What Peter Weber ‘Copied’ From Hannah Brown’s Season of ‘The Bachelorette’

Before Peter Weber was the bachelor, he was a contestant on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. Audiences got to know him as a love-sick pilot who liked to pick Brown up and put her on different surfaces to make out (pool table, jacuzzi ledge, etc.).

In a recently aired interview Weber did with BuzzFeed, he spoke about the differences between being a contestant on The Bachelorette and being the bachelor. Surprise, surprise, the pilot much prefers being the bachelor.

“I loved being the bachelor, for sure, more than being on The Bachelorette. The Bachelorette was awesome but I’ve never had that huge personality so group dates were always a little weird for me. I didn’t want to have to try too hard to stick out. So I always kind of battled with that,” he said. “But being the bachelor, you’re very lucky to have a lot of amazing women there trying to pursue a relationship with you as well. I just felt that role was a lot better for me than the other one.”

What Peter Weber copied from Hannah Brown’s season of ‘The Bachelorette’

Weber was also asked what he learned from Brown’s season that he applied to his own. Apparently, he loved something Brown said as the lead so much he copied it “almost word-for-word” in his season.

“I just told all the women from the first night–and I know Hannah said this her first night, I pretty much copied it almost word-for-word because I loved it–just be so raw and so vulnerable with me from the very beginning. I know this is a weird situation. It’s uncomfortable at times, but don’t hold back at all,” he said.

Weber wishes he would have listened to Brown’s request at the time because he felt he waited to long to open up about his feelings.

“I know one thing I did was I held back with Hannah and I was probably the last person to express to her how I truly felt. I always kind of punched myself for doing that. I wish I didn’t. I remember trying to pass that lesson along right away to the women: Don’t make my same mistake. I feel like the women probably took that a little too much to heart because they let me hear it every single second they could. Hey, I guess I asked for it. So I can’t complain,” he said.

Who Peter Weber thinks should be the next bachelor

The pilot was also asked who else he would have liked to have seen from Brown’s season as the bachelor.

“Dustin,” he replied without hesitation. “Dustin Kendrick 100%. He was my homie. He knows what he wants. He’s a very mature dude. Good dude, good to the heart dude. I’d love to see him have a chance. It’s never too late. So Dustin, 2020. Or, I guess 2021.”
