Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Swap Bodily Fluids Backstage on 'DWTS' -- Oh My! (VIDEO)

Whew! If you've been watching this season of Dancing With the Stars, then you know that some of the performances have gotten more than a little hot and heavy. William Levy & Cheryl Burke sizzle with sex appeal, Maria Menounos & Derek Hough have already made out, and now even seemingly innocent Melissa Gilbert admits that she and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy have gotten pretty "intimate" with one another.

According to Melissa, she and Maks have had some pretty racy encounters -- ranging from him "lifting her boobs out of the way" to discussing "bootie shorts." (Scandalous!)


And in her own words, Gilbert said: "... we’re on each other literally all day. There are very few bodily fluids we have not exchanged."

Of course, all that sexy interaction is simply for the sake of nailing the dances -- not each other. But while Melissa & Maks are strictly platonic, her comments certainly make it easy to understand why DWTS partners have hooked up in the past and how romance rumors get started in the first place.

When you are spending pretty much every waking moment with an extremely attractive person who is constantly rubbing up against you and running their hands all over your body, it must be pretty tough to resist the temptation to take things to the next level. It's kind of impossible to think that most DWTS duos don't feel some degree of attraction to one another during lengthy rehearsal sessions. And even though many of them have boyfriends or girlfriends already, I can see where it would be easy to get caught up in the moment and fall for the person you're dancing with.

As for real hookups in season 14? If I had to guess, I'd say Mark Ballas & Katherine Jenkins are the most likely pair, followed closely by Derek Hough & Maria Menounos. Out of everyone on the show, those duos seem to have the most physical chemistry.

Take a look at the video clip below of Melissa & Maks -- they're great together, but it's pretty obvious they are strictly business.

Do you think any of this season's couples have taken their relationship to the next level? If so, who do you suspect is getting friendly, and why?
