Hannah Brown is one of the fan-favorite main characters of The Bachelorette. Just look at her followers on social media. She is the most followed lead actress and former contestant with over 2.5 million followers. A year after Hannah Brown directed her own season, she was in negotiations to direct The Bachelorette again. It didn’t work out that time, with former contestants Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams both leading a season. But would Hannah Brown be The Bachelorette again in the future?
Hannah Brown was sent home from Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor. The beauty queen from Alabama then took her love journey into her own hands on The Bachelorette. Many fans were in favor of Tyler Cameron, Mike Johnson, and Peter Weber. Some were against the “villains” Luke Parker and Jed Wyatt.
Hannah Brown became a fan favorite because of her no-nonsense attitude toward the men of her season. She was also unabashedly forward when it came to expressing her sexuality. Fans applauded Brown after she sent Parker home for the way he treated her during Fantasy Suites week.
Will Hannah Brown Be ‘The Bachelorette’ Again
Currently, Hannah Brown is reportedly dating someone new. However, if that relationship were to end, ABC would likely approach the fan-favorite to lead the show again. She was in negotiations to lead another season in early 2020, but ultimately turned down the network due to several factors.
Steve Carbone, AKA Reality Steve, claimed in his blog that Hannah Brown was ABC’s “top choice” for The Bachelorette in 2020 but it didn’t work out because “they couldn’t agree on money.” And in his latest predictions for the next season of The Bachelorette, he said it’s possible the network could choose someone from a previous season of The Bachelor.
As for Hannah Brown herself, she has said she is open to it. “I think being The Bachelorette is a way to find love,” she said during a live show for the podcast Scrubbing In with Becca Tilley and Tanya Rad in February 2020. “However, I don’t think it’s my only option.” Brown posted a YouTube video in November 2020 in which she interacted with a matchmaker and career coach, proving that dating on TV is definitely not her only option for finding a partner.
“I don’t know if I would do it right now,” she continued during the live show. “I’m really trying to focus on what I have right now – and that’s building a house and other opportunities.”
Since then, Hannah Brown has grown her lifestyle YouTube channel, which has more than 175,000 subscribers. “I might not have found love,” Brown said of her season. “But I did find myself. I’m more confident in what I can do and I’m working toward that.”
Regardless of whether Hannah Brown chooses to return to The Bachelorette or not, we hope the young reality TV star continues to feel confident in herself and proud of her accomplishments. It sounds like she knows what she’s worth, whether she’s single or not.
