We Now Have Definitive Proof that Hannah Brown Won’t Be the Bachelorette Again

As Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor comes to a close, we’re all wondering: Who will the next Bachelorette be?

Of course, Madison, Sydney, Kelley, Kelsey, Alayah, Mykenna, Hannah Brown and Kendall Long have all been top of mind. But as of today, it looks like we can take one potential Bachelorette off the list.

Yesterday, ABC announced that Brown is dusting off her dancing shoes and taking her show on the road with the Dancing with the Stars 2020 Live Tour.

The tour takes place throughout late March, which as reality TV expert/theorist Reality Steve points out, is the same time The Bachelorette films. He tweeted, “You can now cross Hannah B. off the list for Bachelorette. This would be during filming and clearly she can’t do both.”

This editor might argue that all of the tour locations are easily accessible from Los Angeles, where the series is filmed, but that’s neither here nor there. Regardless, the DWTS tour would make a pretty fun group date.

If you’re wondering, Wasn’t Brown already the Bachelorette? Yes, she was the Bachelorette in season 15. But apparently fans think she was swindled and didn’t get a fair chance at love. (*Actively trying to avoid rolling our eyes*) As a reminder, Brown was briefly engaged to contestant Jed Wyatt, but it didn’t work out. She factored into the early episodes of Weber’s season of The Bachelor pretty heavily, which may have been a litmus test for ABC to see if the thirst for another season of Brown finding love was real.

Hey, Brad Womack had two seasons, so who’s to say Brown can’t? In this instance, it looks like her schedule will have the last word.
