[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: Stop reading now if you don't want to find out which bachelorettes make Peter Weber's Final 4 and the alleged drama that occurred during one of the pilot's hometown dates. This article also reveals Peter's Final 2 picks].
Peter's The Bachelor season won't premiere on ABC until January, however his hometown dates with his Final 4 bachelorettes were reportedly filmed between October 27 and November 1.
And while other spoilers have claimed that The Bachelor season won't have "a normal ending" when its finale airs on ABC in March, unprecedented drama also reportedly occurred while Peter was filming his hometown date with bachelorette Victoria Fuller, a 25-year-old medical sales representative from Virginia Beach, VA, on October 28, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
A woman who previously dated Peter many years ago, Merissa Pence, reportedly showed up at Victoria's hometown date in Virginia Beach 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.
"Merissa is not a contestant on the show, but she showed up there because she was asked to by production -- although when she got there, they didn't tell her to do anything," Carbone said in his December 5 podcast.
"So 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.'"
Peter was reportedly visibly upset after Merissa told Peter -- who was still supposed to meet Victoria's parents and family with her later that day -- that Victoria was bad news and had ruined marriages.
The conversation reportedly impacted The Bachelor star so much that Carbone says Peter actually brought up Merissa's claims later that day while he and Victoria were standing outside of the house where the family meet-and-greet was supposed to take place, and things got ugly.
"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."

Carbone insisted Peter and Victoria "were done" in that moment in another podcast he released late last month, however Victoria then reportedly decided to visit Peter in his hotel room the next day, resulting in Peter giving the controversial bachelorette another chance.
"Victoria went and saw him the next morning before he left to go on his next hometown date. [Peter] clearly kept her around," Carbone said on his December 5 podcast.
Carbone alleges Kelsey Weier, a 28-year-old professional clothier and former Miss Iowa USA 2017 from Des Moines, IA, was eliminated in fourth place at the Rose Ceremony and then Peter took off to Australia with his Final 3 bachelorettes.
"I guess he told her, 'Let me make my decision at the Rose Ceremony,' and then he ended up keeping her over Kelsey, and Victoria got to go to Australia," Carbone said.
Peter's Final 3 bachelorettes were reportedly Victoria; Hannah Sluss, a 23-year-old from Knoxville, TN; and Madison Prewett, a 23-year-old from Birmingham, AL.
Carbone offered more details on how Merissa ended up appearing on Peter's The Bachelor season and her participation in Victoria's hometown date in an October 29 blog posting.
Merissa, who allegedly dated Peter briefly back in 2012 when she was living and working in Los Angeles, told Carbone only goal for going on the show was to warn Peter.
"[Merissa] knows who [Victoria] is, what she's about, and all the stories... Merissa is not some scorned ex looking for revenge. All she kept telling me is 'how can we let Peter know?'" Carbone wrote.
Merissa reportedly first managed to reach The Bachelor producers in early October and was told to stand by.
The producers allegedly later told Merissa not to show up for the public portion of Victoria's hometown date, but then changed their minds at the last minute.
"Once Merissa showed up, no one from production talked to her. She wasn't mic'd up, wasn't told what to do, wasn't told where to stand, wasn't told, 'Hey, Peter's gonna come talk to you after the dance,' etc. Nothing," Carbone wrote on October 29.
"She showed up with friends and sat and watched, not even expecting to ever see or talk to Peter... After Peter and Victoria's dance, Victoria is taken away by producers to talk to them... Peter walks another way and walks by Merissa. She called out his name, he recognizes her, and they start talking."
Once Peter and Merissa started talking, producers reportedly ran over and started filming their conversation.
"Merissa then tells Peter about Victoria and what she knows. She's ruined marriages, she's a liar, she's a manipulator, and that she really thinks he deserves someone who's there for him, and Victoria is not it," Carbone wrote.
"This is the first Peter has heard of this news, says it was a huge buzzkill because he's had such a great time with her, but he thanks Merissa for telling him, they hug, and he leaves immediately with producers and gets into a car."
"Was told by others when he was walking away they saw 'after he talked to the blonde girl,' he had tears in his eyes," Carbone continued.
"After their talk, Merissa was never contacted by production, no one came up to her after their convo, and she left with her friends."
Carbone insisted Merissa was not trying to rekindle a romance with Peter -- that she just cares about the guy and thought he deserved to know the alleged truth.
At the time, Carbone predicted Peter would keep Victoria around because he wanted to have a Fantasy Suite with Victoria and a brief conversation with Merissa wouldn't be enough to deter him.
Carbone also further detailed some of startling and unflattering accusations he had heard about Victoria while The Bachelor season was filming in an October 28 blog post.
"I can honestly say in all my years doing this, I have never had so many negative stories and as many people contact me about one person than I have this season with Victoria Fuller. It's been unreal to be honest," Carbone wrote at the time.
"First email I received was back on Sept. 7th, two weeks before filming even began, and I was told Victoria is contestant and has a horrible reputation in the Virginia Beach area for, well, being with married men... Emails kept coming, and coming, and coming, and coming all saying the same thing."
According to Carbone, the emails all alleged Victoria had broken up several marriages.
"So I looked. And I found. And I'm not talking about this happening once, or even twice. The info I was receiving was talking about her having done this three or four times," Carbone wrote.
"The wives of the husbands that Victoria was having relationships with, were actually women Victoria knew and was friends with. Like, had attended their wedding... I personally was in touch with women whose now ex-husbands were involved in relationships with Victoria while still married, and both confirmed it to me."
Carbone added, "That is some next level bullsh-t and someone who doesn't give a flying f-ck about others. Her coming on the show is all about Victoria, what this show can do for her, notoriety, [Instagram] followers, etc."
In his December 5 podcast, Carbone said some friends of Victoria's have also contacted him defending her, slamming him with insults and saying he's wrong and misinformed.
"When Victoria talks about this, she's not going to say, 'Oh yeah, you got me!' Of course she's not going to admit that! But I'm telling you it happened, so [I'm] just going to butt heads with anybody who's on Victoria's side," Carbone said.
"If your argument is 'you're a loser' and 'your facts are wrong,' it's just like, 'Okay, then tell me what happened.' And none of them have been able to."
Carbone said Victoria's defenders have claimed the allegations she had affairs with married men and broke up marriages are "lies."
However, Carbone noted a couple of Victoria's friends have defended her by posting public social-media comments claiming that the men Victoria allegedly cheated with were "scumbags" and should getting blamed instead of her -- seemingly confirming the affairs actually did happen.
"Victoria's friends, if you're going to defend your friend, you might not want to admit everything I posted on October 28 happened... You're digging yourself a bigger hole... Victoria, you might want to get yourself some new friends," Carbone said.
Victoria's friends have also allegedly gone after Merissa's character and intentions.
"Victoria's friends are coming after Merissa saying... she's doing this because she's a bad person, she has a bunch of fake friends, all she wants to do is hang on to the popular people. That's why she went after Victoria. She's jealous of Victoria... she wants her 15 minutes of fame... She has ulterior motives," Carbone shared.
According to the spoiler blogger, Peter ended up eliminating Victoria in third place after their overnight Fantasy Suite date in Gold Coast, Australia.
Victoria also apparently still holds a grudge against Merissa.
After filming wrapped, Victoria reportedly had a confrontation with Merissa at a Virginia Beach bar on November 30, which was the first time the two ladies had crossed paths since Victoria's October 28 hometown date.
Victoria walked by Merissa, called her "a f-cking loser" and was later kicked out of the bar, Carbone reported.
Once Victoria was outside the bar, she continued to vent her frustrations and then was asked again to leave the premises.
And that's not the only drama Victoria was involved in on Peter's The Bachelor season!
Victoria and Peter had a one-on-one date earlier in the season in which country singer Chase Rice serenaded them at a concert.
It turns out Victoria had actually dated Chase before the show and so Peter's date turned out to be very awkward for both Victoria and Chase, who were upset at The Bachelor production for setting that up.
