Karina Smirnoff: Shannon Elizabeth & Derek Hough Like 'Friends With Benefits'

Maybe it's the steamy performances, sexy wardrobes or long nights of practice, but there's a new romance on the sets of this season's 'Dancing with the Stars'.

Word is that Shannon Elizabeth and her partner Derek Hough are more than just dancing buddies after the two were spotted kissing in Malibu.

"They might have been auditioning for a new romantic comedy, like Friends with Benefits," dancer Karina Smirnoff (photosKarina Smirnoff photos) joked to 'People' magazine when asked about the romance.

"They’re both hot, young single people, so why not?"

After their rumba routine this week, host Samantha Harris commented on the couple's "great chemistry" and asked about a buddy romance but neither wanted to admit it.

While dancer Cheryl Burke (photosCheryl Burke photos), who's a regular on the show told Entertainment Tonight: "They should just admit it."

"Yeah, she's been single for a few weeks, or a few hours? So what's the problem? Single is single."
