Here are all the hints that Jake Funk and Hannah Ann Sluss are the newest Bachelor Nation couple.
Hannah Ann’s most recent Instagram post showed off both her brunch look and a subtle clue as to her new relationship. The post featured a profile shot of her hair clip, which sported “RAMS” in all caps.
The post was captioned “Brunch or Lunch: What’s your favorite?”

Hannah Ann and her time on The Bachelor
Fans have been rooting for Hannah Ann to find love since the dramatic and very public end of her relationship with Peter Weber after the two appeared on his season of The Bachelor.
Peter originally proposed to Hannah Ann after his other finalist, Madison Prewett, sent herself home at the end of the season. Despite their engagement, Peter first reached out to Hannah Brown and then broke their engagement completely.
By the time the After the Final Rose episode aired, Peter and Madison had decided to give their relationship another go.
Hannah Ann ended the confrontation by telling Peter, “If you want to be with a woman, you need to become a real man.”
Hannah Ann has since been very vocal about her relationship with Peter and on his actions since. Only time will tell if Hannah Ann decides to open up just as much about her current relationship.
The Bachelor returns Monday, January 24th at 8/7c on ABC.
