Alexis admitted on Dancing with the Stars' episode on Monday night she's "developing feelings" for Alan, but according to Us Weekly, Alan doesn't want to act on how he might be feeling -- at least for right now.
"Alexis' feelings for Alan are real! She adores him," a source told Us. "Right now Alan is flattered, but wants to keep it professional while they are still competing on the show."
But Alan's desire to keep things strictly platonic between the pair appears to be temporary.
The source said Alan, 24, is "open to seeing what's next" for the couple once their time on Season 27 ends.
"He thinks she's super sweet and beautiful," the source noted.
Before taking the stage on October 29 with their Halloween-themed jazz routine, Alexis, 21, dished in a video package how she was "developing feelings" for Alan.
"Alan, he's awesome. He's super outgoing. He's definitely been a really good reflection for me to not take myself so seriously. It's so much fun to dance with someone that you have a connection with. It's almost like time slows down," Alexis told the cameras.
"We communicate not just through our steps and our movements, but with our hearts too. I am developing feelings for Alan... And I didn't see this one coming. But it happened really quickly though, so I think I'm still trying to process it."
