By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/20/2020
Bachelor spoilers revealing nearly all the details about how the rest of Peter Weber's The Bachelor season will unfold have emerged -- including spoilers revealing which bachelorettes make Peter's Final 4 hometown dates, who The Bachelor star's Final 2 women are, and if his Final Rose Ceremony features an engagement.
[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: Do not proceed unless you want The Bachelor season starring Peter Weber spoiled for you. This article contains spoilers revealing all the available details on Season 24 of The Bachelor, including Rose Ceremony decisions and the ending of Peter's journey to find lasting love.]
Reality TV World has compiled all the spoilers known so far about Peter's The Bachelor season based on Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone's spoiling disclosures over the last several months, which he has reported in hundreds of postings on Twitter and Instagram, as well as on his blog and podcast.
Carbone released many of the details about the new The Bachelor season -- which began filming in California in September and ended in Australia in November -- in real-time as filming took place, or shortly thereafter.
But the eliminations didn't help to cut down on any of The Bachelordrama, as a scandal called "Champagne-gate" broke out.
Kelsey and Hannah Ann feuded over an alleged stolen bottle of champagne.
Kelsey accused Hannah Ann of stealing her special bottle of champagne and opening it with The Bachelorstar, but Hannah Ann completely denied the accusation.

Kelsey didn't believe Hannah Ann was telling the truth, so she allegedly called Hannah Ann "fake" as well as "a b-tch" and a "princess." In turn, Hannah Ann vented to Peter about being "bullied" by Kelsey.
Peter naturally confronted Kelsey about allegedly bullying another cast member, but Kelsey would not take responsibility for such behavior. So did The Bachelorstar end up picking a side or did "Champagne-gate" fizzle out?
"The 'Champagne-gate' controversy continues to bubble... as Hannah Ann and Kelsey attempt to try and bury the hatchet but only succeed in making matters worse," ABC teased in a press release for Episode 3 of what The Bachelorviewers will see next week.
Peter attempted to have fun in light of all the drama, but he was forced to face one of his biggest fears head-on.
"Peter needs to confront his fear of falling for someone whose feelings aren't genuine early on and struggles with his rose decisions on The Bachelor," ABC wrote.
In next week's episode, The Bachelorstar will be shown embarking on one group date as well as a one-on-one date.
Victoria P. accompanied Peter on the season's second one-on-one date, according to Carbone, which took place on September 27. The couple reportedly paid a visit to the Canyon Club music venue in Malibu.
The pair also reportedly kissed a lot during their date, which included line dancing with a live audience and riding a mechanical bull.
Victoria P., whom ABC calls "appealing" and "exhilarating," apparently helped Peter forget the champagne debate and feud.
"However, as the two enjoy country line dancing together, she tearfully opens up about her heartbreaking childhood," ABC revealed.
"Will Peter find the personal drama off-putting or will it draw him closer to Victoria P.?"
According to Carbone, Victoria P. opening up to Peter just brought them closer together because she received a rose on her date.
Victoria also reportedly told Peter that she was falling in love with him.
And the group date -- which was filmed on September 28 -- was held at Cowboy Palace Saloon, a country-western bar and music venue in the Los Angeles area, Carbone reported.
Carbone explained the controversial The Bachelor bachelorette was Alayah, whom Sydney and Victoria P. allegedly teamed up against.
Peter reportedly asked Sydney to call out the name of the woman whom she had a problem with, and Sydney admitted it was Alayah.
"Peter confronts Alayah, she denies it, then [Peter] asks Victoria P. (who was friends with Alayah pre-show from Miss USA)," Carbone revealed on his Instagram.
"But Victoria P. tells him she thinks Alayah is a liar and manipulative. The whole pool party essentially revolves around Peter asking everyone their thoughts on Alayah."
More The Bachelor bachelorettes reportedly trashed Alayah when talking to Peter, which ultimately influenced the Bachelor's Rose Ceremony decision.
"Should he trust his heart or what he hears from the other bachelorettes? Will he still give her the rose or send her home -- and regret it?" ABC wrote in its press release.
Following the pool party, Peter reportedly eliminated four more girls at the season's third Rose Ceremony, and Alayah was one of them.
According to Carbone, Peter also eliminated Alexa, Jasmine, and Sarah at the Rose Ceremony that was filmed on September 29. (But Alayah reportedly returned to the show later -- so keeping reading for more details about that!)
Jasmine might've felt slighted because she reportedly didn't get to go on a date with Peter the week leading up to the Rose Ceremony. (Madison didn't receive a date either, but she got a rose).
It's unclear whether the third Rose Ceremony of Season 24 will actually be featured in Episode 3 of The Bachelor, however.
Peter's decisions took his count of bachelorettes from 19 to 15 lucky ladies.
As a result, Peter's Final 15 bachelorettes for Season 24 of The Bachelor reportedly were Deandra, Hannah Ann, Kelley, Kelsey, Kiarra, Lexi, Madison, Mykenna, Natasha, Savannah, Shiann, Sydney, Tammy, Victoria F., and Victoria P.
After the season's third Rose Ceremony taped, Peter and The Bachelor season's 15 remaining bachelorettes left Los Angeles and headed to Cleveland, OH, where they publicly filmed the season's third round of dates.
The Cleveland round of dates consisted of two on-on-one dates and a 13-on-1 group date.
Victoria F. received a one-on-one date in Cleveland on October 2, according to numerous social-media postings and videos from The Bachelor fans who attended the concert portion of the date, which featured a performance by country singer (and former Survivor castaway) Chase Rice at the Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, OH.
"They had the park to themselves for the whole day and went on rides earlier. They were surprised the crowd greeted them for the Chase Rice concert," Carbone tweeted on October 2.
However drama apparently ensued at the concert portion of the date as Victoria previously dated the singer and wasn't happy to discover The Bachelor producers had scheduled him to perform on her date.
According to Chase, he was duped by show producers and asked to perform on the date without knowing Victoria F. -- whom he acknowledges dating -- would be on it.
"They are sneaky," Chase told The Morning Toast hosts Jackie Oshry and Claudia Oshry in a November interview. "I didn't sign up for that. That's my problem with it."
Chase added at the time, "At the end of the day, they had a job to do, and I don't need to be a part of that. I mean, I went on there to promote my music, and that's all it should've been. It wasn't."

Victoria reportedly told Peter about her past with Chase during a later portion of their date, but she didn't share the details with the other women competing for Peter's heart when she returned to the bachelorettes' hotel later that night.
However, Alayah reportedly returned to confront Peter about how Victoria P.'s prior comments about Alayah were allegedly untrue.
After showing up and surprising Peter during the group date, Alayah convinced Peter to give her another chance and she reportedly participated in the date. Then, after returning to the show, she also told the other bachelorettes that she had seen reports that Victoria F. previously dated Chase during her brief time off the show.
(Given the concert portion of Victoria F.'s date with Peter was a public event, both the concert and Victoria F.'s relationship with Chase were widely spoiled on social media in real-time when the date was filmed in early October).
This reportedly resulted in a huge screaming match between Victoria F. and Alayah.
According to Carbone, Victoria F. felt Alayah had no right to tell the other women she had previously dated Chase, and she flipped out and went on an expletive-filled tirade.
The group date's flag-football game took place at First Energy Stadium, the home of the NFL's Cleveland Browns, on October 3.
The football game ended in a tie, Carbone reported, and all the women on both teams were allowed to attend the evening portion of the date.
The second one-on-one date in Cleveland occurred on October 4 and Kelsey was the lucky recipient of it. It included an old-school soapbox car derby race on a public street in downtown Cleveland.
According to Carbone, the evening portion of Kelsey's date with Peter included dinner on the Nautica Queen, a dinner cruise ship, and ended with a fireworks display.
Carbone has reported somewhat unclear information about what happened between Alayah and Peter following her return.
On October 6, Carbone tweeted out a recording of a mobile phone video that purportedly show Peter and Alayah talking outside a distant building and wrote, "Stuff went down, but ultimately this is Peter sending Alayah home before the rose ceremony."
However, in his November 27 podcast, he stated that after Peter decided to let Alayah return, The Bachelor star also gave her the Cleveland group date's rose -- which should have automatically ensured she'd survive the subsequent Rose Ceremony.
In a January 9 blog post, Carbone clarified that the season's other bachelorettes allegedly ostracized Alayah after she returned, feeling her return was unfair and that Peter's decision to give her the group date's rose was especially unjust.
According to Carbone, his sources have told him Alayah then decided she wanted to leave the show, however he is unsure how The Bachelor producers will present her exit.
"All I heard at the time was 'Alayah left on her own,' but I have a feeling it wonâ€™t be shown that way," he wrote in his blog. "[What I heard during filming] was that Alayah felt no one in the house was on her side, and after the Victoria F. incident, she just wanted out."
"At the cocktail party before the rose ceremony, Alayah and Peter talked and I have no idea if they're gonna make it seem like Alayah wanted to leave after she felt she was attacked in the house, or, if they're gonna make it seem like Peter changed his mind and told her she should leave because him giving her the group date rose when she came back caused too many problems."
Either way, Alayah did not make Peter's Final 12 bachelorettes -- who were reportedly Hannah Ann, Kelley, Kelsey, Lexi, Madison, Mykenna, Natasha, Shiann, Sydney, Tammy, Victoria F., and Victoria P.
That means that in addition to Alayah, the three other women who did not survive the Cleveland round of dates with Peter were Deandra, Savannah and Kiarra.
Prior to Alayah's second departure, Peter also reportedly brings Victoria P. and Alayah into a room to attempt to resolve their issues.
The Rose Ceremony reportedly took place on October 5 at the Hay-McKinney Mansion, a 20,000 square foot, Italian Renaissance Revival home in Cleveland that was built in 1911.
After visiting Ohio, Peter and his 12 remaining bachelorettes left America and began the international portion of Peter's love journey.
Peter's fourth round of dates took place in Costa Rica, where the pilot reportedly narrowed down his group of bachelorettes down to ten women.
Costa Rica is also where Peter suffered a "serious injury" while he was golfing during an off-day from filming, resulting in The Bachelor star needing nearly a dozen stitches and sporting a visible injury on his forehead for the reminder of filming.
Details on the season's Costa Rican dates are currently sparse, however Sydney and Kelley each received one-on-one dates while the show was in Costa Rica.
Peter reportedly sent two bachelorettes home at the round's Rose Ceremony: Lexi and Shiann.
The eliminations left Hannah Ann, Kelley, Kelsey, Madison, Mykenna, Natasha, Sydney, Tammy, Victoria F., and Victoria P. as Peter's Final 10 bachelorettes.
During this round, Mykenna, Sydney and Tammy reportedly were eliminated by Peter. In addition, Victoria P. allegedly opted to leave the show on her own.
"Victoria Paul and Peter talk and was told they were just on different pages," Carbone wrote in his January 9 blog post. "They mutually agreed to part ways, but again, I don't know how the show will choose to show it."
The specific reason why Victoria P. opted to leave the show has not been reported.
However, given Victoria P. was spotted arriving back at a Louisiana airport on October 17 and then seen crowning her successor at the Miss Louisiana USA 2020 state pageant on October 18, her Miss Louisiana USA obligations would appear to be the probable reason.
The eliminations left Hannah Ann, Kelley, Kelsey, Madison, Natasha, and Victoria F. as Peter's Final 6 bachelorettes.
Peter's sixth round of dates reportedly took place in Peru.
Kelsey and Natasha each received one-one-date dates during the cast's time in Peru, according to Carbone, and Natasha became the first Season 24 bachelorette to not receive a rose on her one-on-one date, eliminating her from the show.
In addition to Natasha, Kelley was also reportedly eliminated during The Bachelor season's time in Peru, which determined the four bachelorettes that received hometown dates with Peter.
Peter's Final 4 bachelorettes were Hannah Ann, Kelsey, Madison, and Victoria F., according to Carbone.
A woman who previously dated Peter many years ago, Merissa Pence, reportedly showed up at Victoria's hometown date in Virginia to warn The Bachelor star about Victoria's alleged scandalous past -- which allegedly includes several affairs with the husbands of some of Victoria's friends.
Merissa had reportedly spent several weeks trying to contact The Bachelor producers and make Peter aware of Victoria's history, and finally spoke with Peter during a public portion of Victoria's hometown date which featured Victoria and Peter enjoyed a Hunter Hayes concert together.
"She talks to Peter and tells him about Victoria and her past and that she's not here for the right reasons. [Merissa said something like], 'I want you to find your woman. This one isn't for you,'" Carbone said in his December 5 podcast.
A visibly upset Peter then reportedly brought up the allegations to Victoria later that day when they were standing outside of the house where Peter was supposed to meet her family.
"Peter actually never met Victoria's parents later on that night. They argued out in front of her house," Carbone said on the podcast. "They broke up."
However, Victoria reportedly visited Peter in his hotel room the next day and explained herself further, after which Peter apparently said he needed time to think and would reveal his decision at the Rose Ceremony.
(To read more about Victoria F.'s hometown date drama and many more details about her alleged scandalous past, click here.)
Carbone reported that Peter ultimately still opted to keep Victoria F. around after all the drama and instead eliminated Kelsey at the Rose Ceremony.
Peter then reportedly took off to Australia with his Final 3 bachelorettes -- Hannah Ann, Madison and Victoria F.
According to Carbone, Peter's Final Rose Ceremony was filmed in Alice Springs on November 17.
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."
So did Peter propose to Madison, Hannah Ann, or neither?
In fact, 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 believes it is possible Peter will get engaged on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose's live broadcast in March, and feels it is unlikely Peter has continued to date both Hannah Ann and Madison after the final Rose Ceremony.
Carbone is among those who currently believe the ending of Peter's season likely hasn't been filmed yet. According to Carbone, he can't spoil something that hasn'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.
If Madison turns out to be the winner, however, Peter may have gotten permission to pop the question later. Peter could have called Madison's father from Australia, for example, but Carbone is waiting for more details.
Is Hannah Brown maybe part of the ending? Did Peter reunite with her and reject both Madison and Hannah Ann?
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.
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."
Carbone apparently believes Peter is not single at the moment and is with Hannah Ann or Madison, even if he isn't engaged.
"It's not like we're thinking anyone outside of the final 2 are with him and he's deciding between 30 women. Now that you know 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.
"I just think the details of HOW he gets to that point, and everything it takes to get there, I don't know if I'll ever have every detail for you before it plays out. But I do think he's with someone based on everything I've heard, but it's a convoluted way to get there."
