It’s not that crazy. One captivating Bachelor fan theory suggests that Peter Weber ends up with his producer Julie LaPlaca after the finale. His final three contestants are Victoria Fuller, Hannah Ann Sluss and Madison Prewett, but viewers are convinced the big twist will be that he’s currently with the behind-the-scenes babe. The idea came from Reddit user Krallie, and there are some interesting clues. Keep reading to find out more. Caution: Spoilers for the season 24 finale are below, continue at your own risk!

The 28-year-old has been teasing that the ending of his season cannot be spoiled. “Obviously every season is unique in its own way, and mine’s definitely unique, and I couldn’t have expected it to go the way it did, but it’s real life,” he previously told E! News. The pilot’s quotes have really made fans think outside of the box. Cue: romance with a producer.

On February 19, Peter and Julie were spotted at The Stonehaus Winery in his hometown of Westlake Village, California, enjoying the afternoon with the reality stud’s mom, Barbara. This is not the first time that the producer has appeared to be very close-knit with the Bachelor Nation star’s family. Julie also spent New Year’s Eve with the Weber crew, and they all rang in 2020 together in Times Square in New York City.

Usually, after filming, the newly minted couple must stay out of the public eye, per the show’s rules. If Peter and Julie were together, it seems unlikely that they would be galavanting around town together. However, perhaps their romance is so unlikely that they thought they could fly under the radar?

The show employee shared a photo of herself from the fun night, which featured Peter in the background. “This is really cute, Jules. I approve,” former Bachelorette star Hannah Brown commented with a heart emoji. The two ladies appear to be extremely close, so the Alabama beauty could have simply been referring to the smiley pic. It’s important to note that since Julie also worked on season 15 of The Bachelorette, she has known Peter for almost a year through the franchise.

There are a few other clues sprinkled around social media. Julie wore a Seahawks hat (Peter’s favorite team), Chris Harrison suspiciously popped in to film something at Peter’s house mid-December (after the show had wrapped) and even the vice president of ABC has participated in the theory.

“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! I don’t know how we’d ever top that though! But, it is crazy,” Robert Mills told Entertainment Tonight.

As far as Peter’s mom crying and begging him to “bring her home” in the trailers for this season, there is an explanation that involves Julie, too. After filming, she went on to travel around Sydney, so she would not have been in Los Angeles while Peter was home at that time. It’s possible that Barb wanted her son to go get the actual girl he fell for. Hmmmm …

Our heads are spinning from this theory, but we’re kind of here for it!
