Waitlisted on Raya? So Is Hannah Brown
Four months and no dice.
She's tried The Bachelor, she was the actual Bachelorette, and she even managed to win the mirrorball trophy on Dancing With the Stars. Even with all of that on her résumé, Hannah Brown says that she can't get onto Raya, an exclusive dating app that's popular with celebrities, artists, and musicians.
Brown explained it all on her Instagram Story. In the clip, she's with a friend and explains that she's been waiting for four months to get access to the Raya app.
"You guys, I don't know if you know this, but, I was the Bachelorette, and I can't get on Raya," she said. "I've been on the waiting list for months now."
Brown's companion, who does have a Raya account, says that Brown can use her account, but she doesn't bite. Instead, she mentions a different online dating platform — and manages to reference one of her most iconic Bachelor moments.
"I'm done. Christian Mingle, here I come," she added.
Bachelor Nation superfans will remember that during a conversation with Luke Parker, Brown said "I have had sex! Yeah, and Jesus still loves me!" To drive the joke home, she captioned her video "Jesus still loves me (even if @Raya doesn't)."
"I might not be allowed on Christian Mingle at this point, but if not, they don't know the gospel ... Jesus still loves me," she finished.
After her engagement to Jed Wyatt didn't quite work out, Brown told Entertainment Tonight that she's definitely open to finding love again, which would explain why she's hitting up the apps.
"I went on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to ... I want a person in my life. I definitely want that," Brown said of finding true love. "I know that I don't need that. There is that like, weird ... a desire in my heart to find somebody. Do I have to do that as being The Bachelorette? No. But it is I think something that can work and has worked for other people."
And like all of us, it looks like Brown's seeing that the apps are sometimes more trouble that they're worth.
