Firm bodies writhing against each, skimpy outfits and hours alone together mastering intricate dance moves creates the perfect environment for a showmance - but has "Dancing with the Stars" pro Derek Hough partaken in any hookups with fellow pros during his time on the hit ABC reality competition?
Derek, who guest co-hosted Monday's Access Hollywood Live and kicks off his 10th season as a pro dancer this fall, told Kit Hoover that the idea of hooking up with any of his fellow pro dancers is out of the question.
"All the pro girls are like my sisters now," he said.
Derek might not be mixing business and pleasure at "DWTS," but that doesn't mean others aren't.
"I think there are some hookups, I'm not gonna lie, but I'm not one of them," he continued.
According to Derek, the producers don't have any rules about the stars and pros getting down outside the ballroom.
"[The producers] don't say anything about it... You can't stop love! If it happens it just happens," he explained.
With an "All-Stars" edition with past winners and fan favorites debuting in September, Derek said he has "no input" in picking his partner.
"Whoever I get, I want to have the best time with. I like to just make it about them," he said.
"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" premieres on Monday, September 24 at 8/7c on ABC.
