Pia Toscano & Mark Ballas Hook Up

4/9/2011 12:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Ballas provided comfort to "American Idol" castoff Pia Toscano last night -- on what appeared to be a date at an L.A. mall, with a special cameo by Paula Abdul!

They were both gussied up as they left Gulfstream restaurant in Century City, as Pia told us she -- like everyone else -- was surprised she got the "A.I." heave-ho.

Until Pia got the boot, they were both rehearsing and shooting their shows next to each other at CBS Television City in L.A.

It's unclear if Mark -- a known chick magnet --  or Pia made the first move.

12 minutes and counting. Only 3 more to go.
Good riddance.

Ugh, what's the appeal? I suppose she's marginally attractive for a 22 year-old, but who can stand her screeching she's calls singing? America definitely got it right this week. I hope they send the other screecher Jacob packing next week.

They would make such a cute couple! Pia is so talented and beautiful that I know she will go far. Getting kicked off Idol now might be the best thing that could have happened to her. Look at all the publicity she's getting much more than if she had finished 3rd or 4th!

Wow! Even a decaying corpse has more personality than this girl.

I can see why she was voted off.

All of the a**holes promoting their websites on this forum are going to ruin it for the rest of us. I love commenting on TMZ articles because it is so simple. This is all gonna change though, with all of these websites being promoted here. Any TMZ fan with hacking skills: please follow these links and go and disable these sites!

Real professional interview with words like "cool", "neat", and a bounch of "aaww's" from reporter.

Thought I was listeing to Charlie for a minute with those lame words.

I don't think Pe Pe is that pretty. There have been numerous people who did not win American Idol and went on with their lives. There are just more people that have a lot more talent then Pe Pe such as Scotty. You cannot win everything in life.

A really smart move to get with any girl after a major rejection. She needs to prove to herself she is still desirable. Much easier to hit it.

I dunno, Carl. Maybe she isn't as naive as you think. Maybe he's her plan B to stay in the limelight after her Idol rejection.

She went on idol as a mediocre (at best) singer, but it got her in the limelight, and will potentially open more doors for her. Dating a little cutie like Mark couldn't hurt...and might help in more ways than one ;)

Gross. He's so greasy and sleazy looking. Poor girl.
