‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan Engagement Rumors Debunked
The Bachelor couple Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan, might be engaged, but it’s not official. Rumors started swirling around on Nov. 15, 2020, that a possible “Save the Date” went out. Here’s what we know.
‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan’s relationship was ‘serendipitous’
Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan met randomly before filming The Bachelor. On Aug. 18, 2019, the 28-year-old attorney spotted the future Bachelor lead in the Four Seasons Westlake Village lobby. One year later, the two are in love and often share videos and photos of their adventures.
“A year ago today, I met this one in a hotel lobby,” Weber captioned a video on Instagram. “We danced the night away and then went our separate ways. I truly didn’t know if I’d see her again. This life is beautiful, beautiful. Let’s see what’s next.”
The two connected again while filming The Bachelor, but Weber sent home Flanagan during week 7. During the finale, the 29-year-old pilot proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss. However, they broke off their engagement before the “After the Rose” because Weber still had feelings for runner-up Madison Prewett.
Flanagan and Weber met and exchanged phone numbers when they ran into each other at Super Bowl LIII. Prewett and Weber decided two days after the “After the Rose” episode that they were too different to continue in a relationship. Then only a few weeks later, Flanagan and Weber were spotted quarantining together in Chicago, Illinois.
“My relationship with Kelley has just been a lot of things that have kind of been serendipitous,” Weber said on the Viall Files podcast in April 2020.
Where did the Weber and Flanagan engagement rumors begin?
A Bachelor fan account on Instagram leaked the rumor on Nov. 5, 2020, that Weber and Flanagan were engaged.
“Rumor has it that these three are engaged, so that’ll be a fun thanksgiving,” the Instagram user, inthebach, captioned a photo of Flanagan, Weber, and the pilot’s mother, Barbara Weber.
Another private Instagram account, deuxmoi, also shared the news, claiming that Kelley’s sorority sister leaked the information. The friend claimed she had received a “Save the Date.”
The Bachelor fans on Reddit quickly spotted the two fan accounts alleging the engagement. Fans upvoted the post over 1,000 times and are excited for the couple if it is true.
“They did have a photoshoot last weekend,” one fan wrote on Reddit. “I wondered if it was engagement photos. I wouldn’t be surprised.”
Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan are very likely not engaged
Fans point out several reasons why the “unverified tea” is probably not true about Weber and Flanagan.
“I could easily be wrong, but I don’t see them sending out save the dates before announcing their engagement?” another fan wrote. “Odds are SOMEONE would leak that info.”
The couple shares photos and videos of their travels and meeting each other’s families very often on Instagram. They post Instagram Stories daily and share their lives with their fans. It seems unlikely that they would send a “Save the Date” card for their wedding before sharing the news of their engagement with their fans.
“If they are engaged, we would have already seen a post from Barb,” one viewer added about Weber’s mother.
Barbara Weber has an Instagram account, too, where she often shares photos of her two sons and their girlfriends. Viewers believe that she would break the news simultaneously with the happy couple long before sending “Save the Date”s.
Additionally, one of the fan accounts that leaked the news has a suspicious tagline. It reads “this account does not claim any information published is based in fact.”
There is no proof that The Bachelor couple Weber and Flanagan are engaged, but fans hope that it happens at some point.
