She seeks adventure and smiles at all times; Hannah truly takes advantage of opportunities to live life to its fullest.”
On The Bachelor, Brown said that she doesn’t date “just to date” and that she “dates for marriage”. Underwood said he wasn’t sure if he could match the feelings that Brown had for him. Underwood thanked Brown for her honesty and he said that he didn’t know if he was ready for a future with Brown. He said that he couldn’t shake her father’s hand and be honest about his feelings in their relationship. Brown was confused by Underwood’s admission but accepted rejection gracefully from him, but she was definitely blindsided. She also said that she wouldn’t want Underwood to meet her family if he didn’t feel the same way for her as she did for him.
Underwood said that he knows he shocked Brown, but that, for him, “it just didn’t feel right”.
