Pilot Pete finally picked his co-pilot for life… even if the engagement didn’t last. During the Season 24 finale of The Bachelor, which aired on March 10, he asked Hannah Ann Sluss to marry him. Fitting with all the uncertainty of this season, Peter Weber’s proposal body language was tense and full of emotion.
After examining images from Weber’s proposal to Sluss, Traci Brown, body language expert and author of Persuasion Point: Body Language and Speech for Influence, concludes the two were "doomed from the start," adding there were visibly "waaaay too many personal internal conflicts from them both."
This isn’t shocking considering Brown previously told Elite Daily that while Weber appeared to be giving Sluss his full attention on their last date in Australia, his connection with Madison Prewett looked stronger and "super hot." (Wowza.) So, considering that Prewett eliminated herself from the show, and Sluss nearly didn’t show up for the proposal, it makes sense why Weber would look so stressed.
Elite Daily spoke to Brown again to get her insight on what Weber might have been feeling during the big moment.
First thing’s first, Brown senses that our boy Weber was a bit "conflicted" before going ahead and popping the question to Sluss. "I’m thinking he’s conflicted here," she says of the below image. "The corner of his lips are turned down. But he’s not showing sadness in his eyebrows where we’d expect to see it."
That being said, Sluss doesn’t seem to be walking on sunshine either. "She looks a little testy eyed here," says Brown, also noting those tears in her eyes don’t look like "happy tears either."
Luckily, the two eventually managed to get it together. "Here we finally see some real joy from them both! Open mouths and big smiles," says Brown of the below image. "Even some surprise with eyebrows raised."
By the end, the tables had turned and Weber was more into Sluss. "Here we go!! This is what we want to see from a happy couple," says Brown of the below image. "They’re matching each other’s body language with mouths wide open and eyes sparkling. He’s a little more into it than her leaning forward. She’s just a touch more reserved."
Unfortunately, things didn’t exactly go as planned for the once happy couple. For those of you who weren’t able to catch the finale, Weber wound up calling things off with Sluss to get back together with Madison Prewett. Sluss handled the breakup expertly, leaving Weber with these fateful words: "I’m going to go get my life back on track now, where it originally was before." For his part, Weber reunited with Prewett and said during the reunion episode that they will "take it a day at a time" when it comes to furthering their relationship.
Hm, guess I have no choice but to wait and see what happens now.
