October 26, 2014 Updated: October 26, 2014

Bethany Mota and Derek Hough took some time out of preparing for Dancing With the Stars week 7 to go on an outing to a haunted house.

Derek shared a picture on Instagram of the pair posing outside Raymond Hill Mortuary in South Pasadena, California on Saturday night.

The pair are joined by what appears to be two workers at the haunted house, dressed as scary people.

“Bethany Mota bout to get scuurrred!!!” he captioned the picture.

Bethany then shared a picture of Derek clutching her. “Me?!? scared?!? Neverrrr,” she said.

“Haunted house time w Derek Hough.”

Derek and Bethany are one of the frontrunners this season, expected to get in the top tier.

Like many of the teams, the pair have been surrounded by dating rumors ever since they first paired up–and the haunted house pictures sparked some new ones.

“Could they date? Would that be weird?” asked one fan, referring to the age difference between Derek and Bethany.

“They can date,” said another. “My parents are 16 years apart and have Been married for 29 years.”

“Yeah that would be totally fine if they dated tbh because jay z and beyonce are 12 years apart,” added another.

In fact, many of the fans said they hope the pair will start dating. “When they are together … Beth becomes a women in my eyes.she look soo happy with him and grown up.loving them,” said one.

In any case, the dance for Bethany and Derek in the Halloween-themed week should be interesting. They’ll be dancing Paso Doble to Run Boy Run by Woodkid.

And they’ll be utilizing some taiko drums.

Along with individual dances the wekk, the teams will be splitting into two larger teams to perform a group dance. Bethany and Derek are joined with Janel and Val, Lea and Artem, and Michael and Emma in “Team ItsyBitsey.”

The team will be dancing to Black Widow by Iggy Azalea, featuring Rita Ora.
