Hannah Brown, aka Hannah B. from The Bachelor 2019, is the new star of The Bachelorette and show host Chris Harrison recently dished on what Brown brings to the show. When talking about the premiere episode, Harrison told E! News, “She came in on night one firing on all cylinders, and 10 minutes in, I’m like, OK, this is the woman. This is who we picked. This is Hannah. She came in and crushed it … You’re not going to get through the first episode without seeing Hannah come in and take care of her own business.”
Harrison then added, “If you think you know Hannah, if you think she’s just this beauty queen from Alabama, you’re missing the picture, and you’re missing the woman. It really is … it’s shedding that image. She really is this strong, badass bold woman that’s gonna take the Bachelorette crown by storm.”
This season’s Bachelorette star is a pageant queen, who was Miss Alabama USA 2018. And, prior to the official reveal of the Bachelorette star, Hannah Brown told Us Weekly that she would “love” to appear on the series. Brown said, “I would love to have that opportunity to meet somebody. That’s the desire of my heart – to be married and to have a family. I think that can happen on a television show or at a coffee shop and it’s going to happen for me someday. I’m not going to keep putting a timeline on it, but it’s gonna be somebody who chooses me and I’m gonna choose them back too.”
