Peter Weber is moving on, or so he thought. The commercial airline pilot and upcoming star of The Bachelor said he felt he was over former Bachelorette Hannah Brown after he came in third place on the dating show. However, things changed for Peter, 28, when she surprised him on the set of The Bachelor.
“She starts coming out of the limo, I realize who it is and jaw-drop,” Peter confessed during an interview with Access Hollywood on January 2. He believed he had moved on from Hannah, 25, when filming began for the 24th season. The Delta pilot will have 30 ladies competing for his love starting January 6.
“Before she came, before that first night, in my mind, I was over Hannah,” he continued. “I wouldn’t have taken this opportunity if I wasn’t...after I saw her that first night, I may have questioned if I was over her.”
As Bachelor nation fans recall, Pilot Pete came in third place during the 15th season of The Bachelorette and his most memorable moment was when he and Hannah confessed to having sex in a windmill four times during the Fantasy Suite date. Pete wants audiences to remember the chemistry that he and the Alabama native had beyond their steamy night.
“I think the most important thing for everyone to kind of realize watching this is everyone saw our relationship on The Bachelorette,” the California native said about their connection. “That was a really real relationship for the both of us with true feelings. We both really really care from each other from that relationship. Everything you’re gonna see is true and it’s raw and it’s from the heart.”
In the first full trailer of the latest season, Hannah and Peter were spotted getting cozy on a couch together.
"I know there’s still something there and I would do anything for a relationship,” Hannah told Peter, who moved very close to her face and said, “Hannah Brown, what I'm about to say is extremely crazy. What you say if I asked you to come be part of the house?” Whether or not the pair explore a second chance at love remains to be seen.
The Bachelor returns to ABC with a three-hour premiere on January 6 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
