Scroll down for MAJOR Bachelorette spoilers, including which franchise alum was spotted shooting intro videos and what we know about her first batch of suitors.
Who will be the next Bachelorette?
According to Reality Steve, Hannah Brown will be handing out the roses next season on The Bachelorette. The pageant queen was seen filming at her alma mater, the University of Alabama, over the weekend and is scheduled to meet her men on Thursday, March 14.
The 24-year-old might be a surprising choice to some given that she was sent home by Colton in Week 7 during a one-on-one date before hometowns. Though she didn’t make it to the Top 4, the former Miss Alabama accumulated over 500,000 Instagram followers during her time on the show.
Thanks to RS, we also have our first look at some of the guys who will be competing for her heart. Scroll down for more info about this year’s cast members.
