The Bachelor finale was even messier than we thought it would be. First, Madison self-eliminated. Then, Peter Weber proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss, without bothering to tell her that he still had some pretty deep feelings for Madison Prewett. Peter’s family was ecstatic that Peter had chosen Hannah Ann, but their celebration was short-lived as it wasn’t long before the engagement fell apart thanks to Peter’s conflicting emotions.
Peter and Madison admitted that they still love each other and, during the After the Final Rose special, seemed like they were committed to making their relationship work. While that’s good news for the happy couple, where exactly does that leave Peter’s family, who was so happy to accept Hannah Ann? Are they as welcoming of Peter’s relationship with Madison?
Peter Weber's mom is not on board with Madison Prewett dating her son
The short answer is no. Peter’s mom, Barbara, is especially distraught over her son’s decision to pursue a relationship with Madison, who she doesn’t think is a good match for her son. Barbara complained that while she felt an instant connection with Hannah Ann, Madison didn’t greet the family as warmly when they went to meet her. “She had us wait three hours for her to come in,” she said (via EW). “She didn’t want to meet us. We had just come across the world, we were exhausted… and we had to wait three hours. And when she did come in, the whole family, we didn’t get an apology from her. When I proceeded to ask her if she was madly in love with my son, she said no and she would not accept a proposal in four days.”
Barbara added that she and the rest of the family “want the best for [Peter]” and made it clear that she doesn’t think Madison qualifies as the best.
Chris Harrison said there's 'animosity' between Peter Weber's family and Madison
Barbara said that she simply doesn’t think the relationship between Peter and Madison will last. “Chris, he’s going to have to fail to succeed,” she told Bachelor host Chris Harrison on After the Final Rose. “That’s it. All his friends, all his family, everyone that knows him knows that it’s not going to work. So, we’ve been trying to help them. Would we want it to work? Yes.”
Peter’s dad wasn’t as harsh as his wife, but he did agree that Madison and Peter are two very different people who will have a lot of obstacles to overcome if their relationship stands a chance.
While Bachelor host Chris Harrison did his best to smooth things over between Madison and the Webers, the damage had already been done. “I tried to fix it,” he told Good Morning America (via E! News). “I was trying to, like, extend an olive branch and I was hopefully trying to leave on a good note and just couldn’t get there. There was animosity built up.”
