** Perhaps one of the most well-known examples of a classic ''Dancing'' showmance is the partnership between Meryl Davis & Maks Chmerkovskiy, the eventual winners of Season 18. Everything about them indicated a romantic relationship in the making for them, to the point that, during the finale, Maks even mentioned the possibility of marrying Meryl and having kids named Boris and Oleg with her. None of it came true (Maks ''did'' eventually become a father, but it was with Peta Murgatroyd rather than Meryl), but they still seem to be good friends.

** Season 24 had two big ones in Bonner Bolton and David Ross, both of which clearly weren't the best dancers, but kept being saved by the public vote. At least a case could be made for David, a funny and likeable guy who was well aware that he wasn't up to par with the rest of the contestants but still enjoyed himself and developed a sweet partnership with his pro, Lindsay Arnold; not so much for Bonner, who was stiff, devoid of charisma, and got on the fandom's nerves quite early.

Bonner, who was stiff, devoid of charisma, and got on the fandom's nerves quite early.other hand, didn't have much of an excuse, as he remained stiff even in later weeks and never really seemed to try connecting with the audience.

** During the 10th anniversary special episode in Season 20, some of the most notable football players to do the show, including Jerry Rice, Kurt Warner, past winners Hines Ward and Donald Driver, and Jacoby Jones, performed a special Paso Doble group number with Anna (who had previously been partnered with Jerry in Season 2 and Kurt in Season 11), Karina (who was Jacoby's partner in Season 16), and, for some reason, Emma. Her inclusion in the performance is all the more interesting after her victory with Rashad Jennings in Season 24.

** Carrie Ann's insistence on taking off a point for having a lift in a dance that doesn't traditionally include lifts. Some fans see it as a necessary evil for her to balance out the judging panel, since otherwise Len is the only judge enforcing adherence to the traditional dances. Others see it as excessive and unnecessary, especially since she counts even a split second of feet off the ground (which is sometimes even ''accidental'' on the part of the dancers) as a lift and will often end up scoring a dance even lower than Len does because of it.

----* TheWoobie: As the first (and so far only) black professional dancer on the show, many fans were excited about Keo's introduction in Season 19...only for him to be immediately eliminated in week 1. As of Season 24, Keo has been the first or second eliminated in every season he's competed in (save for Season 22 with Jodie Sweetin, where he made it to week 8). Even Erin once mentioned it in a blooper from dress rehearsals: "It's the first elimination of the season, which usually means Keo's going home."

** Thanks to a bit of flirting in their first package, Sharna and Bonner got this treatment in Season 24, with many believing the people voting for their "showmance" got them farther into the competition than they would have otherwise.

** Season 24's finale gave us a whole montage of Peta's partner Nick Viall and his love for Peta's fiancee Maks, including him and Maks wearing matching "I ♥ Maks" and "I ♥ Nick" shirts.

** Val himself seems to be developing into one; between seasons 19 and 24 he's won twice and been consistently given one of the best female stars of the season. The only time he missed the finals in those seasons was with Tamar Braxton, and even that was not because of her skill level (she easily could have made the finals) but because she withdrew due to medical problems.

*** Even more feathers were ruffled after Simone Biles was eliminated in the semifinals, despite geting a ''perfect 80'' from her two dances that night, a full ten points more than the other contestant up for elimination. Unfortunately, that contestant, Cubs catcher David Ross, may well have the most fan support in the history of the program.
