Bachelor fans found out earlier on this season that Madison Prewett was saving herself for marriage. On Tuesday night’s episode, they found out that the Alabama native also abstains from drinking alcohol. That question was brought up during a scene in Monday night’s episode in which Peter Weber and the 23-year-old toasted their date with a glass of sparkling apple juice. Bachelor Nation mocked Madison’s decision not to drink alcohol.
Meanwhile, Madison’s dad, Chad Prewett, is defending her. He posted on Twitter after The Bachelor’s turbulent season finale. Understandably, he’s been very supportive of her. According to TV Shows Ace, this isn’t the first time that Madison’s father has defended her on social media.
Bachelor Nation teases Madison’s decision to not drink
This comes weeks after Madison Prewett revealed that she is saving herself for marriage. It’s clear that her Christian faith is important to her and she wants to focus on that. Several weeks ago, during her hometown date with Peter, she opted for sweet tea instead of wine with her dinner. Bachelor fans are shocked over Madison’s decision to abstain from alcohol, as reported by TV Insider. Here are just some of the comments they wrote:
- “Madison, girrrrl. This show has sex AND alcohol. Not sure why you thought coming on this show was going to be a good idea,” one fan tweeted during Tuesday night’s episode.
- “Uh hold the phone does Madison not consume alcohol?” another fan wrote.
ABC’s Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials & Late Night-Programming, Robert Mills, confirmed that Madison doesn’t drink on Twitter. He casually responded to a Bachelor fan who wanted to know why she was drinking sparkling apple juice with Peter. Some fans joked that the plot twist was that she was pregnant.
“We made it through the entire scene and they never explained the sparkling apple juice. @Millsy11374, plz explain,” the fan begged.
“Madi doesn’t drink. Not a big thing with her. She just doesn’t do it,” he casually responded.
Madison’s decision to remain a virgin until marriage led to a heavy debate during the latter part of the season. But it’s her choice not to drink that has Bachelor Nation in an uproar.
Madison Prewett’s father defends his daughter once again
As E! News reported, Chad Prewett is proud of his daughter. He posted on Twitter during part-one of Monday night’s season finale.
“Proud is an understatement,” Chad wrote. “I believe in you and support you always Madi Rose!”
He then retweeted a message that included the hashtag “#TeamMadison.” Madison was proud of her father’s sweet words. She responded: “Love you so much.” She also took to Instagram to share a photo and video of herself with her proud papa.
The two-part Bachelor season finale was the most dramatic one yet. Peter Weber popped the question to Hannah Ann Sluss, but the two ended their engagement after he revealed to the Tennessee model that he couldn’t give her his entire heart. Host Chris Harrison shared the news with Madison, who made a surprise visit to Peter.
Then Hannah Ann showed up at the After The Final Rose show. She told him that he needs to act like a “real man” if he wants a “real woman.” Madison appeared and Peter professed his love for her. His mom, Barbara Weber, wasn’t happy with their reunion. It quickly turned into a scene from The Jerry Springer Show.
Madison says that she has nothing but “love and respect” for Peter and his family. She didn’t want to “rehash” their past or to say anything “negative.” She just wants to focus on her relationship with Peter.
Even though Peter’s season ended, Clare Crawley’s journey to find love is just starting. Watch for her season of The Bachelorette in May.
