OMG — ABC Just Revealed All 33 Contestants Competing For ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown!
ABC is switching things up for the next season of The Bachelorette!
On Wednesday, the network decided to turn away from their usual formula, and revealed all 33 contestants who will be vying for newly minted Bachelorette Hannah Brown‘s heart over the next few months.
For Bachelor Nation, this means Christmas came early, y’all!
The announcement came straight from the show’s Facebook page, just one day after Colton Underwood‘s season of The Bachelor ended. Lucky for us, the post is complete with high-res cast photos for each male suitor.
The post‘s caption reads:
“For the first time ever, we are giving you an early look at the men who may be on #TheBachelorette. Leave a 🌹 for who would get your first impression rose.”

Well hello there, gentlemen!
We have to say, this looks like a very interesting crop of guys and we are glad that the show surprised us with this first look, which usually comes well ahead of time from spoiler accounts and bloggers like Reality Steve.
As we wrote, the former Miss Alabama was announced as the female lead on Tuesday night’s live After The Final Rose. At the time, she gushed with excitement for her journey, telling host Chris Harrison:
“I feel all the emotions, but honestly, I’m just really grateful for this opportunity. [Falling in love and getting engaged] didn’t happen for me my first time around, but I do believe it can happen, and I’m so honored people saw my heart.”
And ICYMI — the pageant queen actually started her season that night, too!
Producers and stage crew turned the live taping into a make-shift Bachelor mansion set up, and gave five guys from upcoming Season 15 a chance to make a really good early first impression. During the telecast, Hannah met Luke P., Dustin, Cam, Connor and Luke S.
We saw a version of this last season, when previous lead Becca Kufrin met a few of her suitors at AFR, so that part wasn’t too surprising.
But keeping up with the theme of breaking unwritten Bachelor/ette rules, Miz Brown did something no other lead has done before and gave out her first rose of the season! Congrats to Cam for scoring that one!
WATCH how it all went down (below):
We can’t wait to see what other surprises are in store for us Perezcious readers, when The Bachelorette returns to ABC on Monday, May 13.
