Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten's chemistry goes way beyond the ballroom.
In an exclusive sneak peek of their interview package that will air during Monday's Dancing With the Stars, the model admits she has developed feelings for her dance partner.
"Alan, he's awesome. He's super outgoing," she explains. "He's definitely been a really good reflection for me, to not take myself too seriously ... we're cute dorks."
"It's so much fun to dance with someone who you have a connection with," she adds. "It's almost like time slows down. We communicate not just through our steps or our movements but with our hearts too. I am developing feelings for Alan, and I didn't see this one coming. It happened really quickly though, so I think I'm still trying to process it."
