Who had money on "two days" for how long Peter Weber and Madison Prewett would last after The Bachelor? Come collect your winnings. Last night, the pilot announced on Instagram that he and Madison, who he went back to after breaking up with winner Hannah Ann Sluss over Barbara's sobbing protests, have mutually decided to split.
"Madi, thank you for your patience and unconditional love," Peter wrote on Instagram. "You’re the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves wholeheartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward."
But "after a lot of honest conversations" — during which Barb was most likely watching from behind a potted plant — "we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us."
He also included a note of praise for Hannah Ann in his announcement, who took no prisoners during The Bachelor finale when scolding Peter for the way he handled, well, his entire season.
"If you want to be with a woman, you need to become a real man," she said.
Meanwhile, Barb saw this breakup coming from a mile away.
"He's going to have to fail to succeed. That's it," she said during the finale. "All his friends, all his family, everyone that knows him knows that it's not going to work. So, we've been trying to help them. Would we want it to work? Yes."
But let's not pretend this outcome isn't just as satisfying for her.
