Too cute! Former Bachelorette star Hannah Brown and her Dancing With the Stars partner, Alan Bersten, truly make an adorable duo. They are a blast to watch on the dance floor each week and their chemistry jumps off the screen. They’ve had so many cute moments that have made fans totally swoon.
While they are amazing to watch, it seems like their connection starts and ends on the dance floor. People have been shipping the duo since their partnership was announced but the Alabama beauty revealed that their relationship is platonic. “We are dance partners and we have the best time together and we have a friendship that is great,” the 25-year-old reality starlet told Life & Style and other reporters about the dance pro, also 25, during the live taping on September 30.
Showmance rumors don’t come as much of a surprise. Just ask last season’s winner, Bobby Bones. The radio DJ dished exclusively to Life & Style that the same thing happened with him and his partner, Sharna Burgess. “They’re not dating. I mean they tried to rumor me with Sharna because we were both single,” the 39-year-old author said while promoting his partnership with Dog Chow for the “Service Dog Salute” campaign. “Look, I know Alan. I don’t feel like they’re dating and if you get two single people, you’re just going to assume that they’re together. I don’t think they’re dating, but it’s a very intimate thing. You’re so close with that person the whole time so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.”
That’s not to say that people dating as a result of the show doesn’t happen. “Alan dated his partner last year,” Bobby noted about the pro’s past fling with model Alexis Ren. “I don’t know if that’d be a good look for him to just date his partners … Maybe it’d be the best look for him. I don’t know!”
Although love may not be in their future, a mirror ball trophy certainly could be. “I think she’s probably the favorite to win — her or [James] Van Der Beek or Lauren [Alaina] — because she has such a following from The Bachelorette and she actually has dance experience so she’s pretty good already,” Bobby added.
Good luck, Hannah and Alan! Keep scrolling to see their cutest moments from the season.
