Gabby Windey's partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, had to sit out for one week during the last season of the competition show after testing positive for COVID-19. Alan Bersten stepped in for Chmerkovskiy so Windey could still dance and compete -- which is when fans started to notice a possible chemistry between the two.

On an Instagram post from the "Dancing With the Stars" page of Windey and Bersten performing their Halloween-themed dance together, fans flooded the comments section, calling out the pair's chemistry, although they were not dating at the time as Windey was still engaged to Erich Schwer, who proposed to her on the "Bachelorette" live finale.

Windey and Bersten just wrapped up touring the United States on the "Dancing With the Stars" live tour, which Windey says has been so surreal.

"I never thought I’d say it but I’m gonna miss it, and after tour my chapter with Dancing with the Stars feels so incredibly complete ❤️❤️❤️."

While on tour, the two were spotted having some fun in the sun alongside "Dancing With the Stars" pros Emma Slater and Gleb Savchenko. The group also visited Walt Disney World when they were in Florida, taking in the sights and sounds of Magic Kingdom.
