The 32-year-old, who is an emergency radiographer and podcast host, famously made it to the top two on Nick "The Honey Badger" Cummins' season of The Bachelor in 2018, when the former rugby union player walked away from the reality show without handing out his final rose.
But while the experience initially led Brittany to steer clear from the franchise, she soon changed her mind.

"It was always a hard no for me, but I ended up signing on at the last minute possible. It was around 8pm on Sunday night [that I signed on] and I flew out on Monday morning," Brittany told Mamamia.
It was Brittany's sister Sherri and her podcast co-host, fellow The Bachelor star Laura Byrne, who ultimately convinced her to revisit the reality TV franchise.
"Laura was telling me, 'I'm proof that good things can come from it and it can work.' And Sherri was like, 'I feel like your personality was really subdued on The Bachelor, and you weren't able to show who you are,'" she explained.
"I just thought, good things come from saying yes to opportunities so I'll give it a whirl."
It was just over two years ago that fans watched as Brittany and fellow finalist Sophie Tieman became a part of the one Bachelor season where the suitor – Nick Cummins – didn't pick a winner. But while Brittany was "heartbroken" following the finale, she now looks back on her time on the show as a fairly positive experience.
