Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison is opening up why the women are living in the same suite during the Fantasy Suite dates.
On Monday’s episode of the reality dating show, Peter Weber’s final three – Victoria Fuller, Madison Prewett, and Hannah Ann Sluss – were all taken aback when they learned that they would be living together during the Fantasy Suite dates. So, after one of the women spend the night with Weber, they would turn home to their hotel room only to be greeted by the other women with whom he’d possibly just gotten physically intimate with.

Harrison explained the Bachelor producers’ decision to change things up on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, hosted by former Bachelorette stars Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin.
“There are times when, no matter how great you are, but you can’t get out of your own way, and that’s why you are single,” the 48-year-old Bachelor franchise host said.
“Peter, for example, has trouble making decisions,” Harrison continued. “I don’t know if you guys have noticed that. The king of kicking the can down the road. Heaven forbid you make a decision.”
“There are things we do as producers that will force you into this uncomfortable zone and force you into making this decision,” he added. “Sometimes we will do it for your behalf, sometimes we will do it for the guys or the girls.”
The beloved host called the situation “extraordinary” because Prewett gave Weber an ultimatum: if he’d slept with the other two women, she would leave him.
“And so this was to force a situation that had to happen, and it had to happen this week,” he said. “If we get to proposal week, then this guy is really screwed and there’s no chance this works. We got to figure this out, and there is really only one way to do it.”
“Yeah, it was tough love, and it was really awkward, and again, in the history of the show, I don’t know if we’ve ever done this,” Harrison shared. “But we decided to do it this week because there are conversations that needed to be had, and it was because I think the double standard and the things that Peter was gonna deal with, we needed the women’s perspective on this.”
“We needed Madison to face Victoria and Hannah Ann and have them express their emotions on this,” the host continued. “Because, again, it’s just this guy and his perspective, and I don’t know if that’s the greatest thing right now.”
The Bachelor Nation host was pleased with the result of the women sharing awkward moments when they lived together in Gold Coast, Australia.
Prewett was anxious about Weber potentially sleeping with the other two women.
After her date with Weber, she finally revealed to people that she was a virgin. However, the conversation didn’t go smoothly. When Prewett admitted that she was uncomfortable with Weber getting physically intimate with the other girls before the upcoming proposal, he revealed that he had gotten “intimate” on his Fantasy Suite dates, but did not go into detail.
Prewett then excused herself, leaving Weber to plead for her to stay.
