ABC Exec Responds To Rumor Peter Weber Ends Up With 'Bachelor' Producer

ABC's "Good Morning America" - 2020

On every season of The Bachelor, host Chris Harrison promises viewers more drama and plot twists than ever before. While that doesn't always prove to be the case, there's a popular Reddit theory suggesting Peter Weber ends up with one of the show's producers rather than any of the contestants. Now that would really make Pilot Pete's season finale the most dramatic one yet.

The producer in question is Julie LaPlaca, who has worked on previous seasons of the mega-popular dating show, as well. The theory really gained traction after the two were photographed together on New Year's Eve. Julie shared a photo of herself in Times Square and fans quickly spotted the back of Peter's head in the photo.

Peter's dad (also named Peter Weber) shared a photo of a family dinner on New Year's Eve. Producer Julie is seated next to Peter at the dinner. The photo's caption reads: "New Years Eve lunch with the gang at Carmine’s."

The theory picked up so much steam in the past few days that an ABC executive actually commented on the rumors. “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!" Rob Mills, the network's Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming told Entertainment Tonight. "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. 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.”

According to reality TV spoiler expert Reality Steve, however, there's no truth to this theory. As fans of Bachelor Nation most likely know, Reality Steve is almost never wrong about how the seasons of both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette end. "Gonna make this as simple as possible for every1 since it’s all I get asked now," Reality Steve tweeted. "It’s garbage, there is absolutely nothing to this, it makes zero sense & people are desperately grasping at straws bc the ending isn’t out yet. Hope that clears things up."

Who do you think Peter ends up with on this season of The Bachelor?
