So, you’re saying there’s a chance? Chris Harrison weighed in on the possibility of Hannah Brown being the Bachelorette for a second time and it wasn’t a hard no. The season 15 lead had a tumultuous engagement to Jed Wyatt, seemingly tried to strike up a romance (unsuccessfully) with Tyler Cameron and has now appeared on Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor. At the moment, fans are keeping their fingers crossed for her to reconcile things with the hunky pilot but there are still a lot of question marks surrounding their relationship.
“Anything can happen. It’s not out of the realm of possibilities,” Chris, 48, confessed to Life & Style and other outlets about the idea of the 25-year-old returning to our Monday nights during ABC Winter Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on January 8.
After being asked if Hannah should be the next lead, the host felt torn. On one hand, the former beauty queen is able to be her true self, despite being surrounded by cameras. On the other hand, fans may be ready for someone fresh. “That’s a tough question. I don’t know. I’m not against it. Obviously, she’s great TV, but I could also see people that would rail against it. So, I don’t know. I think it’d be … compelling. And, does she deserve it? I don’t know if anyone deserves it,” he added.
Chris isn’t the only Bachelor Nation star who is convinced that Hannah Beast has a chance at a second season. Nick Viall recently hypothesized the idea on his podcast, “The Viall Files,” featuring actress January Jones. “I still think Hannah could be the Bachelorette again. It wouldn’t surprise me,” the 39-year-old confessed in the January 7 episode.
The former leading lady appeared twice on Peter’s premiere episode on January 6. She first stepped out of the limo to return a set of airline wings that he gifted her when they first met and then she hosted the second group date. However, chaos ensued when she broke down in tears and confessed to Peter that she “f–ked up” sending him home and regrets ending things “all the time.”
The emotional conversation proved that there were lingering feelings between the exes, but Nick, 39, wasn’t quite buying it. “Hannah’s had a tough run in terms of the dating stuff. It didn’t work out with Jed. I think she shot her shot with Tyler, he kind of was like, ‘Meh.’ And that’s how, it kind of comes across, like, just keep going down the list,” he said.
Time will tell what happens, but we haven’t seen the last of Hannah.
