Unlike most seasons of The Bachelor, Peter Weber’s season has had an almost certain frontrunner since his first date: Madison Prewett. But also unlike most seasons, not even Reality Steve knows what’s going to happen next.

Prewett, the former basketball and beauty pageant star who works as a foster care recruiter, stole Bachelor Nation’s heart on her first date with Peter where they attended his parents’ renewal of vows. But teasers for future episodes suggest Prewett might end up leaving the show, and that’s not all: she was recently spotted out with a production crew.

Reality Steve posted photos on Twitter Tuesday showing Prewett filming with a crew in her hometown of Auburn, Alabama. It’s unclear what she’s filming, and while it could be continuing production for this season of The Bachelor, some fans are suggesting she doesn’t end up with Weber at all and is instead shooting her introduction as the next Bachelorette.

This comes after Monday night’s episode, where Prewett had another one-on-one with Weber that seemed to go very well. She finally opened up to Weber about the importance of her faith, unsure how he would respond.

“Faith is more than just this passed-down thing to me, it’s literally my whole life and all of who I am. I want, in a marriage, someone who also has that relationship with the Lord and loves that about me and wants to raise a family in that way,” she told Weber. “I do want to know that we’re able to be on the same page with that and push each other in that way and grow in that way together.”

Weber, who comes from a Christian family, admitted to her that his faith could be stronger, but that he’s inspired by her faith, and proceeded to tell Prewett that he’s falling in love with her. This is the first woman on the show he’s expressed feelings of love toward, and it seemed in the moment that she would be the Bachelor’s final choice.

Promotional teasers for next week’s episode of the show, however, show that Prewett is still keeping something from Weber, and it might drive a wedge between them. Prewett is a virgin and is saving herself for marriage. She is shown saying, “If he sleeps with anybody else, it’s going to be hard for me to continue to move forward.”

Teasers also show Weber admitting to someone that he was intimate with one of the women, leading fans to speculate that Prewett will leave the show and may be filming promotional videos as the Bachelorette for the next season of the franchise.

Overall, this season has come under scrutiny for both Weber’s decision making abilities and not having a clear candidate for the next Bachelorette. If Prewett does end up with Weber, producers may have to find their next Bachelorette from a past season, as they did with recent Bachelors Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Nick Viall. The most recent season they could pull from would be Colton Underwood’s, with potential single candidates being Tayshia Adams and Demi Burnett as the most likely frontrunners. Hannah Brown might even be a potential pick given ABC’s continued interest in having her on their network. At this point, it seems there are no rules when it comes to the show.

With no spoilers leaked yet for the finale, Pilot Pete’s season of The Bachelor is leaving a lot of questions open, and Bachelor Nation may have to wait until “After The Final Rose” for any of them to be answered.
