Bachelor Nation has reportedly found its newest “Bachelorette” lead. Ahead of Colton Underwood’s finale, rumors suggest the next ABC star is none other than Season 23 “Bachelor” alum Hannah Brown, better known to viewers as Hannah B. Before ABC makes the big “The Bachelorette” announcement during Tuesday’s post-finale reunion, learn everything we know about her season so far.
Filming Start Date
Like most “The Bachelorette” seasons, filming begins soon after each “The Bachelor” season ends. Hannah B.’s season will start filming on Thursday, March 14, according to Reality Steve. Production is expected to end the first week of May 2019.
ABC has not yet announced a premiere date for Season 15 of “The Bachelorette” though most installments air in mid to late May. For comparison, Becca Kufrin’s season kicked off on May 28 and Rachel Lindsay’s premiered on May 22.
For several weeks, viewers considered Caelynn Miller-Keyes, ironically Hannah B.’s past beauty pageant competitor, a front-runner for the next “Bachelorette” spot. However, following some on-screen feuds and alleged secret “Bachelorette” plans, she appears to have ruined her chance.
The other Hannah on Colton’s season, Hannah Godwin, was also speculated to be in the running. However, according to Reality Steve, Hannah G. simply might not have been the best pick.
The third date of episode 2 (March 18th) and the first date of episode 3 (March 20th) of the “Bachelorette” will be dates open to the public. They’re already sending out emails to their mailing list.

“The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” typically request fan attendance at some dates and this season looks to be no different. Spoilers indicate producers are looking for participants for one date in episode 2, filming March 18, and one date in episode 3, filming March 20.
It’s unclear if ABC is still searching for contestants to star on Hannah B.’s season but prospective cast members can fill out applications here.
