Ready for round two? Bachelor Nation alum Nick Viall thinks Hannah Brown has a good chance of being the Bachelorette again after her emotional appearance on Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor. Fans watched the Alabama beauty admit that she has regrets about ending things with the pilot “all the time” during the January 6 episode. Although they haven’t aired how their dramatic conversation ended — the episode left us on a cliffhanger — Nick thinks Hannah’s odds of being brought back on again as the leading lady are high.
Hannah popped up during the premiere episode — twice. First, the former leading lady stepped out of the limo to give Peter back a pair of airline wings he gifted her when they first met. Nick hypothesized that their initial chemistry is what prompted the Alabama beauty to come back for the second group date, where she broke down in tears and confessed to Peter that she “f–cked up.”
“They probably asked Hannah to come on to shake it up and do that whole little wing bit … to mess with the women,” the former Bachelor in Paradise star began. “And, when she did, they were probably literally watching on camera being like, ‘These two people want to have sex right now.’ And then they probably invited her back and just kind of like, ‘Let’s see what happens.'”
During Hannah and Peter’s private conversation, the Dancing With the Stars champ said she questioned sending Peter home “all the time” and she had “no doubts” that he was going to meet her family. She added that she “felt a lot more than [she] thought” when they saw each other for the first time after the season wrapped on After the Final Rose.
While some fans were here for the exes to reconcile, Nick wasn’t quite buying it. “Hannah’s had a tough run in terms of the dating stuff. It didn’t work out with Jed. I think she shot her shot with Tyler, he kind of was like, ‘Meh.’ And that’s how, it kind of comes across, like, just keep going down the list,” he said.
There’s so much Bachelor drama and we’re only one week down. We can’t wait to see what happens next!
