Love is a battlefield!
In fact, the 28-year-old pilot, who's been perfectly dubbed Pilot Pete, really believed he and the Dancing With the Stars winner had another shot at love after the ABC show was over.
"At [After the Final Rose], I was prepared to give it a shot and I knew there was a chance for The Bachelor, and I was gonna say no to the show," the reality TV personality shared, after being let go from The Bachelorette. "'Cause I saw her for the first time after the show... She said that she actually moved out to close to where I was living. I was like, 'Let's meet up.' We had agreed and I honestly got excited, and [thought] maybe this isn't over yet."
