Peter, 28, is known from Hannah Brown’s season for their infamous Fantasy Suite Date where they had sex in a windmill four times. “It's never going to die. That's OK," he joked during an interview with Good Morning America. "I love windmills."

“But Peter was feeling too sick so they canceled it. Sounds like it was food poisoning,” the blogger suggested.

Luckily for Peter, he can recover at his own home since he is the first Bachelor to live within close proximity to the show's mansion. “You're different from any other Bachelor we've ever had," Chris Harrison told Peter during his announcement as The Bachelor on September 17. "We've never had somebody who lives about five minutes from the Bachelor mansion. You literally grew up in the shadows of that mansion."
