Why Did Peter Weber Choose Kelley Flanagan? The Former Bachelor Speaks Out

Peter Weber is opening up about why he’s now dating Kelley Flanagan, despite the fact that he sent her home on The Bachelor. *Grabs popcorn*

Weber filmed a Cameo video that recently surfaced online, which features the 28-year-old pilot giving the “inside scoop” about his new girlfriend. Weber revealed that while he still believes in The Bachelor format, it didn’t work for him and Flanagan.

“To be completely honest, I think just the nature of the show, it definitely works, and I’ve said that since day one, I still believe it works,” he said. “But I think specifically for the type of relationship between Kelley and myself, it just wasn’t the most organic situation if it was going to actually work. And that’s OK—that’s totally OK because each relationship is different.”

Weber also confirmed he’s happy with the outcome, adding, “Obviously we’ll see what the future holds for Kelley and I, but I think it’s a beautiful story. It’s definitely a beautiful love story of what’s yours is yours and it will always come back to you no matter what.”

“That’s kind of always been our relationship,” Weber continued. “We’ve kept coming back in each other’s lives. So that’s the way I look at it. Definitely an unorthodox way, but definitely worked for us in the end.”

One question still remains: Did Weber keep the engagement ring he gave to Hannah Ann Sluss? If not, we have no doubt Neil Lane is patiently waiting on standby.
