Dating rumors began to circulate surrounding former “Bachelorette” lead Gabby Windey and “Dancing With the Stars” pro Alan Bersten after they were spotted having dinner together last week.
This news comes just days after the “Dancing With the Stars” live tour ended, and months after Windey and her ex-fiance Erich Schwer called it quits.
Fans Love The Chemistry Between Windey And Bersten
Fans first noticed the chemistry between the two when Windey was competing on “Dancing With the Stars”.
Right before Halloween week, Gabby Windey’s partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, had to sit out after testing positive for COVID-19. Alan Bersten stepped in for Chmerkovskiy so Windey could still dance and compete — which is when fans started to notice a possible chemistry between the two.
On an Instagram post from the “Dancing With the Stars” page of Windey and Bersten performing their Halloween-themed dance together, fans flooded the comments section, calling out the pair’s chemistry, although they were not dating at the time as Windey was still engaged to Erich Schwer, who proposed to her on the “Bachelorette” live finale.
Now that both Windey and Bersten are single, and were spotted having dinner at Avra in Beverly Hills last week, fans are once again shipping the two.
“@alanbersten dis your girl!??? 🤩,” one of Windey’s fans commented on her latest Instagram post, hinting at those dating rumors circulating the internet. “Looking for @alanbersten comment 😍,” another chimed in, though it does not look like Bersten commented on Windey’s recent post.
Details On That Romantic Date
Gabby Windey and Alan Bersten just wraapped up the “Dancing With the Stars” live tour, and were spotted having dinner at Avra in Beverly Hills, leaving around 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
The two ordered champagne and were spotted getting cozy while enjoying dinner and drinks and sharing some laughs.
“They’re both single. He wants to find love and so does she,” a source told PEOPLE. “He asked her out. This is their first date. They haven’t been out at all. He was so excited to take Gabby out. They grew really close while Gabby was on DWTS and they remained close. The hope for both of them is that something blossoms from this.”
Another diner, who witnessed Windey and Bersten at Avra, said they were “constantly smiling and giggling”.
“Alan often leaned in close to Gabby, who was dressed casually in a white tee but dressed it up with a black skirt with a slit and heels with her hair half up and half down,” the eyewitness said. “They sat outside at a private table. Gabby took her phone out to show Alan something and they both smiled.”
“They were very engaged in each other’s conversation,” they continued to explain of the couple. “They ate fried zucchini chips and Gabby took photos of their food as Alan looked at her and smiled. They seemed very into one another.”
Neither Alan Bersten nor Gabby Windey has commented on their date or if they are an official couple.
