We don’t blame him! Dancing With the Stars pro Alan Bersten exclusively dished to Life & Style that he’s officially “invested” in Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor thanks to Hannah Brown. Teasers for season 24 not only reveal that the former Bachelorette star will step out of the limo on night one, but clips show an intimate conversation with the hunky pilot where he seemingly asks her to rejoin the cast. It turns out, Alan is all in on the drama — although he might already have the inside scoop. *Winks obnoxiously.*

Alan, 25, explained that he’s gotten so close to the Alabama beauty, also 25, during their time in the rehearsal studio so he’ll need to watch her potential new journey to find love. “I feel like now I have to!” he said. Fans have been shipping Hannah and Alan since the beginning of DWTS. A source exclusively told Life & Style that “some of their friends have urged them to take their friendship and obvious chemistry to the next level,” but it seems as though he’s happy for her next chapter in life.

The Minnesota native confessed that he didn’t know Hannah before they became partners — mostly because he missed her season. “I’ve seen parts,” he noted. “I have never really watched a lot of television, but now I feel like I have to because I’m so invested in it … I’ve heard it’s great.” Same here, Alan.

Once the dancer catches up on what’s been going on between the former beauty queen and Peter, 28, they’ll have a lot to talk about when they embark on the together. Hannah will be taking the stage during the performance at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on January 28. That will be almost a month into the new season of The Bachelor, which premieres on January 6. Hopefully, a lot of questions will be answered by then.

The season 28 winners will be joined by other celebs from the show, including  and . Alan gushed that he can’t wait to share the experience with his partner. “It’s going to be awesome … It’s one of the most iconic shows we do,” he teased about their upcoming performance at the historic venue.

“We’ve been lucky enough to be there before but to be there with Hannah and share this monumentous … Monumental? Just milestone in my life. Like, it’s so big and it’s so … it’s such an amazing experience to share,” Alan added. “I’m so glad Hannah’s going to be there for it.”
