From pageant queen to 'The Bachelorette' season 15, Hannah Brown is on her journey to find true love
Before we get to see Brown begin her journey to find love, here's what you should know about the Alabama native.
Season 15 of 'The Bachelorette' will premiere in little less than a month on May 13. This season's bachelorette is former 'The Bachelor' season 23 contestant Hannah Brown. After bringing in the drama during Colton Underwood's season of 'The Bachelor' along with Caelynn Keyes, Brown is back as 'The Bachelorette'.
The pageant queen drama got Brown a lot of fans and haters as well. When the news of Brown being 'The Bachelorette' this season was revealed, some revealed they were excited to see her while some revealed that the producers made a mistake by choosing Brown.
Though Brown is known for her drama, she is also known for the impact she left on viewers when she was eliminated. Appearing on 'The Bachelor' season 23 Brown was eliminated during week 7, just before the hometown dates. Underwood chose Brown to take home and introduce to his family. But sadly after that happy moment, on their way back Underwood dumped Brown and eliminated her.
After having her heart broken, Brown revealed, "The desire of my heart is to be loved so fearlessly by somebody. I will not allow myself not to feel chosen every single day. And I’ll wait ‘til whenever that is.” And now before we get to see Brown begin her journey to find love, here's what you should know about the Alabama native.
Brown, in 2017 graduated magna cum laude with a bachelors degree in Communication and Information Sciences along with a minor in public relations. Though some might say that Brown is not good with her public speaking especially after seeing her have trouble communicating at times during her appearance on 'The Bachelor', what most don't know is that she became a part of Alpha Chi Omega sorority in college and worked at the university by helping clients with their public speaking.
The Alabama native has a keen eye for interior designing. She worked as an interior decorator at Gracefully Done back in Northport. In an interview with Tuscaloosa news, she said, “I love making my customers’ dream homes a reality." Apart from working as an interior designer Brown worked as a makeup artist and hairstylist.
Brown is also a pageant queen. She is the current reigning Miss Alabama. She started competing from the age of 15 to get scholarships. Though she might always seem like a happy go lucky person always, Brown has battled depression and anxiety. Due to her mental health, she took a break from pageants to focus on herself. And in an interview with Alabama Newscenter, after she won the title Miss Alabama, she said, “I was 100 percent Hannah and didn’t have a care in the world, and that’s why I think I won."
Apart from participating in 'Miss Alabama', Brown also competed in Miss USA 2019 but didn't make it to the Top 15. While most times none of the contestants would know anyone else when they appear, Brown had already known former contestants Caelynn Keyes right from her pageant days. This caused ample drama during 'The Bachelor' season 23. After being roommates during the Miss USA pageant, Keyes and Brown had a fall out which affected their time on 'The Bachelor'. “I was just in a high-stress situation with her and it was like the most hostile environment I’ve ever been in. It’s hard because it’s like, if that’s what you want, you don’t want me.” Brown told Underwood during her time on 'The Bachelor'.
Brown who gave herself the title of 'Hannah Beast' during her time on 'The Bachelor' revealed that feels like Muhammad Ali when she kickboxes. "I started boxing like three years ago, just as an exercise to get back in shape. But then I found out I was pretty good at it and I feel like Muhammad Ali," she told Miss USA.
Though Brown had her share of drama on the set of 'The Bachelor', she also managed to make good friends. One among them is her BFF Demi Burnett who recently revealed that we will be seeing a new side of Brown in 'The Bachelorette'.
'The Bachelorette' season 15 premieres on ABC on May 13. Check your local listings for more information.
