The two first got to discussing J. Lo's engagement ring, an 8.5 carat green diamond valued between five and ten million dollars, and how symbolic and meaningful the color is to the singer.

Ross went on to express how he has "always been fascinated by people who break up and years later get back together," which prompted the actress to ask the audience if they're into second chances.

Her show partner turned the question back to her, asking: "Have you ever thought about getting back together with an ex?" Drew did not hesitate with her answer, confessing: "God yes! I've tried so many times."
