Is Bachelorette Hannah Brown Joining Dancing With The Stars?

Hannah Brown has had quite the year. First, she ended Season 15 of The Bachelorette as a single woman after breaking off her engagement to Jed Wyatt. She then asked out the season's runner-up, Tyler Cameron, only to watch him publicly move on to supermodel Gigi Hadid a couple of days later. Can't Hannah catch a break? 

It finally seems like some good news might be coming Hannah's way. While it hasn't been officially announced yet, many think that the Bachelorette is going to be appearing on Season 28 of Dancing With the Stars. On August 18, ET reported that the speculation that Hannah would be joining the DWTS cast had begun, and on August 19, Us Weekly reported that multiple anonymous sources have confirmed the appearance prior to an official announcement.

Much of the speculation is centered on a black and white photo on Instagram, taken from the neck down, that was posted on the official Dancing with the Stars account on August 17. "We'd LOVE to tell you who this is," reads the caption. "But we're going to make you wait a few more days." Fans have pointed out that a beauty mark on the subject's hand matches up to Hannah's. 

If the picture is of Hannah, a stint on Dancing with the Stars might be the diversion she needs to pull her out of the funk she's been in since The Bachelorette wrapped. "Honest policy: I'm struggling," she revealed on Instagram on August 12. "Life is so different. Since last August, I've been a pageant queen, a bachelor contestant, and the Bachelorette. I've been in love with multiple people, I got engaged, I broke off an engagement, and I shared it all with millions of people. My faith has been questioned by thousands who don't know my heart, and my transparency with my decisions has labeled me promiscuous."

The world might be convinced that Hannah Brown is appearing on Dancing With the Stars, but we'll have to wait until August 21 for an official announcement. The Season 28 competitors will be announced that morning on Good Morning America, with the season set to premiere on September 16.
