Remember when Hannah Ann dropped that bombshell during The Bachelor finale about Peter Weber still having feelings for Hannah Brown? Well, the 23-year-old is opening up about what really happened.

Hannah Ann appeared on a recent episode of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast with hosts (and former Bachelorettes) Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin. While discussing the failed engagement, Hannah Ann revealed that it took a few months for her to understand what was happening. Although Weber proposed in November 2019, he didn’t ask for permission to see Brown until two months later.

“He told me he needed to talk to Hannah Brown because he needed closure and was trying to convince me that I should feel comfortable with that,” she said. “I’m like, ‘We’re engaged.’”

Hannah Ann also discussed that controversial moment between the exes during episode one, when Brown hosted Weber’s group date. Since Hannah Ann wasn’t on the outing, she had no idea what happened until she watched the show.

“I had not seen that episode of them all cozy, cozy up in a couch, him crying and her possibly coming back into the house. I had no idea, like none!” she added. “And so, when he brought that up, I’m like, ‘Wait, what? I know she came back in the season, but can you explain more?’ And that was kind of when that episode was coming out.”

Hannah Ann admitted that she still doesn’t understand why Weber thought she’d be OK with him contacting Brown. “That was the first red flag, and I was questioning my own self because he was trying to convince me that that was something that he needed,” she continued. “And I’m like, ‘I just don’t feel settled with that.’”

She totally dodged a bullet. (No offense, Weber.)
