‘The Bachelor’: So Hannah Brown Asked Peter Weber to Run Away With Her and He Said No

Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor began with some unfinished business. Former bachelorette Hannah Brown attempted to lead the women in a group date when the pilot found her upset backstage. The two had the heart-to-heart they obviously needed and, last night, came to an agreement to part ways so Weber could continue on as the bachelor.

During the premiere, Weber asked Brown to move back into the mansion. The second episode picked right back up where they’d left off.

“Kinda sucks. I mean, you like thought that I was–I just wanted to be the bachelor. You’re the one that said no to me. I’ve never said no to you,” he told her.  

Brown reiterated that she thinks she may have made a mistake by sending him home. But it seemed as though Weber needed her to say that she undoubtedly made a mistake by sending him home.

“I just want someone to just want me as bad as I want them and you tell me that you, you have feelings still and that you made mistakes and whatnot and I like wanna hear that and I wanna believe that. But then I’m also like, ‘Is she just missing the what-ifs? Like not the–not actually missing me?’” he said to her.

Brown admitted that part of her was getting lost in the “what-ifs.” 

“To say that there isn’t a little bit of it that’s what-ifs and confused would be a lie. Like i don’t know. But to say that that’s all that it is is a lie,” she said.

Then, the former bachelorette asked Weber to give up The Bachelor to run away with her.

“Selfishly, let’s go catch a flight,” she said.  

“I don’t know what to do right now at all. At all. Oh my god,” he said with his head in her lap.

After a long, glittery pause, Weber finally said: “I can’t do this.”  

I’m gonna get back to the girls,” he said. And the two parted ways.

The women on the group date were collectively not pleased, and they let Weber know during the evening portion of the date.

Weber told the camera that he felt confused.

“I wanted to kiss her, yes. That’s what I was feeling. That’s what I wanted to do. I mean it wasn’t that long ago, I know, that we broke up so I guess this is OK to feel this way. I mean, I probably didn’t handle this the right way today. I am trying to figure out what the hell my heart wants and I don’t know. I think I’m just like really scared that I’m not where I need to be right now for this. I don’t know if I need to feel that love with someone else to fully move on. I don’t know if I have to fully move on to feel that love with someone else,” he said.

But as soon as the group date was over Weber seemed to be back to his old self, ready to date 20 women at once.
