'DWTS' Pro Cheryl Burke as the Next 'Bachelorette' May Actually Happen

TV Addict 12

Cheryl Burke, Emmitt Smith, Tom BergeronWhen the talk first popped up about Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke being the next Bachelorette, it really seemed like kind of a joke that would probably never have any real chance of happening. After all, she's the one who brought it up when she appeared on Bethenny back in June -- and she seemed like she was kidding.

But apparently the possibility of her trading in her dancing shoes for roses isn't off the table yet, because Cheryl admitted that she's talked to Bachelorette producers at ABC, so there must be a decent chance of her being the star of the show.

(Isn't it a beautiful thing when two reality TV shows collide?)

Ok, please tell me I'm not the only one rooting for this to happen -- because Cheryl being cast as the next Bachelorette sounds like an awesome and fresh idea to me.

Even though it makes for good ratings, fans are starting to get pretty sick of Bachelor rejects being put in the driver's seat. It's almost like watching the same show over and over again, except the girl in question is making out with a lot more dudes than she did the first time around. (Ick!)

But at the same time, viewers have gotten so used to going into each season of The Bachelorette already knowing a good bit about the lady in question, which definitely makes the show more enjoyable and easier to get hooked on.

By casting Cheryl, producers will get the best of both worlds. Fans will get their fresh face, but at the same time, they'll already feel like they know her (or at least people who watch DWTS will).

Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but I just don't see how ABC can pass up this chance if Cheryl is willing to take it.

Would you watch Cheryl as The Bachelorette?

LOVE IT! I would defintely watch because of Cheryl! I don't watch them now because I always feel like they are just trying to get famous, but Cheryl is already famous on her own. Love her!

I would so watch that. Plus Cheryl would get more than the one token minority guy and the bachelor franchise could finally get some much needed diversity.

Terrible idea. She would be as interesting as watching paint dry. Not a pleasant person.

Kathleen Marie Meyer

I would definately watch! I love Cheryl and think she would be great as the Bachelorette.

I think Cheryl is so interesting and would make a lovely Bachelorette. Dear Cheryl - please don't move in with the winner! Living together before marriage rarely works.

I think it would be awesome to watch Cheryl in the Bachelorette role & also watch her possibly find the love of her life! One if my favorite DWTS pros :))

I agree we need fresh faces on both Bachelor and Bachelorett but not sure about Cheryl. I love her and wish her the best but I would hate to hear/see her get hurt. If she would find happiness then I would be doing a boogie dance for her :)

I woukd definitely follow her as The Bachelorette.
