Ouch! The Bachelor Peter Weber doesn’t seem to be in the good graces of basketball legend Charles Barkley. Peter received a message from Barkley when he visited Auburn for Madison Prewett’s hometown date. While things seemed okay at that point, Barkley now has a strong message for Madi.
Barkley thinks Madison should dump Bachelor Peter
US Weekly shared news that Charles Barkley thinks front-runner Madison should dump Peter should she be offered his final rose. What exactly did he say and why? Apparently, Peter is lacking in knowledge when it comes to basketball. Basketball is life for Madison and her family. Her father is an important member of the basketball family at Auburn and Madi has demonstrated she has some good ball skills.
Charles said, “Dump that loser, Maddie. He didn’t know who Charles Barkley was. Dump his a–.” Barkley made a jumbotron appearance for Madison and Peter during their Auburn, Alabama trip. On the screen he says, “Let me tell you something. You better treat that girl right. She’s part of the Auburn family. We always stick together. War Damn Eagle.”
Peter acknowledged Barkley’s request. He said, “I have strict orders from Charles Barkley not to hurt Maddie. I have to take care of her, and I plan on doing just that.” Barkley says he heard Peter say, “Who’s that?” Barkley is a retired basketball pro and he just happened to play for Auburn from 1981 to 1984.
Her dad didn’t seem too sure of Peter either
Madison’s father is Chad Prewett. He is Auburn’s director of basketball operations. While Peter was meeting the family Madi’s father seemed a little reluctant to accept Peter. In fact, when Peter voiced he was falling in love with Madison, her father asked him to not tell her that. He said Peter needed to make sure that it was only Madi before saying he loved her.
Against what Madi’s father had to say, Peter told her that night he was falling in love with her. She did not say it back. Madison seems to be searching for answers as to if they are truly compatible. No doubt from all the previews she will have even more doubts as Peter’s journey moves the final three to Australia.
Madison has made it clear she will not compromise her faith and morals for anyone. She is seen in previews telling Peter she doesn’t know if she can pursue him anymore if he is intimate with the other women. It’s anyone’s guess at this point what will happen next. Will she leave as Reality Steve has said? Will she stay and fight for Peter? Don’t miss The Bachelor Monday night on ABC.
