Peter the Pilot Is Your Next Bachelor

Peter Weber, the man who famously had windmill sex four (!) times with Hannah Brown during her Bachelorette season, has officially been crowned as the next Bachelor lead. His unveiling occurred during the Bachelor in Paradise finale this evening, with Weber — a 28-year-old pilot for Delta — excitedly confirming his proverbial “journey” to “find love.” (Amazingly, there’s only one Hannah and one Lauren competing for him!) He also beat out fellow handsome alums Tyler Cameron and Mike Johnson for the gig.

The California-born Weber was sent home on Brown’s season after those multiple windmill trysts in Greece, ultimately finishing in third place with a good edit. (His parents, lest you forget, were very amused by his stamina.) While his presence was largely unassuming and drama-free throughout the season, he was plagued with one bit of bad press: His ex-girlfriend did an interview claiming he unexpectedly broke up with her after a year of dating to find fame within the franchise. “He interviewed for a reality dating show while simultaneously planning a future with me,” Calee Lutes, a model, claimed of their relationship. “Also, if all of this wasn’t bad enough, I’ve had multiple people reach out to me and tell me that he was seeing other women while we were exclusive.” Weber has never publicly addressed Lutes’s claims.

Per the normal cycle for Bachelor Nation shows, the 24th season of The Bachelor will premiere sometime in early 2020. We look forward to ABC trying to secure the music rights to “Come Fly With Me” in the meantime.
