Cheryl Burke may know her way around a mambo, but if the Dancing With the Stars pro has her way, she’ll soon be seen handing out roses to hard-bodied hunks on the next season of The Bachelorette.
In an interview with journalists after last night’s episode of DWtS, Burke claimed that she’s already met with Bachelorette producers, but her participation is far from a sure thing. “I did interview with the execs and we’ll see what happens in the future,” Burke said. “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.”
As Burke explained, being a super-hot ballroom dancer on a hit TV show hasn’t helped her love life. “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. I dated a couple of guys over the summer and it turned out all bad so I figure if someone were to make the choice for me, then maybe I would have a better chance. I would make a choice…out of a pool of men, hopefully there would be one special person.”
With or without Burke, a new season of The Bachelorette is scheduled to air in summer 2013.
