The host of the ABC franchise cleared the air on Wednesday’s episode of Lights Out With David Spade.
“Yeah, we can categorically say that’s a big no,” Chris mentioned when asked regarding the speculation.
Earlier this season, a concept spread that Peter had came upon love with Julie. Fans dug up footage of the duo on social media, and there were evaluations that the two had spent New Year’s Eve together and visited a winery at one stage.
However, Chris mentioned there may be “nothing there” and that Julie was at the finale “working” and “in quest of to deal with [Peter’s mom] Barb.”
Speaking of Barb, the proud mom or father made headlines after she had a frustrating trade with contestant Madison Prewett right through After the Final Rose. For those who not noted it, here’s what came about: Madison left the show right through the finale. Peter then proposed to fellow contestant Hannah Ann Sluss. However, the two broke up after Peter admitted he may now not give her his entire heart. Hannah Ann then confronted Peter on After the Final Rose, claiming he had “downplayed” his feelings for Madison and completely “blindsided” her.
“If you want to be with a woman, you need to become a real man,” she mentioned.
Madison insisted she has “love and respect” for Peter and his family and mentioned she’d “never say a negative word about anyone or anything.”
“Honestly, this is about me and Peter, our journey, just he and I should be talking about it,” she later added.
Chris admitted he was shocked by the use of Barb’s trade with Madison. While he mentioned he knew Barb “wasn’t in a great mood” when he spotted her, he mentioned he “didn’t know what she was mad at and…didn’t think that was what was going to happen.”
“I didn’t think she was just going to roll right over Peter like that,” he mentioned. “Even when we tried to fix that—I thought, OK, we’re going to come back from this and she’s going to say, ‘You know what? At the end of the day, it’s my boy’—it just never got there.”
“The Most Beautiful, Elegant, Classy, Intelligent, Stylish Girl in the World!!!” Peter’s mom wrote on Instagram. “You were and will always be my Fav rav.”
She moreover wrote, “We need to do lunch and go shopping for the day.”
However, Chris mentioned Kelley was a “red herring [and] little Easter egg we threw out there for Bachelor Nation.”
Even when a fan asked Kelley why she was there on Instagram, the legal professional replied, “Lol I wish I knew.”
