Season 18 champion Meryl Davis and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who is now engaged to fellow dancer Peta Murgatroyd, used the interest to their advantage.
"We needed that," he told Wendy Williams of their chemistry at the time, with a source telling E!
A behind-the-stage moment went viral when Bonner put his arm around Sharna's waist and his arm ended up resting on her crotch. But still, it was more than just that headline-making moment that had viewers talking, as their chemistry was palpable during their debut performance. News that she was rendered "a little bit speechless" and "blushed" for the first time ever on the show over the reaction to their chemistry. That would just be miserable experience for the celebrity, for us and the viewer.
The bride, 30, posted several wedding snaps on Instagram, sharing pics of the couple as newlyweds — as well as a glimpse into their reception.
In the first photo, she and her new hubs were fist-pumping in the air, captioning it "Guess what we did last night! Williams, best known for her stint on the popular Disney movie (as well as a throwback to her girl band days of 3LW — yassss), had been engaged to Cox after seven years of dating.
But was she really has been on for 24 seasons, and throughout its long run many pairings have caused are-they-or-aren't-they-hooking-up speculation…and most haven't seemed to mind playing it up for the camera, garnering more public interest—and potential votes—in the process."Obviously we have chemistry," Sharna told E! "We're not going to stand here and lie and say we don't, but everyone made such a big deal tonight that I didn't really know what to say to it."It will be interesting to see how the pair, who are both single, handles their chemistry moving forward.' pairs isn't all that surprising, seeing as how the show's producers prefer chemistry over clashes."It's based on height, build and personality and compatibility," showrunner Rob Wade previously told E! You don't want to see two people who don't like each other and, quite frankly, we have made that mistake pairing people up who didn't get on so well."In the past, many celebrities have ended up dating their partner, including Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas, Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough, Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff, and most recently Robert Herjavec, who wed his season 20 partner Kym Johnsonin July 2016.
News of the pairing process the show goes through each season when it comes to the celebrities and their professional partners. (Of those four pairings, none won the mirrorball trophy.)But even more stars have played coy when it came to their relationship status while competing, choosing to let viewers and the media speculate about the nature.
