ABC/John Fleenor(LOS ANGELES) — Hannah Brown will be the next Bachelorette for the show’s upcoming 15th season!
“I feel all the emotions,” Brown said when it was announced on The Bachelor finale Monday, adding that she is “very grateful.”
Brown, 24, competed on the most recent season of The Bachelor for Colton Underwood’s heart but was sent home week seven.
The University of Alabama graduate turned interior designer hails from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and holds the 2018 Miss Alabama USA title.
On the “Women Tell All” episode of The Bachelor, “Alabama Hannah” spoke about her split with Underwood and where they are now.
“Ultimately, I was very shocked when I went home just because I didn’t understand why I got to get to that part of your life if you didn’t have those feelings for me,” she told Underwood about meeting his family.
“I don’t understand it, and it made me mad…Getting your heart broke sucks, but I grew as a person,” she continued. “I think we all grew, and I hope you’re so happy and you get to choose somebody every day and they get to choose you back and I hope that for myself.”
Brown also spoke about how her time with Underwood showed her what she is looking for on the “Women Tell All” episode.
“This experience and the relationship that I have with Colton just allowed me to see myself in a different way and be vulnerable with who I am and who I want to be and what type of love I want to have and receive,” she told Chris Harrison.
“It just really allowed me to see what I want,” she added.
She said she’s looking for someone to love her “fiercely.”
“I think we all deserve somebody to love us in that way, love us but know it’s us and fight for us,” she said. “Choose me no matter what.”
