Warning: Spoilers ahead.
To call last night’s season finale of The Bachelor a hot mess would be an understatement. To recap: Peter Weber proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss even though he still had lingering feelings for Madison Prewett. Eventually, Weber told Sluss about said feelings, and she completely eviscerated him for leading her on. They ended their engagement—much to the dismay of Weber’s, erm, outspoken mother, Barb.
Then, we found out Prewett also still felt something for Weber (remember, she walked away during Monday’s episode convinced their different lifestyles would make a relationship impossible). So she goes to Los Angeles for a second shot with him, and in the After the Final Rose special, the two reveal they’re back together and working it out. Again, this is much to the dismay of Barb, who can’t seem to get past the fact that Madison wasn’t immediately all in for Peter on the show. (But, um, Prewett was also a human being trying to figure out her feelings on reality TV?) The tension between Barb and Prewett was palpable on ATFR. Obviously, people on Twitter had a field day.
And they had a field day over something else, too. During Sluss’s appearance on ATFR—it was her and Peter’s first time seeing each other since ending their engagement—she dropped a bombshell. Apparently, there was another woman besides Prewett that Weber was thinking about during his and Sluss’s engagement: Hannah Brown. Yes, that Hannah Brown: former Bachelorette who had Weber in her final three and then appeared on Weber’s season of The Bachelor, clearly still harboring something for him Allegedly, he told Sluss he needed to find “closure” with Brown…while he and Sluss were engaged.
“Peter, we’ve been through a lot together, and I should have really picked up on the first red flag that you gave to me was when you wanted to reach out to Hannah Brown to find closure with her,” Sluss told Weber on ATFR. “So really, looking back on it, our engagement involved three women: Me, you still being in love with Madison and proposing to me, and you needing closure with Hannah Brown. That’s three women involved in our engagement that I was completely blindsided to.”
Fans on social media were stunned by this confession:
Hannah Brown has yet to give her thoughts on this—but she did “like” a Bachelor post that pulled out Sluss’s quote about Weber needing to become a “real man” if he wants a relationship. So based on that, she doesn’t seem too thrilled with him.
As for Sluss, she can’t be bothered with this mess anymore. She posted a stunning shot of herself in pilot gear to Instagram Tuesday night (March 10) with the caption, “Flyin’ solo… no turbulence accepted. PERIOD.” We love the Pilot Pete shade.
