Fans of former Bachelorette Hannah Brown are so desperate to see the 24-year-old happy after her (double) heartbreak that they’re now hoping she’ll hook up with pro dancer Alan Bersten, her partner on Season 28 of Dancing With the Stars.
Following her controversial finale, which saw Hannah dump fiancé Jed Wyatt amid allegations that he had a girlfriend, the pageant queen asked out runner-up Tyler Cameron, but he's since moved on with supermodel Gigi Hadid. Could Alan be the blonde beauty’s knight in shining armor (or, more accurately, sequins)?
Does Alan Bersten from Dancing With the Stars have a girlfriend?
The 25-year-old appears to be single at the moment, but he’s been linked to two DWTS contestants in the past. Alan was rumored to be dating UFC fighter Paige VanZant after he filled in for an injured Mark Ballas during Season 22 of the competition.
When asked about their purported relationship, Paige coyly responded, "Who knows! A girl does not kiss and tell!"
Five seasons later, Alan was partnered with model and social media personality Alexis Ren. The duo’s undeniable chemistry helped them secure fourth place.
In an October 2018 interview, the influencer admitted, "I am developing feelings for Alan… And I didn’t see this one coming. But it happened really quickly though, so I think I’m still trying to process it."
But any romance between the pair fizzled shortly after filming ended. "I haven’t spoken to her in a while. I’m not gonna lie. I’m gonna be honest," Alan revealed in March.
He also stated that he’d like to keep things professional on DWTS from now on. "No more showmances for me. I’m done!" the entertainer declared.
Alan Bersten and Hannah Brown laughed off speculation that they’re an item.
After their cha-cha-cha earned the couple a 20 out of 30, the second-highest score of the night, it became clear that Hannah and Alan are a force to be reckoned with this season — but the heat between them remains firmly on the dance floor.
When asked about their obvious chemistry, Hannah said, "Look, we're having a great time… I think everybody has had this [Bachelorette] journey with me, and it's been focused on finding a person that I'm going to spend my life with, but right now, that's not what I'm focused on."
Alan added, "I want her to fall in love with dancing! She’s forced to spend the next few months with me."
Despite claims that their partnership is strictly platonic, the twosome couldn’t help but gush over each other on Instagram.
"Guys!!!!! We did it!! [Hannah] you are incredible. I’m so excited to be dancing with you all season!! Let’s do this fam!!" Alan wrote shortly after the premiere. Hannah later remarked, "ALAN-BAMA HANNAH. Coming in hot. I’m so excited for this season with [Alan] — we’re a good time."
Get ready because the dating rumors have only just begun... and we have a feeling this pairing is gonna make it to the finale!
