ABC divulged the names of 33 *hopeful* contestants on September 17, but not all the women got a chance to appear on the famed reality show. This has now become common practice for the franchise because it gives fans a chance to weigh in on their favorites. The same thing happened before Hannah’s season — three men were eliminated and only 30 guys appeared on night one. They officially announced the cast list on December 16. 

One thing is for sure: This season will be steamy. Peter and Hannah had amazing chemistry, and the pilot proved that he could bring the heat during their infamous overnight date in a windmill. During the show, the Alabama beauty said the pair had sex two times, but later revealed during After the Final Rose that they did the deed a whopping four times. Teasers for the upcoming season already show Peter confessing that he got “intimate” with one of the contestants. Get this man a Gatorade!

However, Peter has a lot more to offer than the physical. Hannah even admitted that it was hard to let him go because he was so incredible. “I knew I was going to hurt you, but I was also getting hurt too,” she explained to him after the season finale aired. “Because I was falling in love with you and that didn’t just go away when I say goodbye. It’s been really hard to watch everything. Everything we had was real, and the way I felt for you was real, and I know that way you felt for me was real. It’s so hard because in this position because you don’t know if you’re making the right decision, and I think I was scared I was letting go of the perfect guy.”

Of course, some fans are keeping their fingers crossed that Hannah and Peter rekindle their relationship after it was revealed that the Alabama beauty will appear on the new season. However, a source exclusively dished to Life & Style that chances of the two getting back together may be slim. “Once the show was over, there was interest expressed from her, and he just said, ‘I’m not going to !’” the source explained. “Peter was heartbroken when Hannah let him go. Her coming on The Bachelor would .”

Good luck this season, Peter! Keep scrolling to meet the hopeful contestants.
