The newest season of “The Bachelorette” premieres this Monday and all the focus is on who will win Hannah Brown’s heart. ABC announced that Hannah Brown was the next Bachelorette during the “After The Final Rose” ceremony on Colton Underwood’s season of “The Bachelor.”
Fans fell in love with Hannah B. during Underwood’s season, but if you’re out of the loop, you might need a refresher.
Here’s everything you need to know about Hannah B.
She’s a college grad and interior decorator.
According to Tuscaloosa News, 23-year-old Hannah B. graduated from the University of Alabama in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in communication studies and worked in interior design before she competed on “The Bachelor,” although she hasn’t shared whether or not she’s gone back to work since being on the show.
She’s a former pageant queen – and that came with a lot of drama.

So I'm Miss Alabama USA 2018. If you're shocked, I am too. If you are excited–sweet–I am too! The Lord is so faithful. I'm honored He has given me this opportunity to serve His people with this shiny hat ????. That's my goal this year–to love and encourage people anyway I can. Please follow me this year @missalusa on this incredible journey…it's going to be a fun one! #missusa #missalusa #rpmforthewin #boundforthecrown #confidentlybeautiful #bemorethanpretty
Hannah B. competed in beauty pageants from the time she was a teenager and even snagged the Miss Alabama USA crown in 2018. Along the way, she met fellow “Bachelor” contestant Caelynn Miller Keyes, and they even used to be friends. Miller Keyes and Brown made it known when they first started on “The Bachelor” that they are no longer friends.
That meant there was a lot of bad blood between the women on “The Bachelor,” but ultimately, neither of them ended up with Underwood. In the end, though, the two agreed to put their differences behind them.
She calls herself Hannah Beast.
As she proved on “The Bachelor,” Hannah B. was never one to back down from a challenge, and she called herself Hannah Beast… along with her signature growl. This included anything from not letting herself be afraid of a little drama from eating a bug on a group date, and it seems safe to assume that Hannah Beast will be making plenty of appearances when she stars on “The Bachelorette.”
She’s not afraid to make fun of herself.
Following Hannah B. on Instagram makes this one obvious – throughout her season of “The Bachelor,” she frequently mocked the things she said and the expressions she made on camera.
She’s not willing to settle in her relationships.

watching back last nights episode like… wow that one was a whammy. But heartbreak is a part of life— while every single hurt feels like it exposes weakness, it actually brings strength (powerful words of comfort the Lord placed over me from @lysaterkeurst —thank you!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ that was hard y’all, but I’m so grateful for it. I came back home a little broken for a bit, but a more whole woman for good. I finally allowed myself to be so transparent in a relationship, regardless of the risk. the breaking of me will be the making of me—and that’s truth! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “the good, the bad, and the hot mess”…ALL was shown and I wouldn’t have it any other way (yes, infamous growls and all)! I’m so immeasurable blessed for the growth this experience offered me, and I’m hopeful for whatever is to come! thanks for the love and support—my heart is full! ???? #thebachelor #bebeast #choosejoy #seektruth
When Colton made the decision to send Hannah B. home during their final one-on-one date, she was sad but didn’t allow it to break her spirit. Instead, she told the cameras she was willing to wait for the person who would make her “feel chosen every single day.”
