Peter Weber Isn't 'Run of the Mill' in First 'The Bachelor' Promo (VIDEO)


ABC released a promo for Season 24 of The Bachelor on Wednesday. Bachelorette contestant Peter Weber will choose his own fiance when the new season begins Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

The 30-second spot shows Weber emerging from a stone castle with a windmill, a nod to a much talked about date he had with Hannah Brown on her season of The Bachelorette. Weber is dressed in a black suit holding the show's signature rose. He sniffs the rose but says nothing.

Weber was a fan favorite to win The Bachelorette and marry Brown, but she did not give him the final rose.

Season 24 will premiere with a group date, according to an ABC press release.

ABC also promised a surprise visitor on the season premiere.
