Because Hannah got wrapped up in a little drama with Caelynn Miller-Keyes and found herself too nervous and closed off at times to even carry a mature and fluid conversation with Colton, Bachelor Nation has been divided on whether she's truly prepared to hand out roses and be in charge.
But during a Monday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Hannah insisted she's absolutely hoping to find her future husband on The Bachelorette because she's "so ready" to get married.
"But ultimately, I want at the end of this to know that they know me and know every part of me and not just some version of myself that's packaged together, like, 'Do you like this?' And I think I've done that in the past -- like, the good and the bad, and I want that in return."
"My journey on The Bachelor was interesting. I definitely grew, but I had ups and downs, so there were moments where I did not think this would happen," Hannah said of the opportunity to be the next Bachelorette.
"But I think the reason I'm here is I was real and I was myself and I showed every part of myself. So, I'm excited!"
Hannah also said she wishes Colton the best going forward even though he broke her heart.
"I knew [Colton and Cassie Randolph] had a connection but I really tried to stay in my own lane. But it didn't always work out," Hannah told Ellen with a laugh.
