Although things didn’t work out for Peter Weber and Madison Prewett after it was reported in March that they would no longer be seeing each other, Weber now claims they were never seeing each other to begin with. Telling ET’s Lauren Zima, he never actually “committed to a relationship” with Prewett after ending his engagement to Hannah Ann Sluss.
“To be straight up… we didn’t even get in a relationship again,” he explains. “I know they say, ‘Oh it’s 24 or 48 hours. That was the shortest relationship ever!’ We never committed to a relationship.”
As our readers know, on the season finale of The Bachelor, fans saw Weber and Sluss end their engagement weeks after his proposal. Then, Chris Harrison met with Weber’s runner-up, Prewett, who had broken up with the Bachelor back in Australia. She seemed interested in giving her relationship with Weber another try, so the pair were reunited onscreen. On After the Final Rose, they appeared to be a united front — though Weber’s mom, Barbara, warned she didn’t think they were a good match.
During the finale, Weber pleaded with his mom to accept Madison despite their differences. “I’m telling you that I love Madison, and that should be enough,” he said at the time. Despite those strong feelings, Weber tells ET that his and Prewett’s reunion ended with the conclusion they would just “talk things through.”
