Potential spoilers for The Bachelor ahead. Already, Peter Weber's The Bachelor season has several women that are...characters. One of these contestants is Hannah Sluss, the former pageant star who already knows a famous former contestant, and has had a fairly successful modeling career—and a history of hunting, FYI. Early reports are indicating that she has made an impression on the pilot Bachelor and that her presence on the show has already ruffled a few feathers. That could mean either a really strong show run, or something more dramatic, but either way she's going to be one to watch. These spoilers come courtesy of Reality Steve and spoiler-y Bachelor Instagram accounts, and this is what we know about her so far.
She's from Knoxville, Tennessee.
Sluss is 23 and religious (judging by the Bible reference in her Instagram profile, now set to private). She's apparently good friends with Hannah Godwin (maybe she got tips on how to navigate the show?), so she's already sort of aware of how the whole "dating one guy who is dating 29 other women" thing works.
She's also one of the castmembers who had at one point a picture of her with friends after hunting animals, which I won't link to and find upsetting.
She's a model and actress.
Sluss is represented by Model Club and The Campbell Agency, and is either 5'6" or 7" and has either blue or green eyes, depending on who you ask. Apparently she's been featured online and in print, including for Sonic and Downy ads (so, in other words, she was a successful model before coming on the show). She even featured in Chris Lane's "I Don't Know About You" video:
Definitely a Southern girl.
She's a former pageant contestant.
Sluss competed in the Miss Tennessee competition more than once. In fact, video has surfaced of a very cringey moment that kiiiiiind of went off the rails (she talked about hazing and violence on college campuses as opposed to...answering the question that was presented to her):
She's the first impression rose recipient.
Now we know—Peter is an early fan of Sluss, because he picks her for his first impression rose. Unlike The Bachelorette, though, first impression winners don't usually go on to win. Or, at least, that's what history has taught us.
There was also a group date that was a Revolve fashion show—and Sluss apparently won the whole thing (as well as a whole bunch of clothes). But the drama's already starting between some of the contestants, and it appears that Sluss already has a potential nemesis:
This is Kelsey Weier, who's apparently a former pageant winner (Miss Iowa 2017):
And I wonder if the dislike comes down to the fact that Sluss came out for one of the fashion show looks in a wedding dress. It's a little early to tell, but Sluss sounds like she might be...kind of a lot. But of course, we don't have footage, so it's not totally clear how it played out and who seems more rational in all this. TBD.
Here's what we know about all of Peter's women so far.
