When someone likes a TV show, they can become obsessed with it; and not only with the show itself, but with the characters or the people that are part of it.
That was exactly what happened to Dancing With The Stars fans when they passed by Jenna Johnson's Instagram page on February 10, 2018, and saw something they didn't expect.
In one of her stories, which only stay visible for 24 hours before disappearing, the 23-year-old was wearing a rather large diamond ring, as reported by Entertainment Daily.
Many fans and followers were excited by the sight of the piece of jewelry, which they believed that it had been a gift from Val Chmerkovskiy, with whom she has been dating since 2017.
But what people considered to be an engagement hint turned out to be just a joke. Although it was indeed an engagement ring, it wasn't Johnson's; it belonged to her friend Lindsay Arnold Cusick's.
According to the source, Johnson was just trying to have a little bit of fun with the ring, pretending that she was engaged to Chmerkovskiy, and driving her fans into a spiral of hope and confusion in the process.
Cusick, who is Johnson and Chmerkovskiy's co-star on Dancing With The Stars, became a professional dancer on the show's 16th season and married her high school sweetheart, Samuel Cusick, on June 18, 2015.
Johnson was one of the bridesmaids, along with Britanny Cherry and Emma Slater, while Witney Carson served as Cusick's maid of honor. So, the ring was real, but the engagement was not.
As reported by Entertainment Daily, so far Jonhson and Chmerkovskiy haven't shown any signs that a possible engagement may be on the horizon. In fact, they haven't been seen together for weeks, especially because she has been on tour with the rest of the Dancing With The Stars Live cast.
