‘Bachelor In Paradise’: Hannah G. Reveals Why She Chose Dylan Over Blake

Dylan Barbour and Hannah Godwin got engaged on the most recent season of Bachelor In Paradise. But not before a wee bit of drama. Coming into Paradise, Hannah G. had one person in particular she was excited to meet: Blake Horstmann.

She brought up his name in several interviews. And, as we learned on the show, Blake even flew to Alabama to meet with Hannah G. before filming began.

But then along came Dylan.

What Dylan loves about Hannah G.

Dylan fell for Hannah G. pretty immediately.

“I think it was our first conversation,” he said in a recent interview with Extra. “I thought she was gonna be someone else and I was hesitant. I talked to other people when I got to the beach. I talked to everyone for like five minutes and I was like ‘I’m not gonna be lazer focused.’ And then I talked to her and it was over for me from that point. She just completely caught me off guard. I think a lot of people don’t know just how funny she is and how sweet and caring she is about everybody around her. Yeah, I was just all-in from the second I met her.”

Why Hannah G. chose Dylan

In the same interview, Hannah G. was asked what it was that finally drew her to Dylan over her other pursuers.

“Yeah, flatter me,” Dylan interjected.

“That great hair,” Hannah G. quipped.

She continued: “I feel like a good basis of a relationship is a good friendship and we have such a good, strong friendship I feel like. We have the same sense of humor, we’re good at communicating… there’s obviously so many weird social things that are going on when you’re filming a show in Mexico and so just watching how he’d react and handling different situations and everything, I feel like that’s where I was like ‘you’re my dude.’ I think I learned how compatible we are moreso than comparing it to other relationships. We’re just very compatible I feel like.”

And the rest is history.

It might be a while before Dylan and Hannah G. get married

Dylan and Hannah don’t take their engagement lightly, despite their brief courtship.

“I was crying to him last night just because I was like ‘this is a big deal.’ Not a bad cry just ‘Oh my gosh, this is such a monumental part of our life.’ Now we don’t have to be hiding and everything. So we’re just excited to be normal and stuff,” she said.

That said, the couple plans on having a very long engagement. Though they’re deeply in love and believe they’re highly compatible, they’re going to take their time exploring their relationship in the real world.
