For the primary time ever, the ultimate contestants stayed in the identical lodge room for Fantasy Suite week

Typically, how this week works for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is that the lead and their three or 4 finalists head to their Fantasy Suite vacation spot. Last yr Hannah Brown had 4 guys, whereas Weber has three ladies this season. Each contestant normally has their very own lodge room, and separate one-on-one dates. After these, the lead then sends a number of folks house in order that there’s two left for the finale and proposal. 

This season, all of this occurred besides the ladies needed to share a lodge suite with one another, which has by no means been performed. Fans, in fact, referred to as out how humorous the scenario was.

As one can think about, it grew to become sort of awkward (or it was at the very least edited prefer it was) as a result of they know what every date with Weber most likely results in. And in the event that they don’t come again that night time, they’ve a tangible reminder that the opposite individual was in Fantasy Suites with Weber. Spending the night time with the lead isn’t a assure, and the contestants usually don’t know what’s happening exterior of their very own dates. 

Chris Harrison shared that they did this as a result of Peter Weber has bother making selections

On the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast that premiered Feb. 25, host Chris Harrison shed some gentle on why all three ladies have been put in the identical lodge suite. “There are times when no matter how great you are – and you both were great bachelorettes – but you can’t get out of your own way,” he mentioned. “And that’s part of why you’re single. And Peter, for example, has trouble making decisions. I don’t know if you guys have noticed that.”

Harrison was speaking to the hosts, Becca Kufrin and Rachel Lindsay who have been each leads on The Bachelorette, in order that they’re fairly accustomed to this example. But Weber has confirmed his indecisiveness just about all season. “There are things that we do as producers that will force you into this uncomfortable zone and force you into making a decision,” Harrison continued. “Sometimes we do it for your behalf, sometimes we do it for the bachelor, the guys or the girls.”

Madison Prewett was one more reason why the three ladies shared a lodge suite

Plus, it’s not simply Weber that wanted just a little nudging, however Madison Prewett. She had bother coping with Weber sleeping with different contestants, and the episode left off on a cliffhanger: does she keep or go? 

“This situation was pretty extraordinary,” Harrison defined, referring to Weber and Prewett each struggling for various causes on every of their ends. “This was to force a situation that had to happen, and it had to happen this week because, if we get to proposal week, then this guy is really screwed and there’s no chance this works. We gotta figure this out and there’s really only one way to do it.”

Basically, Harrison and the producers determined that in the event that they observe “tough love,” as he referred to as it, and put all the ladies collectively, perhaps conversations would happen to maneuver issues alongside. And they did.  

“It was because of the double standard in the things that Peter was gonna deal with, we kind of needed the women’s perspective on this,” Harrison mentioned. “We needed Madison to face Victoria and Hannah Ann and have them express their emotions on this because, again, it’s just this guy and his perspective, and I don’t know if that’s the greatest thing right now.”

All in all, it did make for an attention-grabbing Fantasy Suites episode, contemplating Hannah Ann Sluss and Victoria Fuller didn’t recognize Prewett’s “ultimatum.” Next week, viewers will get to see what Prewett chooses to do and who Weber fights for in the long run.
