‘The Bachelor’: Peter Weber Just Revealed Why He Proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss When He Still Had Feelings for Madison Prewett and Hannah Brown

If there is anything that audiences learned from Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor, it’s that indecisiveness is the enemy of love. It’s OK to not know what you want all of the time, but it’s probably not the best idea to be searching for a wife during that season of confusion. But alas, Weber went on The Bachelor and proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss, even though he knew he wasn’t ready. So, what made him go through with the proposal?

Hannah Ann and Peter Weber’s relationship

Sluss was an early frontrunner for Weber. She received the first impression rose and remained in the front of the pack for the entire season. But after the Fantasy Suite dates, it became clear that Weber was really into Madison Prewett despite major red flags in their relationship. When Prewett sent herself home, Sluss was the only woman left. Instead of immediately informing Sluss of what had happened, Weber waited until proposal day to tell her that there was no one else in the competition. He then proposed and Sluss accepted.

A month later, Weber broke up with Sluss, claiming that he could not give 100% in their relationship.

“I knew things were definitely off between us, but walking into and hearing that you couldn’t give me your full heart, that was very blindsiding to me,” Sluss said to Weber at the “After the Final Rose finale.” “You knew what to tell me to keep me with you. One of the most important things was that letting me walk away would be the biggest regret of your life. Words are powerful, Peter. Either you don’t mean what you say or you don’t understand the weight of your words and how they impact people. So which one is it?”

Why did Peter Weber propose?

After the heartbreak that Weber experienced when Prewett sent herself home, Weber wasn’t really in a position to be making huge life decisions. But he still pushed forward.

“I was struggling like no other, obviously in regards to what happened with Madison and seeing if I could actually do this, like the heartbreak that I was feeling, could I actually pull myself together, is it something that I truly felt like I should be doing,” he said on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast. “I remember sitting there thinking that it was my last chance to maybe go a different direction. I just sat there for probably like 20 minutes, just in my own head so confused like what do I do, what do I do. Just so confused.”

He, then, decided to go through with the proposal in the hopes that it would all work out in the end.

“I’m not obviously proud of it but these questions began probably before I even proposed and I know looking back on it now, that should have been a clear sign to me but I did know that I loved Hannah Ann,” he said. “I did know that I felt heartbreak in the past and I could get over it, I would get over it and did I want to possibly let this temporary pain, that yea I can’t have time to process it right now like a normal relationship and grieve it. Do I wanna let this possibly take away something or prevent me from getting something so beautiful down the road for the rest of my life. I made the decision to go forward and convinced myself that I was ready to propose to Hannah Ann. I’m not proud of that but that’s the truth.”
