Hannah Brown is heard saying she’s had sex in the season teaser

The season trailer teases a lot of dramatic moments. One that has people talking happens between Brown and a mystery man.

“I believe that sex was made for a man and a woman in marriage,” she said. “But I am having physical relationships. And honestly like, I have had sex, and Jesus still loves me. How dare I be judged by a man?”

She is also seen leaning in talking to someone angrily. “I don’t owe you anything at this point,” she said.

It’s unknown what happened to start this, but there a few theories. One is that Brown might have had sex with one of the men. That doesn’t seem to be the case.

ABC’s reality chief, Rob Mills talked about how The Bachelorette approaches sex differently now to Variety. “Sexuality and physicality are handled much more head-on now. What I think is so interesting is how The Bachelor evolves. There are no longer the barriers,” said Mills.

The chief continued, “So what you see with Hannah is the fact that we do address it, where we used to maybe just hint at it. Hannah took things head-on, and this is a woman realizing that she absolutely can own her sexuality as a woman, and she does that. She certainly shows herself as a strong, independent woman.”

He also believes having a more Southern cast might have come into play on the subject coming up. “She’s a southern girl and I think maybe some guys had preconceived notions and thought she would be what they would see in their mind as ‘proper’ or someone who shouldn’t have a physical relationship unless it’s just with them or the person she’s marrying, and she basically says no — she says it perfectly: ‘I had sex and Jesus still loves me.'”

Brown said she felt judged by a contestant

It’s still unknown who Brown is talking to in that clip. The star did give a reason for why she said what she said.

There was just a moment where I was in a place where I felt that I was being looked at differently than who I actually am, and I know who I am, and who’s I am, and I don’t want to be judged for that because nobody should ever be judged for anything that they do, because we’re supposed to love each other, not judge,” Brown told E! News.

How does the subject of Brown’s sexual past come up? And who challenges her on that? The Bachelorette fans are going to have to wait to find out.
