After months of speculation, we finally know... Peter “Pilot Pete” Weber is the new “Bachelor”!
Pete shot to fame on Season 14 of “The Bachelorette” with Hannah Brown. The pair made headlines after she revealed they had sex in a windmill during their overnight date. The romance was short lived, however, and they split soon after.
The big news was announced on the "Bachelor in Paradise" finale, where Pete told Chris Harrison, “It's still hitting me right now, and I feel so grateful right now just to have this opportunity in front of me. I feel emotional right now. This is crazy. This is life-changing. I have truly, my entire life, looked forward to finding my girl, and that first person that I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with. … I have all the faith in the world that this can work for me, and I know it's going to.”
On Tuesday, fans also got their first look at the the 33 women who will be appearing on the show's 24th season!
