Earlier this week, Hough told People magazine he’s amazed by Pickler’s dance skills saying, “She’s got that ability, which for me is so fun to discover. It’s wonderful.”
Pickler returned his compliment saying, “Having Derek as my partner is an answered prayer. Right before I left for L.A., my Grandpa Ken told me he was praying that Derek would be my partner, because he’s his favorite male dancer on the show. Now I think I will tell him to pray that we win!”
