Where is Kelley Flanagan? The Bachelor contestant from Peter Weber‘s season was reportedly not invited to the Women Tell All special, according to Reality Steve. The episode airs on March 2 and will feature many other popular contestants, like Kelsey Weier, Alayah Benavidez and more. The Chicago-based lawyer made it to the pilot’s top six but was eliminated during an awkward three-on-one date with Hannah Ann Sluss and Victoria Fuller.
Fans were definitely upset about the 27-year-old being absent along with Natasha Parker, who was also sent packing ahead of hometowns. “So, although they made it significantly further than several women at WTA, the two most logical women who also challenged Peter, won’t be present? Got it, ABC,” one person tweeted. “So you’re telling me I had to sit through an entire season of champagne-gate, Alayah drama, Victoria F.’s voice, Tammy, and Peter’s indecisiveness to not deserve KELLEY at WOMEN TELL ALL. I’m OFFICIALLY DONE,” someone else added. “So, Kelley left The Bachelor with the worst edit [and] wasn’t invited to Women Tell All because she’s too real and doesn’t deal with producer manipulation? B.S,” another tweet read.
Kelley went out with a bang during the intimate group date. Although she remained relatively low-key the entire season, the Bachelor Nation babe seemingly called the other ladies “children.” She noted that she also thought Peter had an “easy decision” with her. Of course, some fans think the episode was edited to put her in a more negative light, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
She had a unique position in the show because she happened to meet the leading man prior to filming in a hotel lobby. “I didn’t know if I wanted to do the show, and I was like, there will be a sign if I should do this. Then, a month ago, I randomly ran into him in a hotel lobby. I introduced myself,” the Midwest beauty explained during night one.
The feeling was mutual. “I was so happy she came tonight, and it was that spark that was making my heart beat a little bit faster, and I was really excited,” Peter dished in his confessional about the contestant.
Hopefully, this isn’t the end of the road for Kelley in Bachelor Nation. Paradise, maybe?
