After the two rocked it on the dance floor with their electric cha cha, they received their scores from judges Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Bristowe and Chigvinstev earned two 7’s and one 6 — with a total score of 20/30.
Bristowe later took to social media to react to her debut, sharing a stunning still of herself and Chigvintsev from their performance. The reality star also revealed she had been paired with Chigvinstev when she was asked to be on “DWTS” five years prior. (In 2017, Bristowe claimed “Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss prevented her from joining the dancing competition series.)
“TEAM #WillYouAcceptThisDance is here !!!” Bristowe captioned her Instagram post, below. “Dream partner. Dream dance. Dream come true.”
“Artem was supposed to be my partner 5 years ago. BUT THIS TIME IT’S FO REAL. Pinch me. #Dwts”
