Madison Prewett and Peter Weber weren’t collectively after ‘The Bachelor’ finale

In an interview with Kaitlyn Bristowe on her podcast, Off The Vine, Prewett stated the finale didn’t go the way in which she’d anticipated.

“Those subsequent 48 hours [after the finale] had been robust for certain. I walked off that stage utterly blindsided and damage… Everyone’s been like, ‘That was the shortest relationship within the historical past of The Bachelor,’” she stated.

But Prewett needs to remind Bachelor Nation that she and Weber had been by no means in a relationship.  

“What I would say to that is: We came into that evening not together and we left that evening not together. We said in that moment, ‘I love you and I want to see if this can work,’ but we never said we’re in a relationship… People didn’t realize that,” she stated.

Why Madison Prewett and Peter Weber selected to not pursue a relationship

Prewett says she wasn’t made to really feel snug in her potential relationship with Weber. So they went their separate methods.

“We took a couple days, it was a lot of long conversations, a lot of tears, a lot of smiles, a lot of every kind of emotion, a lot of back and forth. But we finally got to a place where we realized with everything that’s happened, this isn’t necessarily the best foundation to be starting a relationship,” she stated. “You want to start a relationship with trust, you want to start a relationship where you feel safe and you feel comfortable and you feel just welcomed by that person, by the people they care about around them and I didn’t feel that way.”

At the top of the day, Prewett and Weber agreed that they weren’t appropriate. Prewett says they by no means thought they had been.

“I don’t think Peter and I were ever saying, ‘No, we’re completely compatible. This makes perfect sense. This is great.’ We totally understood that we had at that point lived two totally different lives and that we had different perspectives on things, but we knew what we felt for each other,” she stated.

“Madison and I, we had a lot of conversations and at the end of the day, at the end of that second day, we were just proving my mom right,” Weber advised the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast on April 7 of him and Prewett deciding to not pursue a relationship. “And I’ve always heard that. ‘Mom knows best.’ And there’s a reason that saying’s out there and I think they do.”
