“More than winning though, the highlight of the entire season for me was the package of Amber talking about us and our relationship, and what the show has meant to her,” Derek wrote in his TVGuide blog.
He added, “As for next season, I don’t know if I’m coming back yet. It’s too early to say. You never know what will happen. Last year at this time, I had planned to sit out Season 16, and I was this close to doing it. What’s crazy is the chain of events since then.”
The couple took home 60 total points for the Charleston and their Freestyle, plus another four points at the Samba Relay!
“I am such a cry baby now, happy tears. Thank you for the gift of dance @derekhough. Thank you guys for keeping me in every week!” Amber posted up on Twitter, thanking Derek.
She added, “Tomorrow is going to be an amazing day. Win or lose, I feel accomplished. This BIG GIRL danced her butt off on #dwts! I proved that I can do whatever I put my mind to, and opposition doesn’t make a situation impossible. I am stronger and confident! Ok rant over lol! WHAT A WHIRLWIND! I’m gonna have so much fun tomorrow! Last dance! Performing for all of you! #TeamRoughley #encoreAMBER.”
