What Is Hannah Brown Doing Now? The ‘DWTS’ and ‘Bachelorette’ Star Has Plenty of Ideas
Not going to lie, ABC reality television just won’t be the same without Hannah Brown after a fully booked year on The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Dancing With the Stars. The 24-year-old went from having her heart broken by Colton Underwood and Jed Wyatt to winning Dancing With the Stars alongside her partner, Alan Bersten. But with the DWTS finale long behind her, fans might be wondering what Brown is doing now. And it looks like the starlet has plenty of ideas in store for the future.
Hannah Brown still wants to be in the spotlight now that ‘DWTS’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ are over
Long before the DWTS finale, Brown made it clear she wants to stay in Los Angeles after the dancing competition wraps the season.
“I don’t know if I really see myself moving back to Alabama,” Brown said, according to Life & Style Magazine in October 2019, touching on all the opportunities in L.A. “I feel like the Lord and just like my life, there’s so much more in store for me that I can’t even imagine.”
Then in November, Brown shared her plans for what’s next during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. The Bachelorette alum pondered over the possibility of becoming a writer, motivational speaker, or even a TV host. But ultimately, Brown wants to reach out to an audience. She said:
I think that speaking about my experiences, being able to write those down and process those, and then share them with the world I like holding a microphone and I’m OK with being in front of the camera. But all those things were dreams that I’ve always had. So it’ll be really nice to be able to pursue those moving forward. In what order? I don’t know. But we’re going to do it.
Meanwhile, at KIIS FM’s 2019 Jingle Ball on Dec. 6, Entertainment Tonight reached out to Brown about her goals for 2020. And now, after the DWTS winner paused her busy schedule for the Thanksgiving holiday, Brown admits she just wants to jump back into the madness.
“I had a break for a week. And I hated it,” Brown said. “I think I love a crazy life, I want to be booked and busy.”
The reality star also reminisced over the past few months, including her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and meeting Garth Brooks after presenting at the 2019 Country Music Awards.
“Like, what is my life? It’s really been amazing,” Brown said. “So I feel like I have more of that in-store. I’m going to keep doing what I gotta do to work and gain more experience and knowledge. 2020 is going to be my year.”
Hannah Brown joins the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ live tour in 2020
But what exactly does Brown have in store? On Nov. 25, ABC announced Brown will be joining Bersten on the Dancing With the Stars Live Tour in 2020. And when speaking with Entertainment Tonight at Jingle Ball, The Bachelor alum plugged her New York City stop at Radio City Music Hall on Jan. 28.
“I’m going to go on tour for a date in New York. So I’ll definitely dance again,” Brown said.
She also shared her thoughts on the DWTS tour in an interview with Variety, expressing her excitement to “meet some of these fans who have helped make this dream a reality.” And, of course, to perform without being critiqued by judges.
Brown continued: “It’ll just be really fun to be able to go out there and perform. I’ve really grown to love ballroom dancing and I’ll be excited to get back at it.”
Hannah Brown says she wants to write a book in the future
Meanwhile, still speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Brown revealed she wants to write a book. The former Bachelorette also explained she wants to write about her life experiences. Just don’t expect a Bachelor Nation tell-all.
“Just a lot of the experiences that I’ve had and what I’ve learned,” Brown said when asked what she would base her book on. “I’m not into a tell-all. Like, what is that?”
And despite getting a glimpse of her life within the past year, Brown ensures fans that they’ve only scratched the surface.
“I’ve learned a lot through my life and there are things that not everybody knows about me, that I haven’t shared with the world,” she said. “And it’s my way to be able to do that in this authentic and real way. So I think a book would be really cool to do one day.”
Hannah Brown will appear on Peter Weber’s season of ‘The Bachelor’
Of course, everyone in Bachelor Nation already knows Brown will appear on Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor, which premieres Jan. 6. And in a preview for the season, Weber asked Brown to stay. However, as The Bachelor was filmed from September to November — the same time period Brown was on DWTS — it seems unlikely she gets back together with the Delta pilot.
Then when speaking to Variety on Nov. 26, Brown was asked if she is still single. But it seems the reality star isn’t able to give away any exact details, as she gave a somewhat vague answer. So you’ll just have to read between the lines on this one.
“My heart has been completely focused on my Dancing With the Stars experience, and I had to give a lot of myself [to the competition]. Doing Dancing With the Stars is a full commitment, so that has been the relationship that I’ve been in — with the dance studio and just working my butt off,” Brown said. “But, as far as anything else, I can’t really say much more.”
Regardless of what actually happens on The Bachelor, at least this means Brown will be back on our televisions very soon. And quite frankly, we can’t wait. So stay tuned.
