‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber Admits He Shouldn’t Have Proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss

Peter Weber got engaged to Hannah Ann Sluss on his season of The Bachelor. But the two split before the live finale.

Looking back, Weber knows now that he shouldn’t have proposed to Sluss. He says, even in Australia, he was questioning their relationship.

In a recent episode of The Viall Files, Weber says he should have just asked Sluss if she wanted to continue to date, not get engaged.

Peter Weber maintains that he was in the wrong with Hannah Ann Sluss

“I was 100% in the wrong with Hannah Ann. Ending that relationship… honestly even going back to Australia and, like, the engagement, I was so confused. I’ve never been that confused in my entire life and that last week was such an emotional roller coaster for me. I probably shouldn’t have gotten down on one knee if I wasn’t 100% sure about that,” said Weber.

So why did Weber propose then if he was so confused? He loved Sluss and was hoping he’d get over Madison Prewett.

“I do know that I felt like I was in love with Hannah Ann and she was just such a beautiful, amazing soul that I felt like I couldn’t let go of. And I knew that I would eventually move on from my feelings and my heartache from Madison. I thought that was the best thing for me to do in that moment,” he said.

Weber also explained how it works for couples who get engaged on the show once filming wraps. He says he and Sluss only got to hang out three times.

“I guess what people don’t know, and there no way for them to know… So after you get engaged on the show, and then you go on happy couple weekends. I got to see her three times, maybe. That’s just one of those things. There’s just no way to prepare for and it’s so tough to go from that whole ordeal, that whole show, and then not see the person you’re engaged to except for maybe three times in a matter of a couple months,” he said. “The foundation for that relationship obviously isn’t insanely strong yet and to be able to go through all that, no one really knows what happens, there’s all this speculation, all these rumors come out, and then not being able to see each other for that amount of time, it’s tough and I just didn’t expect it to be so difficult.”

When Weber and Sluss started to spend more one-on-one time together, he realized they weren’t a perfect fit.

“It sucked for me to admit to myself but I guess, you know, as we spent time together at the happy couple weekends, I just, I didn’t feel… I don’t know. A lot of it was my feelings for Madison, yeah, weren’t completely resolved. I hadn’t 100% gotten over that. And it just, I don’t know, it didn’t feel 100% right for me. And I kept trying to think that it was going to get better and it didn’t necessarily get better,” he said.

If Weber had to sum up why he and Sluss didn’t work out he’d say it’s because they “didn’t challenge each other enough.”
