Dear Peter Weber,
I can honestly say I learned a lot from your season of The Bachelor. The catch? It was all in the vein of what not to do.
No shade, but you really floundered your way through the reality dating show. Since you got your bearings in Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette, I initially thought you’d do a pretty good job. But, not only did you fail to get a handle on your own season, but you committed a cardinal dating sin not once, not twice, but three times. I’m of course referring to the fact that you keep forgetting that exes should remain in the past.
It all started when Brown made a surprise appearance on the first night of your quest for love. Had you left it there, it all might have been OK. But since she continued to resurface and you even asked her to consider coming on the show to try things out again, things obviously went south. Eventually, your gaggle of girlfriends was able to move past this and focus on other drama (Mykenna and Tammy, Alaya, etc.). But then you committed to Hannah Ann Sluss (while still hung up on Madison Prewett) and reached out to Brown again to bury the hatchet.
