Their chemistry almost made Carrie Ann Inaba nauseous!
In the wake of speculation that the Shark Tank star had taken his partnership with Johnson to a new level, PEOPLE asked the duo to talk about how well they work together and whether their off-screen canoodling was just for the cameras.
“I don’t do anything for publicity,” Herjavec said. “From the moment I met her, I love hanging out with her. We are having a great time.”
Herjavec joined the show after hitting rock bottom (and even contemplating suicide) after separating from his wife of 24 years.
Since then he’s been spending eight hours a day practicing with the eligible Johnson.
At a March 16 afterparty for the show’s season premiere at Hyde Kitchen + Cocktails in Los Angeles, the DWTS duo were spotted “canoodling,” according to an onlooker.
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
