New ‘Bachelorette’ Star Hannah Brown Reveals What She Wants in a Future Husband

Grab your notepads, Bachelor Nation. Hannah Brown is opening up about what she’s looking for in her 33 (!) Bachelorette suitors.

The 24-year-old star appeared on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she discussed her upcoming season of The Bachelorette. Although her time on The Bachelor wasn’t totally drama-free (cough, Caelynn, cough), Brown revealed that she’s looking for someone who isn’t afraid to lay everything on the table.

“My journey on The Bachelor was interesting. I definitely grew but had ups and downs,” she said. “There are moments that I did not think this would happen, but I think the reason I am here is because I am real. I showed every part of myself.”

She went on to explain why she’s not holding back this time around, adding, “Ultimately, at the end of this, I want them to know me and every part of me—not just some version of myself that I, like, packaged together and was like, ‘Do you like this?’ I think I’ve done that in the past. But the good and the bad. And I want that in return.”

However, when it comes to qualities, Brown admitted that it all comes down to the basics: “[I want] just a good human: good heart, kind and strong.”

If you need us, we’ll be finalizing our bracket. Season 15 of The Bachelorette premieres on Monday, May 13, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
