Ahead of the show’s 24th season, the 28-year-old Delta Air Lines pilot decided to shoot his shot after the Bombshell star posted a photo of herself next to a promotional billboard of him that reads, “Expect Turbulence.”
She captioned her black-and-white shot, “Turbulence I like.”
After seeing the photo, Weber initially commented “Buckle up Charlize.” But her later upped his game by recreating her post and sharing it to his own account.
He uploaded a picture of himself posing next to one of Theron’s Dior ads, writing, “Turbulence can be fun.”
Even some of Weber’s Bachelor Nation friends found the interaction funny. In the comments section, former Bachelor Colton Underwood wrote, “Shoot your shot!” while host Chris Harrison added, “Well played kid…well played.”
But the same can’t be said for fans, who were a little confused about what this means for the outcome of his season.
“U picked her?” one person wrote.
“Did anyone understand this?” another commented.
“So is this a hint as to how your season goes?” someone else added.
It’s no secret that Theron has been a fan of The Bachelor for years. In a 2018 interview on The Late Late Show With James Corden, she even gushed about watching the reality dating show. (Though she made it clear she’d never appear on the series.)
“I basically feel like I am dating The Bachelor, like, the show,” she said. “On Monday nights because my kids can’t read a clock yet so I get them to bed at like 5:45 and then I open a bottle of wine, take a bath, I get all ready and that’s my date night. I date the show.”
We’ll just have to wait and see what goes down on Weber’s season when The Bachelor premieres on ABC Monday, January 6, at 8 p.m. ET.
