After Emily Maynard’s season of “The Bachelorette”, we were kind of curious as to who would be following in her footsteps to find love on TV. Then, lo and behold, we’ve learned that “Dancing With The Stars” pro dancer Cheryl Burke is trying to put her name in the hat.
Cheryl revealed, “I did interview with the execs and we’ll see what happens in the future. It’s not a firm offer. It hasn’t been an offer but if they offer it to me, I would love to do it.”
A couple of weeks ago, rumors began circulating that Cheryl was looking to take part in the popular dating reality TV show. She said, “I have met with the producers of ‘The Bachelorette’ and I also have met with ABC producers and development executives, just to develop other shows. I realize that ‘Dancing’ won’t be on air forever. I’m taking this opportunity now to develop shows. I met with different high-powered producers, companies and networks about possibly doing new shows, and ‘The Bachelorette’ happened to be one of them.”
She added, “It sounds crazy but I think I’m just so married to my work and I rarely meet new people. I’ve been around the same people for the last six years. I have maybe a month and a half of down time and all I want to do during that time is be with my family and sleep so it’s hard for me to be introduced to guys. I make the wrong choices.”
What do you think of the idea of Cheryl Burke doing “The Bachelorette”? Would she be a good choice for producers to go with for the lead role on the show?
