Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson return to the Dancing With the Stars ballroom for Tuesday night’s finale. The charismatic couple who consistently dodged questions of a real life romance will perform an encore of their week 1 cha-cha-cha.
Although the couple never said they were dating, despite persistent questions from reporters, tabloid photographers caught them kissing a few short days after their elimination. Kym Johnson later confirmed that Robert is definitely still a part of her life.
Entertainment Tonight reported last week that Robert and Kym have been together since the start of the Dancing With the Stars season. The show interviewed several DWTS professionals who expressed happiness at the couple’s union. Derek Hough, who recently said he may not return for Season 21 of DWTS, said it’s a match made in heaven.
“I think it was instant. When I found out they were dancing together I was like, first of all, that’s the man of her dreams. The fact that he felt the same about her — I couldn’t be happier for them.”
Riker Lynch, who is in the running to win the mirror ball trophy, said the affection between the two was obvious.
“Oh I love it and I think we all kind of sensed it from the very, very beginning.”
Carrie Ann Inaba, who often commented on the couple’s connection when judging their dances, said as much to ET.
“[Their romance is] like a fairy tale. I think that they are incredible. When they danced together their chemistry was so exciting.”
As for Tuesday night, Kym will be fighting through an injury she suffered after Robert and Kym were eliminated. She told Glamour blogger Jessica Radloff she had a tear in her hamstring, but was resting the muscle before rehearsals.
