Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec have parlayed their on-screen chemistry off-screen. Photos of the Dancing with the Stars partners kissing during a romantic weekend getaway have recently been making the rounds online.
The Shark Tank mogul and his dance partner have already been eliminated from the show and it looks like they’re using the short vacation to get over the sting of being booted out…and to further the chemistry that has been obvious from Day 1 of the season.
The duo, who have always referred to themselves as just doting “friends,” were seen locking lips poolside. They seemed relaxed, smiling and engaging in deep conversation. The two also didn’t seem to mind the cameras as they held hands or kissed in the hotel’s lobby.

Johnson herself has hinted that she was with someone this weekend, posting a photo of her foot alongside someone else’s, a fireplace and 2 cocktails clearly visible.
“Kick up your heels…it’s the weekend,” she captioned the photo.
Fans of DWTS, as well as the other contestants, are unlikely to be surprised with the revelation, as the 51-year-old Herjavec and Johnson were said to have clicked right from the start.
Songwriter Riker Lynch said that they “all kind of sensed it from the very, very beginning” while dancer Derek Hough said he thinks the attraction “was instant.”
An insider says that Herjavec and the 38-year-old Johnson were just perfect for each other and that the relationship couldn’t have come at a better time for the businessman.
Herjavec recently separated from his wife of 15 years, Diane Plese.
“It’s been a terribly difficult year,” the avid investor said in an interview. “I was hollow and broken.”
But with Johnson, the source says Herjavec has found someone he has “insane chemistry” with and concludes that the two “are actually a great match.”
