ABC has announced the next bachelorette!
The franchise revealed during The Bachelor season finale on Tuesday night that Hannah Brown will be the next leading lady! She might not have found love with bachelor Colton Underwood, but now it’s her turn to hand out roses.
“I feel all the emotions,” she said to host Chris Harrison. “But honestly, I’m just really grateful for this opportunity.”
“My family has been really supportive of me and is really happy,” she continued. “They have made me who I am and so they trust me and love me and ultimately want me to have love, too.”
“It didn’t happen for me with my first time around, but I do believe that it can happen,” she said, tearing up after watching the clip. “I’m just really so grateful and honored that people saw my heart and that I get to continue showing that and that somebody will hopefully share their heart with me.”
Brown, 24, is the reigning Miss Alabama and was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Bachelor nation has mixed feelings on the franchise’s decision. How do you feel? Will you be watching?
