Peter Weber Reveals What's Really Going On With Kelley Flanagan

Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan have been teasing Bachelor fans ever since they were spotted spending time together in her hometown of Chicago (via People). They then fueled relationship rumors after they started doing TikTok videos together. Peter finally addressed those romance rumors on former Bachelor Nick Viall's podcast, The Viall Files, on April 7.

Peter and Kelley had a unique connection because they knew each other before the show, however, their romance fizzled on the show and she was sent home before Hometown Dates. He and Kelley reconnected after the show during the Super Bowl in Miami. "Within our relationship on the show, it didn't really play out in the best way for us. It just wasn't gonna work on the show," Peter told Nick.

"Fast-forward [to] now, a couple weeks ago, I'm out with Dylan [Barbour] and Devin [Harris] and I was texting Kristian [Haggerty], asking her if she wanted to come out with us. She comes out with us, she's with Kelley. Me not knowing this. They show up, I see Kelley again... jaw drops," he admitted. "We chat, we end up hanging out and that's when I got her number. We started to communicate and just stay in touch."

Peter wants to give love with Kelley another shot

Bachelor fans assumed Peter and Kelley were an item after he flew out to Chicago to see her, eventually leading him to be quarantined with her. An eyewitness in the area told E! News at the time, "Peter was vibing and it seemed like, at one point, Kelley had his leg in her lap." Peter addressed quarantine with Kelley and told Nick, "She's always been supportive of me. Long story short, I wasn't working so I thought I'd go out there and spend some time with her, take her mind off some [family] things."

The pilot then flat out answered everyone's burning question. "Are we dating? No. Do I love spending time with her? Absolutely. We're not dating. Could I see that in the future? Yeah, of course. I'd be extremely lucky and very happy if that happened," Peter gushed. The former Bachelor, however, stated that he's taking things "really, really slow" after a failed engagement to Hannah Ann Sluss which was followed by a failed relationship with Madison Prewett.

Kelley similarly told E! News in March, "I think it's best for Peter to take some time to be by himself and figure out what he's doing, reflect on everything that's going on and just figure out what he wants."
