    So You Think You Can Dance - Ballroom Portion

    Allison and Travis? The way Allison was dancing around Travis on her last dance, and Travis's shocked and devastated looks made me wonder if they are an item or something? Did they know each other before the show? I have never heard the show mention they were friends or worked together, etc...
