you.”
Yup, there it is, folks. Again.
Everyone then met back up in Los Angeles for a rose ceremony, despite Peter never meeting Victoria’s family.
Peter gave the first flower to Hannah Ann and the second to Madison, saving the final rose for Victoria — and eliminating Kelsey in the process.
“I’m so sorry, and I know you probably didn’t see that coming at all,” he said as he walked her out.
“Believe me, when you told me that you loved me, that meant the world to me. But I just — I wasn’t there.”
Will he go there next week in the Fantasy Suites, however? Check out the promo below!
This season of The Bachelor has been full of surprises, but there’s been one constant throughout:
Hannah Brown is, and forever will be, one of the thirstiest people on the planet.
As you know, Hannah is not officially involved in this year’s competition.
But that hasn’t stopped her from showing up on set unexpectedly and offering an endless stream of commentary from her couch.
She’s like a 40-year-old ex-high school quarterback who still shows up at his alma mater and insists on making the pregame locker room speech.
Some people think Hannah should have a second turn as Bachelorette.
Others have noted that her season sucked because she made one bad decision after another and kept the likes of Luke Parker and Jed freakin’ Wyatt hanging around until the very end.
The fact is, Hannah has had a very good run and remained relevant far longer than most viewers expected.
But in all likelihood, Ms. Brown is in her fourteenth minute of fame — a fact she seems very well aware of.
And so, Hannah is pulling out all the stops as Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor enters its final stretch.
As you’re probably aware we’re down to Peter’s final four, and everyone has an opinion on Weber’s choices — especially Hannah Brown.
Hannah has been offering her two cents through her Instagram Stories, and while she has yet to pick a favorite, she’s been very clear on the identity of her least favorite.
There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding Victoria Fuller this season, and — spoiler alert! — the best/worst is yet to come.
Of course, Victoria’s self-deprecating wit makes her a pleasant change of pace from the show’s usual parade of Insta-fame-obsessed pageant queens, and no one really knows her entire story yet, so we’re reserving judgment.
But you know who’s not holding back? That’s right — Hannah Brown.
Hannah recorded herself watching the latest episode — yes, this woman is so thirsty it’s like she woke up in the middle of the Sahara with a raging hangover — and she basically unloaded on Victoria with both barrels.
During an emotional scene in which Victoria describes herself as “annoying to be around,” Hannah quips, “Well… you said it,” and unleashes that rapid-fire guffaw that somehow endeared her to Bachelor viewers south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Yes, Hannah Brown is blasting other people for being “annoying to be around.”
We don’t know how this is possible, but it seems that Hannah Brown has never met Hannah Brown!
Look, we know a lot of you feel bad for Hannah for the way her season played out, but let’s not forget, she was an unpopular choice for Bachelorette from the very beginning, and she’s the one kept Luke and Jed, and cut Tyler Cameron and Peter.
Oh, and if your complaint with the show these days is that it features too many melodramatic crying jags and self-absorbed monologues studded with liberal use of the word “like” — well, no one is more responsible for ushering in those trends than Hannah Brown, who was never dry-eyed during her time on Colton Underwood’s season.
Like, like it or not, Hannah is like the Like Queen who gave us this like total mess of a season.
Well, folks, another season of The Bachelor is in the can.
After a lot of heartbreak, one freak accident, and some major shadiness involving a contestant who can only be described as the female equivalent of Luke P., Peter Weber has made his final selection and wrapped filming.
So is the beloved pilot/windmill sex enthusiast a newly-engaged man?
Sadly -- we don't know yet.
It seems producers are doing a better job than usual keeping the events of this seaon's finale under wraps.
But thanks to the spoiler master himself, Reality Steve, we do know the identities of Peter's final two selections, as well as the fate of the villainous Victoria Fuller.
Take a look:
[We're down to the final four, and we've updated this post with Reality Steve's latest spoilers. Scroll on for the latest intel on Peter's future wife.]
1. The Rose Master General
2. Decisions, Decisions
3. Hannah Sluss
4. Madison Prewett
5. Victoria Fuller
6. Kelsey Wier
Now, Peter is responding to backlash that he's received and explaining why being the leading man is so much harder than he had imagined.
Peter Weber spoke to E! News about his difficult role as the titular Bachelor and the volume of hate that he has received for it.
"I'm definitely getting some tough skin now," Peter confesses.
"I understand that there's a lot of drama right now and things are kind of crazy," he acknowledges.
"But," Peter continues, "I do think it's a little ... it's too bad a lot of the criticism and a lot of hate that's been kind of coming out."
"I just think there's no place for that," Peter opines, "and there's too much of that right now."
"And," he adds, "I wish that people could more focus on spreading love and just more positivity."
In contrast, Peter says: "And not so much negative stuff."
"Because again," he explains, "we're just ... we're all human."
"And I know there's a lot of opinons about the women on the show," Peter states.
Some would argue that viewers having differing opinions about the women on the show is kind of the point of the franchise.
He adds that viewers have "a lot of opinions about me."
Namely, a lot of people think that he's overwhelmed, indecisive, and simply wasn't cut out for the role.
"You know," Peter says, "we're just doing our best."
"We sign up for this type of experience," he explains, "and you hope for the best."
"You hope you're going to find love at the end of it," Peter notes.
"And yeah," he acknowledges, "things are always going to happen, things are gonna come out."
Peter says that stories from people's personal histories come to light "because we're human beings and we're not perfect."
"But," he expresses, "I just wish people would focus more on spreading love rather than so much hate."
As to how much hate Peter receives and sees, he says: "You have no idea."
He admits that even having been on The Bachelorette did not prepare him for his current role or the hate that he would receive.
"And obviously," Peter details, "being on the contestant side and being on the lead side and two different worlds."
He warns: "So you can never really prepare for either one."
"I remember getting ready to be the Bachelor," Peter recalls, "and you try to prepare as well as you can."
"You think you know what's coming and how you're going to handle it," he explains, "and htere's just no way."
Peter cautions: "You can't ever imagine dating htat many people in that kind of environment."
"It's a beautiful, amazing environment," he quickly clarifies, "but it's also very tough."
"There's a lot of pressure," Peter explains, "and you have to make decisions in a really short amount of time."
"And," he continues, "you have to let go of relationships that you maybe don't know if you want to let go of yet, and it's tough."
"And you just try your best," Peter affirms.
"And," he notes, "that's all I did."
"And, you know," Peter concludes, "I'm happy about that."
Sometimes, all that you can do is try your best.
The Bachelor aired the fiirst of two episodes planned for this week on Monday night.
But while that may seem excessive, Peter Weber went ahead and upped his own ante during the latest installment of this franchise yesterday evening...
... by sending SIX women home.
It was an all-out war between the women from the start, as the contestants screamed over Peter's decision to bring Alayah back into the mansion after originally sending her home over concerns that she was being “fake.”
“I don’t care what anyone in there says. I know that you have an amazing heart,” Weber told Alayah after pulling her aside amid the tension and adding:
“I felt such a strong connection with you from night one.”
Sounds sweey, right? Except... Peter then went Alayah home because it thought it was all too much for her to handle.
Peter then apologized to the rest of the women
for following ABC's lame script for creating a “toxic” situation, which they seemed to mostly accept.
“I’m asking the women to trust me right now, but I feel like a lot of them probably don’t,” Peter explained. “I deserve to be called out. I messed up. That was a slap in their face, and I see that now.”
Even after this early drama, Peter then had to anchor an actual rose ceremony, during which he sent Deandra, Kiarra and Savanah packing.
And then the fun finally got underway -- with a trip to Costa Rica!
It didn't take long, however, for Peter to sustain a forehead injury in a golf cart accident in during a day off from shooting.
While the accident wasn't shown on air, Peter showed up with a bandage on his head and filled the women in on what transpired.
“I ran into a golf cart,” he said with a laugh after concocting a story about a run-in with a puma.
“I had a glass in my hand, as I hit my head I then shattered the glass into my head. It just sounds ridiculous. I frickin’ stabbed myself in the head. I will never forget this experience.”
Thankfully, Peter was able to recover sufficiently enough to take Sydney for a helicopter ride... have a picnic with her... and, of course, swap a lot of spit.
“You know, you’re the best kisser,” he told her. “That’s our secret. Don’t tell anyone.”
Later, while eating, Peter and Sydney grew even closer after she got candid up about her parents’ divorce and her estranged relationship with her father.
Feeling like he’s finally “peeling back the layers” of Sydney, Peter gave her a rose.
Meanwhile, back at the house, Kelsey, who had a one-on-one last Monday, was starting to feel the pressure of competing for the handsome pilot's attention.
She broke down into tears while talking to Tammy.
It was one thing for her to feel annoyed that Peter was out with another woman... but Kesley then took it up 27 notches.
“She’s a dramatic f-ckin bitch,” she said to Tammy of Kelsey. “I don’t care about all these girls and their drama.”
(Editor's Note: In that case, boy oh boy, are you on the wrong show!)
Following the group date (a bikini photoshoot with Cosmopolitan Magazine), Kelsey told Peter that ,despite feeling insecure about the process, she was falling in love with him.
“Honestly, I never expected to have feelings this strong,” she said. “It felt really good to get the validation I did tonight. It made me really happy.”
Kelsey would soon feel sad, however, because Tammy ratted her out and told Peter all about her Sydney bashing.
“Kelsey had a mental breakdown because Sydney went off with you in a helicopter. She was sitting by herself crying her eyes out,” she told Weber. “I’ve seen multiple times that she’s drinking excessively.”
Whoa there! We just entered new territory of accusations, didn't we?
Was this breakdown part true, Peter proceeded to ask Kelsey?
“I was emotional, but it wasn’t a breakdown,” she replied through tears, attempting to explain:
“I want you to know I didn’t have an emotional breakdown. I was sad, I was really sad. It’s not like every day has been like that. It was just the first time after a one-on-one where my feelings were really strong.”
Kelsey then cried once again after talking to the other suitors and hearing them blame her for all the drama.
On a sexier note, Peter took Kelley to a spiritual guru for a one-on-one date, where they strip down to their bathing suits for a cleansing ritual.
Peter then admitted to Kelley that she seemed hesitant to open up, prompting her to reply:
“I want someone to be my other half. I want to be with someone who we are a power couple. I’m looking for someone to challenge me on a day to day.”
This was enough for her to earn a rose.
Back to the drama at the house:
Kelsey learned that Tammy was the one who told Peter she was kind of an alcoholic, an allegation she tried to shoot down when chatting next with Peter.
“For some reason, Tammy is going around telling everyone that I have a drinking problem. Then it turned into popping pills,” Kelsey told The Bachelor. “It’s very hurtful.”
The conversation further strengthed her bond with Peter.
“It’s sad to me to think that she was made to feel that uncomfortable,” he told the camera. “I loved that she felt the need to come over and it meant enough to her to clarify things with me.”
So much so that he simply gave Kelsey a rose right then and there.
This pissed off the other women, as did the fact that Peter canceled that night's cocktail party.
“It just kind of sucks because maybe if you hadn’t gone to talk to him, maybe we could have had a cocktail party,” Lexi told Kelsey.
It all got so ugly, you guys.
Kelsey said at one point the only pills she takes are “Adderall and birth control," while Tammy lashed out at Sydney for criticizing her over involving Peter in the house drama, labeling her a “princess.”
The other women were upset that rumors were distracting from their potential time to make connections. Literally, EVERYone started crying.
Before Peter starts giving out roses, Tammy pulled him aside.
“I would just hope that you would never think that I’m coming from a malicious place,” she said to him. “I’m here to focus on my relationship with you.”
Feeling left out, Mykenna then interrupted these two to tell Peter how much the drama has been weighing on her.
While viewers didn't see much of the conversation, Peter was left standing alone and looking very sad.
He eventually returned and sent Lexi and Shiann home.
What a total mess.
Before Wednesday's episode airs, take a breath and visit our section of The Bachelor spoilers to see what happens next.
Consider this your obligatory The Bachelor Spoilers Warning, but...
... Peter Weber is about to have a lot of sex on future episodes of this ABC franchise.
As long-time viewers of this show know (all too well!) at this point, Weber loves a quality roll in the sack.
He and Hannah Brown infamously got it on four times in one night while staying inside a windmill several months ago.
In the new trailer for Week 3 (and beyond) of The Bachelor, we see Peter kissing a great number of suitors.
We also see him running his hands all over many of them, while opening talking about sleeping with many of them and wanting to sleep with others.
"What do I need to do to get you alone in a backseat of a car?" one contestant openly asks the pilot in one scene featured here, while Peter later responds to some critics by stating very simply:
"Sex is very important for a relationship. I don't know why there's a taboo because it's part of the relationship."
That is a fact, is it not?
But with sexual intercourse comes drama. A lot of drama, if the preview here is any indication.
"Today I realized I was in love with Peter, but if he sleeps with anybody else, it's going to be hard for me to continue to move forward," says one woman.
This stance doesn't make a lot of sense to Weber.
"How do you just walk away and give up? I still feel it and I want to fight, but there is so much right now that is just destroying my heart," he says.
Elsewhere in this intriguing video, there's a scene with Peter's mom crying (more like bawling) and telling her son to get a girl back and bring her home. Could she be referring to Hannah?!?
"My heart is, like, broken right now. I'm crazy in love with her and it's not over. She means way too much to me to be able to let her go," Peter cries himself in another scene.
As for what else we learn in this promo?
- The women will head to Chile and Costa Rica.
- One aspiring wife will say of another: "She's manipulating Peter. She'll get a rude awakening.'
- Peter tells another: "Every single time I'm with you, it gets better and better."
- There's a vicious pillow fight.
Ready to a lenghty look at what's to come?
Which includes Chris Harrison dropping some sort of bombshell on Peter right before he proposes?
CHECK OUT THIS EXTENDED TRAILER NOW!
We saw some feuding explode on this week's episode, and if you follow The Bachelor spoilers, you know that's not the end of it.
Now, Chris Harrison is teasing that Peter Weber's season of The Bachelor ends in an unprecedented and "gut-wrenching" way.
Just days ago, Harrison told celebrity gossip site Us Weekly what viewers can expect in Peter's doozy of a season.
"It’s a very dramatic start, as they say, but it always is!" he acknowledged of Season 24 (and literally every season).
"You look at Colton Underwood‘s season and that was crazy for how it went down," Chris pointed out.
He added: "Hannah Brown‘s season was crazy, in a totally different way."
"Now Peter Weber‘s season is unpredictable and riveting in another way," Chris teased. "And we don’t see it coming."
"It’s something that the producers didn’t know about," Chris admitted, referring to this season's big, unknown twist.
"It’s something Peter and I didn’t know about."
"Inevitably, something happens we’ve never dealt with before," Chris shared about late in Peter's season.
He shared how painful and emotionally jarring the twist will be, describing it: "It’s gut-wrenching."
Some fans have guessed that it has to do with what we know about Victoria Fuller and her controversial past.
However, what we've seen on the big teaser for this season suggests that it may be something very different.
In more visual teasers, we've seen Chris approach Peter just as he is about, it seems, to hand out his final rose.
It looks like he's about to propose, but ...
"There’s something I just found out,” Chris is seen telling him, though we of course do not hear his next words.
Whatever those words might reveal, we then see the handsome pilot laying down while surrounded by the crew.
We know the producers can edit a promo like it's their jobs. But man, that just looks dramatic and excruciating.
“It’s just like the last thing I needed to hear," Peter confesses in the teaser, and then it gets even more painful.
In the meantime, we also see Weber's mom crying.
She begs, "Don't let her go. Bring her home to us."
We don't know which woman she's referring to here, but it's clear that she has strong feelings on the subject.
One of the things that makes Season 24 so distinct from other recent seasons is that not even Reality Steve, Bachelor spoiler god that he is, knows the whole of how it ends. At least not yet.
Oh, there have been "false positives" before, quickly corrected.
Many suspect that ABC has arranged for misinformation to be "leaked" to discredit leakers. Diabolical.
But in this case, despite all that we know (or think we know) about the end, we don't know the answer to the ultimate question:
Is Peter engaged right now?
But even Harrison himself acknowledges that the truth could leak sooner or later.
"I don’t know if anybody can say that [it won’t be spoiled],” he admitted. “I don’t know how you say that."
"In this day and age, stuff gets out," he noted.
"Who knows what will happen."
The one thing that we can say with a reasonable degree of certainty is that Peter and Hannah Brown do not appear to be endgame.
Hannah is getting an extraordinary amount of hate, mostly from people who dislike her because she (gasp) had sex with her boyfriend.
We know, right? So crazy.
Of course, the real reason that she's back is because ABC and producers wanted her back. She makes good TV. Hands down.
She and Peter have to put themselves through some very uncomfortable emotions on screen, because it's good TV. The end.
Who do you think is endgame? Check out the full roster of available, aspiring Mrs. Webers below and make your selection.
You know how all those Bachelor fans out there are angry that Hannah Brown has returned to the franchise that made her famous?
Well... they aren't alone.
As is made clear in the following official trailer for Peter Weber's second week as the most sought after reality star on television, most of the suitors are mighty peeved about Hannah's comeback as well.
Peeved, we should say, and upset.
The teaser for Week 2 -- THE BACHELOR SPOILERS ALERT -- shows a great deal of tension over Hannah’s appearance and, of course, lots and lots of tears.
Natasha tells Sydney at one point: “I wasn’t going to sit there and say, ‘It’s all right,’ when it’s not.”
Later, Mykenna tearfully tells the other women:
“I’m fighting for my chance to be here and I’m fighting for love, and I’m going to do what I have to do.”
At various points, we also see shots of an emotional Brown, who, of course, rejected Weber from The Bachelorette several months ago and expressed regret over this decision on last Monday's season premiere.
“I don’t know what I did,” Hannah blurted out about her time on The Bachelorette, confessing to Peter her "heart was confused" and full-on sobbing.
“I don’t know what the f-ck I was doing," she added last week of choosing Jed over Peter.
Peter was all kinds of perplexed while hearing all this.
“I don’t know what to do right now,” he said. “I’m so confused and this is the first week that this whole thing is starting. And I’m obviously not 100 percent where I thought I was.”
It then sounded as if Peter invited Hannah to actually be a Season 24 contestant, which is when the premiere cut to black and left viewers hanging. Big time.
Where will things pick up next week?
With controversy continuing to rage over Brown swooping in and trying to be with Peter... again.
"He can go be with Hannah. I’m going home. I’m done," says one woman at one point.
And, really, can you blame her? Or anyone for thinking Hannah is way in the wrong here? We mean... she had her chance, you know?
Will she actually stick around for the long run?
Check out the preview featured here to see how the ladies are reacting to this stunner!
Some very vocal The Bachelor viewers have been slamming Hannah Brown's return on Peter Weber's season, calling it unfair ... and worse.
A Country singer even penned a song about Hannah. Chris Harrison liked it, and Hannah is clapping back.
Jake Owen is a Country singer. On Thursday, January 9, he shared a short video of himself singing about Hannah Brown.
It seems that he (playfully) has an issue with Hannah's guest spot on Peter's season.
"Monday night, my girlfriend had the damn TV on and all you heard about on the new Bachelor was Alabama Hannah," Jake complains.
"It was just Alabama Hannah everywhere," he characterizes. "She won’t go away."
"Believe it or not, I met her on the last season of The Bachelorette," Jake says.
He details: "I played ‘Made For You’ for them in I think it was like Rhode Island or something."
"She’s a cool girl," Jake acknowledges.
He emphasizes that his video and his song is "not even a dig at the actual Alabama Hannah."
"Alabama Hannah, what do you want? / If it’s love that you need, well then honey, it’s gone,” Jake sings.
“You had your chances, so won’t you leave me alone," he croons. "Alabama Hannah, won’t you go on back home."
"I been out here in California, I’ve been soaking up the sun," Jake goes on, singing from Peter's perspective.
He continues: "There’s lots of pretty ladies, and I can’t pick just one."
“I’m flying high, I got peace of mind," Jake's lyrics continue. "I already raised the bar."
His song complains: "Now you’re showing up here tonight, who do you think you are?."
"Alabama Hannah won’t you roll on with the tide. … Alabama Hannah, honey, get out of my life," Jake sings.
In additional lyrics, he refers to her as both a "beauty queen” and “dancing star," referring to her pageant past and her Dancing With The Stars win.
"Well I guess you think you messed up since you seen me moving on," Jake sings.
He accuses her of "Thinking we could pick up, right where we left off."
“But you got to lay in the bed you made, and I hate to let you down," Jake sings, again from Peter's perspective.
"Girl this ain’t no windmill," he jokes. "We can’t go round and round."
Chris Harrison clearly appreciated the song (and the free hype for the show), and tweeted to that effect.
"My man @jakeowen speaking his truth to Hannah B on behalf of Peter #TheBachelor," he acknowledged on Twitter.
Real talk, it is an absolute dream for any show to have people writing songsa bout it for free.
The whole reason that producers wanted Hannah on Season 24 was because she is polarizing.
Hannah saw Chris' tweet and clapped back.
"Better just be his truth Christopher," she cautioned.
"I’m not just chop liver now," she rminded him.
Hannah joked: "You still have to love me and try to understand my mess. @chrisbharrison."
Chris offered a good-natured reply.
"Haha you know I’ll always love you girl," he wrote to Hannah.
He affirmed "You’re family and family sticks together through the good the bad and the mascara…”
“Now that’s a country song," Chris ended his tweet.

Dean Unglert will not be home for the holidays.
But the Bachelor in Paradise star will still be around for the holidays, which means Unglert has a lot to be thankful for after taking a nasty spill while skiing this week.
The 28-year old posted a selfie from his hospital bed Monday evening and wrote that he is "extremely grateful" to be recovering from a wipeout that "could have been so much worse," elaborating as follows:
All my life i’ve dreamt about skiing the swiss alps. how could you not? they’re huge and beautiful and have some of the best snow in the world.
Today, however, was not my day.
i was sending just a liiiiitle too hard and took a nasty spill which ultimately put me here. and since this is probably going to be the only pic i get in switzerland, i figured i gotta post it.
Unglert went on to detail hoow it took him an hour to flag someone down for assistance -- but, once he was located, the reality star was airlifted and in emergency surgery in less than an hour.
As a result, Dean offered strong praise for the Swiss mountain rescue, who he said "blew my mind today."
The ABC alum, who lives in his van and is known for posting a lot of outdoor adventures on Instagram, will need to take it easy for a while. U
Unglert said he suffered a dislocated hip and a fractured femur, requiring four screws and a plate in his leg.
Unglert was a major presence on the latest season of Bachelor in Paradise, meeting girlfriend Caelynn Miller-Keyes during his stint on the island.
After leavinv sad face emojis on Unglert’s original post, the former pageant queen took to her Instagram Story and wrote this to Dean shortly afterward:
“I just want to squeeze you so bad."
Unglert reposted a snapshot of the pair and proved he still has his sense of humor from the hospital.
“Look at how that cheek perfectly contours that forehead. much wow,” he joked in response. “Also. plz don’t squeeze me. that would hurt. thx."
Other Bachelor Nation stars also reacted in shock to Dean's accident.
"Dean! I am your biggest fan! If you lift my shirt up and look under my armpit you will see a unnatural marking that will prove this to you!" wrote Ben Higgins, adding:
"As the chairman of your fan-club I hope you were wearing a helmet for safety!” the former Bachelor wrote. “If not, on behalf of your fan club I am going to force you from here on out! Please be safe.
'We need you. We need your face!"
Then there was this from JoJo Fletcher:
“Deanie!!! Ahhh so glad you’re okay tho!!"
And this from Chris Harrison:
"Damn boy sorry for the bad spill. Get better. Beaches of paradise are never this dangerous."
And this from Jared Haibon:
"Oh no!! Hope you’re doing okay buddy! That’s terrible."
And, finally, this from Peter Kraus, who appeared opposite Dean on The Bachelorette Season 13 as a suitor:
"Good lord man! Praying for a fast recovery for you! Rest easy."
J.P. Rosenbaum could use your prayers right about now.
As revealed by wife Ashley Hebert on Sunday, the Bachelorette alum has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.
We’ll let Hebert take it from here…
“JP was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome yesterday,” Ashley posted on her Instagram Stories on December 8.
She then added as an important part of her update:
“He is in treatment and doing well. It may be a long road to full recovery, but we are so grateful to everyone that has helped us get to a speedy diagnosis and treatment.”
What is Guillain-Barré syndrome, we’re sure many readers are now asking?
“Yeah, I had to Google that one too,” J.P. joked on his own social media post, alongside a photograph of him at the hospital.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the ex-Bachelorette suitor’s diagnosis is a rare autoimmune disorder, in which a person’s immune system can cause damage to the nerves, weaken the muscles and occasionally even cause paralysis.
It can be serious, in other words.
But there’s no way of knowing right now just where Rosenbaum falls on this scale or how bad it will get for him.
In a series of videos to his Instagram Stories, which featured the reality star lying in his hospital bed on Sunday, JP described the diagnosis as “very surreal and humbling and crazy, rare.”
He explained why:
“Things you do every day, like picking up this phone, or buttoning buttons, tying shoelaces, putting on deodorant, just can’t do it.
Picking up my kids, can’t do it. Wiping your ass, maybe TMI, but might have Ashley assist on the next one. Can’t really believe it.”
The Bachelorette star then told followers that he may need to be in the hospital for a few more days, while physicians continue to monitor and work out his symptoms.
“I know there’s lot of physical therapy in my future,” he said.
There is no known cure for Guillain-Barré syndrome — but treatments, including plasma exchange and immunoglobulin therapy, can relieve symptoms.
The couple met on season 7 of The Bachelorette and got married in December 2012, with Chris Harrison officiating the wedding.
They have two children, Fordham and Essex, and recently celebrated their seven-year wedding anniversary.
“7 years down, probably about 3-4 more to go. Happy anniversary to the woman responsible for all the love and happiness in this picture (and basically all my pictures for the last 7 years),” J.P. wrote in a heartwarming and funny Instagram post just last week.
As you can see above, Ashley has thanked fans for their support and advice.
We’ll continue to update this story as more information comes out.
For now, we’ll simply wish JP and his family nothing but the best.
For those who missed it, we previously revealed a number of secrets regarding the upcoming The Bachelor season premiere.
Click here for The Bachelor spoilers galore.
Today, however, we’re here to run down a spoiler of a different kind; of the entirely opposite kind, in fact.
That’s right, folks, we have intel on The Bachelor season finale.
And it comes from a man who basically makes a living as the one person who knows more about this franchise than anyone else on planet Earth.
Yup: We’re looking at you, Reality Steve!
On this television expert’s latest podcast, Steve Carbone said something that has been making headlines ever since – and for good reason.
Carbone revealed on Thursday that the concluding episode of Peter Weber’s run, which will likely wrap up in May, is unconventional.
“In regards to the finale… I can say with about as much certainty as possible that this was not a normal ending this season.”
That’s all Reality Steve would say on this topic.
Previously, though, he did provide some Bachelor spoilers that at least give fans a clear idea of which suitors will be at the center of this eventual finale.
And he reiterated them again here.
“I can say that I’m very, very confident in saying [that] as we know, Hannah Sluss and Madison Prewett are your two said,” Carbone said on this new podcast, referencing his prior late November announcement.
Hannah is a 23-year-old from Knoxville, Tennesee… while Madison is a 23-year-old from Birmingham, Alabama.
Which of the two will prevail … or will neither of them?
The final Rose Ceremony will also take place in Alice Springs, a small town located in Australia’s Northern Territory and considered the capital of the Australian Outback.
And it sounds very much as if Weber will not come back from that unique location as anyone’s fiance.
This doesn’t mean that Weber might not be engaged right now.
Steve explains that he and his chosen winner may very well have agreed to get married at some point after the finale was filmed.
But the Oracle of The Bachelor spoilers sounds rather adament that Peter does NOT propose on this final episode.
Interesting and intriguing, right?
Outside of Reality Steve, no one else associated with the long-running show has said much about Season 24. Like at all.
We do know, of course, that Hannah Brown will somehow be involved… and that Peter had the time of his life during shooting.
Can you blame a single guy, really?
After the season wrapped, Peter captioned a photo of himself smiling with his beloved dog on Instagram last month.
“Just got back from two months of the most insane journey ever… Told my boy everything and he can’t believe it!”
If dogs could talk.
The Bachelor premieres on January 6 at 8/7c on ABC with a three-hour opening installment. Yes, three hours. Oy vey.
Well, folks, another season of The Bachelor is in the can.
After a lot of heartbreak, a freak accident, and some major shadiness involving a contestant who can onlt be described as the female equivalent of Luke P., Peter Weber has made his final selection and wrapped filming.
So is the beloives pilot/windmill sex enthusiast a newly-engaged man?
Sadly -- we don't know yet.
Producers are doing a better job than usual keeping thr events of this seaon's finale under wraps.
But thanks to the spoiler master himself, Reality Steve, we do know the identities of Peter's final two selections, as well as the fate of the villainous Victoria Fuller.
Take a look:
1. The Rose Master General
2. Decisions, Decisions
3. Hannah Sluss
4. Madison Prewit
5. Victoria Fuller
6. Kelsey Wier
Now, Victoria Fuller is hitting back at rumors that she poaches her friends' boyfriends and husbands.
"I’d like to start off by saying thank you to all of my family & friends for the overwhelming support," Victoria Fuller's heartfelt Instagram post begins.
"Even to the strangers who have reached out to show me kindness," she writes. "THANK YOU."
"The RUMORS you are hearing are FALSE," Victoria assures her followers and anyone else who might be reading.
"There will be a time & place where I can defend myself," she reveals, "but for now I choose to wait."
"HOWEVER, bullying is NOT ok," Victoria affirms.
She points out: "Nor is it fair."
"Especially when casting judgement and basing opinions upon pure speculation, assumptions, & LIES," Victoria argues.
Clearly, she is referring to numerous allegations that she seems to target friends' significant others and have affairs with them.
"With that being said—" Victoria writes, changing gears.
"On my best days & especially on my worst days I look to a friend," she says. "The best friend I’ve ever had in my life."
"He does not judge me for what I look like," Victoria observes. "He does not throw stones when I am down."
"He makes me smile when I am mad," she details. "Licks my tears when I am sad."
It took six whole sentences into her description for us to be sure that she was tlaking about a dog and not her religious beliefs, but yes, it's a dog.
"Lays on my chest when my anxiety is through the roof," Victoria's description continues. That sounds like the best kind of weighted blanket.
"And paws my face when I can’t get out of bed some days," she writes, "to tell me, ‘Hey! I’m here. You’re enough. Remember that.’"
"That friend is my Black Lab, Buxton," Victoria reveals.
"I’m so proud to say that my boy is in training to become a #therapydog."
"Buxton has served as my personal service dog for over a year now, but his new role will be a little different."
"As a therapy dog Buxton will be providing comfort to children in hospitals, affection to elderly in retirement homes,"
"love to those who may be having a hard time at school, & others who maybe just need a hug!"
"Life will throw you curveballs," Victoria readily acknowledges.
She notes: "but sometimes all you need is some love & loyalty from a 4 legged friend willing to catch those curveballs for you."
"We may not always know the WHY," Victoria acknowledges. "But we can rely on the fact that there is a reason."
This is where she gets into the religion part. No face-licking here.
"A reason to keep pushing forward wherever we may be in life," Victoria writes. "A reason that is a lot bigger than us."
"I trust that God & the Universe are showing me the way," she expresses.
Victoria concludes: "& just remember.. we all have a story."
We will be very interested to hear her defense against the allegations against her. At the very least, it seems that some former friends really hate her.
Take heed, Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph, and all Bachelor couples of the future. Take heed. Time passes. Life happens.
Love - and fame - fades. Reality sinks in. And hits hard.
That sounds cynical, we know. But it's also factual.
Although things have looked up lately, The Bachelor stars have not exactlty had the best track record when it comes to love lasting.
How bad is it? Simply by virtue of being together a year later, Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins ranked among the top success stories.
And they still broke up! That says it all right there.
Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi broke up after not even half that much time after a relationship many felt was doomed from day one.
As for the latest case study we saw play out this year?
Let's just say Colton and Cassie are up against major obstacles (if you saw the recent season, you get it), and the odds aren't great.
What about for Peter Weber, the man who will hand out the roses in 2020 following a windmill-filled ride on The Bachelorette?
His prospects aren't much better, although we're guessing there will be ample opportunities to hook up inside historical structures.
Take what you can get, and don't get upset. Check out the full Bachelor relationship rankings by length and see how they've fared:
1. Brad Womack
2. Brad Womack (Take 2)
3. Travis Stork
4. Jesse Palmer
5. Aaron Buerge
6. Bob Guiney
A lot of people wanted Mike Johnson, and producers strung him along for ages before officially selecting Peter.
Now, they're finally admitting what many Bachelor fans selected all along: they planned to choose Peter the whole time.
We niow know that Mike Johnson was in secret talks to be the Bachelor.
While he's an outspoken fan of Peter, he would have liked to have had the role.
He is looking for a wife, and he knows how much the franchise's first black male lead would mean after about two dozen seasons without.
Mike has also been vocal in advocating for other racial and ethnic minorities to be represented on the infamously white series.
And fans? Well, fans found Mike charming, and were a little surprised to see him passed over.
E! News asked the right questions and got the right answers when it came to ABC's true intentions.
"Peter has always been their guy," an insider has revealed.
The source explains their reasoning: "He’s older, he as a career, and he has a great backstory."
"He can definitely carry a show," the insider assesses.
We don't disagree about the description of Peter ... but does that really make him a better contender than Mike?
Let's look at ABC's alleged reasoning, item-by-item.
Peter is not actually older than Mike.
I'm too old for Common Core, but I'm pretty sure that Mike's 31 is more than Peter's 27. Four more, even.
Mike also has a solid career as a portfolio manager.
And what exactly is wrong with Mike's backstory? He's an Air Force veteran who's been to more than two-dozen countries.
So what does that inside source mean by all of this?
Peter may not be older than Mike -- he's not even older than Dean Unglert.
Perhaps by "older," they simply mean that the show tends to pair male leads with younger female contestants, because our culture is weird about gender.
Now, Peter does have a career, obviously. This sounds more of like a must-have box that producers just checked off.
The line about his backstory may just be another standard requirement.
Which means that none of the causes listed explain why Peter rose to the top instead of Mike.
However, there's one person who can explain why Peter found himself at the front of the line.
Hannah Brown's most famous moment from her entire season had nothing to do with her final dude, despite plenty of drama.
It was all about Peter even when he wasn't on screen.
See, the two of them "f--ked in a windmill."
Hannah would later go on to reveal that it was not one round of sexual intercourse -- but four.
The idea of a couple dozen beautiful women romancing him, each dreaming of getting some windmill time of her own, could make for great TV.
That said ... the Bachelor Nation cannot help but notice that this means yet another season of zero black men in the leading role.
After 5 seasons, that would be suspicious. By Season 24t? It's impossible to deny that producers see casting a black man as a "risk."
After Rachel Lindsay's season saw conspicuously lower ratings, it's clear that producers fear that part of the audience is simply too racist.
That is awful. We wish that we were better than this.
Just because you go on a reality TV show to find love, it doesn't mean you will.
The Bachelor and its many spinoffs have been on the air for over seventeen years.
It may have seemed like these Bachelor Nation stars found love on one of the ABC shows, but they're with someone different today.
Have a look below.
1. DeAnna Pappas
2. Ali Fedotowsky
3. Bob Guiney
4. Byron Velvick

6. Juan Pablo Galavis
I have something alarming to tell you. Someone on The Bachelor: Australia may have ulterior motives for being on the show. According to conspiracy theorists, Kristen Czyszek, 24, may not be on the show solely to compete with 27 other fame-seeking women to win the heart of Matt Agnew, a 32-year-old working at a bank who claims he’s an astrophysicist. She may actually be a spy planted by China to promote… tourism. Please, hold those gasps and refrain from striking that gong that plays every time Kristen is on camera. There’s more.
Evidence to this is she currently works as a China researcher (whatever that is), she often mentions her love of China and speaks Mandarin whenever possible on the show. This strange foreign dialect shattering Australian eardrums has caused fans to begin digging up more info about Kristen. They found that she spent time in Beijing as a communications associate for the shadowy organization known as AustCham which helps Australian investors navigate China. The Daily Mail did some digging as well and found that Kristen first made her way to Asia as an exchange student at the University of Taiwan. The connections run deep. Taiwan, as many know, has a super friendly relationship with China. They’re practically bffs.
Then there’s her Instagram. Unlike other contestants, it’s mostly empty and looks to be created specifically for The Bachelor. And, get this, in addition to English captions it also features translated Chinese captions. Now ask yourself. Why would a girl who’s lived in China for the past 2 years where Instagram is blocked and who probably has a lot of Chinese friends do something like this? It just doesn’t add up!
For their part, The Bachelor producers have purposely set out to combat this red scare by turning Kristen’s love of China into a punchline by playing gongs and “oriental bamboo flute music” whenever she appears.
The post Kristen of ‘The Bachelor: Australia’ Is a Chinese Plant or Something appeared first on The Blemish.
It may not have the best track record when it comes to lasting love connections, but The Bachelor franchise does not lack for eye candy.
Let's face it, we have seen some truly gorgeous humans over a decade and a half on ABC. This is true on both sides of the gender coin.
No wonder it was a tough choice at the end for Arie.
Remember that? He didn't go about it very well, to put it mildly, but a lot of people would likely be somewhat conflicted in his position.
Fast forward a year and, well ... Colton Underwood had no such qualms about within whom he desired to bust the inaugrual nut.
Uncomfortable imagery aside, here are the 35 hottest women of The Bachelor - some of whom became The Bachelorette.
For good reason. Obviously, this is subjective, but that's what makes it fun. See if you agree or if you think we're crazy ...
35. Kaitlyn Bristowe
34. Raven Gates
33. Tenley Molzahn
32. Caelynn Miller-Keyes
31. Courtney Robertson
30. Corinne Olympios
Colton Underwood did not propose on The Bachelor finale last night.
But it wasn't the marital status about which most viewers were curious anyway.
It was a different sort of status they've focused on all season long.
Forget the bare ring finger on chosen suitor Cassie Randolph, most viewers were for more honed in this week on the bulge in Colton's pants.
Did Cassie help alleviate the blood rush via a round of intimate penetration? Or is Underwood perhaps waiting all the way until his hopeful wedding day?
In other, far less complicated words: IS COLTON UNDERWOOD STILL A VIRGIN OR NOT?!?!?
We'd never harp on something so personal unless The Bachelor itself had not been so consumed all season long by Underwood's underwhelming record if bedroom activity.
We've never judged him for it. We've just remarked on it.
Heck, Chris Harrison himself as Colton about the whole virginity thing on the live Bachelor after-show, considering Underwood and Randolph spent a night in the Fantasy Suite after getting back together on the finale.
Colton said he would not reveal the answer one way or another.
But Harrison came right out and said he'd take that non-response as a yes, he and Cassie got it on, sexual intercourse style.
And now we're pretty certain Colton has also come right out (hehe, come right out...) and admitted the same.
Why else would he share a photo of himself and Cassie IN BED on his Instagram page?
Wrote Colton as a caption to this intimate image:
Whatever I write will never fully articulate the feelings I have for you. You are the most incredible person whom I have ever met, you have the kindest soul and the sweetest heart.
You changed my life for the better and made this year the best year of my life. I can’t wait for our adventures ahead... I have my best friend. I have my girlfriend. I have my future fiancé. I have my future wife.
But most importantly I have you. Let’s do this thing they call life... together... forever. I love you.
Cassie, who clapped back at a bit at trolls on her own Instagram page, also shared a photo of her and Cassie swapping spit yesterday.
Here it is:
Wrote Cassie in her own sweet caption:
Colton, you truly have my heart. Walking into this experience, I honestly wasn’t sure that true love could come from it. It hasn’t necessarily been the easiest road to get to where we are, but if that’s what it took to get here, then every single twist and turn has been undeniably WORTH IT.
The last 4 months, just focusing on “us” have been amazing and you have become my best friend. You have shown me the purest, strongest love that any girl could ask for.
You jumped a fence, took a risk, and challenged the “rules” to fight for us. I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel to have you by my side. I am so excited to see what is next for us in this new phase of our “journey”...
I’d jump a thousand fences for you and “like, I know, I KNOW” that I love you more than words, point blank.
As a postscript, Randolph added: you still give me butterflies.
These two do seem very much in love, but you know we need to ask:
Do you think Cassie and Colton will get married?

We know a couple things that were NOT discussed during this week's Women Tell All special, which aired six days prior to The Bachelor season finale:
- What it was like to have sex with Colton Underwood, since the star has never done this deed.
- What it's like to be head over heels in love with Colton, since it seems like every other suitor has left the show of her own volition due to a lack of strong feelings.
This second point isn't literally the case, of course, but just this past Monday, betting favorite Cassie Randolph chose to walk away rather than risk a proposal from Underwood.
What does Cassie think now of her decision?
What do other women think of Colton and their experience overall?

5. See! Look!
6. What About Onyeka and Nicole?
The Bachelor aired a few light-hearted moments on January 28, but a bulk of this unique episode was dedicated to a very serious subject matter.
During her one-on-one date with Colton, Caelynn Miller-Keyes opened up about having been sexually assaulted in college.
It was a raw and honest and upsetting conversation, though one that certainly captured the attention of all viewers.
We admire Caelynn for telling her story in this manner.
How did Colton react? What else transpired this week? And who was sent home?

If you've been following The Bachelor Spoilers, you know who wins Colton Underwood's heart and who flops.
But a number of fans were shocked, angry, and defensive at one contestant's words.
Did Demi Burnett insult Colton Underwood, Tia Booth, Becca Kufrin, and Aly Raisman all in the same breath?
As Colton affirmed in a very recent interview, Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman was his first real love.
Some members of the Bachelor Nation and even the Bachelor Fam took issue with Demi Burnett's words on this week's episode of The Bachelor.
Because they interpreted what she said, as you can see in the video we included, as an attack on Aly.
Are they right? Was Demi badmouthing Aly (and Tia Booth)?
Let's take a careful look at Demi's words and find out.
"I think Colton will realize he needs a girl in his life that is more bold and confident," Demi said.
"And," she continued, she believes that Colton needs a girl who "will take a bit more of a dominant role."
"I think that Colton is looking for a girl that can take charge and take control," Demi speculated.
"Even if he, like, doesn’t know that he’s looking for that," Demi admitted. "I think that that’s what he needs."
That is arguably a little presumptuous or a little sexy.
But it's not like she was telling the camera that she wants to peg him. So why were her words controversial?
The controversy arose from what she said here:
"I totally think that Colton’s past relationships, they weren’t very aggressive girls," Demi characterized.
"They weren’t very dominant girls," she claimed. "And they didn’t work out for him for a reason."
"I’m the only one who challenges Colton," Demi stated.
"And," she concluded. "I excite him and I make him nervous."
The Bachelor Nation did not like the sound of Demi's words at all.
"Um… what does Demi know about his past relationships?" one fan asked.
The tweet continued: "publicly both Becca and Aly Raisman are amazing women that challenged him."
"Aly Raisman is a strong, dominant goddess," asserted another.
Yet another fan wrote: "Demi is clearly wrong af."
"Demi can’t say that Colton has never dated anyone as bold or confident as her," noted another.
That fan continued: "When Aly Raisman helped to take down one of the biggest sexual predators this world has ever seen."
Dr. Larry Nassar was sentenced to life in prison, and Aly was one of the women who bravely came forward to testify about his monstrous sexual predation.
Tia Booth is Colton's other most famous ex.
Taking to Twitter, she clapped back at the perceived insult.
"I scared him into dating me for 3 whole days," Tia said in response to Demi's words.
"So," she continued. "Idk what’s more dominant than that."
That's either a good point or a decent joke, but we're not sure which.
We do have to say that, perhaps, Demi was saying that she is the only one of the current contestants who challenges Colton.
That is not to say that we agree with her. That is just how we interpreted her meaning.
Demi is right that some people prefer more assertive guidance from their partners.
Others very strongly do not.
Assuming what another person needs is not always the wisest move.
Even so, Demi definitely made herself a little more interesting.
Villain or misunderstood, even if she doesn't win Colton's heart, she could end up being a hit with the Bachelor Nation.
Colton Underwood's time on The Bachelor is just getting started, but already, production insiders are spilling the tea on this season's outcome.
In fact, it looks we already know which lucky ladies will make it to the final four.
Obviously, major Bachelor spoilers lie ahead, but if you haven't picked up on that already be warned:
Scrolling further will result in knowledge of who receives Colton's final roses.
There are some surprises on this year's list, but fans who have been watching the virginal former football star and his interactions closely will probably be able to predict at least two of the final four.
So without further ado, here are Colton's quarter-finalists (according to Life & Style):
This one is unlikely to shock anyone.
Hannah received the first impression rose, and she and Colton seemed to hit it off the moment they locked eyes.
If you're taken aback that blogger Hannah makes it to the final four, there's a good chance you flunked chemistry in high school.
Little bit of a surprise here, as Tayshia has already stirred up a bit of controversy this season.
She stunned some viewers when she revealed that she got divorced after just 18 months of marriage in 2017.
Many assumed that virgin Colton wouldn't go for a woman who's been down the aisle before, but apparently, he's not as judgmental as some Bachelor fans.
This one's also not much of a shocker.
Caelynn may have turned off some viewers when she wore her Miss North Carolina sash on night one.
But she was also the first to snag a kiss from Colton, so it stands to reason that she'd make it far in the competition.
And what would a final four be without a villain?
Depending on what kind of Bachelor fan you are, this is either the biggest surprise of all -- or it's utterly predictable.
Cassie has been annoying her castmates since the first night, but as longtime Bachelor viewers know, contentious types have a history outlasting their rivals.
We'll leave it up to you to decide if Cassie's staying power is the result of Colton's decisions -- or the show's producers.
So there you have it.
Your the four women who Colton will find most alluring this season.
Now your months ahead of your friends in the debate over why Cassie should have been kicked to the curb the first time she interrupted!
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham have achieved the near-impossible.
The couple has actually gone from The Bachelor to... the altar!
Will Arie and Lauren last a lifetime? It's too early to say.
But they've already accomplished what few twosomes who got together via this franchise have accomplished before them: an actual exchanging of vows!
As documented by Us Weekly, Arie and Lauren got married this weekend in Hawaii.
“Ever since we’ve gotten together, we wanted to fast-forward to this day,” Luyendyk told this tabloid, adding:
“It’s been a year. That’s kind of crazy ‘cause I remember a year ago we were doing ‘happy couples [weekend on The Bachelor]’ and talking about getting married and wanting to do that, even last year, so it’s awesome that the day is finally here.”
He's not wrong.
It's been quite a journey for these reality stars.
Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham met while filming season 22 of The Bachelor last year.
But their courtship both ended and then started again amidst controversy.
This is because the former race car driver proposed to Becca Kufrin during the season finale.
However, he later had a change of heart, broke up with Kufrin in front of ABC cameras... and decided he wanted to be with Burnham.
After shattering Kufrin's heart into a million pieces, Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham got engaged during the live After the Final Rose special in March.
“I made some bad decisions but the best decision was running back to you,” the real estate agent said during his proposal, continung as follows:
“I truly believe are my soulmate. I’m ready to face this life with you and all that comes with it. I love you so much.
"I wanted to do this in front of everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago.”
In November, meanwhile, the famous couple took fans by surprise when they announced they were expecting.
We've since learned they are expecting a girl.
“We are so excited,” the former ex-Bachelor told Us Weekly last fall. “It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”
Referencing his child's gender and his now-wife, Arie added:
“I’m definitely excited to see Lauren and her together, and I think it’s gonna be so adorable.
"Everything’s so new, so we’re buying parenting books...
"There’s just so much that we don’t know, and I think learning together and experiencing this together is gonna be a lot of fun.”
All eyes of Bachelor Nation will now hone in on Arie and Lauren to see if their love truly lasts.
For now, though, as mentioned previously, they've already defied the odds by tying the knot.
"To say it's been quite a year would be an understatement!" Arie recently wrote on Instagram as the calendar flippe.
"Lots of firsts and many more to come! Thank you for all of your love and we can't wait to share what is going to be the biggest year out of our lives in 2019!"

If you've been following The Bachelor Spoilers, you already know Colton Underwood's choice -- and so much more.
But even if all that you've seen is the season premiere, you got the impression that Hannah G will go far this season.
She certainly got Colton's attention. But who is she?
Back in October, we reported that Hannah Godwin made a good first impression on Colton Underwood.
That was, quite frankly, an understatement. We didn't want to spoil things too badly.
Now, it's out in the open: Hannah received Colton's coveted First Impression Rose.
It's more than just a compliment.
The men who received the same honor from Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin each ended up engaged to them.
Even without that statistic, it's a great way to indicate that Hannah rose above the rest and caught Colton's attention.
But ... who is she?
Hannah has obvious good looks and bajillions of professionally shot photos of her on the internet.
However, she does not consider herself to be a "model" -- not exactly.
As she explains on her website: "I consider myself to be Hannah."
Hannah is someone "who happens to like the creative aspect of social media [and] modeling in general!"
She describes herself as a content creator, which certainly sounds accurate.
That is a label often associated with writers and vloggers, but it can certainly apply to Hannah.
Hannah is a southern gal, hailing from Birmingham, Alabama.
And she has the Country music video credits to prove it.
She has appeared in music videos by Darius Rucker, Thomas Rhett, and others.
She is also the face of the popular online retailer, Red Dress Boutique, which fans may recognize from Shark Tank.
The brand was featured on that show in 2014.
So if Hannah looked familiar to you, that's why.
With over 163,000 followers on Instagram, Hannah is no stranger to fame.
Going on The Bachelor is going to attract some new fans, to be sure, but the experience should be familiar.
Hannah is also no stranger to the Bachelor Fam.
As we reported last fall, Hannah is close friends with Danielle Maltby.
It's pretty safe to say that she was as prepared as anyone can be to compete for Colton's affections.
Some fans cannot help but wonder if Hannah is already familiar with one of her fellow contestants.
Hannah Brown -- that's right, Hannah B -- is also from Alabama.
In fact, Hannah B is Miss Alabama.
Then there's Annie, who is a recent graduate of University of Alabama.
That said, fans don't have a lot to go on, and merely being beautiful women from the same state doesn't mean that these ladies know each other.
If so, however, there could be some real drama.
Keep your eye out.
Hannah's charm and looks were enough to make a solid first impression with Colton.
But first impressions aren't everything.
She'll need to stay on her toes if she wants to be the center of Colton's world for the rest of the season -- and beyond.
Hannah is definitely one to watch, though.
Colton Underwood is a virgin. Did you know that?
ABC continued to hype this fact about its Season 23 star on the three-hour premiere episode Monday night, which featured Colton kissing two women and sending home seven more.
"I’m the first virgin Bachelor and it’s crazy to even think about that,” Underwood said early on. “I couldn’t be more hopeful and excited.”
Did his 30 suitors feel the same way, however?
How did they approach the fact that he's never slid his throbbing unit inside of any private parts?
