‘The Bachelor’: Madison Prewett Spotted on a Date With NBA Player
Bachelor Nation was introduced to Madison Prewett on Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor. While they ended the finale newly reunited and sitting side by side, they ultimately decided against pursuing a romantic relationship.
Now, seven months later, The Bachelor alum was spotted out and about with Denver Nuggets plater, Michael Porter Jr.
Madison Prewett and Peter Weber
From the very beginning of his season, it was clear that Weber had a soft spot for Prewett. It was no surprise that she made it all the way to Australia to meet his parents. But, as fans remember, that’s where things really started to go south for the couple.
Prewett was upset that Weber had participated in fantasy suites with his other two contestants. So when it came time to meet Mr. and Mrs. Weber, she was more than distracted. The meeting (second meeting, technically) didn’t go well.
At the end of his time in Australia, Weber proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss after Prewett removed herself from the competition. But before “After the Final Rose,” Sluss and Weber ended their engagement because the pilot still had feelings for Prewett.
As mentioned above, Prewett and Weber ultimately never got together after the finale. And, later that month, the former bachelor was spotted out in Chicago with Kelley Flanagan, also from his season. They’re still together today.

After The Bachelor finale, Prewett wanted to focus on herself for a while.
“After I go through something big in life — like a breakup, a transition, a move, a change, anything like that — I really try and take time to make sure my heart is in the best place. That my heart, mind, and body are all healthy,” she told Elite Daily in May. “I take time to really get back to the best version of myself and make sure I’m in a great place.”
It seems as though Prewett is ready to get back into dating after her hiatus.
Reality Steve tweeted a since-deleted photo of Prewett and the Denver Nuggets player out to dinner in Columbia, Missouri, Porter Jr.’s hometown.
“They were seen holding hands in the parking lot,” Reality Steve captioned the post, as reported by Life & Style.
He added that the pair “were seeing each other” before the basketball player had to quarantine before the NBA playoffs earlier this summer.
While Prewett hasn’t spoken about any sort of relationship with Porter Jr. directly, the basketball player’s sister posted a photo featuring the possible new couple on her Instagram page, according to Daily Mail.
“My fav double date,” wrote Porter Jr.’s sister. Prewett responded with: “Love you” and red heart emojis.
