The Bachelor finale put viewers through a whirlwind after Peter Weber broke it off with Hannah Ann Sluss to follow his heart and choose Madison Prewett instead.

Peter's mother Barbara got candid on camera and expressed her preference, saying multiple times that he should choose Hannah Ann over Madison.

Barb said during the reuniting that happened live with Madison during part two of the finale, that Madison showed up three hours late to their meeting in Australia, telling her she didn’t love Peter, and that she wouldn’t accept his proposal.


“When she did come in… we didn’t get an apology from her, and 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,” Barb said. “As a mother, that wasn’t what we were expecting.”

"I know that I have love and respect for Peter. Therefore I have love and respect for Peter’s family and I will never say a negative word about anyone or anything,” Madison said in response.

Barb took to Instagram to post a video with her friends, singing “Stop In the Name of Love,” and telling fans she's "ignoring all the negatives."
