On the premiere of "Dancing with the Stars [VIDEO]" Season 25 on Monday night, social media went wild when they accused Barbara Corcoran of grabbing her partner's crotch. She was quite friendly toward Keo Motsepe, her 27-year-old South African partner. She said she was going to marry him. The "Shark Tank" investor was caught up in the moment.

She explained her side of the story. She admitted that her left hand did go where it didn't belong while they were waiting to get their scores.

However, she made it clear that she didn't grab anything. As soon as she felt something, she realized where had hand had landed, and she quickly moved it away. The real estate mogul emphasized that it was not done on purpose.

She said she was trying to grab Keo's hand.

Barbara and Keo

People could tell that Barbara was only joking about marrying Keo. The 68-year-old contestant has been happily married to FBI Agent Bill Higgins for 28 years. She often talks about him on "Shark Tank." He wasn't in the audience on opening night, but he might show up in the future if Barbara continues. She and Keo received very low scores from all three of the judges. In fact, they were at the bottom of the pack with a total score of 14 out of 30. Two other couples received the top score of 22 out of 30.

Since Keo joined "Dancing With The Stars" six seasons ago, he has been partnered with older women.

He and his partners are usually eliminated close to the beginning of the season. He has been eliminated on the first, second and third week. Only once did Keo make it to the eighth week, and that was with 35-year-old Jodie Sweetin from "Fuller House." Barbara had bragged about having strong legs before the season started. Hopefully, she can use those strong legs to stay on the show. However, no one will be surprised if she will be the first one eliminated.

Not the first time

This is not the first incident like this on "Dancing with the Stars." Fans might remember that during Season 24, bull rider Bonner Bolton accidentally placed his hand on his partner's crotch that caused a social media uproar. Bolton was watching an interview on a monitor when Sharna Burgess came and stood by him. She was wearing daisy dukes and a folded-up plaid top, so it was easy to see where Bolton unintentionally placed his hand over her crotch area. She quickly moved it away and pushed it toward her leg.

It goes to show that some viewers notice everything that goes on during "Dancing with the Stars." It is more than dancing that they see. Watch on next Monday night to see who will be eliminated.
