‘The Bachelorette’: Does Hannah Brown Still Have Feelings for Colton Underwood?

Breakups are never easy. Especially when they occur on live television. In Hannah Brown’s case, her breakup with Bachelor Colton Underwood was especially brutal.

She was sent home from the competition in a surprise elimination after meeting Underwood’s parents and professing her love for him.

Talk about harsh.

But that isn’t even the worst part. Brown, then, had to go home and watch Underwood fall deeply in love with someone else.

Though all is well that ends well and Brown is now the Bachelorette, we have to wonder if she is fully over her split from Underwood.

Does Brown still have feelings for Underwood?

In an interview before beginning her Bachelorette journey, Brown admitted that she still has a hard time watching the breakup.

“I think watching back the breakup always makes me a little emotional,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “But ultimately, he didn’t feel the same way I did and I want somebody to feel the same way about me as I feel about them.”

Though watching the breakup is hard, Brown has had enough time to process her feelings and move on.

“For me, there’s been time and he wasn’t my person,” she continued. “I think he’s a great guy and I want the best for him and I want the best for me too.”

Was Brown ever in love with Underwood?

Now that Brown is starting her time as the Bachelorette, some people are wondering how she could fall in and out of love so fast and be ready for a new relationship.

But according to Brown, she was never actually in love to begin with.

“I was falling in love with him but I wasn’t in love with him,” she said.

Brown claims that the portrayal of her love for Underwood on the show was skewed. Specifically, in the scene where she met Underwood’s mom and she asked if Brown was in love with her son.

On the show, Brown said that she was, but according to the new Bachelorette that isn’t exactly how it went down.

“That was editing,” she said. “I mean I go, ‘yes,'” she said nodding her head too enthusiastically. “I mean I know I’m weird but not that weird.”

She said that while she wasn’t all the way there, she was definitely falling in love with Underwood.

“I had feelings of love with him and I wanted it to progress and I think I could have been [in love] but was definitely falling in love.”

Will Brown find love on her season?

Just because Brown is over Underwood and ready to find love doesn’t mean that her fairytale wish will come true.

In fact, even host Chris Harrison has shared doubts that Brown will get the ending that she is hoping for.

“I wish I could guarantee [a proposal], but I cannot deliver…  I don’t know, I would love to be able to do my job and deliver this, but I don’t know if we’re going to,” Harrison recently told Entertainment Tonight. “It might be a bumpy finish.”

Before filming Brown’s finale, Harrison had no idea if she would get a proposal.

“Sitting here now, I really don’t know how it’s going to end,” he said. “I am hopeful and she is hopeful, but the way she wants to find love and the way she is going about this is really true and sincere. She is not just going to do it to do it, and as rough as it has been and as wild as it has been, I am not sure she is going to be able to get there. And that is because she doesn’t know if she will be able to get there. So, I am interested as anybody to see how this all wraps up.”
