Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough a couple?

shannon-elizabeth-derek-hough-dancing-with-the-stars-kiss.jpgI wrote a couple of weeks ago, after Shannon Elizabeth gave Derek Hough a kiss on the cheek as he was loaded into an ambulance, that the rumors would no doubt start that they more than just dance partners.

People has posted the above photo which appears to show them engaged in a kiss.  What do you think?  Are they really a couple, having a fun fling, or just trying to garner more votes?
