Hannah Brown reveals she’s single amid speculation she’s dating ‘The Bachelor’ star Peter Weber
Hannah Brown has seemingly squashed speculation she’s secretly dating Peter Weber after his The Bachelor season by revealing she’s totally single.
“Am I dating anyone? Nope,” Hannah, 25, replied to a fan’s question during a live Q&A session Monday on Instagram, according to Us Weekly.
In fact, Hannah insisted she’s not even sure how to date at this point.
“I don’t know how to do it. That’s been a conversation this week,” Hannah said.
“I’m like, ‘I’ve gotta figure this out,’ but I just like to sit at home in my pajamas!”
Peter has been boasting about how the ending of his The Bachelor season cannot be spoiled.
The airline pilot recently told The Hollywood Reporter “there’s a reason” he believes the conclusion of his season will remain a mystery and “there’s no way” Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone and others are going to find out.
Peter’s claims have therefore prompted gossip his love story is still playing out in real-time.
Given Peter and The Bachelor host Chris Harrison have also been teasing an “unbelievable” and “unique” ending to Peter’s season, some fans have been questioning whether Peter chose to chase down Hannah and reconcile at the end — instead of giving his final rose to one of his season’s remaining bachelorettes.
On this season of The Bachelor, Hannah hosted a group date but found herself battling emotions and lingering feelings she still had for Peter after eliminating him in third place on her The Bachelorette season.
Hannah ended up monopolizing Peter’s time because he felt the need to comfort his ex as she expressed regrets over her final The Bachelorette decisions, such as getting engaged to Jed Wyatt and then asking her runner-up Tyler Cameron out on a date on After the Final Rose instead of Peter.
Peter asked Hannah to join his lineup of Season 24 bachelorettes, but Hannah seemed to suggest he just leave the show with her instead.
The conversation ultimately led to Peter rejecting Hannah and deciding to move forward in his journey to find love on The Bachelor. Peter didn’t want to feel like a woman’s third option or even just a backup option.
“I was just as frustrated [as my bachelorettes], if not more,” Peter told Us Weekly earlier this month of Hannah’s visit.
“And the entire time I was talking with Hannah, in the back of my mind, I was thinking about [the girls] and what that was going to do to them. And, you know, I knew they had sacrificed their time to be there, and give it a shot with me.”
And according to a blog Carbone posted on January 9, “Hannah Brown has nothing to do with the ending of this season.”
“I know people are still holding out hope, and I know you’ll have questions about, ‘Well how can he just shut off those feelings,’ or ‘are you sure,’ and ‘well what about this or this…’ etc,” Carbone continued in his blog post.
“All I can tell you and officially confirm today is that after you see Hannah and Peter finish up their convo on next Monday’s episode, she has nothing to do with the rest of Peter’s season.”
Carbone reported Hannah “doesn’t show up at the finale,” nor is the former Alabama beauty queen part of some dramatic twist later on this season.
“They’re not secretly dating, nothing,” Carbone insisted. “Sorry Peter and Hannah Brown fans. No dice.”
Hannah also called Peter “bud” on Instagram and wished him luck in his journey to find a co-pilot after the premiere episode of The Bachelor, seemingly suggesting there’s no romance between them now.
Also during Hannah’s Q&A session on Instagram earlier this week, she joked “there’s no way” she’s pregnant after an appointment with her gynecologist, according to Us.
She also revealed she “knows a bunch of people” competing on Peter’s season of The Bachelor, “which is kind of weird.”
In addition, Hannah reportedly confirmed she won’t be appearing on Bachelor in Paradise this summer.
Hannah just seems to be enjoying some down time, as she joked earlier on Monday, “Enjoying this Monday night without mascara stained cheeks.”
The Bachelor will continue to air on Monday nights at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, and Episode 4 is set to air on January 27.
