The last season of ABC’s The Bachelor ended as chaotically as it began, but the dust of Peter Weber’s love life is finally settling. Just weeks after announcing their breakup, both Peter and Madison Prewett are moving on to their respective next chapters.
If you tuned in to Peter’s season, you know that drama followed him wherever he went. He struggled with his feelings for many of the women on the show, any public display of emotion winning him over. At the end of his journey, Pilot Pete got down on one knee and proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss, but that didn’t last long; after a brief long distance engagement, the couple split because of Peter’s lingering feelings for Madison.
Even when he and Madison reunited in what was possibly the most dramatic “After the Final Rose” special in Bachelor history, the lovers still could not make their relationship work. They broke up just days after the season finale — no thanks to the meddling of his mother, Peter claims. Like his fading forehead scar, the Bachelor is doing much better, but he’s still in the process of healing from the stressful process.
While doing a spontaneous Q&A on Instagram, a follow asked Peter for advice on getting over a breakup. The pilot gave a candid answer that no doubt echoed his feelings. “Breakups are supposed to hurt,” wrote Peter on social media. “But I believe things happen for a reason, and you’re one step closer to your person now. You should never want to be with someone that doesn’t want you back the same way.”
Meanwhile, his ex is getting over their breakup in her own special way, except her particular brand of healing might involve a fellow Bachelor Nation alum. Connor Saeli is fueling rumors that he might be involved with the high profile Bachelor star.
In a recent Instagram livestream, Connor sat down with his friend and fellow ex of Hannah Brown, Mike Johnson, to shoot the shit. Ever mischievous, Mike asked Connor straight up if he was dating Madison. "I don't know, we'll see," Connor said cheekily. "I can't give you anything."
Either Connor is pulling a Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller by trolling us, or he's hanging out with Madison for real and is keeping hush-hush about it. I'll be honest with you: I kind of hope it's the latter because Madison and Connor would definitely look cute together. Give love another chance, Madi! Or save it for Paradise — the fandom will be happy either way.
