Chris Harrison is not typically one for hyperbole.
Okay, fine. Perhaps that’s not true. Whatsoever.
But the beloved host opens the trailer featured here by stating the following, and instantly earning our attention in the process:
I can honestly say, this is one of the most unexpected and complicated endings we have ever seen.
Harrison has uttered similar sentiments about basically every single season of The Bachelor, ever.
But this preview, along with The Bachelor spoilers, makes us think he really means it this time.
For starters, Peter Weber has a couple of deeply beautiful and contrasting choices in front of him.
There’s Hannah Ann Sluss, who from the outset has been a very strong contender for his heart.
"I do love you. I do! I’m not afraid to say it, I’m not afraid to show it," she tells Weber in this finale preview.
Then there’s Madison Prewett, the pride of Auburn who has made many headlines of late because she’s a virgin.
A virgin who made it pretty clear to Peter that she didn’t want him sleeping with other women on the show …
… only to learn he had slept with other women on the show.
Peter says in this clip, with some dramatic flare:
“I am probably in one of the hardest situations I’ve ever been in in my entire life and so emotionally drained right now."
“My heart is literally split between two women.”
At one point in the finale, the 28-year-old pilot will seem certain of who he wants to end up with, telling the camera:
“I see exactly what I have in front of me, and it’s the most perfect woman. There’s no question that I’m in love with Hannah Ann."
"I could see it being me and her in the end, I really could.”
So there you have it, right?
“I think it’s obvious how badly I want to have Madi in my life forever as well,” Peter also admits in the same breath.
“I am in love with her.”
What a pickle for him, you know?!?
Elsewhere in this promo, we see Peter’s parents arrive in Australia and meet both finalists, with Peter’s mom getting real with Hannah Ann.
“I have to tell you, I’m a bit concerned,” she says. “Because it’s important you never try to change him and he never tries to change you.”
But it’s not just Hannah Ann who will be driven to tears.
Madison says she’s "hanging by a thread," prior to Harrison telling Peter that he just learned something HUGE …
… and he learned it right before Peter is set to propose.
The next thing we see is Peter lying down on a bed, on the brink of emotional collapse, being comforted by a producer.
Then he issues an apology, seemingly to one of his finalists. To which we can only say …
What the heck is going on here?!?
Who will Peter choose? Whose heart will he break?
Could this truly be the craziest finale in history?!?
It very well could. The two-night live finale of The Bachelor airs next Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
