Brown’s season of The Bachelorette ended with her getting engaged to Jed Wyatt. It was then revealed that he went to do the show without ending a relationship with another woman. She ended their engagement and left the door open to get drinks with runner-up Tyler Cameron. That didn’t work out but now she’s dancing on Dancing with the Stars.

Celebrities have previously fallen for their dance partners. Some fans hoped this would be another chance for Brown to find love and her partner happened to be Bersten.

It didn’t take long for there to be romance rumors. They did address it during an Instagram Story when there was a Q & A. A fan asked if they were a “thing.” Brown said, “Yeah, we’re a thing. Team Alabama Hannah!”

That still didn’t stop the rumors from coming. The dance partners only got closer given how far they have come in the competition. They have talked about how their relationship has grown because of that.

Brown said they’re not dating

Many still think Bestern and Brown are dating. One person who questioned her about it is Justin Hartley of This Is Us.

“No, I’m not,” she answered. “We’re great friends. He kind of has to be my best friend. So I make him be. He cries about it, but it has been an amazing experience.”

She also mentioned that she doesn’t have time to date with her schedule on the dancing show. The reality star also revealed that she has “trauma from dating” on The Bachelorette. “We’re not going to date right now,” she clarified. “We’re gonna dance.”

She said they call each other babe all the time

The partners were together during an Instagram Live session and Brown was heard calling Bersten “babe.” She was asked about the meaning behind the pet name.

“We say that all the time,” she told Us Weekly. “I’m like, ‘Babe, come on!’” Some might see this as a sign that there is something more between them. Brown talked about their friendship.

“We are, like, so close at this point,” she explained. “So he could … say anything, and I would be like, ‘Whatever.’ Like, we’re just really at that point where we’ve spent every single day [together]. He’s had to become my best friend. It’s been great.”

Only time will tell if they will take home the trophy this season. It sounds like Brown and Bersten might continue to be friends no matter what happens in the end.
