Dancing With the Stars Season 21 finally gets its rumored romance
Dancing With the Stars has a long history of sparking some serious romance rumors.
In Season 20, it was Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy, along with now-confirmed couple Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson. In Season 19, it was Janel Parrish and Chmerkovskiy again. And Season 18 saw sparks fly between Mirror Ball Trophy winners Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
But in Season 21, the Chmerkovskiy brothers are out of the relationship rumors. At least, for now.
Instead, last night's sexy partner switch-up fueled some serious heat between Alek Skarlatos and pro Emma Slater.
Their romantic rumba had fans swooning, and the passion between the two seemed to continue well after the dance ended.
After their electric performance, Slater told E! News, "From the start, I was like, 'I love this guy, he's great.'" She added, "I wanted to get him."
And when asked if Skarlatos had a crush on his switch-up partner, E! News reports that he blushed and said only, "No comment."
Slater further added fuel to the romance flame when she told People, "From the first day of rehearsal, we were really comfortable with each other. Some people just have that energy that you can have a laugh with straight away and just do normal stuff with."
People also reports that the chemistry was so obvious between the two that they even agreed — on camera, no less — to go on a date!
