Hannah Ann Sluss is looking for a husband — on or off TV.
“It all just depends on where I’m at in life,” the 24-year-old reality TV personality told Us Weekly exclusively when asked if she would accept a role as the Bachelorette in the future. “I haven’t given up on love, I truly believe there’s someone out there for me, and I’m excited to meet them. I don’t know how we’ll meet them. But I know I’ll meet them and it might be in front of everyone else to see again, who knows, but not another national TV breakup.”
Earlier this year, fans watched Sluss get engaged to Peter Weber on season 24 of The Bachelor. Not long after the show started airing in January, however, the 29-year-old pilot quietly ended their engagement because he still had feelings for runner-up Madison Prewett. After the finale aired in March, Weber pursued a relationship with Kelley Flanagan, who finished in fifth place on the show.
“I really do believe [the show] works. And people should believe me when I say that because I got engaged and had a breakup and I still believe in it,” Sluss said while prompting her partnership with Poppi soda. “I think it works if you know what you want. If you know who you are, and you know what you want. If you have those two things, you know, at the forefront of your heart, then it can work.”
Sluss added that it’s “definitely a risk” to go back on TV as the Bachelorette — or on Bachelor in Paradise.
“I think anytime you’re putting yourself out there again, you know, it’s a risk, but you have to just have faith that you’re gonna make it through it,” she said. “After what I’ve been through, I’m not afraid of anything when it comes to dating. I’m not. I just feel like I’m fearless. Nothing intimidates me now at this point. So I know I can work through it and know it can be my own rock and, you know, just continue to put yourself out there. It’s like my mom says, ‘You’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince.’ I’ve [kissed] a lot of frogs so hopefully, my prince is next.”
When asked what she’s looking for in a man, Sluss revealed she had three characteristics she was looking for in a spouse.
“You would think that this is easy, but it’s actually quite difficult I realized,” she quipped to Us. “I want someone that loves God, loves family and is consistent — those three things. And I’m a big family person, I want someone that wants a big family. I want someone that, like my family, comes first and whoever I’m dating their family comes first as well. … And also my faith is important to me and I want someone that values that as well. And then third, just someone being consistent, like, I am done playing the games. I am looking for a husband! I just want something that’s true and consistent and is going to show up and not just say a bunch of stuff.”
