Dancing With the Stars’ charismatic team of Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson are set to perform a Mary Poppins-themed dance Monday night. It’s Week 5 of the competition, and Robert and Kym have developed a reputation based in large part on the never-ending speculation about a possible real-life romance. Both have been active on social media to give fans regular sneak peeks into their work behind the scenes.
Sunday, that included an Instagram snap of Johnson suspended high above the DWTS ballroom. The classic Mary Poppins scene of Julie Andrews flying in on an umbrella will apparently be replicated by Robert and Kym. In the picture, Johnson is seen from the back with Herjavec far below her on the dance floor, with a pleading look on his face.

Herjavec and Johnson have sung each other’s praises throughout the season, but have remained mum on the topic of romance. Herjavec, father of three, recently revealed he is divorcing his wife of more than two decades. The opportunity to focus on the Dancing With the Stars competition was, according to Herjavec, a welcome distraction.
Fans of DWTS have learned a lot about the Shark Tank tycoon this year, including his love of Ferraris. He has apparently promised Johnson one of the sports cars if they take home the mirror ball trophy. Over the weekend, Herjavec showed off a model from his collection to fellow Dancing competitor Noah Galloway, who seemed impressed with the vehicle.

It even solicited a note of envy from another competitor this year, R5 bassist Riker Lynch.

Galloway will perform an Aladdin-themed dance with Sharna Burgess and Lynch will pay tribute to Pirates of the Caribbean. As with all other episodes this season, due to the elimination of a separate results show, one couple will be sent home at the end of Disney night.
Dancing With the Stars airs at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific on ABC.
