It’s inevitable every season on DANCING WITH THE STARS. Rumors fly of a hook-up between one or more of the couples. Sometimes it’s true, sometimes we are lead to believe it’s true for ratings. Either way Val Chmerkovskiy has had his fair share of tongues wagging, first with Kelly Monaco in the all-star season and then last season with Janal Parrish. Derek Hough publicly hooked up with Shannon Elizabeth his second season on the show and Mark Ballas spent intimate non-rehearsal time with Sabrina Bryan, as did Karina Smirnoff with Mario Lopez. This season’s “Are they or aren’t they?” couple is Robert Herjavec & Kym Johnson. Their connection is so real and the time they spend together is so genuine that their affection for one another is obvious, whether or not there is more to it remains to be seen.
Regardless of their true relationship status, Herjavec & Johnson earned a commendable 34 points this week, tying for fourth place with big contenders Riker Lynch & Allison Holker. Third place was earned by the beautiful Rumer Willis & Val Chmerkovskiy with 35 points. Nastia Liukin & Derek Hough came in second with 36 points and the charmingly radiant Willow Shields & Mark Ballas came in first with an almost perfect score of 39 points, thanks a lot Len! Stay tuned next week for the self promotional night of Disney.
