Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten shared their first kiss on last night’s episode of Dancing With The Stars, but the romance isn’t exactly sitting well with viewers. Viewers are reacting on Twitter to the romance and it isn’t all positive.
Some believe that Alan only confessed that he had feelings for Alexis to avoid any awkward conversations with her and the producers.
Felt like watching the bachelor and not DWTS. I think Alan is playing along to avoid a bad thing. This "relationship" will end when he gets a new partner. Just too young. Don't put that crap on DWTS. We Want dancing!

I guess showmances do work on America because Alexis wasn't in the bottom this wk, but all my positive feelings towards her are gone. All I do is CRINGE now when I see her w/Alan. I'm so uncomfortable. #DWTS

@DancingABC Stop making DWTS look foolish! Terrible scores, unreal but you both are making a mockery of DWTS Unprofessional on Air. Sorry to see that Alexis tosses her SkyBear to the wind for Alan so quickly, keep your drama on Twitter please, Alan shows done you will be too.

I definitely still believe the alexis and alan kiss was staged. I don't buy Alan's confession, and truthfully if it Is real, after the show he goes on tour and she's off to Japan…so good luck with that. #DWTS

Gold Derby reported last week that the romance is actually a turn off for some viewers, revealing that 59 percent of voters didn’t like the relationship and didn’t buy it at all.
On Twitter, Alexis Ren defended her feelings, saying that she would never fake her feelings for television and the votes on Dancing With The Stars. She was in the bottom two last week but managed to bounce back. This week, she wasn’t up for elimination.
if you guys really think I would fake my feelings for a tv show then you don't really know me at all

Last week, Alexis admitted that she had feelings for Alan, but he didn’t reciprocate them. Instead, he left her hanging, making viewers wonder if he was truly interested in her.
In fact, some people believe that this relationship will surely fail as many other Dancing With The Stars relationships have in the past.
I'm sorry, but to me, Alexis + Alan = Val + Janel. And that's NOT a good thing, for those who are in the know. 😑 If you don't know to what I'm referring, Google it. Lesson is this: Real, long-lasting, genuine love is more than just hot chemistry & passing flirtation. #DWTS https://t.co/gi3aKsI87P

When Alexis Ren came onto Dancing With The Stars, she was linked to a man named Sky Bear. When she shared her feelings on the show last week, he revealed on Instagram that he was in a dark place.
Alexis appeared to move on from Sky pretty quickly and wants to give Alan a shot. While some think the showmance is a bad idea, others believe that this romance is very real and are cheering her on.
After the kiss we saw on tv, alan and Alexis probably went hiding to make out… i mean, i sont blame them. Totally ship it!! #DWTS

Alan spoke out yesterday about opening up about his feelings, joking that he didn’t want to leave her wondering how he felt.
“I mean, I didn’t want to leave her hanging. I’m kidding, I’m kidding!” Alan told Entertainment Tonight after the show.
“No, I mean, it was horseback [riding], it was beautiful. It felt right… First of all, I was scared of horses and I was scared of that moment.”
“It’s really hard when [there are] six cameras staring at you, and you’re like, ‘I’m just going to spill my heart right now,” Alexis added. “It’s really weird.”
Dancing With The Stars airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
