Bachelor Power Rankings: Recapping Fantasy Suites week



Bachelor Peter Weber is down to his final three Bachelorettes – but his actions during Fantasy Suite week in Australia may have narrowed his field even further. Madison told Peter that she couldn’t move forward if he slept with any other women, but will she return for the next Rose Ceremony?

With just two episodes left in the season, we’re getting close to a proposal. Who is in the lead entering the Tell All episode, and who should be going home? We’ll be recapping each episode and ranking all the contestants weekly on FTW.

1. Hannah Ann

Last week’s rank: 1

Peter and Hannah Ann had the first Fantasy Suite date in Australia, and spent the day jet skiing and making out on a beach. Peter reaffirmed his feelings for Hannah Ann, telling her that “when i say i’m falling in love with you, i mean that.” From Peter’s confessionals, it certainly seems like he’s ready to get down on one knee in front of Hannah Ann.

“I see exactly what I have in front of me, and it’s the most perfect woman I’ve ever dreamt of.”

The pair spent an eventful night together in the fantasy suite, but Hannah Ann was vague about their date the next day to Madison, who was clearly struggling with the reality that Peter was sleeping with other women.

At this stage, Peter’s choice should be fairly easy – Hannah Ann is without a doubt his best match of the season – which means he’s probably going to mess it up.

2. Madison

Last week’s rank: 2

Last week’s episode ended with Madison asking Peter to have a conversation immediately after the Rose Ceremony, where it was expected that Madison would reveal to Peter that she’s saving herself for marriage.

Madison didn’t do that, however, and instead simply told him that if he were to sleep with any other woman, it would be “difficult” for her to move forward. Peter tried to get her to clarify what she was proposing – which is that he effectively had to choose a future with Madison or a future with the other women on the spot.
Madison exited the conversation feeling that she got to share what she “needed to share,” but the entire episode could have played out differently if Madison was more forthcoming about her stance.

Once the show moved to Australia, producers conspired to put Madison in the worst possible situation. All three women were forced to live together in the same suite, and Madison’s date was scheduled last.

After seeing both Hannah Ann and Victoria F. arrive the morning after their date, Madison likely knew that Peter had been intimate with both – but that didn’t stop them from having a fairly excellent date climbing a massive tower. In a confessional, Madison said that when they reached the top, she could see Peter as the father of her children.

At the dinner portion, Peter addressed Madison’s comments about intimacy in the hangar, and Madison explained that she’s saving herself for marriage. Madison said that she didn’t want Peter to feel like she was giving him an ultimatum – but later said that if he had been intimate with other women, that she wouldn’t be able to accept a proposal. Peter admitted what had happened earlier in the week, and Madison excused herself from the table.

Peter went after Madison and implored her not to give up on their relationship, but she eventually walked out of the date. The preview footage showed that Madison may not show up to the next Rose Ceremony, which could be the big revelation Chris Harrison had to deliver to Peter.

Neither person is in the wrong here and is simply acting in accordance with their beliefs, but this situation was handled about as poorly as possible. Madison waited until hometown week to reveal to Peter how important her faith was to her, and then waited until after he had been in two fantasy suites to reveal that she’s saving herself for marriage. If pre-marital sex is a dealbreaker, though, why is Madison interested in Peter “Windmill” Weber in the first place? He clearly has a different set of values, and the reality of the show is that he’s going to have time to be intimate with other women.

Madison told Peter that she doesn’t want to “feel like a bad person” for the standards that she has, and she’s completely right to feel that way. But is Peter supposed to feel bad for the standards he has? Madison said that she “can’t change who I am,” but should Peter change who he is?

If Madison does return to the show, I’d expect Peter to offer her a rose before he gives one to Victoria F. – but it may be best for both sides if Madison moves on.

3. Victoria F.

Last week’s rank: 4

Peter entered Victoria F.’s fantasy suite date knowing that they’ve never had a day together that didn’t end with an incident, but according to Peter, he’s “attracted” to that kind of chaos. For whatever reason, Peter has opted to celebrate all the red flags in his relationship with Victoria, and use them as evidence that they can overcome any odds. Victoria’s comment during their date summed up the entire relationship:

“We haven’t even fought…. yet!”

At the dinner date, Victoria and Peter struggled through a conversation about their communication issues that could have very easily gone sideways, but it ended with Peter offering her a spot in the fantasy suite so they could continue to have serious conversations. She accepted – but it doesn’t seem likely that they spent the night working on their communication issues.

Look, it’s great that Peter is willing to fight for a relationship that he believes in, but there have been so many issues between these two that he has to realize it could never last. When every serious conversation feels like it could end with one person storming out for good, it’s time to move on.
