As Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette wraps up, the reality star is beginning to feel sentimental. Not every Bachelor and Bachelorette gets incredibly close with the show’s producers but Brown very clearly had a special connection with the people who helped bring her season to life. She frequently posts behind-the-scenes photos and videos to her Instagram stories featuring producers, and she recently posted a series of photos to her page thanking the team for all they’ve done for her.
Hannah Brown’s Instagram post dedicated to her producers
“the ultimate #beastsquad,” she began her sentimental caption. “feeling all the feels because they are about to kick me off your television, and it’s becoming real that these people have to move on to another rose handler.”
She goes on to say that she maybe wasn’t the lowest maintenance of Bachelorettes, citing “breakdowns,” “meltdowns,” and “beast mode” moments that were so dramatic they couldn’t be aired on national television.
“these brave souls have been through it y’all. they seen the breakdowns, the meltdowns, the breakthroughs, and witnessed “beast mode” that could never be aired on national television. I was challenging. somehow, these people still love me and root for my happiness. regardless of what any outsiders might think, my producers (and all the people behind this show for that matter) put everything into making sure I shine, I’m fulfilled, and loved during this journey. Do they make entertaining television? sure—and they’re damn good at it too. but I’m thankful they always tried to put the human Hannah, not the Bachelorette Hannah first,” she wrote.
Some Bachelor/ette viewers think the franchise producers manipulate contestants and the show’s star into making unhealthy choices for the sake of good television. In her post, Brown is saying the opposite was true throughout her experience. She felt the show’s staff put her well-being before the well-being of the show.
Hannah Brown believes ‘The Bachelorette’ helped her become who she was destined to be
Additionally, Brown says she feels touched that her Bachelorette team believed in her and saw what she was capable of.
“I’ve learned so so much and I’m so thankful for this group of humans who challenged me, encouraged me, and gave me the opportunities to grow into the woman I always have been—and to be really proud of THAT girl. Thanks for seeing more in me than a people pleasing, southern belle with a goofy smile plastered on her face. she gone,” she wrote. “I love you all. (I also should say I’m sorry for making y’all cry sometimes with my fury, and for always being late. *however it was kinda fun right?—you’ll miss me.)”
