Peter Weber is all but officially confirmed as the next Bachelor.

Earlier this year, the 27-year-old pilot placed third in the race to winning the heart of season 15 Bachelorette, Hannah Brown.

And now he looks set to take, well, the pilot’s seat in the brand new season of the Bachelor.

A TMZ photographer snapped up footage of pilot Pete as he was moving through LAX with a film crew in tow.

In the video, the reporter asks: ‘Sorry, but I gotta ask – does this mean you’re the new Bachelor?’

Weber chuckles nervously and responds: ‘Don’t ask me, man. No comment.’

The rest of the video features pilot Pete walking around the airport taking selfies with fans.


Pageant queen Hannah Brown ended up choosing Jed Wyatt over Tyler Cameron.

During the finale, Jed then got down on one knee and proposed to her, telling her: ‘I don’t want to go another day of my life without you being all mine.’

She responded: ‘I’ve been praying for this moment for a long time. I’ve been praying for you.

‘You’ve supported me, you’ve loved me, you’ve challenged me, you’ve moved me and it’s made me love you so, so much. And I am in complete love with you,’ she said.

But in a shocking series of events and only two days after the show ended, it was revealed Jed was already in a relationship with someone else before coming onto the show.
