- Hannah Brown detailed her relationship with her “DWTS” partner Alan Bersten in her new book.
- Although the two had great chemistry and even won the show, off-screen, things were “volatile.”
- According to Brown, they were “not compatible people.”
When “Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown appeared on season 28 of “Dancing With the Stars” — which she’d go on to win — there was speculation about her relationship with her partner Alan Bersten thanks to their chemistry on the dance floor.
But two years later in her new book, Brown revealed what their partnership actually was really like, calling it “volatile.”
“Our chemistry on the stage led to the press speculating that we had something more going on between us, but we didn’t. Off the dance floor, we were not compatible people,” Brown wrote in her book, “God Bless This Mess.”
“We performed well together, for sure, but we weren’t really compatible in the rehearsal studio, either,” she wrote.
Brown also explained that their communication styles were “just totally different.”
As Brown explains it, there are “always” conflicts and tears between partners, but “Alan and I had the most volatile relationship of the season, by far.” She wrote, “It was either we acted like best friends and true partners, or we couldn’t stand each other.”
Brown added that, sometimes, after she’d share something personal with Bersten, “there were times when he would just blow me off.” She added that he “didn’t even ask me about my ‘Bachelor’ stuff” until they were being filmed for a behind-the-scenes clip.
“It felt like we were on pretty different frequencies,” she concluded.
Bersten, for his part, told People in December 2019 after their win, “Hannah and I, it was a different partnership than I’ve ever experienced.”
Recently, Brown has shown her support for Bersten and his season 30 “DWTS” partner, Amanda Kloots. The duo came fourth in the finale on November 22.
“Overall, I wish him the best, and I know that he does for me too,” Brown told Entertainment Tonight.
Brown’s book, “God Bless This Mess,” was released November 23.
