Friends … or more? Peter Weber and Hannah Brown shared a sweet Instagram exchange on January 6 after their emotional reunion on The Bachelor. The Alabama beauty admitted that she “f–ked up” sending him home last season in lieu of Jed Wyatt and Tyler Cameron, and they both cried. However, social media sang a different tune when the Bachelorette star wished her “bud” good luck on his journey to find love. What. Does. It. Mean?
Like many other members of Bachelor Nation, Hannah, 25, posted on Instagram to wish Peter, 28, good luck on premiere night. “Find your copilot. It’s your turn in the captain’s seat, Bud. Enjoy the ride!” she captioned a cute throwback clip of the two running with airplane arms during the California native’s hometown date.
“Thanks, Bama,” Peter sweetly replied. While this interaction seems relatively harmless, it has an interesting vibe considering the way things left off after their dramatic reunion.
Hannah first showed up in the episode when she stepped out of the limo, but she returned just to give him back the set of airline wings that he originally gifted her. “When I heard that you were going to be the Bachelor, I had mixed emotions, but when you said you wanted to find your copilot … I want you to find that person and so I brought these back for you,” she explained.
Although the other contestants were spooked by the pilot’s ex showing up, he assured them that their romantic chapter was over. “If anything … just kind of seeing her tonight has just given me more hope, you know, moving forward — with all these beautiful ladies — that this can happen again and I can find love.” Case closed, right? Not quite.
The Dancing With the Stars champ showed up again during the first group date where she divulged her and Peter’s dirty sex secrets on stage to demonstrate the activity that the ladies were all going to do. While it seemed lighthearted, things took a rocky turn when Peter walked in on Hannah sobbing. “I am really happy for you, but it’s just a lot,” she explained.
“A little bit of me was kind of hoping you weren’t just dropping something off, but you were coming in,” Peter surprisingly replied. “But I didn’t need that. I appreciate you bringing the wings back, and you didn’t have to do that. I gave those to you, but no matter what, you are going to mean so much to me. No matter how ridiculously emotional I was leaving that island [in Greece] — I was crying my eyes out, it was insane. You followed your heart.”
“My heart was confused,” she continued. “I don’t know what the f–k I was doing. I am really f–ked up. I question a lot.”
The episode ended on a cliffhanger so time will tell what unravels for these two. For now, we’ll keep dissecting their cryptic Instagram comments.
