  • The new Bachelor, Peter Weber, is low-key flirting with Charlize Theron on Instagram.
  • Peter's season of The Bachelor premieres on Monday, January 6 on ABC.

    Peter Weber's season of The Bachelor is almost upon us, and you know who's excited, somewhat weirdly? Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron, that's who. Charlize hit up Instagram to express her enthusiasm for Peter's season, posting a black-and-white photo of herself standing next to a poster from the show, with the caption "Turbulence I like." Um...sure!

    Peter then decided to shoot his shot, posting his own black-and-white photo of Charlize's Dior ad, with the caption "Turbulence can be fun."

    Wait. Do I ship Theron and Weber? At this rate, I'm low-key hoping he ends the season single so these two run off into the turbulent sunset together. There's precedent for stars of the franchise going on to date celebrities: Bachelor star Wells Adams just got engaged to Modern Family's Sarah Hyland, and Tyler Cameron, of The Bachelorette, dated Gigi Hadid for a while last fall.

    While we don't know the outcome of Peter's season just yet, he spoke candidly about wanting to be defined by more than just a dude who had sex in a windmill. “I understand that it came out…and I know people have had fun with it and I guess it’s a good thing that I’ve been laid-back and easygoing about it,” he told People. “But there’s so much more to me than just a windmill. And I’m ready for that to be left in the past.”

    Here's everything we know about what happens on Peter's season (warning: spoilers ahead).
