'DWTS' Pro Sharna Burgess Defends Bonner Bolton, Digs Him

"They are both very interested in something more", an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Aussie professional dancer Sharna quickly brushed away his hand, but the grope was spotted by plenty of viewers - so much so that Bonner was forced to clear up that he hadn't actually been groping his partner on goal.

Bonner is competing against a host of stars including Olympic gymnast Simon Biles, Glee star Heather Morris, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan and A-Team legend Mr T on the 24th series of Dancing With The Stars. After the moment aired live, Twitter went insane with responses.

And Chris Kattan-who has also suffered a broken neck in his lifetime-channeled his inner Doug Butabi, performing to "What is Love", the head-nodding hit made a club classic in his and Will Ferrell's Saturday Night Live sketch-turned-movie, A Night at the Roxbury.

Sharna, however, is now focused on the competition and training her celebrity partner in ballroom dance.

"I blushed a little bit!"

"The day I met her on the ranch ..." I haven't ever actually blushed on this show. "I'm a little speechless and that never happens to me".

"I was telling her before we started tonight, 'I can't look at you for too long". "I just fell in love with it since then, watching my dad - he was always my hero - and then I just thought it was awesome how one small man could face these giants out there in the arena and dominate that challenge". She's pushing me hard; I'm working hard. "Just a fiery redhead".

For their routine on Monday, Bolton and Burgess pulled off a super sexy country-themed number set to Luke Bryan's "Move".

The couple will get another chance to show off their skills on the dance floor next week.
