Menounos was incredibly grateful for the chance to do this and proud of what she's accomplished

We asked her about this week. "Everything became a huge obstacle this week, obviously with these injuries, and the fact that the dances weren't quite coming together and didn't until we were on the dance floor. Literally. So we finished last night and I was so happy, I was over the moon and I said to him I did what I had to do. And tomorrow Que Serra. Whatever happens from this point on, I actually tweeted that, no one will ever know. But I did it. I'm happy and I'm proud of what I did."

These two have had incredible chemistry and we wanted to know why. Hough says, "I just fancy Maria," who replied, "I think we saw that in a package. We had a lot of fun together and I think because I was so much weaker than everyone else and we spent a lot more time in rehearsals than other people, we did. They told us this week that we rehearsed like 23 hours more per week than anyone else."

We asked who they think will win, Hough said, "That is tough. They are all really strong. Everyone has the strenghts and weaknesses, it depends on what the audience want to go for. If they go for technique? Are they going for showmanship? It's whatever the audience picks because they all so different."
