At the end of last night’s dramatic season finale of The Bachelor, host Chris Harrison announced that the contestant who would star in the 15th milestone season of The Bachelorette would be Hannah Brown. After the big introduction, Hannah met a few of her suitors and even (awkwardly!) handed out a rose to one of them. The Bachelorette premieres early this year–on Monday May 13.
Check out all the details of The Bachelor’s surprise conclusion in our recap.
Sidenote: Will there or won’t there be an American Idol finale on Monday May 20? A one hour edition of Bachelorette followed by the two hour finale at 9?
Hannah Brown caught the eye of Colton Underwood early on during the 23rd season of The Bachelor, showing him and all of America what Alabama Hannah is made of – a fun country girl who is unapologetically herself.
After meeting Colton’s family in Denver, Hannah was left shocked when he unexpectedly ended their relationship that same evening. Returning home gave Hannah the time to reflect and heal from her breakup, gaining an understanding of her desire to be deeply loved.
Now, with a newfound sense of self and a little southern charm, she is readier than ever to find her true love, when she stars in the milestone 15th season of The Bachelorette, premiering Monday May 13 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on the ABC network.
Born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Hannah, 24, attended the University of Alabama, graduating magna cum laude with a degree in communications. She went on to become Miss Alabama USA in 2018 and used her platform to help others. Hannah became an advocate for those suffering from depression and anxiety, something she battled with during her teenage years.
Now working as an interior decorator, Hannah enjoys helping transform people’s houses into homes. Having grown up in a loving home of her own, Hannah looks up to her parents as an example of the kind of love she wants one day. Whether she is running around with her two golden retrievers, taking over the dance floor or belting out country tunes, Hannah enjoys living life to the fullest. All that is missing is someone who will choose her every single day.
