The Real Story Behind Hannah G.’s Relationship with ‘Bachelorette’ Alum Chris Strandburg
Hannah Godwin: rap star, Barbie look-a-like, winner of the first impression rose. Fans of The Bachelor know Hannah G. as the sweet petite blondie who had her heart broken by Colton Underwood.
Hannah G. and Colton had undeniable chemistry on this past season of The Bachelor. Their connection was so palpable that it came as a shock to not only Hannah G. but all of us watching along at home when Colton decided to break up with her in Portugal to go chase after Cassie Randolph.
Hannah was left feeling heartbroken, blindsided, and confused. Confused because Colton had been hinting to her for much of the show that she was going to be the one standing across from him as he got down on one knee. To add to her confusion, his breakup was filled with contradictions–statements that led her to believe he’d change his mind and come back for her.
“I’m not gonna lie, it did make it hard and it did make me think he was going to chase me when he was like ‘I just don’t want to leave you. Like, I’m not happy right now. I don’t want to leave you. It doesn’t feel right.’ And I was like ‘then what are you doing?’ I’m confused. It was just kind of mixed signals,” she told Olivia Caridi on a recent episode of her podcast, Mouthing Off.
Colton wasn’t the first member of Bachelor Nation that Hannah G.’s dated
Colton and Hannah G. had a dramatic ending, but her brief relationship with Bachelorette alum Chris Strandburg was a lot more casual and easy-going.
Bachelorette fans may remember Chris as the man who jumped out of a cupcake to meet Kaitlyn Bristowe in 2015. They had an emotional breakup when Kaitlyn told him that she had stronger feelings for other contestants. When their tearful goodbye aired, Kaitlyn posted on Instagram: “A lot of respect for Chris. One of a kind.”
There’s been some minor reporting on Chris and Hannah G.’s relationship. We know they were either dating or getting to know each other this time last year because Chris commented on one of Hannah’s Instagram posts.
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.”
A source told Us Weekly that the couple had an amicable split and remain friends.
“Chris is happy Hannah is doing well on the show,” said the source. “She is a nice person and he wishes her well.”
The truth about Hannah G. and Chris Strandburg
When she was a guest on Caridi’s podcast, Hannah G. spoke about how she feels her time with Chris felt a little exaggerated in recent articles. It was only a few dates, and there was no real “split” because their relationship didn’t warrant one.
“We definitely went on a few dates. Maybe two or three,” Hannah G. told Caridi. “It was whenever I lived out in LA. He’s a really good guy. We were just in different parts of our life and I lived somewhere else. We definitely hung out and he’s definitely a sweet guy.”
