'Bachelor' Exec Addresses Peter Weber's Mom Barb's Finale Behavior: 'I Don't Think Anyone Knew She Would Go That Far'

The Bachelor came to a dramatic end on Tuesday night (March 10), and social media was immediately abuzz with reactions to the show’s finale with Peter Weber – especially his mother, Barb.

ABC exec Rob Mills discussed her controversial involvement – and blatant disapproval of her son Peter deciding to date Madison in the end – during an interview with Variety.

“I think the confrontation with Madison probably has more people on Madison’s side,” he said.

“We knew that she was not necessarily thrilled that Peter had reconciled with Madison, but this was truly a little bit scary because it was live and nobody knows what she’s going to say, but at the same time, that’s what makes for great TV. But, I don’t think anyone knew she would go that far.”

When asked if Barb went too far – as some people on social media feel – he said: “We all want love. We all want to find that person and want to be with someone. And the fact that the family does not get along with the person you’ve chosen to be with is also something that many people deal with. Family dynamics is always something you have to deal with. I think everybody saw some scenario in their life than rang true while watching that.”

“I think it’s going to be difficult with Peter and Madison, so I’m glad that everybody saw these dynamics on TV, so that if they don’t work out, it played in front of the audience. When you sign up for this show, you sign up to bring the audience with you on this journey,” he went on to explain.

As for whether the show plans to continue filming with Peter‘s family, he said: “If it’s warranted. I think, right now, they deserve their privacy. But of course we’ll check up on them. If there’s something that warrants us filming, we would love to be there.”

One Bachelor alum poked fun at the events of the show’s finale. See what he said!
