Hannah Brown Might Return to the ‘Bachelor’ Franchise After All, According to ABC Exec

Just because Hannah Brown turned down ABC’s offer to be the next Bachelorette (again) doesn’t mean she’s done with the franchise yet. In fact, the former beauty queen, 25, may star in Bachelor: Summer Games (aka the upcoming spin-off we didn’t know we needed).

ABC executive Rob Mills recently sat down for a radio interview with SiriusXM’s The Bachelor Recap. While discussing the new show, he revealed that Brown has already expressed interest in joining the cast of Bachelor: Summer Games.

“Hannah B., too, has also said, ‘I find this interesting,’” Mills said.

So, why Brown? Mills confirmed that the former Bachelorette is on a winning streak. “Because she likes to win,” he added. “She likes to win.”

This doesn’t come as a huge surprise, since Brown is fresh off winning season 28 of Dancing with the Stars. Still, we didn’t think she’d ever return to the franchise after she reportedly turned down ABC’s second Bachelorette offer because they couldn’t agree on a paycheck.

As for Bachelor: Summer Games, it’ll be similar to ABC’s Winter Games show—but a summer version (duh). It will feature former contestants (both local and international) as they battle it out in a series of Olympic-style competitions…while trying to find love.

Bachelor: Winter Games is actually where next Bachelorette Clare Crawley met her former fiancé, Benoit Beauséjour-Savard. Although it didn’t work out for the couple, their love story is proof that anything is possible in the wild world of reality television.

Fingers crossed Brown has no issues with the contract for Bachelor: Summer Games.
