Every season, Chris Harrison seems to claim this season of The Bachelor is “the most dramatic yet.” This time he might just be right.
Sure, Peter Weber’s chapter of The Bachelor has been marked by lots of drama (Hannah Brown! Alayah! Tammy!), but there’s a brand-new theory floating around the internet that’s a real doozy. The Reddit theory purports that the 28-year-old pilot doesn’t end up with one of his many female suitors. Instead, it argues that Weber ultimately professes his love for Bachelor producer Julie LaPlaca. Wait, what?
Let’s break it down: Each Bachelor/Bachelorette and contestant is assigned a personal producer upon arriving on set. They support the contestant or Bachelor/Bachelorette and also make sure they’re creating opportunities for really good TV. LaPlaca is one of these producers in the franchise and she’s worked on both Brown’s and Weber’s seasons. That said, she has a close relationship with Weber. But, when photos of her and the Weber family celebrating a New Year’s Eve lunch surfaced, fans definitely had some questions. (Scope the pic below.)
