ABC's fifteenth season of The Bachelorette kicks off tonight, but we're still asking ourselves one question—who really is Hannah Brown? There are a few things we know for sure—the Southern belle was born and raised in Alabama (hence her Instagram handle @alabamahannah and her affinity for fitting in a "Roll tide!" every other sentence), she might have a thing for a Jonathan Drew lookalike (seriously, you have to see him), and Hannah B. was an interior designer before landing the gig of a lifetime. Surprised?
After graduating from the University of Alabama—and before she took part in the most awkward one-on-one date of all time with bachelor Colton Underwood—Hannah took a crack at design at Gracefully Done in Northport, Alabama. Then, just a few months later, she won the crown for Miss Alabama USA and was whisked off to the Bachelor mansion in the Malibu mountains.
"It quickly became clear that this job was not just a hobby, and after graduation I decided to continue my work study under the designers at Gracefully Done," Hannah says on her LinkedIn profile. "Soon, I was rewarded [with] my own clients and promoted to interior designer in my own accord. My favorite part of designing and decorating is forming relationships with my clients and being able to meet specific needs for creating their dream space."
According to Gracefully Done's website, Hannah B. joined the firm right after graduating in May of 2017, and that she enjoys "combining different styles to create spaces that are equally beautiful and comfortable." We wonder what she really thinks of the Bachelor Mansion...
Hannah B.'s season of The Bachelorette premieres tonight on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
