However, Alayah came back and interrupted a group date to clear her name and essentially scold Peter for allowing himself to be influenced by other bachelorettes instead of focusing on the strong connection she believed they had.
Peter therefore decided to welcome Alayah back into the competition, and he gave her a group-date rose to seal the deal!
Peter's gesture was deemed a "mistake" by all the women who didn't like Alayah, and now Peter is caught in the middle between feuding ladies, who are angry with Peter for betraying their trust on the show.
