Dancing with the Stars fosters romance rumors like nothing else, in large part because its many attractive cast members dance suggestively by design.
But when it comes to Cheryl Burke and Chad Ochocinco, it could be more than just rumors, as the two certainly don't hide their devotion to each other.
Their sizzling sexual chemistry has made them fan favorites on Dancing With the Stars, while off the set, the dance partners have been spotted kissing.
Oh, and Chad gave Cheryl a $22,000, 8.5-carat sparkler. A sign that Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke are engaged? Not necessarily, says the NFL star.
"It's a gift for putting up with me," he says.
Chad and Cheryl can barely keep their hands off each other.
Just the same, “She is perfect, man, she is perfect,” he gushes.
"It was a bit of a shocker," Cheryl said of the ring, which she's proudly displayed ever since. "He’s full of surprises. We’re spending every single day together, so it’s kind of hard not to feel that attraction. Chad and I get along great."
Cheryl added that she was instantly drawn to Chad’s competitive spirit as well as his good looks: "He has a great sense of humor and he works really hard.”
But is it love? Only time will tell. Can they make a run at the coveted DWTS Mirror Ball? We'll have to wait and see on that, too. Who are you rooting for?
