ABC reality dating competition The Bachelor returned last week with a bang, as Peter Weber was visited not once but twice by his former flame, last year’s Bachelorette Hannah Brown. And guess what? She’s not gone in episode two, which airs Monday, January 13 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

The Bachelor Season 24 Episode 2 Preview
The second episode The Bachelor season 24 will pick right back up where last week left off, with Peter and Hannah trying to resolve the feelings they still have for each other. Fans are wondering if Hannah is going to join the season, which would certainly not be met by cheers from the other contestants. Heavy spoke to host Chris Harrison about the whole Hannah-Peter thing and he called it “riveting” TV.
But that’s not the only drama fans can look forward to this week. This is also the episode that features a confrontation over a gift for Peter, which the ABC episode description says involves Kelsey, a special bottle of champagne, and one of the frontrunners blowing up the entire scheme, “setting off a conflict that will be known as “champagne-gate.” Get more details about “champagne-gate” from our interview with Harrison. He says it’s one of the most awkward things that has ever happened on the show. Helalso says Hannah Ann is about to have “a lot of drama” surrounding her in the coming episodes.
Meanwhile, eight bachelorettes will take part in a group date that involves strutting their stuff on the catwalk in a fashion show for Revolve, the online fashion shop that boasts such designers as House of Harlow 1960, Joie, NBD, Rag & Bone, and more. Queer Eye fashion expert Carson Kressley and supermodel Janice Dickinson will judge the ladies — and apparently, the runner-up has a “complete meltdown,” then there is an “explosive after-party” where “more than one woman is left in tears.”
