THE NEW “BACHELORETTE” 2019 STAR: Hannah Brown, aka Hannah Beast, aka Hannah B., is a southern girl and she has been picked as the next Bachelorette. She is 24 years old and is an interior designer, who is from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She was previously crowned Miss Alabama USA 2018 and competed in the 2018 Miss USA Competition. Unlike most Bachelorette stars, Brown was not in the top 4 of The Bachelor when she was a contestant.
“THE BACHELORETTE” 2019 HOST: Longtime host Chris Harrison returns for another season of the show. According to The Cheat Sheet, Harrison originally thought that the network might have made a mistake by casting Brown as the new Bachelorette. In an interview with E! News, Harrison talked about his impression of Brown on the After the Final Rose Special. He revealed, “It really was a trainwreck. She was kind of tragic, and I was scared to death. I know Bachelor Nation was like, oh wow, this is our Bachelorette? I know they were skeptical. I was … scared.” But, Harrison since changed his mind.
Harrison later told The Hollywood Reporter, “After night one — actually, about an hour into filming that first night — I realized: this was the woman. This was Hannah. She came in firing on all cylinders, controlled the situation, was funny, sweet, powerful and all the things that we knew she was. That’s when I thought, ‘Ok, this is Hannah.’ So if you’re scared to death, just give it a second. You’ll be OK, just as I was.”
“THE BACHELORETTE” 2019 PREMIERE EPISODE DESCRIPTION: “Hannah meets 30 hopeful bachelors, while Demi Burnett and Katie Morton gather intel on the men; 22 suitors remain at the end of the night.”
