Hannah Ann Sluss is an American model and TV personality. She became famous as the winner of The Bachelor season 24, but the ensuing drama is what made propelled her into the stratosphere.
She had seemingly won the grand prize of The Bachelor and was engaged to the season's feature, Peter Weber, but in a matter of months, it all came crashing down when Peter called off their engagement in favor of the runner-up of the show, Madison Prewett.
Hannah was done wrong, and fans sympathized with her. The controversy also made her one of the most talked-about people on the planet.
Here are seven facts about Hannah Ann Sluss:
The twenty-fourth season of The Bachelor featured Peter Weber. A pilot in real life, Weber was the grand prize, so to speak, of The Bachelor season 24; whoever could court the affections of Weber would win the reality competition.
Hannah Ann Sluss turned out to be beneficiary of Weber's affections and the season ended with Sluss getting engaged to Weber in the show's November 17, 2019 finale.
Despite having a seemingly fairy-tale-like romance on The Bachelor, real life is seldom as perfect. Weber seemed undecided about his engagement from the start, having divided his affections between Hannah and another contestant, Madison Prewett.
Despite that, he proposed to Sluss and she accepted. Fast forward to March 2020, Peter's indecisiveness comes to a head when he reveals to Sluss that "I can’t give you my whole heart”. They called off their engagement in the After the Final Rose special due to his residual feelings for runner-up Madison Prewett.
Hannah doesn't look too torn up about her recent run of bad luck in the romance department, and if she did, she doesn't intend to harp on it for too long.
If her recent appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show was any indication, Hannah looks like she is ready to leave the sordid mess behind her and start anew, possibly with someone not quite as undecided.
Among the things discussed in the rapid-fire interview was the possibility of a Bachelor in Paradise appearance, of which Hannah didn't immediately discount the possibility.
Her exact words:
"There might be a bikini waiting for me."
Another question that yielded a scalding response from the model was the question on which person she would want to date from The Bachelor world, to which she responded:
"I think this is the easiest question...Tyler Cameron. I mean...yeah."
If drama is good for publicity, then there is no wonder why Hannah's Instagram has a whopping 1.2 million followers. She was embroiled in one of the most - if not the most - controversial finales in all twenty-four seasons of The Bachelor.
Oh, and the fact that she is also a stunning model doesn't hurt her standing with the fans either!
The harsh truth is that beauty opens doors otherwise closed. The saying goes doubly true for someone in the showbiz. Nowadays, breast augmentation surgery is no longer the taboo subject that it once was. Still, openly admitting to having breast implants is still a revelation that heralds untold controversy.
Hannah doesn't let the snide comments bother her - or if it does, she doesn't show it - judging by her candidness about having breast augmentation surgery. She was outspoken about her implants, saying that the procedure opened doors for her. Gathering by how popular she would go on to become, it is hard to argue with her.
In a tell-all interview on Instagram, she revealed to have the surgery done while still in her teens. In the candid interviews, she said of her surgery,
“I was really anxious about it at first. I had never had any work done before, and I was really nervous because this is plastic surgery, and I wanted it to look as natural as possible. I also didn’t want everyone to really recognize that I had had surgery. I wanted it to just be a gradual transition into looking more like a woman.”
Before she became the eye of the storm in The Bachelor controversy, Hannah was an aspiring model who was featured in the print ads for such brands as Sonic Drive-In and Downy.
Her beauty was no mystery to anyone and she excelled in beauty pageants. She won the Miss North Knoxville pageant and was the first runner-up in the 2015 Miss Tennessee Teen USA pageant.
Hannah Ann Sluss was born on April 25, 1996, in Knoxville, Tennessee. She turns 24 next month. For someone of such a young age, she has already had her fair share of controversy and her fair share of stardom.
