Former Bachelorette Hannah Brown to Compete on New Series The Celebrity Dating Game
Iggy Azalea and Taye Diggs were also named in the first group of celebrity contestants to appear on the show, which premieres in June
On Wednesday, ABC announced the first celebrity contestants for its upcoming game show The Celebrity Dating Game, which premieres in June.
According to ABC's description of the show, each episode will follow two celebrities as they pick one suitor from a hidden panel. The celebrity version's twist is that the celebrities' identities will also be hidden from the suitors, who will receive clues about who the stars are through parody songs from host Michael Bolton. Bolton will host the show along with Zooey Deschanel.
Brown previously competed on Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor before she was named the Bachelorette. She ended her season by offering the final rose to Jed Wyatt, but the pair split after PEOPLE reported that Wyatt had had a girlfriend when he joined the Bachelorette cast.
The Celebrity Dating Game was filmed in February 2021.
In a Q&A session on her YouTube channel last month, Brown gushed over Woolard, revealing that they met on a dating app after she "liked his photo first" — though she added that it was Woolard who made "an actual move that made any ruckus."
The Dancing with the Stars winner added that she and her new beau had a "nice spark" when they met.
The Celebrity Dating Game premieres June 14 on ABC.
