Bachelor host Chris Harrison admits Peter Weber shares ‘intimate relationship’ with producer

THE Bachelor host Chris Harrison opened up about the “intimate relationship” Peter Weber shares with his producer, Julie LaPlaca.

Fans of the ABC reality show have a few theories about who Pilot Pete, 28, will end up with at the end of the season, but Chris, 48, is raising the likelihood of a particular one being true.

While chatting with hosts Kit Hoover and Mario Lopez on Access Daily, he shared insight into just how close Peter and Julie actually are.

He explained: “[She’s] an amazing, talented, smart producer that works for us, works on the show, so she’s with Peter and she’s with all of us.

“I’ll just say this, it’s an intimate relationship. You spend that much time together, we all get close.”

Before ending the conversation, Chris revealed that “sometimes those lines get blurred.”

Many viewers have been convinced for weeks now that Peter is dating Julie after discovering old photos of the two of them celebrating New Year’s Eve together in New York City with their families.

Just last week, the duo were spotted hanging real close to one another as they hit up The Stonehaus Winery in Los Angeles with the pilot’s mom, Barbara.

Chris also recently shared a group photo of him alongside the Bachelor and the longtime producer.

Season 24 of The Bachelor comes to an end in a few weeks, which is when fans will find out if this theory is true or if one of the other ones floating around might be real.

One of the latest ideas about Pilot Pete’s season-ending decision is that of the three remaining contestants, he eliminates Victoria Fuller, 26, ditches Hannah Ann Sluss, 23, and chases after Madison Prewett, 23.

The latter of the three ran off at the end of the last episode when Peter revealed he was intimate with one of the other women, but fans believe he’ll go after Madison and choose her.

The Bachelor’s Women Tell All special airs on ABC on Monday, while the two-part finale airs on March 9 and 10.
