Hannah Brown caught the eye of Colton Underwood early on during the 23rd season of The Bachelor, showing him what Alabama Hannah is made of - a fun country girl who is unapologetically herself.

Returning home gave Hannah the time to reflect and heal from her breakup, gaining a powerful understanding of her desire to be deeply and fiercely loved.

Now, with a newfound sense of self and a little southern charm, she is readier than ever to find her true love.

In the Season 15 premiere, Hannah returns to find her soul mate from an impressive group of 30 hopeful bachelors who are willing to jump the fence and bring out their inner beast, all in the name of love.

At the end of the night, 22 bachelors remain to toast the Bachelorette, with hearts overflowing and romantic adventures yet to come.
