‘DWTS’: Demi Burnett’s Comments About Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten’s Relationship Will Give You Life

Things may not have worked out for Hannah Brown on The Bachelorette. But, fans are hoping the reality star will get another shot at love with her Dancing with the Stars partner, Alan Bersten. Viewers instantly felt some chemistry between the pair when they performed together on the DWTS stage. Now, Demi Burnett has a few things to say about the rumored relationship between Brown and Bersten. And honestly, Burnett’s comments prove she has earned her spot as Brown’s ride-or-die Bachelor Nation BFF.

Burnett told Brown not to date Bersten on ‘DWTS’

On Sept. 26, Burnett stopped by Nick Viall’s Viall Files podcast. Throughout the episode, Burnett opened up about her life after Bachelor in Paradise. She then revealed how Brown has been doing since starting DWTS.

“I know that she’s nervous, but she’s so excited,” Burnett explained. She also admitted Bersten has been a good match for Brown, as he helps her calm her nerves.

Viall then asked Burnett if there’s anything going on between Brown and Bersten. And the Bachelor in Paradise star gave the perfect response.

“I don’t know. I told her, ‘Don’t sh*t where you eat,'” Burnett laughed as she complimented her former co-star’s dancing partner. However, it looks like Burnett is protective of Brown’s relationship with Bersten — no matter what that may be.

“I don’t know if there’s any chemistry, I don’t want anyone putting all that pressure on her,” the reality star said. “I feel like everyone is like, ‘Oh, they’re gonna fall for each other?’ Who knows!”

Viall and Burnett then joked about the possibility of Brown and Bersten getting together as if DWTS planned the match — and dating rumors — themselves.

“That would be a dream. It would look so amazing for ABC,” Burnett said. “The Bachelorette — we accidentally gave her a really crappy fiancé so let’s give her a hot and single dance partner on Dancing With the Stars.”

Brown addresses dating rumors with Bersten

Burnett isn’t the only one who addressed the dating rumors between Brown and Bersten. On Sept. 29, Bersten and Brown had a quick Q&A session together on Instagram. During this time, one fan asked if the DWTS partners were a “thing.”

“Yeah, we’re a thing,” Brown joked, per E! News. “Team Alabama Hannah.”

Meanwhile, DWTS Season 27 winner Bobby Bones told Life & Style Magazine Brown and Bersten are not dating. “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,” Bones said. “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.”

The publication also touched base with Brown prior to the DWTS premiere. And it looks like a new romance isn’t exactly her top priority right now. “I have not thought about that at all,” Brown revealed. “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.”

Although some fans want to see Brown and Bersten get together on DWTS, it’s important to remember reality stars are still people. Just because they look good as a pair on a reality competition doesn’t mean fans should pressure them into dating. Remember, this isn’t The Bachelor franchise. Regardless, there’s plenty to look forward to when DWTS airs Monday nights on ABC. So stay tuned.
