- Peter Weber's season of The Bachelor premieres on January 6, 2020 on ABC.
- Reality Steve has been sharing the inside scoop on who Pilot Peter takes on dates and eliminations along the way.
- The winner of The Bachelor season 24 is currently unknown, but Steve revealed the final two women.
Peter Weber (a.k.a. Pilot Pete) is officially The Bachelor , and I've fully hopped on board (get it?) with this handsome fella finding love. Season 24 won't air until Jan. 6, 2020, but that doesn't mean you have to wait until then to learn (almost) all the juicy details and drama that's to come.
Thanks to Bachelor blogger Reality Steve , savvy internet sleuths, and spoiler Instagram accounts, there is news aplenty of Pilot Pete and all the ladies competing to become Mrs. Windmill Hookup Guy and move in with his whole family.
For the uninitiated, Reality Steve is a legend in Bachelor Nation. He has spoiled the ending of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and its various spinoffs for years. His spoilers are spot-on pretty much every single time. (Noteworthy exception: He pulled a 180 on his prediction for Hannah Brown.)
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. Do not keep reading if you don't want to know what happens during Peter's journey to find love on Season 24 of The Bachelor before it airs!
Hannah Brown paid ex Peter a visit.
It seems Hannah just can't stay away from the Bachelor mansion. Apparently, she pops by and has a chat with Peter (ya know, totally normal ex-GF and ex-BF behavior). Her main purpose appears to be freaking out the contestants, which she does very well, per Reality Steve . She also "rattles" Peter, and he cancels the group date.
Don't worry, this isn't a repeat of the "Fence Jump" heard round Bachelor Nation. Filming continues normally, as does Peter's journey with his ladies. As for Hannah, she beelines back to the ballroom, competing on Dancing With the Stars. "My heart has been completely focused on my Dancing With the Stars experience, and I had to give a lot of myself [to the competition]," she told Variety . "Doing Dancing With the Stars is a full commitment, so that has been the relationship that Ive been inwith the dance studio and just working my butt off."
Watch out for the pageant queens.
Per Reality Steve, the drama comes early and often, but it's of the "manufactured" variety. The beauty queens bring it on, a la the Caelynn and Hannah feud from Colton's tenure as The Bachelor. But this time, there are way more Miss Insert-A-State-Here among the cast.
And let me just say this: the pageant world is a messy, messy, messy place. You thought the Hannah/Caelynn bickering last season was bad, just wait til this season's shit storm rolls in. Manufactured drama, of course, but it will dominate the first few episodes... RealitySteve (@RealitySteve)
There were many pageant winners in the Bachelor mansion.
Peter has Miss Texas 2019, Miss Louisiana 2019, a Miss Tennessee contestant, and a former Miss Iowa 2017 all vying for his heart. They might have the inside track, too. Peter's mother, Barbara Figarola, was Miss Illinois World America in 1978, according to Pageantopolis.com .
Not everyone in the mansion has donned a sash and tiara, though. There are a handful of models, a former pro cheerleader, and a Price Is Right winner among the contestants.
Things got catty... and ratty.
Apparently, the Bachelor mansion actually transformed into a Mean Girls-esque high school this season, complete with cliques. Reality Steve tweeted , "Well, you have a group of girls in the house this season that dubbed themselves 'The Cats,' and the ones they didnt like, they called them 'The Rats.' Very mature, I know."

Peter gave his first impression rose to Hannah.
No, not that Hannah. Contestant Hannah Sluss (who, btw, is friends with Bachelor in Paradise star Hannah Godwin) receives Peter's First Impression Rose. She sticks around for most of the show and at least makes it to the final three on The Bachelor. Peter may even have proposed to her, but that's still unknown. (This is a good time to remind everyone that this would be a BFD because "no woman who ever received the first impression rose has ever 'won' the Bachelor," per Reality Steve . )
Peter went on his first one-on-one with Kelley Flanagan.
Timing is key for falling in love on The Bachelor, and Kelley got a head start with Pete. She went on the first one-on-one date with Pilot Pete (after winning a group date), Reality Steve says. And, of course, the date wasyou guessed ita plane ride. The date was confirmed by the Daily Mail , who released several photos of Peter and Kelley hugging and holding hands as they deplaned.
But here's the real tea about Pete and Kelley ( Reality Steve ): "I can confirm that in mid-August, she met Peter [Weber] in Malibu when she was attending a wedding. They hit it off I have no idea if they made out, slept together, etc. But now that its known publicly they are both aware of each other and just recently met, will be interesting to see if its brought up on the show."
Bachelor Pete got "intimate" with a contestant.
The first look teaser shows high-flying dates, plenty of tears, and a taste of the drama to come. "I dont want this to feel like this is all about sex," Peter says in the clip, "but I have been intimate."
Peter visited hometowns in the South and Midwest.
The final four women competing for Peter's heart were Kelsey Weier, Victoria Fuller, Madison Prewett, and Hannah Sluss. Each of these ladies had the pleasure of hosting Peter in their hometowns and bringing him home to meet their families. (Good luck impressing the rents, Pete!)
Victoria is looking villainous this season.
If you thought previous seasons had villains with shady pasts (ahem Jed Wyatt ), just wait 'til you meet Victoria. Multiple sources spilled all the tea to Reality Steve. Shes reportedly had affairs with multiple married men, some even married to her friends, and as a result broken up marriages.
(UPDATE): In the last 20 minutes I've heard of yet another person who was called by production to show up to today's date and confront Victoria, but then they told her they didn't want to bring her on. So it certainly looks like her past is going to get mentioned on the show. RealitySteve (@RealitySteve)
Peter won't be blindsided after the final rose, though. Thankfully, he gets an early warning during his hometown date with Victoria from one of Peter's ex-girlfriends. Reality Steve shared a full play-by-play of the dramatic hometown intervention. Essentially, Merissa Pence (Peter's ex) attends the public hometown date and catches Peter for a conversation. She tells him all about Victoria's shady past and why he deserves someone whos there for him.
Kelsey gets eliminated after hometowns.
Kelsey got to bring Peter home to meet her family, but that's where her journey came to an end. What exactly went down to persuade the pilot to pick the three other ladies is still unclear, but Kelsey was donezo after her hometown date.
(SPOILER): Kelsey was eliminated at the last rose ceremony. Your final 3 headed to Australia are Hannah, Madison, and Victoria. RealitySteve (@RealitySteve)
Peter doesn't end up with Victoria.
According to Reality Steve, Victoria isn't Peter's final pick. She does make it to the final three, and possibly the final two, before going home. You can all breathe a collective sigh of relief right now.
(SPOILER): While Victoria was on IG last night gaining 15k followers and reading all the comments coming in (deleting a lot of the negative ones of course), she was also sitting with her ex boyfriend, Brett. So since many of you have asked, no, Victoria didnt win this season. RealitySteve (@RealitySteve)
Prepare for an unconventional finale.
If you're expecting the last two women standing to do the usual dramatic walk to the proposal spot and final rose, think again. Peter's finale episode doesn't go down like any previous finales, according to Reality Steve. That could be one of the reasons why he's still deducing who receives Peter's final rose.
