"Being on tour is an amazing experience, but I couldn't imagine it without Hok," said Schwimmer in the October 22 issue of In Touch Weekly.
Schwimmer, a 19-year-old swing and international Latin dancer from Redlands, CA, and Konishi, a 22-year-old B-boy dancer from Los Angeles, CA, revealed they're a romantic item prior to the So You Think You Can Dance tour commencing last month.
"He is by far the best thing that ever happened to me," Schwimmer gushed to In Touch about Konishi. "It's exciting to know that I have my best friend and my love with me at all times."
Schwimmer said she was first introduced to her new beau by her brother -- So You Think You Can Dancesecond-season champ Benji Schwimmer -- who knew Konishi because he also competed during the show's Summer 2006 second installment without making it as a finalist.
But romantic sparks didn't fly between the two until both appeared as So You Think You Can Dance third-season finalists over the summer. Konishi said he's glad that the two can finally be open about their feelings for each other and put to rest rumors that they were instead dating their So You Think You Can Dance 3 partners.
"The funniest thing is when people still ask us if there is anything between me and [Jaime Goodwin] or between Lacey and [Kameron Bink]," Konishi told In Touch. "Those rumors were spreading while we were on the show!"
