Throughout her time on The Bachelor, Flanagan became a fan-favorite. Viewers saw her spark with Weber. The contestant also called out Pilot Pete for “rewarding the drama” during his season.

Someone I have learned more from than she will ever understand. Someone I am so thankful came into my life and someone who I will always wish all of life’s greatest blessings on.”
He continued, “These moments in life always hurt, but in my opinion that shows you it was worth the time you spent together. Thank you Kelley.”
