‘The Bachelor’: Hannah Brown Is Bothered By This 1 Thing About the Peter Weber Reunion
The reunion between Hannah Brown and Peter Weber turned The Bachelor Season 24 into the “most dramatic season ever” in the very first episode. The former bachelorette met up with her former flame — not once, but twice. And soon enough, it became abundantly clear Brown and Weber still had feelings for one another, despite Weber’s title as the new bachelor. Following the episode, many fans wondered whether the dramatic meetup was orchestrated by producers. But recently, Brown opened up about her emotional conversation with Weber and cleared the air.
What happened to Hannah Brown and Peter Weber in ‘The Bachelor’ Season 24?
As mentioned, Brown returns to The Bachelor franchise in the premiere. She first arrives on the first night to return Weber’s pilot wings pin. The moment is brief and a little awkward. Ultimately, the moment gives Weber some closure and hope about his journey on The Bachelor. However, that feeling doesn’t last for long.
At the end of the premiere, a few contestants go on a group date — with Brown as the host. She tells the women about the windmill in Greece and explains they need to prepare one of their own sexual experiences to tell a live audience. But the group date is cut short when Brown and Weber reunite.
After Brown gives the contestants the instructions, she tells producers she isn’t sure about her feelings. Last, in a room backstage, the former bachelorette starts crying — with mascara dripping down her face. And Weber goes in to comfort her.
The exes discuss their relationship. Weber gets some answers about Brown’s public flirtation with Tyler Cameron on After the Final Rose. He wonders whether Brown ever considered him. But back then, Brown thought he wanted to become the next bachelor and Cameron already reached out before the special was filmed.
Meanwhile, Brown apologizes for their breakup, noting she regrets her final decision. Then when Weber asks whether she will join his cast, Brown says, “Maybe.” But she gets up, frustrated.
“When I walked out, I felt a lot more than I thought I was going to,” Brown says. “I didn’t think it would be that much spark because I know that there’s still something there.”
At this point, both parties are confused about their feelings. But in the next episode, Weber and Brown make a decision. They share an intimate moment together, holding each other on the couch. Finally, Weber breaks it off.
“I can’t do this,” he says. Weber and Brown embrace once more, this time to say goodbye.
“This was not supposed to happen,” Brown says before Weber returns to the group date.
Hannah Brown explains her reunion with Peter Weber on ‘The Bachelor’
In Jan. 21, Brown stopped by Entertainment Tonight and spoke with host Lauren Zima about her conversation with Weber on The Bachelor.
“That was a lot,” Brown said.
But even so, the former bachelorette has only one thing irking her after the scene aired on ABC.
“One thing that has bothered me is I never would have gone and just started spilling my guts about how I felt about him,” Brown said. “I truly wanted to be there and do my job of hosting. I just had a vulnerable moment.”
The 25-year-old continued: “I mean, I pride myself for being honest to a fault. But if I get asked questions about how I feel, I’m gonna say what’s really truthful. I think that, especially in that situation, you deserve honest answers when you’re putting your life on the line and trying to figure out your relationship. So it was a very hard conversation and then go back to learning a Rumba.”
Peter Weber on Hannah Brown’s ‘Bachelor’ appearance
Following Brown’s exit on Weber’s season of The Bachelor, the Delta pilot shared his thoughts. And for the most part, he felt the same way as Brown about their discussion.
“It caught me off guard, I was really curious why she was there,” Weber told CNN on Jan. 14. “That was a really real, raw conversation. It brought back feelings and I couldn’t hide those.”
Nevertheless, Weber explained he needed the conversation to happen in order to move forward.
“Even though that conversation wasn’t planned, it needed to happen,” Weber said. “The hardest part for me was just struggling with the fact that I had amazing women [who] just showed up, and I didn’t have any feelings yet for anyone. It was too soon to have any legit connection. So, it was awkward, it was uncomfortable, but it needed to happen.”
