‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber Plans on Returning to Chicago to Be With Kelley Flanagan When He’s Not Working

Peter Weber has been isolating with Kelley Flanagan and Dustin Kendrick (from Hannah Brown’s Bachelorette season) in Chicago.

In an interview Weber did with former bachelor Nick Viall on The Viall Files last week, the pilot said he’d been talking to Flanagan ever since they ran into each other one night when they were out with friends (it was the second time they’d run into each other since their season ended).

After they’d been talking for a bit, Weber says he flew out to Chicago to help Flanagan “take her mind off” some “family” drama she had going on. Shortly after, “everything started to hit with the quarantine stuff.” Weber says when those pictures came out of him and Flanagan walking out in Chicago, he’d already been there “for quite a while.”  

Weber maintains that they’re not dating, but says he can definitely see a future with Flanagan. 

“It kind of became a thing where we’ve always gotten along really well and just had really good chemistry and we just enjoy each other’s company,” he said.

Peter Weber is quarantining with Kelley Flanagan and Dustin Kendrick in Chicago when he’s not working

Earlier today, Weber posted a few photos/videos on Instagram of being in an airport and flying. So fans figured the quarantine romance between the pilot and Flanagan had come to an end. But Weber just did an Instagram Q&A with fans and in one response he said he plans on returning to Chicago to continue quarantining with Flanagan and Kendrick when he’s not working. But, for now, duty calls.

“Why r u not listening to the doctors and r hanging out with people and flying [sic]?” asked one fan

“Air service is considered an essential service so I still have to work. I’m quarantined with [Kelley Flanagan] and [Dustin Kendrick] in Chi-town when I’m not working!” he replied.

Chris Harrison thinks Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan have a better shot at being together now than they did on the show

Bachelor host Chris Harrison says he’s “not incredibly shocked” that Weber and Flanagan have been rekindling their connection outside of filming.

“He and Kelley have always had that chemistry and always had that connection, and there’s a little bit of karma for them that they met before the show and then ran into each other, I think, at the Super Bowl,” he told E! News. “They just have this connection and I think ‘The Bachelor’ was just kind of a bad fit for her. I don’t think it was the best place for her to find love. And I think that probably was a big obstacle in their relationship. So maybe the quarantine is a little better environment that they can kind of be on their own and figure it out.”
