By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/20/2020
Bachelor spoilers revealing the spoilers The Bachelor fans want to know about the ending of Peter Weber's 2020 season of The Bachelor have emerged -- including spoilers revealing who Peter's Final 2 bachelorettes are, how the ultimatum Madison Prewett allegedly gives Peter turns out, who the Bachelor picks and ends up with in the finale, and if Peter is engaged.
[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers revealing how Peter Weber's 2020 season of The Bachelor ends and will spoil who Peter picks and ends up with.]
Reality TV World has compiled all the spoilers currently known about Peter's The Bachelor season based on Reality Steve blogger Steve Carbone's spoiling disclosures since the 2020 season begun filming in late September, which he reported in his blog and podcast as well as hundreds of social-media postings on Twitter and Instagram.
This includes new spoilers The Bachelor spoiler sleuth reported earlier this month, and new information he posted on his Instagram account earlier this week.
In addition, we have also incorporated all the spoiler information ABC has released about Peter's season of The Bachelor in its own press materials about the season.
Carbone released many of his The Bachelor spoilers for Peter's 2020 season -- which wrapped filming in Australia in November -- in real-time as filming took place, or shortly thereafter.
In the next episode, Peter will be shown traveling to Australia, where he will enjoy overnight dates with the women he's falling in love with.
But first, Peter has a talk with Madison in Los Angeles, CA.
The Bachelor's latest episode ended with Madison pulling Peter aside after the Rose Ceremony held in Los Angeles, CA, following the women's round of hometown dates.
Madison creates "a dilemma" for Peter
ABC revealed in a press release for The Bachelor's upcoming February 24 episode Madison will "present a dilemma" to Peter.
Carbone reported February 17 on Instagram Madison told Peter that she was a virgin and explained her stance on the overnight dates in general. Madison presumably addressed her concerns about Peter sleeping with the other two women.

"I don't believe an ultimatum is given, but Peter is well aware of where Madison stands in regards with sex during the overnights," Carbone shared.
But based on the preview that aired following The Bachelor's latest February 17 episode, Victoria accused Madison of giving Peter "an ultimatum" after all.
"I'm sorry, that's disgusting," Victoria said. "Putting him in that position is so unfair. Are you kidding me?"
Madison presumably recognized the next time she may see Peter was after he already had his overnight Fantasy Suite dates with Hannah Ann and Victoria F. and wanted to make sure she shared her feelings with The Bachelor star before those dates.
"It is kind of a black-and-white situation," Madison told Hannah Ann in the preview clip. "These are the expectations I have for myself. These are the expectations I have for our relationship."
Peter goes on his Final 3 Fantasy Suite dates
Peter's overnight Fantasy Suite dates with his Final 3 bachelorettes were filmed in Australia's Gold Coast.
Gold Coast is a coastal city in Australia's eastern state of Queensland that is famed for its long sandy beaches, surfing spots, theme parks, and elaborate system of inland canals and waterways.
Carbone reported Australia hosted both of The Bachelor season's remaining date rounds, with the season's Final Rose Ceremony eventually occurring in Alice Springs, a small town located in Australia's Northern Territory that is considered the capital of the Australian Outback and is about 1,600 miles from the Gold Coast.
"Peter faces a real predicament as he tries to navigate Madison's challenge," ABC revealed.
For the first time ever, Peter's Final 3 women lived together in one hotel suite during the Fantasy Suite round.
Hannah Ann received the first one-on-one date of the week and they explored the Gold Coast's beautiful beaches during the day by riding jet skis.
Hannah Ann gave Peter all the reassurance he needed on their date, and Peter found himself confident he was falling in love with the bachelorette.
Victoria and Peter then shared a romantic helicopter ride to Morans Falls, but Victoria was still in her head. ABC teased Victoria was "on the brink of another meltdown."
And then Madison hoped to enjoy her Fantasy Suite date with Peter, and they were challenged to climb one of the tallest residential buildings in the world.
But the date didn't go perfectly, as Peter was trying to get past the roadblock of Madison's personal demand.
"After an agonizing week of waiting, Madison finally gets her chance to fully open up to Peter, but how will she react when she finds out about his other two dates?" ABC teased.
Madison finds out Peter had Fantasy Suite sex
Once in Australia, Madison finds out through Victoria F. and Hannah Ann that at least one of them slept with Peter, "and Madison doesn't take it well at all," Carbone wrote February 17 on Instagram.
"When exactly this conversation happens or how it comes about is unknown at this point. But Madison definitely finds out from the other two women first about Peter having sex."
This girl chat likely happened because they were all living together at the time of Peter's Fantasy Suites. It therefore makes sense Madison might've heard the news before Peter had a chance to tell her himself.
In the preview that aired on February 17 on ABC, Madison and Peter were shown appearing to enjoy a dinner during their Fantasy Suite date -- and that's when Madison dropped a bomb on him.
"I wouldn't be able to move forward if you have slept with the other women," Madison admits to Peter.
Based on a trailer that aired last week, Peter does acknowledge he slept with one woman already.
During the extended preview for the rest of Peter's The Bachelor season that aired on February 10, Peter tearfully confessed, "I don't want this to feel like it's just all about sex, but six days prior I was intimate with someone else."
According to Carbone, Peter slept with either Hannah Ann or Victoria F., or possibly both of them, during his overnight Fantasy Suite dates, despite his prior conversation with Madison.
Following Peter's overnight Fantasy Suite dates, Peter allegedly sent Victoria home in third place, leaving Hannah Ann and Madison as The Bachelor star's Final 2 women.
However, Madison's discovery that Peter had sex during his overnight dates reportedly derailed the rest of The Bachelor season.
According to Carbone, Peter's Final Rose Ceremony was filmed in Alice Springs on November 17.
In his early spoiler reports, Carbone reported Peter's season didn't have "a normal ending," meaning the Final Rose Ceremony didn't feature Peter rejecting one woman and proposing marriage to the other.
"I can say that I'm very, very confident in saying [that] as we know, [Hannah Ann Sluss] and Madison Prewett are your Final 2," Carbone revealed in a podcast in December.
"On that Final Rose Ceremony day, it was not down to those two [women], he dumped one, chose the other, and they got engaged. It is not a normal ending this season."
Did Peter propose to Hannah Ann, Madison, or neither?
Carbone has admitted he currently isn't 100 percent certain what Peter's relationship status is right now, or what it was when he left Australia and returned to America in late November.
On his January 2 podcast, Carbone revealed that Peter did not get engaged to anyone at the season's Final Rose Ceremony and also did not get engaged to anyone before he returned home from Australia.
Carbone also said he believed it is possible Peter will get engaged on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose's live broadcast in March, but felt it was unlikely Peter had continued to date both Hannah Ann and Madison after the final Rose Ceremony.
Peter also made numerous pre-season interview comments that many viewers believe suggested his season continued beyond the final Rose Ceremony and he hadn't filmed the ending of his The Bachelor season before it premiered on ABC in January.
"There's a reason that no one is going to find out the ending, and I'm very, very excited," Peter told People in an interview before the season premiered.
Carbone was among those who believed the ending of Peter's The Bachelor season likely hadn't been filmed by the time the season premiered on early January. According to Carbone, he couldn't spoil something that hadn't happened yet.
On his January 2 podcast, Carbone also reported Peter did not receive a blessing from Madison's father to propose marriage during Madison's hometown date.
He noted however, Peter may have gotten permission to pop the question later. Peter could have called Madison's father from Australia, for example, but Carbone was waiting for more details.
According to Carbone's January 9 blog posting, "Peter's incessant stance of 'no one's gonna find out the ending to my season' I believe has more to do with the HOW of his season moreso than the WHO."
Madison quits after learning Peter had sex
However, in his February 11 blog, Carbone reported that while he is still not completely certain whether Peter ended the season with Hannah or Madison, Peter's decision to have Fantasy Suite sex with Hannah Ann and/or Victoria F. resulted in Madison deciding to quit the show at some point before the season's final Rose Ceremony!
"What I can also report is what many people have suspected this season: Madison self-eliminates this season," Carbone wrote.
Exactly when Madison decided to quit the show remains unclear to Carbone.
"But again, I'm not sure exactly at what point this happens. We know it has to happen after the overnight date rose ceremony, because that's where Victoria F. is eliminated. But does it happen before she meets Peter's parents? It seems like it does, but I don't have confirmation on that," he reported.
"Another thing I can report to you, and reiterate again because I said this at the beginning of the season, is that Chris Harrison's speech to Peter on final rose ceremony day, is NOT to tell him Madison just left... that speech from Chris has nothing to do with Madison."
In addition, Carbone still remains completely unsure what happened after Madison quit the show.
"The other aspect about Madison's elimination becomes this: when she left, did she actually leave the country and go home, or, did she leave like [Cassie Randolph] did last season and take herself off the show, but was still there. My money is on she is still there, because I don't think they would send her home," he wrote.
Based on his prior knowledge that Peter's season didn't have "a normal ending and there's craziness on final rose ceremony day," Carbone believes the season definitely did not conclude with Peter having originally planned to pick Hannah Ann and just following through with that decision.
In addition, Carbone also pointed to Hannah Ann's presence at the final Rose Ceremony as evidence that Peter's mom most be referring to Madison in the repeatedly-teased season preview scene in which she is shown tearfully telling Peter "don't let her go, home to us."
"Why would she be saying that about Hannah Ann? SHE'S STILL THERE," he wrote.
According to Carbone, he believes the season's most likely ending is that Peter "chased" down Madison after she quit the show similar to how The Bachelor star Colton Underwood "chased" Cassie after she quit the show last year, but he remains uncertain if that's what actually happened.
"The guesses that 90% of you have had of 'Oh, well Madison leaves because Peter has sex and he chases her down,' yeah, that might be the gist of all this, but how it happens and when is still unknown," he wrote.
"When people have said 'chases her down,' what exactly does that mean? Where? Because we don't know for sure if she left Australia or was still 'there' even after self-eliminating. I keep coming back to this point of if Hannah Ann was the only woman still present on final rose ceremony day, and Hannah Ann was the woman Peter wanted, seems to me it's a pretty easy ending. He picks her, and they're together. I just don't see it happening that way."
However, Carbone also acknowledged Peter may have picked Hannah Ann.
"You might relate this to the Des/Chris ending where she was all distraught over Brooks, then moved on with Chris. Hey, maybe Peter does do that. I just don't believe that is the case this season. HOWEVER, since I don't 100% know who Peter is with right now, it's still a possibility."
Reality Steve's best guess is Peter picks Madison
At this point, Carbone admitted his best guess is that Peter is with Madison but the couple are not currently engaged.
"I have heard from numerous sources 'Madison is with Peter. They are dating but not engaged.' If you're holding a gun to my head and forced me to give you my opinion of how this all plays out, I'd say that would be my guess at this point. But that's just it. A guess," he wrote in his February 11 blog.
"I don't know for sure. If I did, I'd tell you. I'm telling you that that's what people have told me, but I haven't had the solid confirmation I need to 100% believe it. But yeah, if you're asking me what I think Peter's current dating situation is, I'd go with that."
"They are together, definitely not engaged, and they are working on their relationship because this definitely hasn't been easy on Madison from all accounts. That answer however doesn't explain how they technically even got to that point, which is why I've been so hesitant to even offer that up as opinion. Because I don't know how they got there."
Carbone cited numerous details he still doesn't know -- including whether Madison met with Peter's family in Australia before she quit the show, whether she appeared at the final Rose Ceremony and if so what happened, if Peter had to return to America to "chase" Madison, and when the "chase" would have occurred and filmed.
Could Hannah Brown maybe be part of the finale's ending? Did Peter possibly reunite with Hannah instead?
Unfortunately for viewers hoping for a reconciliation between the two, Peter reportedly did not try to reunite with Hannah B. at the end of his season, and she did not play any role in the ending.
"Hannah Brown has nothing to do with the ending of this season," Carbone wrote in his January 9 blog posting.
"I know people are still holding out hope, and I know you'll have questions about, 'Well how can he just shut off those feelings,' or 'are you sure,' and 'well what about this or this...' etc," Carbone continued in his blog post.
"All I can tell you and officially confirm today is that after you see Hannah and Peter finish up their convo on [Episode 2], she has nothing to do with the rest of Peter's season."
Carbone reported Hannah B. "doesn't show up at the finale," nor is the former Alabama beauty queen part of some dramatic twist later on this season.
"They're not secretly dating, nothing," Carbone insisted. "Sorry Peter and Hannah Brown fans. No dice."
Hannah also called Peter "bud" on Instagram and wished him luck in his journey to find a co-pilot after the premiere episode of The Bachelor, seemingly suggesting there's no romance between them now.
"Hannah Brown doesn't play any role in his final decision, and I can solidly say Peter is not single, this is a Hannah Ann/Madison discussion," Carbone wrote in his January 9 blog.
What about spoiler rumors claiming Peter ended up with The Bachelor producer Julie LaPlaca?
Recently, a Reddit user began circulating a theory that Peter ended up with Julie LaPlaca, who has served as one of the producers of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise since 2014.
The source of the theory was very weak and consisted largely of a few photos Julie publicly shared on her Instagram showing her posing for photos with Peter, as well as a photo showing her enjoying New Year's Eve lunch with some of his family before Peter appeared on ABC's New Year's Eve programming.
However, the theory went viral after it was breathlessly promoted (and then re-promoted) in click-bait articles published by Hearst Digital Media's Cosmopolitan and Women's Health websites, among others -- resulting in Carbone recently speaking out to clarify the spoiler theory is "garbage" and not correct.
"Gonna make this as simple as possible for every1 since it's all I get asked now: It's garbage, there is absolutely nothing to this, it makes zero sense & people are desperately grasping at straws bc the ending isnâ€™t out yet," he tweeted on February 8.
"The last three seasons, what we learned is that the season is not really ever done," Robert explained when addressing speculation the season's final ending has not been filmed yet.
"We wrapped filming and yes, technically we're done, but we're not really done because they're living their real life, so it doesn't really end until the finale airs. You never know what's going to happen."
"I do know [the ending], yes," Robert told Nick Viall during a recent appearance on the former The Bachelorstar's The Viall Files podcast.
"It's pretty crazy. I'll say that... This one is pretty cool."
When asked how many people know how Peter's season ended, Robert replied, "Not many. Less than 50, maybe. Something like that."
Robert elaborated, "But it's not people who work on the show. It's the people that spread [the news] to other people... You tell one, especially somebody that then loves to tell people."
Nick admitted to Robert on his podcast he's "fascinated" no one really knows how The Bachelor is going to play out.
"It's wild that Peter is saying this with confidence, because when Peter says this, my first reaction is, 'Oh, what a young pup who doesn't realize how [it works].' But no one seems to know!" Nick said.
"No one knows, and the thing for him is that he stayed very tight-lipped about everything," Robert said.
"I think it's just important to him that everybody," Robert began.
"I could tell!" Nick interjected.
"When I saw him -- I've said this before -- most leads want to tell, like, 'I need to tell someone. Can I tell you? You're in the group; you're in the club,' so to speak, you know? And I'll be like, 'Sure, you want to tell me? I don't care?'"
