‘The Bachelor’: Madison Prewett and Peter Weber Had Different Reasons for Not Wanting to Be Together
Peter Weber ended his engagement to Hannah Ann Sluss because of his unresolved feelings for Madison Prewett. But after the two reunited during The Bachelor finale, they decided against pursuing a romantic relationship.
Since then, both Weber and Prewett have given interviews explaining their sides of the story.
Why Peter Weber and Madison Prewett aren’t together, according to Peter
If you ask the pilot why he and Prewett went their separate ways, he’ll say because they “proved [his] mom right”–they were just too different.
“The next two days with Madison and I, we had a lot of conversations and at the end of the day, at the end of that second day, we were just proving my mom right,” Peter said on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast on April 7 of his conversation with Prewett after The Bachelor finale. “And I’ve always heard that. ‘Mom knows best.’ And there’s a reason that saying’s out there and I think they do.”
Prewett agrees that she and Weber were just too different to make it work.
“I don’t think Peter and I were ever saying, ‘No, we’re completely compatible. This makes perfect sense. This is great.’ We totally understood that we had at that point lived two totally different lives and that we had different perspectives on things,” she said in her interview with Off The Vine.

But Prewett also gave additional reasons for why she and Weber didn’t work out. For one, she didn’t want to enter into a relationship where the trust had been compromised (as she felt Weber did with his Fantasy Suites). She also didn’t feel welcomed by Weber’s family.
“We took a couple days, it was a lot of long conversations, a lot of tears, a lot of smiles, a lot of every kind of emotion, a lot of back and forth. But we finally got to a place where we realized with everything that’s happened, this isn’t necessarily the best foundation to be starting a relationship,” she said.
Prewett continued: “You want to start a relationship with trust, you want to start a relationship where you feel safe and you feel comfortable and you feel just welcomed by that person, by the people they care about around them and I didn’t feel that way.”
Additionally, Prewett wants to remind Bachelor Nation that she and Weber never officially got back together.
“Everyone’s been like that was the shortest relationship in the history of The Bachelor, but what I would say to that is we came into that evening not together and we left that evening not together. We said in that moment, ‘I love you and I want to see if this can work,’ but we never said we’re in a relationship… People didn’t realize that,” she said.
Weber is now dating Kelley Flanagan (from his season) and Prewett is currently single and isolating with her family in Alabama.
