The 24-year-old beauty queen is doing things her own way.
The trend of first impression rose winners earning the final rose had been standing for the last four seasons. Kaitlyn Bristowe's final pick was Shawn Booth (the two broke up last year); JoJo Fletcher's final pick was Jordan Rodgers (they're still engaged and planning a wedding); Rachel Lindsay's final pick was Bryan Abasolo (they're getting married next month); and Becca Kufrin's final pick was Garrett Yrigoyen (they're still engaged).
Still left on Brown's season are Peter Weber, Tyler Cameron and Jed Wyatt. The Alabama native hinted to ET during an interview days after her Bachelorette premiere in May that she might have ended the show's first impression rose streak.
"Of course I knew that was a thing, but when I gave out my first impression rose... that wasn't the reason that I [gave it out]," she explained, adding that she doubted whether she'd get a happy ending "most of the time" during her season.
"[It was] truly the hardest thing. I didn't want to let other people down, but I didn't want to let myself down. 'Have I been going through all this for nothing?' It's something because I'm growing and learning but yeah... it's an interesting thing," she shared.
Brown's season finale airs on Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. ET's live Bachelorette finale coverage starts at 10:05 p.m. ET / 7:05 p.m. PT on ET Live, which you can stream on your Roku, Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV device.
