If you watch The Bachelor, you probably know who 25-year-old, Iowa native, Kelsey Weier is. If you don’t, here’s a refresher.
In the second episode of Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor, which premiered on January 13, 2020, we get to know the girls in a different light. However, there were two girls, specifically, that captured the attention of the viewers. During the cocktail party, the girls tried to steal Peter away for some one on one time with him, before the rose ceremony.
While one contestant (23 year old, Hannah Ann Sluss of Knoxville, Tennessee) was enjoying her time with Peter, Weier was gushing to several other contestants about how she envisioned that night going.
She had been saving a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne on her kitchen counter for over a year, to use for a very special occasion. Weier envisioned herself opening the bottle with Peter outside of the mansion, on top of a lovely blanket by the fireplace.
The contestants were smitten to know where Weier had everything set up. That way, they would make sure not to lead Peter near that area. Before Weier could even respond, however, there was a loud popping sound, followed by an excited howl from Peter and another woman. That’s when the drama really started to unfold.
As it turned out, Sluss had popped the champagne with Peter, unbeknownst to her that it was Kelsey’s bottle. Whether or not the producers intended for Sluss to find the bottle, in order to stir up drama, is unknown. However, Weier immediately went to confront them, and a fallout between the two contestants occurred. Words were interchanged, leaving Sluss confused, and Weier furious.
Later on, Peter tried to make it up to Weier by opening a champagne bottle with her. However, Weier’s misfortune wasn’t quite finished yet, because as soon as she took a sip from the bottle, the champagne foam poured out and got all over her face. It wasn’t long after the incident that the internet turned that moment into a meme.
We have to give Kelsey a lot of credit though, because she handled it like a champ. She was even seen poking fun at herself, on multiple occasions. Last night, she posted an Instagram story, holding a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne, where she seemed to jokingly call out Sluss. The caption read, “@hannahann_sluss where you at girl?”.
The drama between them appears to be in the past, because Sluss was quick to repost Weier’s story. On Hannah’s story, she added the caption, “When champagne bonds two girls together…”.
Glad to see that they were able to put the past behind them and move on.
Tune into The Bachelor on Monday, February 17th, at 8 PM to see Sluss and Weier, as well as Madison Prewett and Victoria Fuller, as Peter visits their hometowns.
