Following weeks of rumors that Peter Weber had secured ABC’s spot as the next “The Bachelor” lead, the network is expected to finally confirm his casting on Tuesday night’s “Bachelor in Paradise” finale. Find out everything we know about his 2020 season so far!

Who Is Peter Weber?

For Bachelor Nation fans not in-the-know, Peter, 27, originated from Hannah Brown’s season of “The Bachelorette.” He was her third-place contestant and was eliminated after their highly-discussed overnight date. Outside of reality TV, Peter is a commercial airline pilot based out of Westlake Village, California.

Filming Dates

Peter’s journey to find love will begin on Friday, Sept. 20. According to Reality Steve, his first round of dates will all be daytime outings occuring Sept. 22-24 followed by his second rose ceremony on Sept. 25.

The second round of dates, for episode 3, will take place Sept. 26-28 and will reportedly all be “public dates.” After a third rose ceremony on Sept. 29, the blogger reports that the cast will “either stay in LA for episode 4 or go to some other U.S. city.” International travel is expected to begin in episode 5 with stops in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. After hometown dates, the overnight dates and finale will film in Australia in early November.

Peter’s Contestants

ABC has already released photos and a short biography for each of the 33 women competing for Peter’s heart. While Reality Steve claims some of the contestants will likely end up getting cut, he did share bios for 15 of them. Among the current cast members are two former Miss USA 2019 contestants, at least one social media influencer, a tax attorney, and a recently divorced flight attendant.

An Early Front-Runner?

While the season has yet to begin filming, the spoiler blogger has named Sarah Coffin, a 23-year-old from Tennessee, as a potential front-runner. “She could end up being the worst human ever and the villain of the show. I have no idea. I’d be surprised if that were the case, but I can’t see Sarah going home anytime soon. Would be really surprised if she doesn’t at least make hometowns. We’ll see,” he wrote on Tuesday.

Peter’s History With One Contestant

It isn’t uncommon for ABC to introduce their leads to some of their contestants ahead of time -- Hannah met several of her suitors during “The Bachelor” finale, after all -- however, rumor has it that Peter has already met one of his women off-camera. Reality Steve reported that Peter and Kelley Flanagan met in mid-August at a wedding in Malibu.

“They hit it off and she told him she was going to be on his season,” he wrote. “I have no details beyond that. I have no idea if they made out, slept together, etc. But now that it’s known publicly they are both aware of each other and just recently met, will be interesting to see if it’s brought up on the show.”

Premiere Date

So, when can Bachelor Nation expect to see Peter’s “The Bachelor” season? While ABC has yet to announce an official premiere date, past season release dates make it easy to predict that viewers can likely expect to see the new episodes in January 2020.
