ABC Exec 'Can't Confirm or Deny' Theory That Peter Weber Ends Up with a Bachelor Producer
"There’s a lot of craziness, it’s a roller coaster," ABC executive Rob Mills said
This would actually be the most dramatic finale in The Bachelor history.
One option: none of them. A recent thread on Reddit posits that Weber, 28, actually ends up in a relationship with a producer from the ABC dating series named Julie LaPlaca.
The Reddit thread points out that Weber’s father posted a photo from New Years Eve of LaPlaca out to dinner on with the family in New York City. The thread also notes that LaPlaca has been tagged in photos while wearing Seattle Seahawks attire, which is Weber’s favorite football team.
With just a few weeks to go until the finale, Robert Mills, the network’s senior vice president of alternative series, specials & late-night programming spoke to Entertainment Tonight about what fans can expect from the finale.
“Well, I hate to get in the way of a good rumor, so I’m not going to confirm or deny about whether he ends up with a producer!” Mills said. “I don’t know how we’d ever top that though! But, it is crazy.”
“What we’ve seen about the finale over the years is that the ‘finale’ is really on that night when the show goes live,” he added. “There’s a lot of craziness, it’s a roller coaster, but I would say even now the roller coaster hasn’t ended, and it won’t end until after After the Final Rose.”
During Monday night’s episode, Weber and the six remaining contestants traveled to Lima, Peru, as the hometown dates loomed on the horizon. Weier and Prewett each received roses from Weber on their respective one-on-one dates, with him even telling the latter that he was “falling in love.”
Who didn’t get rose? Natasha Parker, whom Weber ended things with on their one-on-one date in Lima’s Plaza de Armas, and Kelley Flanagan, who was sent home during the three on-one date over Sluss and Fuller.
