Dancing With the Stars fans might have shipped Hannah Brown with her partner, Alan Bersten, throughout the 28th season of the ABC reality competition. But as new episodes of The Bachelor approach on Jan. 6, the network has been dropping hints about the former Bachelorette‘s involvement with Peter Weber — aka Pilot Pete — this season. And quite frankly, viewers don’t know how to feel. So are Brown and Weber still together after The Bachelor? The filming timeline of the dating series doesn’t exactly match up with Brown’s DWTS schedule.
What happened to Peter Weber and Hannah Brown on ‘The Bachelorette’?
In case you don’t remember, Weber met Brown during her season of The Bachelorette. The Delta pilot made it to Brown’s final three men, alongside Tyler Cameron and Jed Wyatt. However, Weber became the second runner-up, and Brown eventually picked Wyatt. But not before the now-famous night in a windmill.
While calling out Luke Parker on slut-shaming during their Fantasy Suite date, Brown told him she slept with another contestant in a Grecian windmill — twice. Then in The Bachelorette reunion special, Brown revealed the man was Weber. But wait, there’s more.
Brown also shared that she and Weber had sex in a windmill not twice, but four times. “I was a little dishonest about something,” Brown told host Chris Harrison. “Since it’s out there, and I did say there was something that Peter and I did twice. It was actually four times.”
Regardless, Weber and Brown broke up and Pilot Pete became the next lead of The Bachelor. And at The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Sept. 18, Weber confirmed he will always love Brown. But he’s ready to move on.
“I fell in love with her and I’ve been moving on,” Weber said. “I don’t know if I’ll completely lose all that love in my heart for her. And I kind of hope that I don’t because that will show me what I had is true and it was real. But I’m ready to move on and I’m ready to find my girl. I’m very hopeful that will work out.”
Hannah Brown goes on Peter Weber’s season of ‘The Bachelor’
Since then, it seems Brown and Weber’s relationship has remained distant, but supportive as both reality stars moved on to do their own thing. Brown continued to show her support for Weber’s reign as The Bachelor. Meanwhile, Weber went on to film his season.
But on Nov. 25, at the DWTS finale in which Brown took the crown, ABC previewed a teaser trailer for The Bachelor Season 24. And as fans got excited about the premiere, one moment stuck out that had everybody’s jaw on the floor.
“I’m so confused right now. What are you doing here?” Weber asks. The preview then jumps to a shot of Weber and Brown sitting together.
“Making decisions for my heart,” Brown said in the edit. “Because I know there’s still something there. And I would do anything for a relationship.”
Then Weber asks Brown to return as a contestant on his season of The Bachelor. And it seems the two get cozy, leaning into one another as if they’re going to kiss.
“Hannah Brown, what I’m about to say is extremely crazy,” Weber said. “What would you say if I asked you to come and be part of the house?”
Do Hannah Brown and Peter Weber get back together on ‘The Bachelor’?
Following the trailer’s release, Bachelor Nation went into a frenzy, wondering if Brown accepted Weber’s offer to get back together. But given Brown’s tight schedule on DWTS and the timeline of filming The Bachelor — shot between September and November — it seems highly unlikely Brown and Weber start dating again on the ABC reality series.
In an interview with Variety on Nov. 26, Brown teased what’s coming when she appears on The Bachelor. And while the Bachelorette alum played coy, she pointed out she may not have had the time to date Weber.
“My heart has been completely focused on my Dancing With the Stars experience, and I had to give a lot of myself [to the competition],” Brown said. “Doing Dancing With the Stars is a full commitment, so that has been the relationship that I’ve been in — with the dance studio and just working my butt off. But, as far as anything else, I can’t really say much more.”
Then at iHeartRadio’s 102.7 KIIS FM’s 2019 Jingle Ball on Dec. 6, Brown spoke with Entertainment Tonight. The 24-year-old echoed her previous statement, reminding everyone how hard she worked to win DWTS.
“I feel like if we put two and two together, I worked my *ss off to win that mirrorball,” Brown said. She also confirmed she was in the dance studio eight hours every day. “You should do the math and watch in January.”
Is Hannah Brown single or dating right now?
Still speaking with Entertainment Tonight Brown reflected on the past year, noting that the ups and downs from 2019 helped shape her into the woman she is now.
“This whole year has really given me opportunities to really think hard about my decisions and who I am and what I want,” Brown said. “Some of those times were not so fun. And some of them were amazing opportunities.”
She continued: “But I think those hard times and the once-in-a-lifetime experiences really grown me as a woman and as a person in a relationship able to be able to give later on. And right now, that’s not the case. And I’m great being just a si–“
Brown abruptly stopped, staring off for a split second as if she slipped up. “A woman on my own,” she finished. The Entertainment Tonight host laughed and asked Brown if she almost admitted she was single. However, Brown quickly moved on.
“But I think I’ve really grown a lot for whenever that day comes for me,” she said.
Even if Brown didn’t mean to say she is single, her remarks still make it seem she isn’t in a relationship right now — or at least she isn’t dating Weber. But only time will tell at this point. So stay tuned for when The Bachelor premieres on Jan. 6.
