On Saturday, the reality star, 25, shared a throwback video message on Instagram that she taped following the first few episodes of The Bachelor in January 2019, in which she said that appearing on Colton Underwood‘s season of the ABC reality series “was one of the best experiences I ever had.”
“I had to deal with my weaknesses head first,” she said in the video. “Were there twists and turns? Yes, but my weaknesses were all caught on camera.”
“The whole time, I just sat in prayer everyday making sure I understood how big of a deal this could be,” she said. “Yes it’s a reality TV show, yes there are parts of the show that are definitely for entertainment. But ultimately, this was my real life. These were my struggles and although they are used as an entertainment factor, it’s what I was going through.”
“If I decide to ever show this to you guys, just thank you for listening,” Brown said at the end of the video.

Today feels really symbolic for me. As I get ready to move into a new home, I realize that I am starting a new chapter and closing another. (Which is a big deal because I’m usually rushing to the next chapter before I finish the one before!) I took a trip down memory lane this morning, looking at footage and personal journals from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and couldn’t help but feel a little proud of how much I’ve evolved since then. I recorded this video after one of the first few episodes aired of The Bachelor (probably in between the time I couldn’t make a toast and roared [rawr!] on camera) in January 2019! Oh sweet baby Han didn’t know then it was just the start of all the crazy mess she’d get into! I’ve had lots of highs and a lot of lows, and although I would prefer some things to have gone differently, I wouldn’t change a single thing. I’m thankful for every single one of my experiences and the subsequent moments of growth, and of course, I’m thankful for all of you! Tough times don’t feel so rough when you have some pretty great friends on the internet rooting for ya along the way! Cheers, to new beginnings y’all! 💛
