A pair of ABC reality stars have reportedly made a romantic connection.

The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman star Andy Baldwin and Dancing with the Stars professional Karina Smirnoff "hooked up" this weekend at Las Vegas' Palazzo hotel, Us Weekly reported Tuesday.

"Andy and Karina were together by the pool all day Saturday," an eyewitness told Us.

"They were very affectionate.  He was very affectionate with her. He was touching her feet when she was laying on her chaise lounge. He made sure he was always touching her."

After a day sitting poolside, Baldwin and Smirnoff reportedly retreated to MGM to watch a boxing match before hitting the Tao nightclub.

However despite the public coziness, Baldwin brushed off questions about his relationship with Smirnoff.

"Karina is an outstanding dancer and a very sweet girl but that's about it," he told Us on Monday.

Baldwin presented his final rose and also proposed marriage to Tessa Horst during Officer and a Gentleman's May 2007 finale.  Horst accepted both the rose and the proposal, however the couple announced the end of their engagement last August.  They split for good in September.

Earlier this year Baldwin began "quietly dating" Marla Maples before the two were spotted frolicking and canoodling in Laguna Beach and attending a Dancing with the Stars' sixth-season performance episode. They eventually split in May.

Smirnoff and her Dancing with the Stars third-season celebrity partner Mario Lopez called it quits on their romantic relationship last month after more than 18 months of dating.
