Did 'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert Compete On 'The Bachelor' To Get On 'Dancing With The Stars'?

A close friend of Ashley’s tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she didn’t think she’d make it that far on ‘The Bachelor’ — and if she wasn’t going to find love, then she might be able to get her foot in the door of the dancing world!

Ashley Hebert — currently starring as The Bachelorette — hoped to find love on The Bachelor and if she couldn’t, she dreamed of a spot on Dancing with the Stars!

“Going on Dancing with the Stars was one of her reasons for going on The Bachelor,” a source very close to Ashley tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively! “Because of her dancing background,” Ashley thought she would have a shot.

But promoting her dancing career was just an added bonus. “Her main reason for going on The Bachelor was to see what would happen with possibly finding love,” our source explains.

Plus, she didn’t think that Bachelor Brad Womack would keep her around that long, especially to the final three! “She told me she didn’t expect to make it as far as she did on The Bachelor,” says the friend.

“I just didn’t think I’d make it far,” Ashley wrote in a text message to her friend in December — shortly after she finished filming The Bachelor. “Didn’t think I was that irresistible Hahaha jk”

And this isn’t the first time Ashley, who has been dancing since she was a child, made a go for it in the dancing world. “She had tried out for So You Think You Can Dance in 2009,” shares the friend.

We were the first to tell you that Ashley’s dreams may soon come true. A spot has been offered to Ashley for the next season of DWTS! “The show executives would love to have her on for next season, and so they’ve asked if she will join the cast,” a source says. “They are in negotiations, and it is definitely hers if she wants it.”
