"The schedule is surprising," Weber told reporters of the Television Critics Association.
"Being on this side of it, very little sleep, very long nights. Dating that many women, there's only so many hours in a night for a group date, so very, very long nights. I didn't realize it was that long."

"It's so much harder than I thought it was going to be," Weber said.
"One of the hardest things of the entire season was saying bye to relationships because that's why I applied. I didn't want to say bye to them. And I really got attached to a lot of women and it got me in trouble at some points as you guys will see."
Adding to the pressure was Weber's own "The Bachelorette" experience. He knew what it felt like to wonder if Brown would pick him or not.
"You feel a lot more nervous than the other side," Weber said. "I would still say being on this side of it, being the one picking is a lot harder."
The premiere of Weber's "The Bachelor" season brought back Brown who arrived to return the pilot wings Weber gave her and host his first group date. They also hashed out the way their relationship ended on "The Bachelorette."
"The Hannah stuff wasn't easy for me to watch," Weber said.
"You film and then you go on hiatus like a lull and then you relive it now. That wasn't easy and you guys will see though what that all means."
Weber hinted that Brown could return.
"I think you guys can see that there is true, genuine feelings that are still there in the episode," Weber said. "We'll see what happens."
