Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson are heading into week 6 of Dancing With the Stars with the odds stacked against them. The Shark Tank star and his pro partner finished last week at the bottom of the leader board, earning all 6’s from the judges for their quick step. It was their lowest set of scores so far this season. As Herjavec said in his blog for Entertainment Weekly, he got off on the wrong foot, “literally not metaphorically.”
On Monday night on DWTS, there will be no elimination, so Robert and Kym are safe until at least next week. The theme is “Spring Break,” and “#TeamSharkaroo” will be dancing an individual and a group dance with team YOLO. As they get set for Monday night’s broadcast, Herjavec posted some inspirational messages on Twitter.

Earlier this season E! News confirmed through sources that the recently-separated Herjavec and single Johnson are dating off-camera. Before their ill-fated quick step last week, Dancing With the Stars producers chose to show a behind-the-scenes clip of Herjavec calling Johnson “babe” and “sexy.”

Rumors of dating between the contestants is common on DWTS, even when one is known to be in a relationship. Derek Hough and Nastia Liukin just denied they have any outside-the-ballroom relationship, and Liukin confirmed she has a boyfriend.
As for Robert and Kym, Herjavec joked recently that Johnson was “already in a relationship,” referring to her beloved dog. Kym posted a picture of her puppy this week on Instagram, showing that she was getting some help with her pilates workout.
