The Bachelorette Hannah Brown Defends Producers Ahead of Finale

The Bachelorette finale is finally here! After weeks of ups and downs, Hannah Brown will finally be deciding who she wants to spend forever (or at least the romantics in us hope so) with this week.

Though the two-night finale is sure to be full of drama, Brown took some time on Monday to thank her producers for guiding her through the process, which can sometimes be a bit tense.

“The ultimate #beastsquad. Feeling all the feels because they are about to kick me off your television, and it’s becoming real that these people have to move on to another rose handler,” she said, alluding to the fact that Bachelor Nation keeps churning out new seasons.

“These brave souls have been through it y’all. They seen the breakdowns, the meltdowns, the breakthroughs, and witnessed ‘beast mode’ that could never be aired on national television,” she wrote.

“I was challenging. Somehow, these people still love me and root for my happiness. Regardless of what any outsiders might think, my producers (and all the people behind this show for that matter) put everything into making sure I shine, I’m fulfilled, and loved during this journey.”

Brown revealed that though her producers want to make interesting television, they always had her best interests at heart. “Do they make entertaining television? Sure — and they’re damn good at it too. But I’m thankful they always tried to put the human Hannah, not the Bachelorette Hannah first.

“I’ve learned so so much and I’m so thankful for this group of humans who challenged me, encouraged me, and gave me the opportunities to grow into the woman I always have been — and to be really proud of THAT girl,” she shared.

But the experience hasn’t left Brown unchanged — something that she also acknowledged. And considering all that happened during this emotional season, that’s not all that surprising.

“Thanks for seeing more in me than a people pleasing, southern belle with a goofy smile plastered on her face. She gone.”

She then added, “I love you all. (I also should say I’m sorry for making y’all cry sometimes with my fury, and for always being late. *however it was kinda fun right?—you’ll miss me.)”

This also comes just one week after contestant Luke Parker claimed producers set him up to look bad during his elimination from the show. Are you excited for the finale? Who do you think she’s going to pick? Sound off in the comments section below!
