The “Bachelor” Peter Finale Recap – The Timeline of What Went Down, Theories Throughout the Season, The BS We Saw Last Night, What I’m Hearing Now, Peter’s Brother Going Off on Madison, & Clare’s Guys

Ok I’m gonna use this page here to just list off every rumor I heard this season, none of which I ran with. But first let me address the two things I told you I would address yesterday. First, there was this one:

Didn’t end up being true, but, what I was told was Peter and Hannah Ann’s engagement actually didn’t happen in Australia. That they’d gone somewhere else and done it. Which when I heard it, thought it could actually make sense of Peter saying “my seasons is gonna get spoiled and there’s a reason for it.” So when this was told to me, I was like, “Hmmmm, maybe because they went somewhere else other than Australia, that’s why Peter thought I wouldn’t find out.” Good thing I didn’t run with that since it wasn’t true.

Then a few weeks ago in a column, I specifically told you I was hearing a rumor that, if true, would make me throw my hands up in the air. That source was the one who told me Clare was gonna be the Bachelorette AND they added that there was truth the Julie producer rumor and they had been hooking up. So now with everything coming out, I can’t even say that part is true. But when I was told that, they said that Peter was gonna come out with Julie on the ATFR last night, which didn’t happen. Although, it certainly seems now like it’s possible. No proof of anything, but when it comes to Peter now, I seriously can’t rule anything out.

As for this tweet…

…unfortunately he isn’t on the cast list, so he’s not doing it. No need to report anything else, but just know he’s not on the show.

Ok, here’s a laundry list of all the “rumors” I heard this season in regards to who Peter was with, when, and all sorts of craziness. Well, now some of it might not be so crazy. Get ready people, I’m telling you, Peter’s philandering over these past 3 months is gonna start getting out.

-The Tik Tok Bowl Video – while it looks like that actually could’ve been true now, I’m still told it wasn’t. Was told Hannah Ann was Facetiming with her brother and talking about her eventual move to LA, not Peter.

-Peters Family Follows Kelley on IG – well, yeah, they do. And the only one. And Kelley was there last night at the show, introduced in the beginning, then never mentioned again. Lets just say ever since Super Bowl weekend (just days after he ended his engagement to Hannah Ann), there have been rumors swirling Peter spent the weekend with Kelley and they slept together. I don’t know if we can rule those out anymore. I mean, she’s definitely not pregnant like some assumed, but, where there’s smoke there is certainly some fire. And hell, you know Barb would approve of it. Look what she wrote under Kelley’s post last night:

-Hannah Ann Using Peter’s Buddy Pass To Fly and See Him – another one that was never proven, but again, I was told that didn’t happen either. Would’ve given too much away and they wouldn’t be that stupid.

-Hannah Ann & Peters Venmo Both Private – I never looked into this one, but I guess it’s possible it could’ve been true.
Peter Defended Madison on Nicks Podcast – I mean, I can’t remember when that exactly happened in terms of a date, but, clearly she was in the back of his mind.

-Peter in Early Season Podcast Gives it Away – On Rachel and Becca’s podcast before the season started, everyone was convinced he picked Madi because in a word association game, they asked him to describe his “final one” in one word, and he said “Rose,” so everyone thought because Madi’s middle name is Rose he gave it away. Clearly that was wrong since he wasn’t with Madi and was engaged to Hannah Ann when he did that podcast.

-Victoria Fuller – Someone in the reality TV world DM’ed me and swore up and down that Peter and Victoria Fuller were in Thailand together on Valentine’s Day. Like, would not let it go and told me over and over they saw them. Which wasn’t even possible because I knew both Peter and Victoria’s location at the time.

-Peter Is With Someone Not From the Show – That one came up a lot this season and again, people SWORE to it that they heard through pilots at Delta that he picked someone not from the show. Ummmmm, well, that didn’t happen.

-Hannah Ann Followed Peter All Season and Madi Didn’t – Well, Peter followed neither of them all season, so it’s really impossible to read into something like that and make it so definitive.

-Messages on Madi’s Venmo Accounts – This was my favorite one, and most recent one which ended up being total garbage. People leaving money and tagging with “For Peter and Madi’s wedding,” as if that’s some sort of proof. Peter and Madi are barely dating, there is no wedding, and there is no wedding date set for people to buy gifts for.

I cannot stress this enough. You are going to start seeing stories of Peter with other women over these last few months, you’re gonna see stories about how last night was a complete joke, Peter and Madi aren’t even together, they did it for show, Peter is with Kelley, Peter is with Julie, Peter is with some other women – you’re going to hear it all. One thing I do know now is this season was an absolute dumpster fire and I believe nothing that I saw last night when it came to Peter and Madi. Maybe that’s why Barb acted the way she did, even though it was the wrong move personally, but, this is not going to end well for Peter.

    Darn it, as much as I am well aware how they’re not compatible and Peter’s an idiot, I just wish they’d stick together just to stick it to evil Barb.

    Come on, Steve! Where is your post on the break up. I give you credit. You called the break up before this weekend. No way was Peter going to rock the family boat. This whole thing reminded me of the Prince Harry/Meghan Markle fiasco. When a lot of other people warn you about someone, it is wise to listen, otherwise you risk blowing the family apart. Let’s hope the Weber family can heal the rift. After all, Peter still has to share the common areas of his parents’ house with them.

    I’m leaning toward believing Steve’s theory that Peter & Madi never really were together and that they made it look that way just for the finale. Pete certainly didn’t look like man in love. I really hate that Barb got her way!

    So Peter and Madi broke up? Madi was brought in just to save face. Peter’s mother did not have to react the way she did on national TV. She could have kept her mouth shut for few hrs. It was not about her.

    For Peter to have a happy ending he needs to move out and away from his controlling family and do some growing up. Good luck finding another woman now since the whole country knows about his family situation.

    @kabuki Say whattt?? Peter is nothing like Harry. Harry is actually in love with Megan and he is protecting his family from the evil press.

    Peter will never get another girlfriend with any hint of opinions again with Barb around. Peter is weird. He loses interest on a girl the moment the chase stops. He needs therapy.

    The #TeamBarb people digust me.

    Not one thing I’ve seen yet, NOT ONE, of the reasons why they support that despicable woman, is rooted in any kind of fact. It’s just all slurs and attacks on Madi’s character.

    Kinda of interesting that a couple of weeks ago we get Rachel on to talk about all the hateful people and then the next week, we get mega-doses of it in Barb.

    The Barb supporters are wrong simply because they are condoning her boorish behavior. She could still hold the opinions she did, and have handled it better. That is the issue. She was mean and didn’t need to be. You can express concerns without personal attacks. And damn, her son has issues because of her.

    Pete and Madi had no chance, not just because of differences in life choices, but because of a wicked mother who was hell bent on nuking the relationship. Time for Peter to cut the umbilical chord and get to a therapist because he needs to figure out who he is without that horrible and controlling parent telling him how to live.

    And for all the Barb supporters, I saw where she’s gone to a tabloid magazine and done an interview and continues to bash Madi. And Peter’s brother is also still bashing her. Yet Madi isn’t running and doing interviews bashing the Webers for treating her so horribly. When I read Peter’s Instagram post about their decision not to pursue the relationship, I didn’t take it that they broke up because they were never really a couple. They probably reunited for the ATFR just so that it wouldn’t look so bad for the show.

    Pete’s bother is a POS. I cannot believe he’s attacker her the way his is. He is definitely his momma’s boy

    @dogmomma, Barb is the typical controlling nightmare. The moment she doesn’t like you, she cuts you off and launches a smear campaign.

    Yes, she would be any woman’s worst nightmare as a mother-in-law, or is that Monster-in-Law??
    She continues to disgust me as she tries to stay relevant in the news. Her behavior is repulsive. Now she’s trying to get Kelly to go out with Peter. All of the girls this season should now be thankful that they don’t have to deal with her.

    “Who does that to their own son?”

    Quite possibly a mother who is thoroughly ddisgusted and ashamed by her son’s actions, choices and overall behavior on national television?

    While part of me thinks it would have been better to have restrained herself, there is another part which was glad to see Barb both call out Madison for her actions, and Peter and Madison as being a terrible match.

    I don’t think Madison is evil incarnate, but I do not buy into her being mature and grounded either. Given her responses and apparent lack of accountability and respect on stage, as well as Barb’s comments that there was more to their interaction which was not aired, the timing of her virginity announcement, her not-an-ultimatum-actual-ultimatum, and her vacillating decisions, Madison came across to me as a prototypical, angst-ridden teenage girl. She has a lot of growing up to do, before she is anywhere near ready for a successful adult relationship.

    Lastly, although it certainly could not have helped, I doubt that Peter’s and Madison’s final breakup had much of anything to do with Barb or the rest of his family. Certainly no more so than Madison’s father and family.

    With its terrible bachelor, dramatically immature women, and all the transparent tampering by production, this was a terrible season. I thoroughly hated and enjoyed it, and I will never watch again… at least until next season!

    PS: Thanks for the spoilers!

    But Barb could have saved her nasty attitude and comments for when she wasn’t on camera. Honestly, as viewers we don’t get to see the whole picture, so we don’t really know what happened behind the scenes unless we worked in production. It’s unfair to place blame on someone with only a small part of the story. But people are criticizing Barb because we (the viewers) watched her show a really nasty attitude toward a young girl that she clearly hates. That isn’t taking the high road. She should have just grounded Peter for a month after he got home, and maybe made him do extra chores around the house as punishment. She came across as a very bitter woman on TV.
