Squashing rumors! Hannah Brown responded to a fan who asked if she and her Dancing With the Stars partner, Alan Bersten, were “a thing.” The former Bachelorette star made it clear that, for now, they’re not dating but just a dynamic dance duo.
“Um, yeah, we’re a thing — Team Alanbama Hannah,” the 25-year-old cheekily said during an Instagram Q&A with the dance pro on September 29. However, it’s obvious that the two have great chemistry. After two weeks on the reality competition show, they currently sit at the top of the leaderboard and the starlet confessed that she likes to make her coach feel proud.
A separate inquisitive user asked what their favorite part of dancing together is and Hannah had the sweetest response. “OK, so we obviously have to look at each other when we dance, and when I had not been doing a step right and then I finally get it right, I can always tell by his face and I’m like, ‘Yes!’ That’s my favorite thing,” she gushed. Alan added, “I smile when she gets it right and I just love dancing with her, it’s a lot of fun.”
The two are absolutely adorable together so it’s no surprise that fans are shipping them. Last year’s DWTS winner, Bobby Bones, weighed in on Hannah and Alan’s possible romance and compared it to what he experienced with his partner, Sharna Burgess. “They’re not dating. I mean they tried to rumor me with Sharna because we were both single. 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,” the 39-year-old author exclusively told Life & Style while promoting his partnership with Dog Chow for the “Service Dog Salute” campaign aimed at raising awareness on the impact service dogs have on military veterans during National Service Dog Awareness Month.
The radio DJ added, “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.”
Time will tell if anything cooks up between Hannah and Alan. For now, we’ll just enjoy their impeccable dance moves!
