Playing EXCLUSIVE: Sharna Burgess and Bonner Bolton Talk Explosive Chemistry on 'DWTS,' Avoiding Another Handgate

It's no secret that Dancing With the Stars pair Sharna Burgess and Bonner Bolton look pretty great together, on and off the dance floor.

The 31-year-old dancing pro and the 29-year-old bull rider have had all eyes on them this season, thanks to their explosive chemistry, which doesn't show any signs of stopping soon. On Sunday, Burgess shared a steamy pic of her and Bolton getting super close, previewing their upcoming waltz on Monday's show.

"It's been one heck of a week for @bonner_bolton and I, to be honest... kinda stressful," she wrote. "However, all the controversy aside I have to tell you... this cowboy can waltz!!! He tells me it's because it reminds him of the Texas two step... so this dance is inspired by exactly that and the culture surrounding it. He's worked his butt off and is on track to kill it tomorrow. Get ready for it loverz."

Burgess' "controversy" mention is, of course, referring to the pair's unintentional viral moment last week, when backstage cameras caught Bolton wrapping his arm around Burgess and his hand going quite a bit lower than her waist. ET's Cameron Mathison caught up with the duo at their DWTS rehearsals on Friday, where Bolton explained how he's going to avoid another mishap.

"It got a lot of attention, that's for sure," Bolton told ET. "I'm definitely going to be more cautious of where my hands are."

"Obviously, I don't know what to do with my hands," he joked, before getting serious. "It's really .. it was so unintentional and I have all the respect on and off the dance floor for this young lady, so it's totally cool."

"We're good," Burgess confirmed. "It's alright."

The pair also acknowledged their obvious spark. The two bonded early on when Bolton took Burgess out for Cajun food on the first day they met in Texas.

"We have a great chemistry getting to know each other, but obviously we're three weeks into this thing of having met each other on his ranch, and we're having a lot of fun, but our priorities obviously are getting Bonner through this competition as far as he can possibly go," Burgess said. "So, in the meantime, we're having a lot of fun getting to know each other and we do have great chemistry."

"She's really good to get along with," Bolton added of his partner. "We actually have a lot in common, I think, in that our personalities are real similar, but that can make it kind of challenging. Sometimes, I think, I get on her nerves a little bit."

Still, Bolton didn't shut the door on a future romance between them when asked if he would ever date Burgess.

"I'm gonna have to see where that one goes, and take that into consideration, but we'll just leave that a mystery," he said.

On Sunday, Bolton Instagrammed that he's feeling good about Monday's waltz.

"I hope it touches everyone's heart and that you all enjoy it as much as I enjoy dancing to it! #vote #teamdenimndiamonds," he wrote, alongside a cute picture of him with his arm around Burgess.
