E! 2hrs ago

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. And after Hannah Brown struck out in The Bachelor franchise, she's ready to try her luck on a new dating show.

ABC has cast its former Bachelorette lead as one of the first contestants on its upcoming show, The Celebrity Dating Game. Hannah, along with rapper Iggy Azalea and Broadway star Taye Diggs, will be among the celebrity contestants on the show, the network announced this week.

The Celebrity Dating Game, a new version of The Dating Game, is hosted by New Girl alum Zooey Deschanel and Grammy winner Michael Bolton.

As described by ABC, "The Celebrity Dating Game offers a wry wink at modern dating with a star-studded roster of celebrity singles from television, music, comedy, reality TV and feature film in their pursuit to find love," as it offers "the same iconic feel as the original classic dating show."

Bachelor Nation Reacts to Hannah Brown Scandal

Each episode centers on two celebrities, who each pick one suitor from a hidden panel of three potential lovers, based on their answers to various questions.

However, the suitors don't know the identity of the celebrity and are given clues "via hilarious parody song performances" from Michael.

In 2019, Hannah got her start in the reality TV world by competing for Colton Underwood's heart on The Bachelor. She then starred in season 15 of The Bachelorette and selected Jed Wyatt as her fiancé.

Shockingly, they ended things after he was accused of being with another woman all along (he denies he cheated). She later tried to make it work with her runner-up, Tyler Cameron. Although their relationship didn't take off, they were there for each other in difficult times during the pandemic.

In February, Hannah seemed to make things official with boyfriend Adam Woolard when they appeared in the music video for Jordan Davis' single "Almost Maybes."

"Every day is so great. He's just awesome," Hannah said during a YouTube Q&A in March. "I'm telling y'all, he's the nicest person I've ever met."

It appears their romance didn't work out, because the 26 year old is now searching for love once again on The Celebrity Dating Game.

As for Iggy, she confirmed in October 2020 that she was no longer dating Playboi Carti, the father of her son, Onyx Kelly, who is about 1 year old. The "Fancy" vocalist has also reportedly dated Tyga, Quavo, French Montana and A$AP Rocky in the past.

Taye's dating history is just as star-studded. He was married to Frozen star Idina Menzel from 2003 to 2014, and the pair shares 11-year-old son Walker Nathaniel Diggs.

"Rent is literally the gift that keeps on giving. I met my baby mama there, it was the beginning of my career," he reflected during his appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show in January. "That's where it all started."

Watch Hannah, Iggy and Taye try to find their next match when The Celebrity Dating Game premieres on June 14 on ABC.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
