Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette is coming to an end which means she is facing some of her most difficult breakups, and after part one of the finale on Monday, July 29 she had to say goodbye to Peter Weber.
The pilot was emotional as he addressed his breakup with Brown.
“She was just honestly the most amazing person I’ve ever met so far in my life,” he said, holding back tears. “I’m just grateful for all those memories we made and being able to fall in love with her.”
“I really fell for her and I had no doubt that it was going to be us in the end,” he added. “I really didn’t [think I was going home]. That was tough to watch back.”
He added that while he knows he will move on he said that he will “always love” Hannah. “I don’t think you can completely fall out of love with someone,” he said. “It’s been two months. I’ve been moving on and doing my best with that and I know time will heal all wounds. A little piece of my heart will always love her.”
When the pair faced each other on stage for the first time since she sent home, she opened up to him about her feelings.
“There wasn’t anything wrong and I know that’s probably hard to hear because I wish I could give you a clear concrete answer, but I truly thought you would meet my family,” she said. “I wish I would have known a little bit sooner about how you felt and you would have told me maybe. I was scared. I think I felt like you were scared to love me.”
“I always enjoyed our time together, but I don’t know if it was just you not exactly expressing to me verbally how you felt, if that held me back from emotionally jumping the gun and going all in,” she added.
“I knew I was going to hurt you, but I ways also getting hurt too because I was falling in love with you and it didn’t just go away. It’s been really hard for me to watch everything and watch how upset I was that day because everything that we had was real,” she said. “I was scared I was letting go of the perfect guy.”
The Bachelorette season 15 finale concludes on Tuesday, July 30 with part two of the finale where Hannah will choose between her final two men: Jed Wyatt and Tyler Cameron.
