Canadian skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir brought home their third gold medal from PyeongChang for their incredibly sexy ice dancing that set the Internet’s heart aflutter and other parts a-quiver. Virtue and Moir deny they are in a romantic relationship, and much like everyone else, Ellen DeGeneres does not believe them.

The skaters appeared on Ellen on Tuesday after a fan campaign pushed them there; Virtue admits they’re generally “fiercely private” and this was their first round at the Olympics with a social media presence. You gotta wonder, have they been reading their mentions?

DeGeneres explains to Moir and Virtue (who obviously know) that a lot of people think the chemistry the two exhibit on ice makes people think they’re a couple. Pause.

“So, are you a couple?” she asks, flat out.

Virtue delivers a pretty canned response denying that they are, but says it’s a “compliment” to their performances, blah blah.


“So, you’re a couple,” Ellen responds. She then subjects them to the “Definitely Not Dating Game.” Unsurprisingly, they know each other extremely well.
