I don’t want to go ahead and say this season of The Bachelor was one big waste of time… but OK, this season of The Bachelor was one big waste of time. We spent weeks watching as Peter Weber narrowed down his group of 20-something hopefuls vying for his heart only to have him end up brokenhearted and alone. Again. But despite no traditional winner coming out of Season 24, there is one leading lady who’s certainly come out on top at the end of all of this chaos — and that’s Hannah Ann Sluss.
The 23-year-old ended up nabbing the final rose and a Neil Lane engagement ring during the two-night finale but was later blindsided when the pilot called off the relationship in an effort to pursue contestant, Madison Prewett. But while Madison and Peter’s relationship lasted a whopping two days post-Bachelor, Hannah Ann seems to be doing just fine. In fact, the heartache appears to have given the model a newfound outlook on life and love — and it looks great on her.

Taking to her Instagram page shortly after her live reunion with Peter aired earlier this week, she wrote, “I made a commitment to myself to be consistent, genuine, and truthful through this journey and I remained that way to the very end. Allowing yourself to love someone is a vulnerable place to be, but I am thankful that I gave myself a chance in finding love regardless of the outcome. I encourage anyone looking for love to always stay true to you. Don’t accept anything less than 100% of someone’s heart — YOU DESERVE IT!”
And now, things are only looking up for the blue-eyed beauty, who recently hinted that Bachelor in Paradise may be in her future. “There might be a bikini waiting for me. I don’t know. Maybe,” she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week, adding that she’s “single and ready to mingle.” As for who she wants to mingle with? That’s none other than Bachelorette fan favorite Tyler Cameron. When asked who she’d like to date from Bachelor Nation, Hannah Ann immediately named the hunky model. Take that, Peter.
But it’s not like Hannah Ann needs to go on a television show to find a man who’s willing to treat her like a queen. Host Chris Harrison assured fans that she’s already getting plenty of attention from eligible men. “She’s already in Paradise. She had 1.3 billion people slide into her DMs last night, and she’s already in Paradise,'” he said.
And while it would be totally understandable for the model to still be grieving her breakup from the 28-year-old, it’s nice to see her back on her feet, totally owning her new life post-split. Now that is better than a final rose any day.
Hannah Ann and Peter didn’t work, but these Bachelor and Bachelorette couples did!
