Bachelor Pete Weber Talks Emotional Meetup with Hannah Brown

Peter Weber is shedding some light on his meetup with Hannah Brown on the upcoming season of “The Bachelor.”

Weber told People magazine he was taken by surprise when she dropped in, revealing, “I was truly not expecting that.”

Hannah and Peter met on “The Bachelorette,” and made headlines after their rendezvous in a windmill. In the end, he was her second runner-up.

Weber explained, “Even though it didn’t work out with us on ‘The Bachelorette,’ that relationship still meant a lot to us. You are going to see just how much it meant to us when you see the episode. All of the emotions resurfaced. They’re just real emotions that come out between two people that at one point cared about each other a lot.” The 28-year-old pilot said he was “definitely blindsided” when Hannah ended things.

“I was really invested in that relationship with Hannah and definitely saw it going further than it ended up going,” he said. “But at the end of the day, she made her decision. She followed her heart and I had to come to peace with that.”

The reality star said “time heals all wounds,” but added, “I’m someone who doesn’t want to be with someone who doesn’t want to be with me. I want someone who wants me just as badly as I want them.”

Regardless he’s “thankful for how everything worked out,” saying, “I definitely learned a lot about myself. And I definitely became stronger. I’ve always been a believer that everything happens for a reason.”

Pete’s season of “The Bachelor” premieres January 6 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
