Fans of Dancing With the Stars know the best moves sometimes happen in rehearsal. Kym Johnson proved that Saturday by uploading to Instagram a short video of her and Robert Herjavec practicing a slow and emotional dance. The emotion comes to a sudden halt, however, when Johnson falls flat on her behind.
Johnson made fun of the incident on her Twitter feed, with the tongue-in-cheek hashtag “grace.”

Of course, the jovial relationship between Herjavec and Johnson is part of what endears Dancing With the Stars viewers to the pair. Herjavec tweeted a costume dilemma they had on Friday, as they tried on bright colors for their upcoming performance.

Of course the dancing partners have yet to confirm they are in a romantic relationship. But that has yet to stop the relationship rumor mill from swirling. After their rumba last week, Fox 411 interviewed the Australian dancer and the Canadian business tycoon, and found them to be in a teasing mood. Johnson compared the star of Shark Tank to a beloved animal in her home country.
“You’re still a shark but you’re like a koala [bear] sometimes. Koalas are so sweet… They’re cute and cuddly.”
Herjavec did not gush over the comparison.
“Koala?! I hear that koalas eat papaya leaves and get high and fall out of the trees… Is that what you’re saying about me?”
As for their chemistry, they claim it was on display during their performance. Herjavec said, “I was sexy,” and Johnson agreed.
“You WERE very sexy. I felt it.”
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson’s performance on Monday will feature a tribute to his late mother. Before the season began, Herjavec told The Toronto Star that his mother was a huge DWTS fan, even more so than she was of his other television appearances.
“She liked ‘Shark Tank’ and she liked ‘Dragons’ Den,’ but ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ that was a big deal.”
As this season’s Dancing With the Stars heads into its fourth week, Johnson and Herjavec face stiff competition from the likes of Derek Hough and Nastia Liukin, Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy, as well as well-known names such as Suzanne Somers, ‘Bachelor’ Chris Soules and Patti LaBelle.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays on ABC.
