The Bachelorette alum Hannah Brown will be one of the contestants appearing on ABC's celebrity-themed revival of The Dating Game this summer.
ABC will premiere The Celebrity Dating Game on June 14 on ABC and Hannah, who starred onThe Bachelorette's fifteenth season and won Dancing with the Stars' 28th edition, will be shown looking for love on the show, singer Michael BoltontoldEntertainment Tonight this week.
"I'm going to be singing throughout the show to give people hints," Michael, 68, revealed to ET on Tuesday.
"Hannah Brown is one of the guests. I wound up, at one point, singing, 'I found someone. She's from Tuscaloosa. She was on The Bachelorette.'"
Iggy Azalea and Taye Diggs will also be among the other celebrities appearing on The Celebrity Dating Game, Bolton said.
The celebrities' identities will apparently remain a secret as Michael sings to their suitors and drops hint about the person they could go on a date with.
After the suitors try to guess the celebrity based on Michael's clues, Hannah will be able to choose one lucky bachelor from a panel of three choices based on their answers to a series of questions.
In a clip of Hannah's appearance, Michael also sang, "I remember the windmill, talking about that fire in her eyes," referring to Hannah's overnight Fantasy Suite date with Peter Weber on her The Bachelorette season in which they had sex four times.
Michael continued singing, "She's been moving on since [Jed Wyatt] did her wrong."
"Happy Valentine's Day @admandew," Hannah captioned a photo of them kissing during a romantic horseback ride.
Hannah and Adam were first dining out in Nashville, TN, in January, and then the pair were photographed holding hands and smiling big as they shopped along Abbott Kinney Boulevard at Venice Beach in Los Angeles, CA.
During his ET interview, Michael was asked whether Hannah met Adam on The Celebrity Dating Game.
"That is a very good question, because there was definitely chemistry going on between people during the show," Michael teased, without giving away the answer.
But Hannah revealed during a March 3 Q&A video posted on her YouTube channel that she made the first move on Adam by liking one of his photos first.
"I'm the one who first threw the line out there," Hannah shared, adding that Adam then made the first official move and asked her out on a date.
Hannah gushed in the video Adam is "the nicest person ever" and he's just "awesome" and "so hot."
Adam is a model signed to multiple modeling agencies including Wilhelmina Models and Campbell Models. He is also currently employed as a private client sales director for clothing company Greg Lauren LLC in Los Angeles.
Adam graduated from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville with a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration and Finance. He later received his M.B.A. from Lipscomb University in 2012.
Hannah's dating life has clearly turned around since she felt compelled to work with a matchmaker in November 2020 to help her find true love after a series of "frustrating" dates.
In a YouTube video Hannah posted to her channel at the time, she sat down with her friend and life coach Nora Dekeyser, who is also a professional matchmaker, for a candid chat about what she's looking for in a relationship -- including a passionate, confident, open and honest man.
Hannah selected Jed Wyatt as the winner of her heart over runner-up Tyler Cameron on The Bachelorette in 2019 at the Final Rose Ceremony, but the former Alabama beauty pageant queen broke up with Jed five weeks after they got engaged because he had lied about having a girlfriend back home in Nashville during filming.
On The Bachelorette's live reunion special in late July 2019, Hannah asked Tyler out on a date, which resulted in the pair spending one night together in Los Angeles.
