Although it feels like years have passed since The Bachelor finale with Peter Weber, it's only been a few months. Peter's season turned out to be a hot mess, with the the pilot first proposing to Hannah Ann Sluss, then breaking up with her to be with runner-up Madison Prewett. That didn't work out either, thanks to Peter's side-eye-queen of a mom, Barb, who wasn't welcoming toward Madison. And in a twist worthy of a worldwide pandemic, Peter spent time in quarantine with fifth place finisher Kelley Flanagan and the two announced they were dating!
ABC announced that the next Bachelorette wouldn't come from Peter's season as is usual, but surprised everyone by picking Clare, who would be the franchise's oldest Bachelorette lead at 39 years old. However, her season was unable to begin filming due to coronavirus and the usual May premiere date had to be delayed.
Bachelor fans got a tiny bit of consolation with a new spinoff series, The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart, but it really wasn't enough. Which is why ABC is gifting us with a blast from the past.
