Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that Chrishell Stause (ex-Jordan Ridgeway) recently made her debut on Dancing With the Stars – and she’s off to a fantastic start as a competitor on the ABC primetime hit. It’s led many fans to wonder if the former DOOL actress would be open to doing another ABC reality show in the future. Will Chrishell Stause be the next bachelorette? Could DWTS lead to more?
Since Stause is single following her split from Justin Hartley in 2019, she told Entertainment Tonight that she’s taking “baby steps” when it comes to dating again. It’s safe to say appearing on The Bachelorette would mean diving in the deep end, so that’d be quite a leap from the baby steps Stause is currently taking.
With that in mind, Stause doesn’t seem so sure The Bachelorette would be the best fit for her. She hinted that dating’s hard enough as it is, so joining that kind of reality show might mean adding to the struggle of it all.
“As far as another ABC dating show… a girl’s just trying to make something work, so let’s not put any more pressure on it than needs to be,” Stause insisted in an interview with ET’s Lauren Zima. “I don’t think that would be the right avenue for me.”
However, perhaps Days viewers and DWTS fans should hold out hope! You should never say never when it comes to The Bachelorette or another similar gig. As Stause becomes more comfortable with the dating process, who knows how she might feel down the road?
Stause went on to talk about people sliding into her DMs, so she’s having fun meeting new potential suitors and having interesting chats. The Days of Our Lives alum also appears on Selling Sunset, a popular Netflix reality show.
Now that Stause has added DWTS to her resume, no one can rule out her debut on The Bachelorette at some point.
After all, Stause had reservations about joining DWTS before ultimately signing on. She lost her mother earlier this year and that played a role in Stause’s decision to compete. Stause suggested her mom would’ve been first in line to tell her to go for it.
“There was definitely that moment where something so unexpected — where you have that moment of pause,” Stause told Us Weekly and other reporters last week. “But if I’ve learned anything this year in losing my mom, is that life [is] short. We don’t know how long we’re here for and you have to make the most of it.”
Could Stause eventually reconsider her stance on becoming the next bachelorette? Time will tell, but there’s certainly the possibility that Stause’s run on DWTS will lead to other ABC reality shows.
Stause isn’t ruling out a soap return either since she’s tweeted about the idea of rejoining Days or another daytime drama for some future appearances. She’s keeping her options open!
It’d definitely be great to have Stause back in the soap world as well, so maybe she’ll have more opportunities to think about soon. For now, Stause just has to give it her all on DWTS and try to score that mirrorball trophy.
