'Bachelorette' Hannah Brown Ditches Beauty Pageant Past in First Look at New Season
Hannah Brown is leaving her pageant titles behind!
On Friday, ABC dropped the first promo for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, and Brown, who vied for Colton Underwood's heart on the latest season of The Bachelor, appears to be taking her new role in stride.
In the fairytale-themed, minute-long clip, Brown stuns in a Cinderella-style, light blue ballgown as she makes her way through an enchanted forest. Wearing a tiara and a sash -- a nod to Brown's pageant past as Miss Alabama 2018 -- Brown looks confident as she struts between the trees as red roses bloom around her.
As the empowering lyrics to Lesley Gore's 1963 hit song, "You Don't Own Me," play in the background, Brown tosses off her tiara, rips off her sash and removes the skirt portion of her dress to reveal a sleek jumpsuit.
"Think you know her? Think again," the video reads.
After meeting some of her suitors on "After the Final Rose," Brown stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she revealed what she's looking for in a mate.
"Oh man they gotta be good looking," she joked. "... Just a good human. Good heart, kind, strong, but ultimately I want at the end of this to know that they know me. And know every part of me. And not just some version of myself that I, like, package together and am like, 'Do you like this?' And I think I've done that in the past. But the good and the bad and I want that in return."
When ET caught up with the franchise's newest leading lady at the "Women Tell All" taping back in February, Brown expressed excitement at potentially being named the next Bachelorette.
"I was genuine about how I felt and I truly did want the end of it to be me and it wasn't, but I still stayed true to myself and allowed everybody to kind of see every part of me -- the good and the bad," she said. "I would love to have the opportunity to continue on shedding that layer of just trying to be whatever I think people want me to be and just being myself."
She added, "I really believe in this process and I do think you can fall in love here and be in love and find your person, so if it could be me, that would be great. I think it'd be damn entertaining. I can guarantee that."
The Bachelorette premieres May 13 on ABC.
