The Bachelor‘s Peter Weber is on everyone’s mind right now, but there are still a couple of things you don’t know about the Delta pilot. He shared some behind the scenes secrets from his season including unseen “Champagne Gate” details. Plus, Hannah Brown’s Bachelor season wasn’t the first time Peter auditioned for the show. Keep reading because Soap Dirt’s got five facts you might not know about Peter.
The Bachelor: Peter Weber Took a Champagne Shower on The Bachelor
Many Bachelor fans watched as Hannah Ann Sluss popped Kelsey Weier’s special bottle of champagne. The fallout of the mix up became what is now known as ‘Champagne Gate’. But afterward, Peter Weber popped another bottle with Kelsey and it splattered all over her face when she went to drink out of it.
What you didn’t see on The Bachelor was Peter Weber’s attempt at making the emotional woman feel better. In a recent interview, he said he poured the rest of the bottle of bubbly over his face. Yet, for some reason, it didn’t make the final cut.
Peter Felt a Connection With Hannah Brown Before Meeting
Peter Weber admitted to watching Hannah Brown on Colton Underwood’s season of ABC’s The Bachelor. In fact, he felt a strong connection during her awkward one-on-one date with last season’s leading man on her birthday. Her real and raw emotions drew him in.
Coincidentally, when he was a contestant on the Bachelorette, he got a one-on-one with Hannah on her birthday, too. Then, he would go on to be one of the finalists, only to be let go at the end.
Peter Weber Says Chase Rice Concert Was Awkwardest Moment
According to Peter Weber, his date at Cedar Point Theme Park in Ohio with Victoria Fuller was the most awkward moment of this season of The Bachelor. It ended with a private concert by country music star Chase Rice, who actually previously dated Victoria. But Peter didn’t know that at the time.
So, he says looking back at himself on The Bachelor talking about having Chase perform at their wedding is extremely uncomfortable. Also, watching himself dance during the date was something else he found a little bit awkward.
Wants Dustin Kendrick to be the Next Bachelor
If Peter could pick any of his fellow Bachelorette contestants to be the next leading man, he would pick Dustin Kendrick. If you don’t remember Dustin, he’s a 30-year-old real estate broker from Chicago. His most notable achievement on the show was getting the group date rose after the second week’s roller derby outing.
Sadly, Dustin was eliminated in week seven along with Dylan Barbour. But Peter Weber said he’d love to see Dustin back as the “2021 Bachelor”.
Peter Weber Applied About 6 Years Ago
Although Peter was cast for The Bachelorette 15th season, he actually applied for the show years before. The now 28-year-old pilot says he initially filled out an application when he was just 22. But he hadn’t heard anything until Hannah Brown’s season when a producer called him and another one messaged him on social media. Yet, it all worked out in the end because he’s now the star of his own season.
