Are "Dancing with the Stars" professional bull rider Bonner Bolton and sexy partner Sharna Burgess saddling up off the set?

The reality show's season 24 premiere showed lots of flirtation and spicy innuendo involving the handsome rodeo star, 29, and the longtime "DWTS" pro, 31.

Burgess was seen blushing and gushing over Bolton in rehearsal footage that showed her first meeting him in his Texas hometown.

Then Bolton declared on camera as their training progressed, "I'm dancing with the prettiest lady in the house."

Judges continued to stoke the romance angle after the couple performed their Monday premiere episode cha cha, for which they received a solid score of 22.

Bruno Tonioli teased the dancer, "Sharna, you're in for the ride of a lifetime!"

And handsome Bonner, who has also worked as a model, told co-host Erin Andrews in their "DWTS" Sky Box interview about his dance coach, "She's been drilling me hard."

After the show, while not outright confirming a romance, Burgess said of dating rumors, "I think they are set on fire right now because of our [rehearsal footage] package and the accidental innuendoes in the Sky Box. Obviously, we have chemistry."

She coyly told FOX411, "Yes, we are both single."

Bolton chimed in, "Definitely, both very single."

In January 2016, Bolton broke his neck after a bull threw him off and he landed on his head, leaving him temporarily paralyzed. The dangerous injury will likely be discussed further on "DWTS" if he continues to progress in the competition.

On Monday night, all of the stars performed but there was no elimination, so they dance again next Monday, March 27.

Bolton told FOX411 about Burgess, "It was so much fun just to dance and to be with such a great partner and teacher. She's been very patient. Obviously, it's not easy to teach a cowboy who was paralyzed just over a year ago from the sport of bull riding to learn how to dance and be coordinated, but she's doing a heck of a job even though I missed some things tonight. I had so much fun and I'm going to feed off of God and try to bring it even more next week."

He said, "I think every woman loves a man that can dance, right?" as Burgess smiled by his side.

The dance professional has been teamed with other rough and ready celeb competitors in the past, such as amputee war veteran Noah Galloway and race car driver James Hinchcliffe. Both of those stars already had girlfriends when they performed with Burgess.

"People with near-death experiences seems to be my cup of tea," Burgess told FOX411. "I love telling their stories" through dance.

Bolton added, "She's like the dance therapist. She gets the special ones, obviously."

And maybe now, she also gets a boyfriend from "DWTS"?
