Mark Ballas

Sabrina Bryan managed to best Kyle Massey and Carson Kressley in the "Dancing with the Stars" fan vote to get a spot on the upcoming all-stars season. The big question: Is she going to dance with former partner (and boyfriend) Mark Ballas?


The Disney Channel star will be paired with Louis van Amstel. She doesn't care, though.

"I just want to be out on that floor. Put me with a broomstick. I don't really care. I just want to be out on that floor," she joked, adding that she wants redemption for being ousted early during her season. "I felt like I really, really disappointed him. He's such an amazing dancer, teacher."

Ballas isn't too worried about Bryan as competition, though: He's got plenty going on himself.

Mark Ballas Reteaming With Bristol Palin

Ballas couldn't reunite with his ex because he was already paired with former partner Bristol Palin. The pair managed to come in third in 2010 - and Palin wants to take it all the way this time.

"It was a pretty successful pairing, because we made it all the way to the end," Palin said of being paired with Ballas.

Mostly, she appreciated his patience while teaching her dances, she said.

"Mark, I am honored to be paired with you again! I love you like a brother, and I can't wait to see if we can't bring home that mirror ball trophy this time around!"

He's a Singer, Too

Ballas is one of those annoying people who can dance and sing. The "DWTS" pro opened for R&B crooner Robin Thicke during a concert in Huntington, New York on Aug. 25.

Ballas has apparently been in the music scene for a long time.

"What a lot of people don't know is I went to music school for a long time and I've been playing music since I was 10 years old and I just had a solo record come out. It's a singer/songwriter kind of pop-rock record," he told Reality TV Magazine.

The album, "Love Hurt Box," is out now and available on his website.

What About His Love Life?

Ballas dated former "American Idol" contestant Pia Toscano for a while, but these days he only has eyes for another singer, Tiffany Dunn. They've been together for about a year and are routinely spotted out on cute dates together. However, they fight, too.

"You're such a d**k when you're drunk!" Dunn screamed at Ballas during a recent fight caught on tape by TMZ cameras.

And what was he fight over? His smoking.
