(Ian and Cheryl's farewell video)
Ian Ziering: When I walked in the door and I saw Cheryl, I was just blown away.
Cheryl Burke: When I first met Ian, I was surprised by his determination. He wanted to win this competition from day one.
Ian Ziering: I'm gonna explode! I'm putting a lot of effort in this.
Cheryl Burke: It's been a long journey for Ian and I. We've taken criticism from the judges, we've had our highs and lows. Now it's finally coming together and I don't want it to end.
Ian Ziering: The most exciting part of this for me was being able to dance in front of my dad. I think I impressed him a little bit, I think he's proud of his son. Cheryl's been great. She's beautiful, she's charming, she's an amazing dancer, she's a winner - that's the bottom line.
Cheryl Burke: I really do feel lucky. Ian is a great partner and I know he'll be a friend for life.
Ian Ziering: I've had an incredible time on this show. You know what? I've accomplished my goal. I've learned how to dance.
