We were sad enough to hear that 'American Idol' duo Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery are not dating, but now we find out that the kiss was a hoax, too? Awful. The runner-up appeared on 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' today, where she spilled that her lip lock with the country 'Idol' winner was nothing more than the ultimate dare.

"How about that Scotty guy, huh?" Regis asked Lauren, who was practically giddy in her stage chair, but went sly when her counterpart was brought up. "Oh, he's great!" she replied coyly.

While the 16-year-old Georgia cutie denied that she and the 17-year-old North Carolina cowboy are dating, Regis and Kelly asked the question we are all dying to know: Did she want to kiss him? "Someone dared me to," she spilled, though she wouldn't say who when asked.

"But you wanted to kiss Scotty!" Regis prodded. To which the blushing teen replied, "Well…"

"Double dog dare, that's what it was," she insisted after Kelly brought it up. "You have to do it if you get double dog dared, it's just like the rules."

So there you have it -- double dog dare rules are still in play in 2011, and Lauren Alaina kissed Scotty McCreery on a dare. Somehow, we don't think this will be the last we hear of the pair!
