It’s a match made in reality TV heaven.

Spring is in the air for Dancing with the Stars hunk Mark Ballas, who calls his rumored new love, American Idol's Pia Toscano, "a gorgeous girl" in a pre-taped interview set to air Monday on Ellen.

Ellen grilled Ballas, appearing alongside his Dancing with the Stars partner Chelsea Kane, on the budding Tinseltown romance.

Ballas said, "Well, you know obviously American Idol films across the hall from us... that's where I kind of met her.

"I'm a big fan of the show -- I'm a musician too -- I love music, and I love live music. I think she is fantastic," he said. "When she was eliminated I was like, mortified."

"You're like, then I should date her," Ellen said.

"She's very nice," Ballas said. "She is a gorgeous girl."

Toscano appeared on Thursday's show, where DeGeneres told the recently-eliminated finalist, "You have such a beautiful voice and now you have a very handsome boyfriend, I understand... how is that going?”

"I'm really just focusing right now on my music," Pia, a New York native, replied. "I just met Ballas... he's a very sweet guy... we're just friends."

"Uh huh, whatever," Ellen joked.

American Idol returns Thursday on Fox at 8/7c.
