Just days before the March 19th premiere of the all new season, sources tell PEOPLE that Courtney, 28, is currently in talks with DWTS producers and could make an appearance on Monday night.
Courtney’s addition to the show would be a pretty big surprise as the cast has already been announced and this would mean she only has five days to rehearse while her competitors have had three weeks.
However, adding a last minute Bachelor contestant to the series is not a first for DWTS. If you recall, former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft, was also a last minute add-in back in 2009, as she replaced an injured Nancy O’Dell, after being famously dumped by Jason Mesnick.
The decision to include Courtney, aka controversy on the show, also makes sense as the reaction from this season’s pick of “celebrities” has been very lackluster.
Adding more fire to the speculation, when contacted by PEOPLE, a rep for DWTS would only state: “We do not comment on casting rumors. You’ll have to tune in Monday and see.”
