No more Miss Alabama – Hannah Brown is on The Bachelorette to find love! That’s the message that comes across in the first promo for season 15. In the one-minute video released on Friday, April 5, the former pageant queen walks through a forest, looking like a fairytale princess while wearing a sash and tiara.
While wondering around to Grace’s cover of “You Don’t Own Me” plays, the 24-year-old ditches the sash, crown and chiffon skirt to reveal that she’s just Hannah, in a killer pantsuit, looking for her perfect match. “Think you know her?” the promo asks. “Think again.”
The forest setting gave off quite a Britney Spears circa 2005 vibe as it was set in almost an identical location – and Hannah’s wearing a similar dress as the pop star! – as Spears’ Fantasy fragrance commercial.
“My journey on The Bachelor was interesting. I definitely grew, but I had ups and downs,” the Alabama native said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in March. “There were moments where I did not think this would happen. I think the reason I’m here is because I was real, I was myself and I showed every part of myself.”
Part of herself is what many call Hannah Beast – her headstrong side that will return on The Bachelorette.
“I can’t wait to unleash the beast on some jabroni,” she said. “I would not have gone on this show if I hadn’t really thought about what was at the end of this.”
As for what she’s looking for, Brown just wants to find a good, kind man: “Ultimately, I want at the end of this to know that they know me and know every part of me, not just some version of myself that I packaged together and was like, ‘Do you like this?’ I think I’ve done that in the past, the good and the bad, and I want that in return.”
