As Kentucky tries to finish out the regular season on top of the SEC and take home the conference title, the Auburn Tigers are spending their time on the hit ABC show, “The Bachelor.”
On Monday evening, show contestant Madison Prewett – an Auburn native and AU alumna – earned the opportunity to take this season’s bachelor Peter Weber back to her hometown for a date after receiving a rose last week.
Prewett, who is actually the daughter of Auburn basketball Director of Operations Chad Prewett, decided to take Weber on a tour of the basketball facilities and participate in some on-court activities at Auburn Arena with none other than Bruce Pearl.
The end result? Prewett showed off her impressive skills, while Weber slightly embarrassed himself trying to dribble two basketballs at the same time.
With the cameras in his face, Pearl used the opportunity to poke fun at this season’s bachelor.
“This happens in camps all the time,” Pearl said. “Of course, they’re six or seven years old, but that’s okay. Don’t worry about it.”

Meanwhile, Prewett, a four-time high school state champion, proved on multiple occasions that she can get buckets.
