Peter Weber, who came in third place on Hannah Brown‘s season of The Bachelorette, will be the season 24 Bachelor, Chris Harrison announced on the Bachelor in Paradise reunion special on Tuesday, September 1.

Weber pointed out that he grew up minutes from Bachelor Mansion and used to try to sneak in.  While other men like Tyler Cameron, Mike Johnson and Derek Peth were in the mix, a source tells E! News Peter was “always” ABC and the producers’ top choice, saying, “Peter has always been their guy. He’s older, he as a career and he has a great backstory. He can definitely carry a show.”

“Peter honestly was the most sincere,” our source explained. “He’s an amazing person and producers really believe his sincerity and that’s one of the biggest factors that the decision ultimately came down to.”

Peter’s season of The Bachelor will kick off in January 2020 on ABC, though you can already start placing bets as the contestants have been already been revealed.
