Are Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas dating?

According to TMZ, Toscano, who was unexpectedly eliminated from American Idol on Thursday, was spotted enjoying a dinner date with Dancing With The Stars hunk Mark Ballas.

The two were seen leaving the Gulfstream seafood restaurant in Century City on Friday night (April 8).

TMZ reports that Pia was the instigator of the romance by having a friend of hers, who knows Dancing contestant Chris Jericho, pass on her phone number to Mark.

Since they both shoot American Idol and Dancing With the Stars on the same CBS lot in L.A., the hookup was easily set up.
