What the Bachelor in Paradise Stars Think About Peter Being the Next Bachelor

The wait is over, people: We finally know who the next Bachelor is. After weeks of speculation and predictions, ABC announced on Tuesday night that Peter Weber, a.k.a Pilot Pete, will be the one handing out roses come January. It’s a surprising choice, to say the least. While Weber definitely was a front-runner for next season, he wasn’t the front-runner. That was Mike Johnson, whose big smile and even bigger heart swooned fans during Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. Even Derek Peth from Bachelor in Paradise seemed to have a strong shot for a while. (The mature way he handled Demi Burnett leaving him for her now-girlfriend, Kristian Haggerty, really impressed fans.) But no: Pilot Pete is the one. I wonder how many windmill jokes he’ll make next season.

We’ll find out in a few months, but until then a few cast members from Bachelor in Paradise, which just wrapped this week, are weighing in on Weber’s casting. Including Peth. “I wasn’t surprised it was Peter, but I was hopeful it would be Mike that was selected,” he tells Glamour. “I know Mike, so it’s obvious that’s a big reason there. I think he would have done an awesome job and everything. But not surprised, because Peter seems level-headed and he has a job, which is a new one for some of our Bachelors. So I’d say it’s an upgrade from some of the past ones.”

John Paul Jones also mentioned Weber’s job when talking about his Bachelor-ship. “I think Peter is a very eligible Bachelor,” he says. “Professionally speaking, he definitely has his career cut out for him, and personally, I think he’s ready to settle down. I think America will really enjoy watching him fall in love again.”

Burnett, meanwhile, didn’t really have a stake in the race like Peth did. She’s close with all three front-runners (Peth, Johnson, and Weber) and would’ve been cool with any outcome. “I’m friends with Derek, I’m friends with Peter, I’m friends with Mike. I’m friends with all these guys,” she says. “So whoever was going to be picked as the next Bachelor, I have no choice but to stan, because I’m friends with all of them.”

Hannah Godwin, whose Paradise ended with a proposal from Dylan Barbour, is stanning Peter, too. “I think Peter’s gonna crush it,” she tells Glamour. Adds Barbour, “I really like Peter. I think ABC had a great crop of guys to pick from, and I think with Peter they’re going to get someone who is super upfront about their emotions and is going to be open to the experience. I’m excited for him.”

Weber’s season of The Bachelor will begin in January.

Priyanka Chopra Threw Nick Jonas a Major Party to Celebrate His 27th Birthday

As a couple, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are pretty much the definition of “go big or go home.” What else would you expect from a couple who kicked off their relationship at an event as grand as the Met Gala? Then, of course, they had that amazing multi-day celebration in India for their wedding—followed by subsequent parties stateside. So, of course, it should come as no surprise that Chopra went all out to mark the occasion of Jonas’s birthday. (He turned 27 on September 16.) No big deal: She just rented out an entire NFL football stadium.

Jonas revealed some of the details about the big bash—which took place in Soldier Field, the home of the Chicago Bears—on Twitter. “My beautiful wife surprised me with a touch football game with some of my closest friends and family on the one and only Soldier Field in Chicago (!!!) followed by a few hours of Topgolf, and then a party where pizza, tequila, cake, and cigars were involved,” he wrote.

The crew wore customized jerseys, seemingly modeled after the New York Giants but with an “NJ” for New Jersey, the JoBros’ home state. On the back, Jonas’s read “Nick” while Chopra’s says, “The Wife.”

There was even a cake with a replica of a Villa One (Jonas’s brand with John Varvatos) tequila bottle.

But the birthday fun didn’t stop in Chicago. “The next day we played a sold out show in St. Paul where so many of you brought birthday signs and sang me Happy Birthday on stage,” Jonas tweeted. “I can’t thank you all enough for the outpouring of love and birthday wishes. Means the world to have you all in my life. Here’s to 27!”

Jonas has until next July to start planning for Chopra’s 38th birthday—but given what she just did for him, we’d say he should start now.

Introducing the ‘Glamour’ TV Issue

If TV is a reflection of where we are as a society, then the fall 2019 season should give you hope.

YouTube influencer Lilly Singh is taking over the male-dominated world of late night with NBC’s A Little Late With Lilly Singh. Ruby Rose is starring as the first out lesbian superhero on the CW’s Batwoman. A-listers like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are making the jump from blockbuster movies to streaming giants (in Netflix’s The Politician and Apple TV’s The Morning Show, respectively). Even the idea of a TV star has changed, thanks to actors like Jameela Jamil and Yara Shahidi, who have used the platforms afforded to them by their hit shows The Good Place and Grown-ish for their activism.

Behind the scenes, women are calling more shots than ever. According to the Directors Guild of America, the amount of women directing TV episodes hit a record high during the 2017–18 season. Just one example of this in play: Russian Doll actor, producer, writer, and cocreator Natasha Lyonne has transformed into the small screen’s most in-demand director, helming episodes for Orange Is the New Black (Netflix), Shrill (Hulu), and Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens (Comedy Central). ABC president Karey Burke is leading the network’s slate of diverse programming as the network’s new entertainment president—a role she inherited from another woman, Channing Dungey, in November.

The point: Complex, nuanced roles for women abound—before and behind the camera—and they’re found on streaming platforms, premium cable channels, and network behemoths alike. And to honor this, Glamour invited three women who represent what television is all about in 2019 to be our TV issue cover stars: Jameela Jamil, Natasha Lyonne, and Ruby Rose. Though they have vastly different backgrounds (countries, even), they share the common threads that matter most: They’re passionate advocates for women, forward-thinking storytellers, and, frankly, really good at their jobs.

Natasha Lyonne Is Now In Charge

An earlier, radically different version of Russian Doll created by Poehler and Lyonne called Old Soul with Ellen Burstyn and Rita Moreno failed to earn a green light from NBC in 2014. The idea sprung from a conversation Lyonne had with Poehler, who called her “the oldest girl in the world.” In Old Soul, Lyonne played a gambling addict with an elderly circle of friends. “Russian Doll can hold bigger concepts, but I always thought Old Soul was inherently subversive and would have been fun to put on network TV,” she says. “Like, why do we think that 30-year-olds should hang out only with 30-year-olds?”

While that series died—perhaps so Russian Doll could live—Lyonne has turned her attention to new projects in the works. She recently formed a production company, Animal Pictures, with Rudolph to develop original series, features, and documentary projects, none of which she’d divulge. Animal Pictures inked a first-look deal with Amazon.

Rudolph and Lyonne met at Manhattan’s Mercer Bar in 2001. “It was love at first sight,” says Rudolph. Two years ago, Lyonne directed the SNL alum in a visually lush, experimental short called Cabiria, Charity, Chastity, about a woman who makes peace with her vaudeville past. “The surprise for me was the ease and comfort in watching her in charge on set,” says Rudolph. “It’s rare when you see someone in their right place. This is her calling. She knows her shit.”

It’s no accident that Lyonne collaborates often with close friends. “We’re slowly realizing that, since we’re no longer teenagers, we can’t just hang out,” she says. “People have children and lives and stuff, so if we can find a way to work with each other, we’ll get to spend more time together that’s not just, like, Let’s meet for lunch three times a year.”

It was Rudolph who introduced Lyonne to her boyfriend, Fred Armisen. They met for the first time years ago—though Lyonne doesn’t remember it. “I was going through a rocky road, as we know,” she says of her “Grey Gardens phase.” Ever the storyteller, she relishes the details (as told to her by Armisen): Rudolph and Armisen came by Lyonne’s apartment and found her swanning around in a long silk robe, sunglasses on, chain-smoking. “I pulled out a copy of [Legs McNeil’s oral history] Please Kill Me, autographed it, and was like, ‘Welcome, kid. Fred—what a name. Happy birthday. Enjoy the book.’” She grins. “He still has it.”

The two have been dating since 2014 and split their time between her apartment in Manhattan and his house in L.A. She compares him to Sevigny in terms of their caretaking instincts. “They’re always going to pick me up from school on time.”

Ruby Rose Is Ready to Stand in Her Own Power, Save Gotham, and Get the Girl

That said, identifying with Kate isn’t necessarily Rose’s favorite part of playing the role. “Her being gay, it’s definitely part of who she is, and it’s definitely part of the story and establishing why she’s not in the military anymore. But the show is not about a gay superhero. It’s about a superhero.”

Rose says she and Caroline Dries, executive producer of the show, have spoken at length about how to position Kane’s queerness in Batwoman. “We both make the show and love this show because it’s what we wished we had on television when we were kids,” she explains. And so, Rose hopes it will open people’s minds and present female queerness as normalized, rather than tokenized.

She says the Batwoman supersuit, designed by Academy Award–winning costumer Colleen Atwood, makes her feel bulletproof. “The costume is awesome,” she says. “Putting it on for the first time was very, very surreal. I talked to everyone else, like Melissa [Benoist of Supergirl], Grant [Gustin of The Flash], Stephen [Amell of Arrow], about their first times, and it’s just really peculiar because she’s made it to your body. It’s my suit.” One issue: “If we were to do a season two, my only thing is going to be, ‘I gotta find a way to pee, guys.’” While we cackle about demanding bathroom-accessible supersuits being on the frontlines of the fight for equality, she quips, “All the boys get a zip! They all get a zip, and none of the girls do. That’s not right!”

Batwoman isn’t the first time Rose has played a queer heartthrob, of course. When she appeared as Stella Carlin on season three of Orange Is the New Black, she seemingly gayed every woman in America. Many, many fans tweeted about “questioning their sexuality” after streaming the season. “My friends were like, ‘What is happening?’ It was a wild ride,” Rose says.

But that moment was something Rose considers “the most pivotal” in her career. Her veteran Orange castmates told her, “‘You do realize this is going to change your life, right?” And they were right: Orange opened up new doors for Rose stateside. She credits Orange creator Jenji Kohan and casting director Jennifer Euston for getting her “a job, a SAG award,” and “back-to-back movies” that allowed her to acquire a visa.

Jameela Jamil Isn’t Trying to Get Anyone Canceled

Her messaging is not subtle, but that’s the point. “Sometimes you have to use a bit of a shock tactic in order to break through the noise. We’re so syrupy and sugary and perfect and glossy and inoffensive,” Jamil says. “That’s not going to get anyone anywhere. We still have a booming diet industry. We’re in an epidemic of teen suicide, teen eating disorders. The nice way doesn’t work. I have to get in people’s faces. I’m okay with pissing people off, as long as it creates change.”

When Jamil says that things like Photoshop should be banned, critics point out that this is hardly sticking her slender neck out. As a result, she’s continuously honing her position. Today she no longer aligns with body positivity, per se, though she still champions the work of leaders in the field, such as Your Fat Friend. Instead she’s embracing what she calls body neutrality, even ambivalence.

“I don’t think about my body ever,” she says. “And because of that, I swear to God, I never would have been able to have this success that I have now. It opened up all this time because I spent hours a day thinking about my food.”

She continues to sell it: “Imagine just not thinking about your body. You’re not hating it. You’re not loving it. You’re just a floating head. I’m a floating head wandering through the world.”

Thinking about your body, Jamil insists, and taking measures to control its size leads almost inevitably to shame. Any kind of specific diet plan “creates a feeling of restriction. And restriction leads to rebellion. And it leads to obsessive tendencies with a lot of people.”

Later, I push back. Is there a way to lose weight that’s sensible and healthy, if that’s what makes a person feel happy and confident? Would you tell everyone not to diet…ever? Jamil, who once had to lose weight after injuries from a car accident, doctor’s orders, says no. “I’m not here to tell anyone what to do. In the same way that I wouldn’t tell someone they have to gain weight, I’d not tell them to lose weight. It’s not really my interest. My interest is our mental health around our body. Because that’s the real fucker of the whole thing.”

Jamil is determined to not let perfect be the enemy of good. Last month she posed for the cover of UK’s Stylist magazine smashing scales with a hammer. The issue, which she guest-edited and packed with diverse writers like trans model Munroe Bergdorf and Poorna Bell, caught her some flak because nearly all of the fashion worn by Jamil isn’t available above a size 18. (Stylist’s editor-in-chief Lisa Smosarski defended Jamil, saying, “Anyone who sticks their neck out as much as Jameela does will inevitably be criticised by some—but it is only by a few brave women, like Jameela, speaking out can we create true, meaningful change.”) When I ask her about this, Jamil says, “I can’t achieve change overnight. I need to first talk about it and make it a big widespread conversation.”

Peter Weber Is Officially the Next Bachelor—and People Have a Lot of Thoughts

After weeks of speculation, it’s official: Peter Weber, a.k.a. “Pilot Pete,” will be The Bachelor for the hit ABC show’s 24th season.

The announcement was made during last night’s season finale of Bachelor in Paradise. “It’s still hitting me right now, and I feel so grateful right now just to have this opportunity in front of me,” Weber said. “I feel emotional right now. This is crazy. This is life-changing. I have truly, my entire life, looked forward to finding my girl, and that first person that I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with … I have all the faith in the world that this can work for me, and I know it’s going to.”

Weber, a 27-year-old airplane pilot, came in third during Hannah Brown’s recent season of The Bachelorette and was long thought to be a frontrunner to be the next Bachelor—along with Tyler Cameron, Mike Johnson, and John Paul Jones. Cameron is now famously dating supermodel Gigi Hadid and Johnson may or may not be seeing Demi Lovato.

After losing out on Brown’s heart, Weber told People, “I know this whole situation didn’t work out the way I was hoping, but Hannah truly showed me a different love than I had ever felt. So it’s given me hope that I have more love to find. I wouldn’t say no to trying it again because I know the experience works. And I’m hopeful that my person is right around the corner.”

He also says that he learned from the experience. “From night one with that first toast to the very end when I said goodbye to her, she was 100 percent unapologetically herself, and I love that,” Weber told host Chris Harrison. “And that’s something that I definitely want to carry forward with my journey now.”

Weber’s appearance on The Bachelorette was not without some controversy. His ex-girlfriend, Calee Lutes, claimed that they were serious and thinking about moving in together when he dumped her to appear on the show. But he tells a different story. “I was very serious in trying to progress that relationship and move it forward,” he said. “And she wasn’t on the same page as me. That being said, I wasn’t going to waste her time or my time. But the casting process and my first interview was months after we broke up.”

Chrissy Teigen Accidentally Tweeted Her Email Address, and Her Reaction Was Hilarious

Chrissy Teigen may be the reigning queen of Twitter, but even she makes a social media faux pas every once in while. Like, say, accidentally posting her actual email address. That’s right: Teigen mistakenly gave fans a way to contact her directly and, naturally, they took it.

But instead of seriously freaking out, like many in her position might have, Teigen handled it all in her usual hilarious and relatable style—and documented it for all of us to see on her Twitter. Once she realized her mistake, she tweeted, “F*ck I posted my email address lmao.” Cut to fans immediately reaching out to their fave. Teigen was rightfully worried that some NSFW images might be headed her way.

“Oh my god people are FaceTiming me. was 100% sure this would be a penis but nope just a nice stranger,” she wrote. Then she and her mom actually answered one of those FaceTime calls from a gentleman named Ricardo. “Hi, Ricardo, nice to meet you. This is my mom,” she said. “Thanks for calling me!”

“We’re good,” she continued. “We’re about to eat dinner but just thought we’d answer one of these.” Ricardo talked to People after his famous call and said he was “shocked [that] she answered” and “could not believe it was her.” He also added that he wished he had “told her I loved her and her husband [John Legend]” and that he “would love to meet y’all one day.” Oh, and he wants her to follow him on Twitter.

The calls kept rolling in.

“Please stop I have a family,” Teigen joked.

Eventually, she got the matter all sorted out. “Everything disabled and changed emails. but I love you guys and thank you for the kind words lol,” Teigen wrote.

She even admitted this wasn’t her worst mistake. This incident was “not as bad as when I published my phone number on my dog’s collar in my cookbook,” she says.

We love you, Chrissy. Never change.

Best TV Shows Fall 2019

Fall television isn’t just entertainment now: It’s an event. Much like summer is prime time for action blockbusters and winter is when the Oscar bait comes, fall is all about TV. This is when new series premiere that can potentially become classics—like This Is Us did in 2016 or How to Get Away With Murder just two years before that. It’s when long-running favorites, think Grey’s Anatomy, return to warm up your chilly nights. And it’s when the Emmys happen, honoring the best and buzziest on the small screen.

In fact, half the fun of fall TV is speculating which shows will sweep the next Emmys—and this year’s slate is stacked with big contenders. From Ryan Murphy’s Netflix debut, The Politician to YouTube star Lilly Singh’s late-night show on NBC, so many big things are happening. They don’t call it the golden age of television for nothing.

“Fall is time for re-setting—it’s almost the second New Year. Post-summer, everyone’s getting back into a routine. I think that fall TV can provide a really exciting outlet for that,” Kennedy McMann, who stars in The CW’s Nancy Drew, tells Glamour. She’s right: There’s something satisfying about establishing a routine of new and existing shows you like. But if you’re overwhelmed with what to watch, look no further than the TV shows below. Your queue’s never looked better.
