Both have seriously dated former dance partners who they were paired with from the show, but none of their relationships have panned out so far…the list of broken relationships just keeps getting longer.
Ballas has confirmed there is a gay pro-dancer on the show…who do you think it could be?
Ballas remained tight-lipped on who he's partnered with, but said he found out who it was when he showed up to a location and there she was!
(So those behind-the-scenes reels showing the moment of truth are real! "The 29-year-old dancer-musician also quipped, "Taylor Swift maybe? I think I would need some really high shoes for myself, but if Taylor Swift did the show, I think this is the one time the height doesn't matter."So make that his "Wildest Dreams" partner.
)We wondered who his dream partner would be, now that he has 17 seasons (and two titles) under his belt, and Ballas does still have a few celebs in mind."Shakira is always one of my top picks, Jennifer Aniston is one, Ellie Goulding is another," he revealed. The stars and the pros don't get a say in the selection process; rather, the producers choose the pairings based on myriad factors, including height, size, and personality.
He was awarded the honor by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network at the organization’s Respect Awards.
When will Derek Hough and Mark Ballas feel comfortable coming out?
Both Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy reportedly would tease Ballas and Hough, with Maksim (while still on the show) commenting that the two should “get a room” when he’d spot them together on set, tattled the Enquirer.
The two pro dancers have had a decent string of women in their past, though many were either on the show at some point, or somehow tied to it.
Making their new venture even more suspicious is the fact that neither had any prior experience with real estate or flipping houses.
