Prior to The Bachelor premiere, ABC teased Brown’s return on Weber’s season. And Brown actually made two appearances. On limo night, Brown popped up in a red dress to return Weber’s pin he gifted her on the first night of The Bachelorette.

“I want you to find that person, so I brought these back for you,” Brown told Weber, handing him the wings. “You’re gonna be great. I am really happy for you.”

Then when speaking with the women in The Bachelor mansion, Weber shared her brief appearance gave him “hope” about finding love again on the reality series.

“Thank you for being courageous and taking this chance with me,” Weber said.

Meanwhile, Brown showed up for the second group date with Kelsey Weier, Sydney Hightower, Payton Moran, Natasha Parker, Alexa Caves, Mykenna Dorn, Alayah Benavidez , Savannah Mullins, and Lauren Jones. However, things got a little awkward when Brown told the women the windmill story.
