"She's an amazing person," the dancer tells US Weekly. "We have an incredible time together, and, you know, I definitely didn't see that coming and I think neither did she. We enjoy each other's company very much and like I said, she's a great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this could have happened."

And his younger brother Val, currently partnering Elizabeth Berkley on "DWTS," echoes those sentiments.

"I think she's awesome. She's a great girl, and we're great friends. She's an incredible chick and we have a great time," says Val.
