What Chris Harrison said about Peter Weber’s experience on ‘The Bachelor’

Harrison appeared on Roses & Rose with ET’s Lauren Zima. In the interview, Harrison gave his opinion about Weber’s choices throughout the experience.

“I can see how it would be misleading to the women,” Harrison told Zima on Roses & Rose. “When a guy looks you in the eye and says, ‘You’re perfect, you don’t have anything to worry about, I love you, I want to spend the rest of my life with you, there’s nothing wrong with you, you’re the most perfect human being. You’re a unicorn’…. I can see where that would be misleading!”

However, Harrison said he does not fault Weber for what he chose to tell the women on The Bachelor.

“But I really, truly know that he felt that and believed it in the moment,” he said. “And as a hard time as we gave Ben Higgins for saying I love you to two women, that really pales in comparison to what Peter says.”

Peter Weber says he was in love with three women

At the “Women Tell All” taping, Weber spoke to ET about his experience on The Bachelor. In the interview, he admitted that his opinion on soulmates changed because of the show.

“I’ve always been a firm believer that the heart wants what it wants, and I think this experience for sure has shown me that there’s not just one soulmate out there,” Weber told ET. “I think at some point in my life, I used to think that, and I’ve definitely been able to give my heart to more than one person. So, it’s possible.”

Harrison agrees that on the show, it’s possible for the lead to fall in love with multiple people because of the environment they are put in.

“I know it sounds crazy but it absolutely can happen on our show. It’s an extraordinary situation where you can compartmentalize these relationships. I know it’s bizarre, because none of us have this in our real lives — you shouldn’t — [but] it’s real, it can happen. I see it all the time,” he said. 

Chris Harrison explains Peter Weber’s decisions on ‘The Bachelor’

One thing fans faulted Weber for on The Bachelor was his indecisiveness. Harrison explained that while Weber struggled with making decisions, he was also faced with a lot of tough decisions this season.

“I know we’ve given him a hard time, but those rose ceremonies, those decisions, were tough. So, when we got to the end, I knew this was going to be difficult,” he said. “He’s so emotional, and not only does he not want to hurt anybody — which is a normal human condition — but he wanted to make the right decision and he was really struggling, because as you can tell, he really was falling for three women.”
