Julianne Hough is allegedly in talks with ABC to star in the next season of The Bachelorette, according to a tabloid.
Julianne Hough could star in the upcoming season of The Bachelorette. The network has allegedly reached out to the Safe Haven actress to appear on the reality dating show.
Julianne Hough could be the next Bachelorette
Julianne Hough might star in the next season of ABC’s The Bachelorette, OK! reported. The potential move allegedly came after a reported dip in ratings. The viewership for Season 17 dropped at an all-time low for the franchise and the management is doing its best to improve the ratings.
“ABC execs are desperate to shake things up,” an unnamed insider told the outlet.
“Now that Julianne won’t be returning to Dancing With the Stars this fall, they think people would love to see her somewhere else on the network.”
The tipster added that the Curve star would be excited by the prospect of her leading the reality show since she is not seeing anyone at present. The source was convinced that the celebrity would add some spice to the show.
Julianne on The Bachelorette rumor debunked
Gossip Cop examined the report and agreed that Julianne Hough would no doubt bring viewers on the show. However, there is no evidence that she is joining the show.
Hough has been part of Dancing With the Stars and served her time on America’s Got Talent. However, the rumor-debunking site noted that she seems to be moving away from TV these days.
Hough has been involved in various projects. She has also partnered with businesses and charities close to her heart. Just recently, she launched her own production company, lifestyle website, and wine company.
Also, the Footloose star has been very private when it comes to her love life. So, it’s very unlikely that she will agree to star in The Bachelorette where the show revolves around her dating life.
