Who cares about elimination? Certainly, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson don’t. The former DWTS partners were caught kissing and cuddling over the weekend for a private getaway. Now, on that dating thing: If a picture’s worth a thousand words, this one is priceless.
Robert and Kym were seen together on Sunday after they were ousted from the Dancing With the Stars competition, according to a Us Magazine celebrity news report on the couple. Although the lip-lock during their televised routine wasn’t enough to save them from being eliminated, they didn’t let that be the end of their journey together.
Herjavec, 51, and Johnson, 38, were guests at a posh resort in Palm Springs, California. Pictures of the rumored lovebirds showed them kissing and caressing one another. Another snap showed them walking toward their vehicle in the welcome area while locked in couple’s-ish hug. The Aussie dancer even had her hand tucked inside the wealthy entrepreneur’s back pocket.

And yet in another photo, posted on Kym’s Instagram, the couple appear to be relaxing at their mini-vacation getaway. The image shows only the couple’s feet as they lounged by a fire pit with a mountain range in the background.
From the very start, the dance partners appeared to hit things off; their chemistry was seen during their performances and practice sessions. From the chatter on social media, many thought their hands-on display was meant more than just for warm-ups and rehearsals; they appeared to be falling head over heels. Heck, a microphone even captured them saying “I love you” on at least one occasion.
And then came the moment Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson kissed during their performance. On their last dance together, the two held on for a mad embrace — lip to lip. Later, when asked about it, they dismissed it as being part of what “professional dancers” do in the moment to breathe life into the dance theme.
“We were just in the moment,” Robert said.
“It was just part of the dance,” added Kym. “It took me by surprise because I didn’t know if he was going to do it or not.”

However, even with Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec kissing during their ballroom dance routine, it was not enough to stave off elimination. After scoring 62 our of 80 points over two dances, they joined Chris Soules and Witney Carson in a double-elimination on May 4.
It’s not the first time the pair was seen making out. They were spied backstage kissing “when the cameras were off,” according to a previous Inquisitr report. It’s unknown if their relationship will blossom into something permanent, or they will simply remain friends. But if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
