Coming in hot! Peter Weber‘s first impression rose on The Bachelor went to a contestant who fans can already tell is going to be a major frontrunner this season. Caution: Spoilers for season 24 follow. Do not keep reading if you don’t want to know what happens! Tennessee native Hannah Ann Sluss scored the coveted stem from the hunky pilot, according to Reality Steve, and there seems to be an immediate spark between the two.
We can’t blame Peter for the gorgeous contestant catching his eye right off the bat. She steps out of the limo in a jaw-dropping blue jewel-toned gown with a plunging neckline. Photos from ABC show that she even brought a painting to give to the leading man. Too cute!
Surprisingly, Hannah Ann may have a leg up on the competition because she is good friends with Bachelor in Paradise star Hannah Godwin, who first appeared on Colton Underwood‘s season. The ladies have a lot in common because Hannah Ann is also a model and influencer. According to her Facebook, the brunette beauty is signed with Wilhelmina Models and seems to get a lot of work. Many of her personal photos include her on shoots all over the country, and you can even catch her on the front of a Downy laundry detergent bottle.
In what seems to be a pattern over the past few seasons, Hannah Ann is a former beauty queen and has competed at the Miss Tennessee pageant several times, according to the gossip outlet. If you’re still not sure where you’ve seen her before, she’s featured as a girl named Georgia in Bachelor Nation‘s favorite country singer Chris Lane‘s music video for “I Don’t Know About You.”
Will Hannah Ann be Peter’s forever love? It’s a possibility! The pilot previously noted that he’s simply looking for someone who he can be himself around. “Obviously, it sounds cliche, but [I’m looking for] that. You are just so madly in love with her and you can’t believe that you were lucky enough to find her and spend the rest of your life with her,” he said on just hours after the news broke that he was the Bachelor.
Good luck, Hannah Ann!
