The Bachelor viewers should apparently prepare for a dramatic ending to Peter Weber's upcoming season, as The Bachelor season will reportedly not conclude with "a normal ending" when it airs on ABC next year, according to newly-released spoilers information.
[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out any spoilers about the ending of Peter's The Bachelor season].
The Bachelor's Season 24 finale filmed on November 17 in Australia, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, and did not end a Final Rose Ceremony in which Peter rejected one of his Final 2 bachelorettes and proposed to the other one.
"In regards to the finale... I can say with about as much certainty as possible that this was not a normal ending this season," Carbone revealed in his December 5 podcast about the upcoming The Bachelor season, which premieres with a special three-hour event on Monday, January 6 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
"I can say that I'm very, very confident in saying [that] as we know, Hannah Sluss and Madison Prewett are your Final 2," Carbone said, referencing his prior late November announcement that Hannah, a 23-year-old from Knoxville, TN, and Madison, a 23-year-old from Birmingham, AL, were Peter's Final 2 bachelorettes.
The Final Rose Ceremony reportedly took place in Alice Springs, a small town located in Australia's Northern Territory and considered the capital of the Australian Outback.
"When I say it's not a normal ending, what I'm saying is this: the final day of filming for this season was Sunday, November 17 in Australia, which means if you live in the [United] States, Australia is 19 hours ahead of Pacific time and 16 hours ahead of East Coast... [So] it was still Saturday night into early Sunday morning here in the States," Carbone explained.
"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."
But just because Peter didn't get engaged at the Final Rose Ceremony doesn't mean the airline pilot's The Bachelor journey didn't end happily.
In fact, Carbone admitted he currently isn't 100% certain what Peter's relationship status is right now, or what it was when he left Australia and returned to America late last month.
"[That] is not to say that he might not be engaged now... That, I haven't found out yet. But what I know is on November 17 there was not Hannah shows up, Madison shows up, he dumps one and gets engaged to the other. Did not happen," Carbone clarified during the podcast.

"So that's the best I can do right now for the finale. That's where we're at. That leaves a lot of options out there, and just because it didn't happen on November 17, it doesn't necessarily mean it didn't happen still in Australia maybe a few days later. I don't know."
Prior to narrowing down his bachelorettes to only two ladies, Peter reportedly had three overnight dates with Madison, Hannah and the season's third-place finisher, Victoria Fuller, a soon-to-be controversial 25-year-old from Virginia Beach, VA.
As previously revealed, Peter's Fantasy Suite dates were filmed in Gold Coast, Australia.
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.
Gold Coast is about 1,600 miles apart from Alice Springs, where the finale was later taped.
Carbone reported last month Victoria had been wrapped up in drama and controversy duringThe Bachelor season's filming and Peter had been warned about Victoria's questionable past -- which allegedly includes several affairs with the husbands of women she knew -- during her hometown date; however, Peter ultimately chose to keep her around anyway.
"You can clearly see the storyline [late in] the season will be centered around, 'Will he or won't he end up with the girl that has a past and he's been warned about,'" Carbone teased in a tweet on November 4.
Peter's hometown dates with his Final 4 bachelorettes reportedly taped between October 27 and November 1.
Kelsey Weier, 28-year-old from Des Moines, IA, was eliminated in fourth place during a Rose Ceremony after taking the California pilot home to meet her family in Iowa on November 1, according to Carbone.
Season 24 of The Bachelorbegan filming on September 20 at the show's usual Malibu mansion, and according to ABC, Peter was introduced to 30 bachelorettes on Night 1.
Season highlights for The Bachelor's upcoming edition and the official list of Peter's bachelorettes will all be released by ABC at a later date.
