How Colton Underwood rejected Hannah Brown on The Bachelor

Colton and Hannah’s last two dates were painful to watch. After a surprise visit to meet Colton’s family in episode seven, Colton suddenly became quiet and sullen on the way home from their date. Apparently, Colton’s was unsure of Hannah. He mentioned to his dad that Hannah told him she was falling in love with him during their Thailand trip, but Colton told his dad he just wasn’t there yet.

During the ride back to Hannah’s hotel, the silence between them was so deafening Hannah had to ask Colton if he was OK. On their final date, Hannah spoke about how much she enjoyed meeting Colton’s family and how her parents would be so excited to meet him. We know now that didn’t happen. Instead, Colton thanked Hannah for her sweet statements but then told her he wasn’t in love with her and didn’t know if he could ever have those feelings for her.

Hannah didn’t end up with Colton, but that doesn’t mean she’s willing to settle down with whoever wants to be in her life. During her final interview in the car ride back to Alabama, Hannah said she refuses to settle. “The desire of my heart is to be loved so fearlessly by somebody. I refuse to allow myself to not feel chosen every single day. And I’ll wait until whenever that is,” she said.
