‘Bachelor’ winner claims her fiance threatened to leave her if she participated in DWTS.

Almost a decade ago, a former winner of “The Bachelor” revealed that she was in talks to compete on “Dancing With the Stars,” but her then-fiance objected.

Courtney Robertson, the “villain”-turned-“winner” of Ben Flajnik’s season of the ABC dating show, revealed in an interview on the “She’s All Bach” podcast that she was approached about joining the network’s celebrity ballroom competition shortly after Flajnik’s heart was won.

“That was one I would have loved to do,” the model admitted, adding that she was told she would be able to choose her own dance music and assist in the design of her costumes.

Robertson revealed that she would have received (dollar)150,000 just for signing up, plus “(dollar)30,000 or something” for each week she stayed in the competition.

Robertson revealed, “He was like, ‘If you do it, you won’t have a fiance.'”
