Peter Weber and Kelley FlanaganThe relationship was unconventional from the start.
During the premiere of season 24 of January 2020 The Bachelor, fans learned that in August 2019 the lawyer ran into the pilot at a hotel in Malibu.
Kelley met Peter prior to recording the show, host Chris Harrison said in January 2020. “This is completely random, but they met in a hotel where they were both for separate parties. She knew Peter – Peter clearly didn’t know her – she went over to him, and they met, and they both think this could be fate. ‘
While their relationship didn’t work on the show (more on that later), the pair also met after filming.
“My relationship with Kelley was just a lot of things that were kind of a coincidence,” Weber said in the podcast “Viall Files” in April 2020. “You go all the way back to the beginning, she and I meet before all this started, she got a sign that she ran into me. That was crazy. What I don’t know when many people know is that the show clearly happened, it didn’t work for us during the show. After the show I was in Miami, I had the chance to go to the Super Bowl with my brother there and ran into her for the Super Bowl on Saturday night. “
After their reunion in February 2020, the pair kept in touch while navigating their relationships with both winners Hannah Ann Sluss and second Madison Prewett. As viewers may recall, Weber presented Sluss during the final, but their engagement lasted less than two months. The airline’s pilot later revealed that he still had feelings for Prewett, who quit during the last week. The couple eventually decided they were too different for it to work.
After both fractures, Weber made his way back to Flanagan. However, Prewett suggested that he was still interested in entering into a relationship with her before joining Flanagan.
“He called me and texted, ‘I miss you, let’s get back together.’ … He had texted me two days earlier [he was with Kelley]Prewett claimed in April 2020. ” You told me how much you loved me and wanted to get back together and now you are the only person who was my best friend. It just feels a little bit painful. ‘
