Bachelor Nation fell in love with Peter Weber — aka Pilot Pete — the moment he appeared on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. Weber’s kind demeanor and windmill adventures solidified his place within Brown’s top three. He also landed the leading role as The Bachelor for 2020. But, as we all know, the journey to finding love isn’t always easy on the ABC reality series. Fortunately, Brown recently shared advice in regards to dating within The Bachelor franchise. And honestly, we hope Weber is listening.
Hannah Brown’s dating advice for Peter Weber on ‘The Bachelor’
When speaking with People, Brown shared her thoughts on Weber’s inevitable challenges as he dates multiple women on The Bachelor. And although the former Bachelorette has insight on Weber, given their dating history, it seems Brown’s tip could apply to any individual filling in the leading role.
“I think it’s really hard, just in general, with anyone who is the lead for The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, to just really go all in. But then go all in and trust,” she explained to the publication.
The Dancing With the Stars contestant then touched on her own experience and revealed why reality show’s lead — and by extension, Weber — can’t hold back.
“As much as I knew I was completely myself and was giving it my 100 percent, you don’t know other people’s intentions, and that can make you want to hold back. But, you can’t,” Brown continued. “That’s the journey that you’re on — he is The Bachelor. I think you really have to go all in and really make sure you’re following your heart.”
But ultimately, Brown makes it clear Weber needs to find someone who he can see himself with even outside of the franchise’s bubble.
“Just remember that this is not real-life — I mean, it is real, but it’s temporary,” she said, adding Weber needs to ask himself if “these relationships, from what I’m feeling, work in the outside world, too?”
Nevertheless, it seems Brown still has plenty of faith in Weber, and she’s rooting for him to succeed. “It’s a lot. But, I know Peter has a great heart and is a genuine guy,” Brown told People. “So I really hope that it works for him.”
Will Peter Weber and Hannah Brown ever get back together?
Although Bachelorette fans rooted for Brown and Weber to get together, even after the season’s reunion special in July, it seems both parties have moved on. And despite their past, it seems they both remain supportive of one another.
“I’m really happy for him,” she told Entertainment Tonight when Weber was named The Bachelor. “I had real feelings for him and I know that he had real feelings for me, but ultimately when you care for somebody, you want them to find their happiness.”
Then more recently, the DWTS contestant expressed appreciation for her former reality co-stars. “I am so supportive of the guys I met on my Bachelorette journey and wish them well,” Brown said. “And I’m so glad for the support that some of the guys do show me.”
Meanwhile, Weber previously admitted he would “always love” Brown.
“I don’t think you can completely fall out of love with someone,” Weber told People in July, noting it was two months after their breakup. “I’ve been moving on and doing my best with that and I know time will heal all wounds. A little piece of my heart will always love her.”
“I fell in love with [Brown] and I’ve been moving on,” he explained to People. Weber then shared he didn’t want to “completely lose” his love for Brown, as it shows The Bachelor process works. He then added, “But I’m ready to move on and I’m ready to find my girl and I’m very hopeful this is gonna work out.”
