By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/07/2020
The Bachelor spoilers revealing nearly all the key details about the rest of Peter Weber's season have leaked out -- including Peter's Rose Ceremony choices, hometown dates, Fantasy Suite dates, Final 2 bachelorettes, and if the Final Rose Ceremony will include an engagement.
[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: Stop reading now if you want to be surprised by what unfolds on Peter's The Bachelor season as it airs on ABC. This article contains spoilers for the rest of Peter's season, as well as a timeline of the spoilers].
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 three months, which he has reported in hundreds of social-media 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 on September 20 and ended on November 17 in Australia) in real-time as filming took place, or shortly thereafter.
The Bachelor's 24th edition premiered Monday, January 6 with a bang.
Peter met and became acquainted with 30 beautiful bachelorettes in Night 1 during the premiere, including Hannah Ann Sluss, whom the Bachelor gave his first Impression Rose to as well as a few kisses, and Madison Prewett, who got the season's first one-on-one date with Peter.
But Peter's reunion with The Bachelorette's Season 15 star, Hannah Brown, took over the premiere episode, as it became clear both singles still had lingering feelings for each other.
Hannah appeared to regret her decision to get engaged to Jed Wyatt, and she all but said she wished she could have another chance with Peter, who had finished her season in third place.
Peter thought he had moved on from the relationship, but seeing Hannah again brought back old feelings and left the airline pilot feeling more confused than ever.
"I can't help how my heart feels. I look at her and I just don't want to stop looking at her and I want to just kiss her and just have had all this work out. And it didn't. And I know it didn't," Peter explained to cameras after his conversation with Hannah.
"I just feel like such a jerk because I have such awesome girls here expecting to meet someone that was truly ready to have this work for them as well. And -- I don't know."

The Bachelor's Season 24 premiere ended with a "to be continued" cliffhanger, and Episode 2 is expected to pick up right where Peter and Hannah left off.
"Hold your breath! Peter and Hannah B... [continue their] conversation full of unresolved feelings for one another. Will Peter invite Hannah to join the other women? Or will he continue on his new quest to find love?" ABC teased in a new press release for the second episode of Peter's season of The Bachelor.
"How will he face the nine women who were on the group date, anxiously awaiting his decision?"
Hannah and Peter's conversation does not end with Hannah joining Peter's The Bachelor season, according to Carbone (however, given ABC viewers saw her continue competing on Dancing with the Stars in Los Angeles throughout the fall while Peter was traveling the world filmingThe Bachelor, viewers hardly needed inside spoiler information to figure that out).
Meanwhile, while Hannah and Peter were talking on the group date, Peter's nine bachelorettes had been instructed to come up with sex stories, either memories or fantasies, to share with a studio audience.
According to Carbone, Peter didn't go through with the "sex stories" portion of the group date when it was filmed on September 24 -- which was also Hannah's 25th birthday! -- because of his mixed-emotions following the conversation with Hannah.
"The women who have left their everyday lives to pursue Peter's love might be in for a shocking twist. Will they believe him if he does decide that he is really ready to move on?" ABC wrote in its Episode 2 press release.
Carbone reported Peter admitted to his bachelorettes it was tough seeing Hannah again and so he was not in the right head space to continue on with the "sex stories" portion of the group date.
As a result, the daytime portion of Peter's group date reportedly got canceled -- but the pilot still met up with the women later on and went through with the evening portion of the group date.
Peter and Hannah "finally get closure... and [Peter] moves on to the night portion with the women," Carbone reported on Instagram.
When the date was being filmed, The Bachelor producers told the group date's studio audience members the "sex stories" performances had suddenly been canceled because Peter was feeling "very sick," Carbone reported.
Sydney ultimately won the group date's rose during the night portion of the date, reportedly.
When the cocktail party preceding the season's second Rose Ceremony began, a feud that came to be called "Champagne-gate" went down.
"Kelsey has plans on popping a special bottle of champagne with Peter only to see her dream scheme blown up by one of the frontrunners, setting off a conflict," ABC teased.
"Who will survive and get a rose and who gets swept away in the drama?"
Carbone reported Kelsey Weier had brought a two-year-old bottle of Dom Perignon on the show planning to share it with Peter at some point, but instead, Hannah Ann ended up with the bottle and got enjoy it with the Bachelor.
"Unbeknownst to [Kelsey], knowing it would cause drama, production gave the bottle to Hannah Ann to open with Peter," Carbone wrote in an Instagram spoilers posting.
"Kelsey walked in on them and flipped out thinking that Hannah Ann stole her champagne bottle on purpose. Hannah Ann didn't and she said she didn't know it belonged to Kelsey. Peter ends up pouring it over himself."
"Champagne-gate" has reportedly turned into a joke among cast members, however, as Kelsey and Hannah Ann have been cracking jokes about it post-filming on social media.
"So it wasn't a major rift," Carbone concluded.
Peter reportedly decided to send three women packing when his second Rose Ceremony was filmed on September 25, narrowing his group of 22 ladies down to 19 women.
The three women forced to say goodbye at this point in Peter's journey were Courtney Perry, Lauren, and Payton.
During his second round of dates in the Los Angeles area, Peter reportedly embarked on two eight-on-one group dates and his second one-on-one date.
One group date featured eight bachelorettes strutting their stuff on a star-studded runway as models in a fashion show for Revolve, the online clothing and accessories retailer.
"Jealousy reigns supreme and the claws come out," the network teased of the competition.
Alexa, Deandra Kanu, Hannah Ann, Kelsey, Lexi, Mykenna, Natasha, and Victoria Fuller were the eight bachelorettes on the fashion show group date, according to Carbone.
The fashion show reportedly took place at the Academy LA nightclub, and ABC has revealed the runway show was judged by original Queer Eye star Carson Kressly and former America's Next Top Model judge and supermodel Janice Dickinson.
Carbone also reported Revolve executive Raissa Gerona served as a third judge.
However, some drama also apparently ensued during the group date.
"The insecure runner-up has a complete meltdown, but will she have the last laugh? The evening ends with an explosive after-party, where rivals try to get the better of one another with Peter and more than one woman is left in tears," ABC teased in the Episode 2 press release.
Hannah Ann won the runway show competition (unsurprising given she's a professional model), according to Carbone, and Victoria F. was the runner-up.
Victoria F. reportedly wore sexy lingerie for one portion of the competition and motioned for Peter to come kiss her, which he did.
Hannah Ann wore a wedding dress for one portion of the competition. She also kissed Peter and received a bunch of Revolve clothing for her win.
Kesley also apparently had some issue with Hannah Ann during the group date, Carbone reported.
The other group date featured in Episode 2 was held on September 28 at Cowboy Palace Saloon, a country-western bar and music venue in the Los Angeles area, according to Carbone.
Former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise bachelorette Demi Burnett was part of the group date, which included a pillow fight competition.
Based on its omission from ABC's press release, it appears the second episode of The Bachelor's 24th season will end with the round's second group date and not show the round's one-on-one date until the third episode.
Victoria Paul was reportedly the lucky bachelorette who received the season's second one-on-one date, which took place on September 27 and included a visit to the Canyon Club music venue in Agoura Hills.
After that, Peter eliminated four more girls at the season's third Rose Ceremony, taking his count down from 19 to 15 bachelorettes.
Peter reportedly sent Alayah, Alexa, Jasmine Nguyen, and Sarah home when the Rose Ceremony was filmed on September 29. (Alayah reportedly returned to the show later, however -- keeping reading for more about that!)
Peter's Final 15 bachelorettes therefore 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 was filmed, Peter and The Bachelor season's fifteen remaining bachelorettes left Los Angeles for Cleveland, where they publicly filmed the season's third round of dates.
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."
(To read more details about the Chase and Victoria F. encounter on Peter's date, click here.)
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 -- who was ousted back in Los Angeles and was Miss Texas USA 2019 -- reportedly returned to confront Peter about how Victoria P. -- who was Miss Louisiana USA 2019 -- had lied to Peter when she previously told him the two beauty queens were not friends (or something equally boring, the exact details of Alayah's outrage appear to still remain somewhat sketchy as of now).
After convincing Peter to apparently give her another chance, Alayah reportedly participated in a flag football group date in Cleveland -- and after returning to the show, she also told the bachelorettes that she had seen reports that Victoria F. previously dated Chase after she was eliminated in L.A.
(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 flag-football group date 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.
Since the group date was a giant 13-on-1 date, the Cleveland round of dates also featured a second one-on-one date.
The second one-on-one date 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 confusing 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 Alayah received the group date rose during the flag-football group date in Cleveland -- which suggests a scenario in which Peter apparently gave Alayah a rose, but then took it back and sent her home (again) before the Rose Ceremony.
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.
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 Peter reportedly sent two bachelorettes home at the 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.
The reason why Victoria P. opted to leave the show has not been specifically 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 likely reason.
The eliminations left Hannah Ann, Kelley, Kelsey, Madison, Natasha, and Victoria F. as Peter's Final 6 bachelorettes.
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 or Hannah Ann or not?
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.
