Chrishell Stause’s heartbreaking divorce played out during last season of Selling Sunset, and although she is moving forward by putting on her dancing shoes for Dancing with the Stars, some fans think The Bachelorette be next.
According to one ABC exec., he’s had his eyes on Chrishell for years, even before she married Hartley. Robert Mills revealed he met with the Selling Sunset star years before she married Hartley.
“She would never remember this. I’ve actually had lunch with Chrishell, this was about 10 or 11 years ago, to talk about being the Bachelorette,” Mills told Nick Viall on his Viall Files podcast on Tuesday, October 27, noting that ABC wasn’t regularly producing seasons of The Bachelorette at the time.
He explained, “There was like four Bachelors for every one Bachelorette. … At that point we didn’t know who it was going to be, so we were looking for people and our casting director said, ‘We should meet with this girl Chrishell Stause, she’s amazing.’”
The former Dancing With the Stars contestant, who was eliminated with partner Gleb Savchenko on the November 2, episode, opened up to fellow dancer Kaitlyn Bristowe about her fictional Bachelorette season.
