Former “Bachelor” star Hannah Ann Sluss is trying to clean up her image.
According to TMZ, the reality star has filed a lawsuit against Proctor & Gamble, CVS Pharmacy, Target and Walmart, claiming that one of her old modeling photos is still be used to sell Downy laundry products, even though her contract with Proctor & Gamble, which makes Downy, has expired.
Hannah states in her lawsuit that she allowed Proctor & Gamble to use her image on a single product from Oct. 1, 2017, to Oct. 1, 2019. She alleged that the company has continued to use the image, especially after she gained prominence from “The Bachelor.”
She argues that her image is now being used on six products, despite the licensing contract ending two years ago.
TMZ says that one thing particularly irksome to Hannah is her image being associated with a tagline that reads, “Life Gets Stinky.” The reality TV star says that campaign is “especially egregious because it associated [her] with the word ‘stinky.'”
In her lawsuit, she’s asking a judge to order Proctor & Gamble to stop using her likeness to sell the product, and she wants the judge to order the department stores to stop selling items with her face on them.
Hannah gained fame in early 2020 while appearing on Peter Weber’s season of “The Bachelor.” The 25-year-old was initially picked as the winner of the 24th season and Peter proposed. She said yes. Hannah and Peter split before the finale actually aired.Internet Explorer Channel Network
