‘The Bachelor’: Hannah G. Used to Date This ‘Bachelorette’ Alum
Hannah G. was an early fan-favorite on Colton’s season of The Bachelor. She was awarded his first impression rose and made it to the fantasy suite episode before he broke up with her and Tayshia to chase after Cassie.
Fans were shocked and heartbroken for Hannah G., as many of them thought she would be awarded Colton’s final rose.
Hannah G. used to date Chris Strandburg
As it turns out, Colton isn’t the first member of Bachelor Nation that Hannah G.’s been romantically involved with. Before competing on Colton’s season, Hannah dated former Bachelorette contestant Chris Strandburg in the spring of 2018, a source told Us Weekly.
You may remember Chris as the man who jumped out of a cupcake to meet Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe back in 2015. Or from his emotional send off–Kaitlyn told him that her heart was “elsewhere” and he had an especially tearful goodbye.
When the episode of their breakup aired, Kaitlyn posted on Instagram: “A lot of respect for Chris. One of a kind.”
Kaitlyn ended up giving her final rose to contestant Shawn Booth. They were engaged for three years before breaking up. After her breakup with Shawn, Kaitlyn began dating Bachelorette alum and fan-favorite Jason Tartick, the sensitive smarty from Becca Kufrin’s season.
Chris Strandburg and Hannah G.
It’s still unknown how the couple met and when they officially split ways, but the source told Us Weekly that the two had an amicable split and have remained friends.
A Bachelor fan did notice, though, that Chris had commented on Hannah’s Instagram in April 2018.
Hannah posted a picture of her and a friend sitting on a blanket at the beach with the caption: “hi I suck at captions rn sooooo” and Chris commented: “one too many drives thru Panera.” So we can assume they had probably been dating for at least a couple weeks by that time.
Us Weekly’s source said that Chris was happy for Hannah G. when he found out she was going to be on The Bachelor.
“Chris is happy Hannah is doing well on the show,” said the source. “She is a nice person and he wishes her well.”
Does this mean Hannah G. wasn’t “here for the right reasons?”
Colton’s season involved a lot of discussion around who was “here for the right reasons.” Colton was especially worried his contestants were on the show for reasons other than to fall in love with him.
Since Hannah had already dated someone from the Bachelor world could that mean she was more interested in the fame? We don’t think so. She was incredibly heartbroken when her relationship with Colton ended. And she’s spoken openly about how difficult it’s been to heal. She also told Colton, as he was breaking up with her, that she had been ready to move to wherever they wanted to start their lives together; she was all in.
Maybe she just has a thing for Bachelor Nation. She certainly hasn’t been shy about who she’d like to meet on Bachelor in Paradise.
