There might be a romance blossoming for Pia Toscano. The "American Idol" contestant, who shockingly got the boot last Thursday, April 7, has gone on a date with "Dancing with the Stars" professional dancer Mark Ballas, and according to TMZ, it was all thanks to wrestler Chris Jericho.
Words are, 22-year-old Pia has a friend who is friends with Chris, who is competing on this season of "DWTS". After the aspiring singer gave her friend her phone number in a piece of paper, the friend passed it along to the 40-year-old wrestler who passed it onto 24-year-old Mark. It was further noted that Mark rescheduled a music video shoot for the date.
Before Pia was eliminated from "Idol", she and Mark were rehearsing and shooting their shows next to each other at CBS Television City in Los Angeles. They were spotted going out together to Gulfstream restaurant last Friday night, April 8.
When talking about her elimination during a conference call with reporters earlier that morning, Pia confessed, "It's funny because the night before I had a weird feeling in my stomach. And I said to my parents, 'You know, I kind of feel like I'm going to be in the bottom three tomorrow.' And they said, 'No, no, be confident. You're going to be fine. You're going to be fine.' And then when it happened, it was kind of like I expected it. It was weird."
