Emma Slater may have been eliminated from ‘DWTS,’ but she may have already found something to occupy her time post-competition: dating hot ‘DWTS’ contestant Alek Skarlatos! Could it be?
The romantic dance that Emma Slater, 26, and Alek Skarlatos, 23, performed during Switch-Up week on Dancing With The Stars, wasn’t only impressive; it revealed some amazing chemistry! Though they went back to their partners after the switcheroo was over, fans couldn’t help but wonder if there was something romantic going on behind the scenes, too.
Emma gave fans a tiny bit of insight into that rumored relationship while answering questions during her DWTS exit interview with Hayes Grier on Good Morning America October 27. She was asked point blank if she and Alek, the heroic Army veteran who took down a terrorist on the Paris train, had ever been on a date. Sorry kids, it hasn’t happened yet!
“We didn’t go on a date yet. We’ll see,” Emma said. “I should because I kind of broke his nose!” It’s true! Emma accidentally broke Alek’s nose while they were rehearsing for their amazing switch-up dance on October 12! It was feared that Alek wouldn’t be able to go on that night, but luckily this tough guy powered through.
The key word in that statement is “yet.” She said they haven’t been on a date YET! So when are these two getting together? Emma went on to tell GMA that she and Alek are “great friends,” and “still close.” Well, well! Alek hasn’t done much to squelch their dating rumors, either. When paired together for Switch Up week, he was asked if he had a little crush on Emma. His reply: “No comment.” So cute!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Emma and Alek would make a cute couple? Tell us in the comments!
