'The Bachelor': Kelley Flanagan says ‘Chicago connection’ is why Peter Weber's mom Barb picked her as favorite
At the red carpet of the launch party of Chris Harrison's new Rosé, Kelley Flanagan, one of the contestants on 'The Bachelor' Season 24, had a casual chat with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW). The Chicago-based lawyer spoke about why she wasn't present during the ‘Women Tell All’, how it was like to be in the audience of the finale, how she would react if she was in Madison's shoes, and her friendship with Peter Weber's mother, Barbara.
She also spoke about being friends with Kelsey Weir and Mykenna Dorn, whether she would return to ‘Bachelor Nation’ anytime soon, and how her family reacted to her being on the show.
“Everyone's wondering why weren't you at ‘Women Tell All’, and to be honest I don't know. Guys, it's like all of my DMs, all my comments on my photos are ‘Why weren't you there?’ and I promise guys, I don't know why. I don't know why,” she said, evading the question that has been on the minds of fans for some time now.
“Last night I just got a phone call last minute, a couple of days ago, and said ‘Hey, do you want to come to the finale?’ and I said sure, why not? So, I ended up going,” She told MEAWW.
On being asked if she had seen Peter since she left the show, Flanagan said, “No, I haven't seen Peter. I think Peter’s doing his own thing.”

Flanagan was one of the only contestants on the season who won Barbara Weber’s approval. Barb made it very clear early on in the show that she was not going to be easy to deal with. Barb reportedly follows Flanagan on social media and actively comments on her Instagram posts. On being asked if they would meet soon, Flanagan laughed and said, “She cracks me… I met her last night. So, yeah, Barb I think has been a fan of me since day one. We have that kind of Chicago connection. I think Peter has told her about me before the show started. So I think she just -- I don't know. I honestly don't know why I'm her favorite.”
