If you didn’t start following “Pilot Pete”on social media after he stole the show on this summer’s The Bachelorette cycle, you’re about to have a very good reason to. The charming pilot, whose real name is Peter Weber, is slated to be the new series lead when The Bachelor returns in early 2020. While we know he won’t exactly be able to post spoilers or hints from his season once filming gets underway, his social media is still definitely worth a follow.
Pete’s Instagram, with the very apt handle @pilot_pete, is charmingly low-key and down-to-earth, especially by reality TV star standards. There’s no flirty thirst-trap pictures or heavily sponsored content, at least not right now. For the most part, he just posts snapshots of his life as a pilot for Delta and a few shots from his time on The Bachelorette, along with some fun pictures with his friends and family. Speaking of which, did you know that Pilot Pete has a brother who’s a pilot too? It seems like alliterative flying puns run in the family: his brother Jack goes by @jettinjack on Instagram! The brothers often pop up in each other’s pictures, along with the rest of their family (including their dad, who is also — you guessed it — a pilot!).
If you already follow “Pilot Pete” on Instagram and were hoping to find other social media to keep up with him, we have bad news. As far as public social media profiles go, it looks like Pete pretty much just sticks to Instagram — no live-tweeting or awkward Twitter feuds to follow along with, sorry! He doesn’t post constantly, just about once or twice a week, but we bet all that will change once he’s plunged back into Bachelor Nation life. As we wait out the next few months until his season premieres, be sure to keep an eye on his Instagram to keep up with whatever teasers he’s allowed to share!
