The results are in and Peter Weber is the newest Bachelor!
Though Reality Steve announced this spoiler a while ago, lots of people were still shocked at the choice. When Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette ended, Weber was only one of three men who were top picks to get the role.
Tyler Cameron seemed to be the best choice, as he was Brown’s runner-up, but when he began dating supermodel Gigi Hadid, he ultimately took himself out of the running.
In the end, ABC passed over both Cameron and fan-favorite Mike Johnson to pick Weber. So, who actually is Weber?
He’s a pilot
If you watched any of Brown’s season of The Bachelorette, then you know that Weber is a pilot. He came out of the limo in his uniform for goodness sake.
Last year, he landed a job with Delta Airlines, which had always been a dream of his.
“I’m so ready for this adventure!” he captioned an Instagram post announcing the job. “I’ve wanted to become a major airline pilot my entire life and today I’m so excited to announce I’ve accepted an offer to fly for Delta Air Lines. I can’t express my gratitude enough to everyone who’s helped me achieve my dream; thank you a million times. I feel like a little kid right now and I’ll never forget this feeling.”
He’s a big family person
On Brown’s season, we got to meet Weber’s family. The new Bachelor’s mom and dad met when his dad was a pilot and his mom was a flight attendant. His brother, Jack, is also a pilot.
The family is so tight-knit that Weber still lives at home with his parents.
He’s into nonprofit work
Weber has been using his social media to promote several nonprofit organizations. One that he has taken particular interest in is Seed to Mountain Ministries.
The organization claims to “empower women and children across the globe to move mountains for positive social change.”
“Awesome opportunity guys!” he said on a recent Instagram post about the nonprofit. “If you’re able to give to an amazing nonprofit, check out this video for a chance to win an all-expense-paid trip to Uganda, Africa with our team @seedtomountain. We will hand-deliver a check to the landowner which in turn will open a sanctuary for women and kids! Link is in my bio to give as well as to find out more info! Thank you in advance, can’t wait to see who’s coming! Dates TBD.”
He was really in love with Hannah Brown
Some people don’t come on The Bachelorette to truly find love. Weber, on the other hand, fell for Brown and really thought they had a future together.
“She was just honestly the most amazing person I’ve ever met so far in my life,” he said on the Bachelorette finale. “I’m just grateful for all those memories we made and being able to fall in love with her.”
“I really fell for her and I had no doubt that it was going to be us in the end,” he continued. “I really didn’t [think I was going home]. That was tough to watch back.”
And even though he is ready to find love again, Brown will always have a piece of his heart.
“I don’t think you can completely fall out of love with someone,” he said at the time. “It’s been two months. I’ve been moving on and doing my best with that and I know time will heal all wounds. A little piece of my heart will always love her.”
