Robert Herjavek and Kym Johnson shared a kiss during their contemporary dance this week, but that wasn’t their first smooch on the lips.
According to Mail Online, the rumored couple locked lips as part of “America’s Choice” on Monday night’s Dancing With The Stars, and it had just about everyone talking. Of course, the former Dancing hopefuls (they were sent home on Tuesday night’s double elimination along with Chris Soules and Witney Carson) tried to make it seem like their kiss was just a choreographed step… but fans knew better.
“It was just part of the dance. It took me by surprise because I didn’t know if he was going to do it or not. We just thought, ‘Let’s see how we feel on the night,'” explained Kym.
Robert and Kym didn’t just kiss for the first time on the dance floor, however. The two have shared kisses elsewhere, and have reportedly gone on quite a few dates over the past several weeks. According to Us Weekly, sources say that the two have had great chemistry since they met.
“They are constantly all over each other. She can’t stop talking about what a good, nice guy he is. They have insane chemistry and are actually a great match,” shared a source.
If you watched Tuesday’s episode of Dancing With The Stars, you probably saw the footage of Kym and Robert kissing during practice. The locked lips a couple of times and shared quite a few “I love you’s.”
Last month, Robert Herjavek and Kym Johnson attended the Race to Erase MS gala in Los Angeles together. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, it did seem as though the two were on an “official” public date, but given the fact that they weren’t the only DWTS couple in attendance, there isn’t really much proof of that. Rumer Willis and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, also attended the event — and they are not dating.
It’s not uncommon for Dancing With The Stars partners to attend events together, any many of them spend a ton of their free time together while on the show. Many share meals together, go out for drinks, attend parties, and do whatever else is on their schedules together. Many feel as though it helps their bonding process, and that their friendships come to life on the dance floor — which helps their chemistry, and usually helps them earn high scores from the judges (and viewer votes).
Now that Robert and Kym got their “official” kiss out of the way, it will be interesting to see what happens with their relationship. They don’t have any other “forced” interactions since they were voted off DWTS this week, so their relationship will be on their terms now.
Do you think they are dating?
