"Honestly, the only thing we have thought about the last couple of months is the competition," Bryan toldEntertainment Tonight anchor Mary Hart during a Wednesday interview. "We have enjoyed each other's time. I can't believe I met him and [instantly] felt like I knew him for 10 years."
Bryan, a 23-year-old co-star of Disney's The Cheetah Girls films, and Ballas, a 22-year-old who was participating as a Dancing with the Stars professional for the first time during the fifth season, always appeared to have good chemistry both on the dance floor and in rehearsals.
Bryan and Ballas have apparently taken a play from Lopez and Smirnoff's gameplan as evidenced in their answer when Hart asked if they're a couple.
"Yes. No," Bryan and Ballas answered in unison with a laugh. "Or are we?" added Ballas.
In addition, Bryan and Ballas held hands during their Wednesday morning appearance on ABC's Good Morning America and during their interview with Hart.
"I've loved every minute dancing with Sabrina. I love her," Ballas toldPeople after the pair's Tuesday night elimination. "We've had a blast. I'm sad I won't get to see her tomorrow."
