‘The Bachelor’: Fans Remind Everyone Who “Public Enemy #1” Is, and It’s Not Hannah Brown or Peter Weber

The new season of The Bachelor is off to a rough start. Peter Weber is the newest guy picked to lead Season 24 of the popular franchise. Not only has some drama started brewing between women on his season, but also with his ex, Hannah Brown. Brown’s top choice on her season of The Bachelorette went to Jed Wyatt, and unfortunately, that didn’t end well at all. 

Despite all of the emotions and hurt feelings between Brown and Weber, fans pointed out on Twitter that they’re not the ones to blame in all this.

Hannah Brown caused a stir on Peter Weber’s first episode

Brown surprised everyone when she walked out of the limo during Weber’s first night at the Bachelor Mansion. At first, she came just to deliver the wings he gifted her back during her season of The Bachelorette. But after she showed up again later during a challenge, things got really heavy between them. 

In a dressing room behind the scenes, Weber told Brown how his “heart just sank” when she asked Tyler Cameron out after she and Jed broke up, and not him. “[Tyler] was reaching out, you didn’t say anything,” Brown responded. “I didn’t know if you wanted to get past it. I thought you wanted to be the Bachelor.” 

The real kicker came when Weber asked Brown if she regretted sending him home. “Yeah, Peter, I question it all the time,” Brown told him. “[Picking Jed] was comfortable. It was falling back into the same thing but, like, I broke everybody’s heart and my own through this experience.”

Fans want to remind everyone that Jed is actually the person to blame

There are a lot of viewers who aren’t big fans of Brown right now. They’re saying that she had her chance and that she messed it up for Weber and herself. But after the first episode, there are also a lot of fans calling people’s attention to the real culprit in their eyes. “We wouldn’t be in this situation if Jed hadn’t manipulated Hannah B. and tried to use her to become famous,” Twitter user @kendalfiree wrote. “So let’s all collectively direct our anger to Bachelor Public Enemy #1

User @kable_town wrote that Brown’s statements and uncertainty were “the aftermath of being emotionally abused by luke p and then jed.” And @StellaNicole_7 wrote, “Sorry but if jed never played hannah she wouldn’t have to go through this. She didn’t deserve to have her bachelor experience ruined.”

Wyatt and Brown had closure after they called off their engagement 

According to Wyatt, he’s glad Brown moved on to other things. “I do have closure now knowing that she has moved on, but it still hurts, because I love her and I do want the best for her, but, ultimately, I have to just move on,” he told Good Morning America in August. “I’m sure we’ll reconnect in some way. We’re on decent terms with each other, and we can still be friends I hope, and that’s all I can ask for.”

It’s safe to assume that Brown doesn’t stay on The Bachelor much longer since she was filming Dancing With The Stars at this time. But a source told Us Magazine that she was moving on just fine. It was a shock to still have strong emotions towards Weber. “Hannah was in a good place truly focusing on DWTS, getting confident and happy again after the Jed drama, and she really didn’t need this little interruption,” they said. “Seeing Peter brought back old feelings that she didn’t want to be dealing with.”
