ABC reality boss Robert Mills revealed on Nick Viall's Viall Files podcast that Stause was once in the running to be on The Bachelorette. “She would never remember this. I’ve actually had lunch with Chrishell, this was about 10 or 11 years ago, to talk about being the Bachelorette,” Mills said. On Instagram, Stause responded: "Of course I remember! So funny to think about now."
