Is love already blossoming in the ballroom?
With each new season of Dancing With the Stars comes new dating rumors, as a couple's chemistry on the dance floor can make viewers root for an off-screen hookup. Hey, just ask Valentin Chmerkovskiy, who fielded questions about his relationship with Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish all last season. And it looks like he might be doing the same thing with his season 20 partner, Rumer Willis, after the show premieres tonight on ABC!
So how did Val and Rumer react when E! News' Jesse Giddings pressed them about their love lives? Eh, a little awkwardly! Press play to see their responses!
But it seems Val isn't the DWTS dude with his eye on Rumer; that would be her fellow contestant Redfoo as the party rocker and his partner Emma Slater think that she is their biggest competition. Press play on our interview with them above to find out why. (Hint: it has something to do with her "sexiness.")
And all of the celebrity contestants, including Suzanne Somers, Michael Sam and Patti LaBelle, should watch out for Rumer as she'll also have the support of mom Demi Moore, dad Bruce Willis, and the rest of her family when she makes her DWTS debut tonight.
While we already knew how her mom reacted to her joining the show, Rumer tells us Willis was "very excited. He's really a softie, which most people don't know." And he can also dance, something Rumer didn't know about her dad until recently.
"Someone showed me a clip of him dancing on Moonlighting," she says. "He's really good. I'm really impressed!
To hear more from Rumer, Val, Redfoo and Emma, watch our interviews with the two pairings above!
DWTS kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
