She previously was in the top seven in season 23 of The Bachelor.

The 26-year-old from Alabama is also known as a former beauty pageant holder, who won the title of Miss USA 2018.

In her season finale, she chose Jed Wyatt and accepted his proposal, before finding out that he had a girlfriend until the day filming began.

How do Hannah and Matt know each other?

Matt and Tyler are best friends and roommates who live together in NYC.

Hannah then met Matt through Tyler, who was a former contestant on her season of The Bachelorette.
