Hannah Brown has Bachelor Nation's support.
After fighting back tears over the judges' critique on Monday's episode of Dancing With the Stars, the contestant took to Instagram to share an honest message with her followers.
In the post, the Bachelorette star admitted "this experience has been harder than I could have ever imagined." She also acknowledged that she hasn't been able to fully open up on the dance floor and insisted she was "working on getting there." In addition, she claimed her experience this week was "really defeating." Still, she wanted to be honest about the emotions she felt and acknowledge the "hard days we all have." Near the end of her note, she thanked her fans for all of their support.
After reading the post, several members of Bachelor Nation took to social media to show support, including her ex Tyler Cameron.
"Fall down 7 times, get up 8!" he wrote in the comments section. "You got this HB. Be where your feet are and enjoy the ride. You're doing amazing."
Cameron's comment generated mixed reactions from followers. While most of the fans applauded the runner-up for sharing these encouraging words—and expressed their desire for the season 15 stars to get back together—a few others said Cameron should just leave Brown alone, especially after his brief romance with Gigi Hadid.
