Hannah Brown is 'The Bachelorette' on season 15, but America has mixed feelings
After the news of Brown being the next bachelorette was announced by Harrison, it brought out mixed reactions from fans and viewers.
Time to say goodbye to 'The Bachelor' season 23, and now on with 'The Bachelorette' season 15. Tuesday night when the second part of the finale for 'The Bachelor' season 23 aired, Chris Harrison revealed that Alabama native, Hannah Brown will be the next bachelorette.
Though this news left some confused because Brown wasn't one among the final 3 contestants, it overall wasn't that surprising because most fans and viewers were already rooting for Brown to be the next bachelorette.
Brown caught the attention of everyone including Colton Underwood early on during the 23rd season of “The Bachelor,” when she showed Underwood and all of America what Alabama Hannah was made of. She is a fun country girl who is unapologetically herself.
Brown was eliminated from 'The Bachelor' the same evening after meeting Colton’s family in Denver. Now after having time to heal from her heartbreak, Brown is ready to begin her journey as the next bachelorette.
However, when the news of Brown being the next bachelorette was announced by Harrison, it brought out mixed reactions from fans and viewers. "Does anyone else feel incredibly awkward when Hannah B is on stage? It’s awkward and she seems so uncomfortable. This is going to be weird... #TheBacheloFinale #TheBachelor," wrote a fan. While another added, "I’m completely over the bachelor now that Hannah B. is the next bachelorette #TheBachelorFinale."
Some fans, on the other hand, were even excited for Brown. "I was rooting for Hannah B to be the next #TheBachelorette ! I’m so happy for her!" said a fan. Adding to that another fan wrote, "SPOILERS I guess but I'm honestly so excited for Hannah B as the bachelorette, she is fun and cute and real. I'm here for it #TheBachelor #TheBachelorette."
Born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Brown 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.
While she was on 'The Bachelor' season 23 her rivalry with fellow contestant Caelynn Keyes was quite talked about. And we also got to witness her unleash the "Hannah Beast." But now with her being the next Bachelorette, Brown is hopeful that she will find her true love. "I do believe that it can happen, and I'm just really just so grateful and honored that people saw my heart and that I get to continue showing that and that somebody will hopefully share their heart with me," Brown said during the finale.
The new season of 'The Bachelorette' is all set to premiere on Monday, May 13 on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
