THE Bachelorette star Hannah Brown has opened up on her issues with self-worth, revealing she “only ate candy” on the ABC show.
Hannah, who first appeared on the franchise in 2019, revealed in a brave video that she had always struggled with her body image, even as a little girl.
Hannah has opened up on her body image concerns
“Everybody would always comment on my little chubby face,” she shared, adding that she would always compare herself to the other dancers she grew up alongside.
Admitting she longed for a “thigh gap,” the former pageant queen eventually stopped eating, and revealed that by the time she entered Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor she “only ate candy.”
“I would never eat the food,” she revealed.
But despite being at what she thought was her ideal body weight, she soon realized she had “no energy” for her workouts, and acne had broken out across her face.

“What I was doing was not sustainable, I wasn’t eating super healthy nutrutious food,” she continued.
“It’s always been a constant struggle of worthiness, I wasn’t happier at that time – I just didn’t have any self-worth through all that.”
Hannah revealed she has spent much of her life yo-yo dieting between pageants, and that at times she would limit her intake entirely to chicken and boiled eggs.
“Body image is something that I’ve struggled with since I was a little girl, and will continue to work on for many years to come,” she captioned the YouTube video.

“I hope by letting you guys in and sharing my experiences will help anyone out there who is struggling with the same thing.
“Just remember that YOU are beautiful, YOU are loved, and YOU are not alone.”
Hannah found fame on The Bachelorette in 2019, after appearing on The Bachelor a month before.
However, Hannah’s stint as The Bachelorette was ill-fated.

Although she eventually chose Jed Wyatt as her fiancé, it was later revealed that he had been in a relationship throughout filming for the show.
During the live season finale in July 2019, Hannah then asked out her runner-up, Tyler Cameron, after her failed relationship with Jed.
In January, the 26-year-old went public with her new boyfriend, model Adam Woolard.
Days after Hannah teased on Instagram that she had met “a good guy” who “seems really nice”, the pair were pictured together holding hands.
