‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber Tags Kelley Flanagan on Instagram and Fans Are Changing Their Tune
After a turbulent journey on The Bachelor, Peter Weber looks like he’s having fun again — with Kelley Flanagan. Recently, fans have been wondering whether Weber and Flanagan are dating, as the reality stars have been spotted together on multiple occasions. Neither party has come out to address their relationship status to the public. But then Pilot Pete tagged Flanagan on Instagram while laughing at his haters.

On April 1, Weber released a short clip of himself dancing to Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” on TikTok. However, the solo performance didn’t exactly sit well with fans. The following day, Weber filmed a video on Instagram where he read comments out loud. And although it was clear a few Bachelor Nation fans didn’t get Rachel Lindsay’s memo during the “Women Tell All” special, it seems Weber couldn’t care less about the haters.
“Just enjoying some cookies and Tik Tok comments on a Wednesday night,” Weber wrote in the caption. Then while munching on his snack, the former bachelor picked out a few of his favorite comments.
“Peter, don’t ever do this again,” Weber read. Meanwhile, another fan wrote, “Someone put this man’s voodoo doll down right now.” The 28-year-old chuckled.
Then Weber dove into some comments comparing the dance to his season of The Bachelor. “I didn’t think I could watch something worse than his season. But I was wrong,” a fan wrote. And another fan shared, “Who let him be the bachelor? I’m cringing so hard right now. He thought he did something.”
Finally, Weber ended the Instagram video with a comment that said, “This triggered my fight or flight.” But the Delta pilot did not simply read the remark. He spread his arms — erm wings — and stared straight into the camera. The video concluded with Weber grinning from ear to ear.
Watching Weber react to his haters tells fans where Pilot Pete’s head is at after The Bachelor finale. However, there is more than meets the eye. Despite her absence in the Instagram video, Weber tagged Flanagan of all people, possibly hinting they have some sort of relationship now.

When Weber posted the Instagram video, Bachelor Nation fans quickly noticed Flanagan’s tag. And of course, fans expressed their disbelief.
“But damn was shocked he actually tagged her in this,” a fan wrote on Reddit. “AND SHES NOT EVEN IN IT.”
Meanwhile, other fans were a little confused by Weber’s behavior. The Bachelor Season 24 finale aired on March 10, and Weber professed his love to Madison Prewett. They then broke up two days later in separate Instagram posts.
“This is so weird to me, I feel duped,” a fan wrote. “He was just on stage weeks ago, saying how in love he was with Madi. Then he moves on to Kelley like none of that just happened. His season was a waste honestly. Good luck to them.”
But regardless of what actually happened on the reality show, most fans seem excited about Weber’s real-life happiness.
“Peter has his faults and it was a horrible season. But he looks so happy and relaxed,” a fan wrote. “And seeing him tag Kelley did make me smile I hope it works out for them.”
And a few viewers pointed out Weber’s personality came through in the Instagram video and wondered why it wasn’t shown on The Bachelor.
“Ok but where was this Peter all season?” a fan wrote. “I am loving how cute, confident, and dorky he is. Let this be a lesson to TPTB: Just because you can get away with play-doh’ing your lead doesn’t mean you should. I would have loved to see this funny, awkward-but-in-a-cute-way Bachelor.”
For now, viewers will probably have to wait until Weber’s Bachelor contract is up to find out the truth. However, even if we don’t get the Colton Underwood-level of tea, it appears fans are just delighted to see Weber happy with Flanagan at this point.
As for whether or not they’re together, The Bachelorette’s Dustin Flanagan — who is currently quarentining with the pair in Chicago — teased Weber and Flanagan’s relationship. But Kendrick’s basically in the same boat as the rest of us.
“I think it’s fair for them to come out and say what they want to say, but the only thing I can say is that they look really cute together and their interactions are really cute as well,” he said. “That’s all I can say on that. And I’m sure you’ll be possibly hearing stuff in the future from them. But I’ll let them say that.”
He continued: “[With being on The Bachelor], that was a lot of pressure that he was under and you see people saying hateful things and bad things. It’s just good to see him happy and just living his truth and being happy with someone. After this is all over with, Peter and Kelley could be a ‘thing.’ I’m not opposed to it. From what I’ve been seeing, they’re very cute together.”
