Peter Weber chose the women going to hometowns on Monday night’s (February 10) episode of The Bachelor: Kelsey, Hannah Ann, Madison, and Victoria P. But if one fan theory currently floating around the internet is correct, he doesn’t end up with any of them. Instead, he falls for a producer working behind the scenes.
A Reddit theory posted by u/krallie points to evidence that suggests Weber finishes the season hand in hand with a producer named Julie LaPlaca. For one, Weber and LaPlaca spent New Year’s together with each other’s families (according to tagged photos). Another tagged photo, per this Reddit theory, shows LaPlaca in a Seattle Seahawks hat (Weber is a fan). And in one pic of LaPlaca from New Year’s Eve in Times Square, Weber is reportedly standing in the background. Hannah Brown, who, remember, first dated Weber on The Bachelorette, commented on said pic, “This is really cute, Jules. I approve.”
But does this hypothesis have any merit? ABC is keeping mum on it—for now.
“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!” Robert Mills, ABC’s senior vice president of alternative series, specials and late-night programming, told Entertainment Tonight. “I don’t know how we’d ever top that, though! But it is crazy.”
He continued, “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.’”
As a longtime Bachelor fan, I approve this theory, but I’m also keeping it real. Peter Weber’s season, from the jump, has been dramatic, and there are several theories out there about who he ends up with. Women’s Health is convinced it’s Hannah Ann based on Venmo, people! Half the fun of being a Bachelor fan is indulging in these discussions (but with a good sense of humor).
Also, for what it’s worth, trusted blogger Reality Steve says there isn’t any truth to this producer rumor. So, as with most things Bachelor Nation, it looks as though we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
