She has her eyes on that mirror ball trophy! Former Bachelorette star Hannah Brown assured everyone that she is not looking for romance on season 28 of Dancing With the Stars, despite fans keeping their fingers crossed. It’s not uncommon for sparks to fly between the contestants and their partners. It happened with Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev, Amber Rose and Val Chmerkovskiy and Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff — just to name a few. However, finding love on national television is the last thing on the Alabama beauty’s mind right now.
“I have not thought about that at all,” the 24-year-old exclusively told Life & Style about the possibility of hitting it off romantically with her partner. “I’m truly just focused on continuing to love myself and see the places where I still need to work on that — and I think this is the way where I can do that.” As soon as the spunky reality babe was announced on season 28, people couldn’t help but wonder if she’d find love this unexpected way. “That would be nice if Hannah Brown fell in love with her dance partner on this season of #DWTS but are any of the guys still single?” someone on Twitter wondered.
During the DWTS cast reveal at Planet Hollywood on August 21, Hannah admitted that she didn’t know who her partner would be yet. Fans started throwing in their own predictions and Alan Bersten seems to be a popular choice. “I would love to see Hannah Brown and Alan as partners,” one person wrote on Twitter. Another user echoed, “I wanna know who Hannah’s pro partner is. Please tell me its Alan, please pretty please.”
As for the reality starlet, she’s gunning for first place but feels open to whoever she gets paired with. “Honestly, I just met all of them,” Hannah confessed when asked who her top choice is. “I think they’re all really great and so I don’t know. No, I don’t think I really have like somebody that I like have my eye on like, ‘Oh, I hope that’s them.’ But, we’ll see.”
After a disastrous engagement to Jed Wyatt, viewers are rooting for the Southern beauty’s new adventure. “[Hannah] SO excited to watch you in #DWTS! I hope you get a great partner and go all the way to the finals! Time for a #newchapter! Best of luck — your #BachelorNation fans will be cheering you on!” a user gushed on Twitter.
Best of luck, girl!
