Both had a pretty successful run during their season. Koko was the runner-up that year while Kiki finished in fourth place.

But now, the couple is taking a big step in their relationship together. Keep reading to see more.

The newest DWTS pro reflects on her first season as a dancer

It’s clear to see that Koko Iwasaki fits in well with the rest of the Dancing With The Stars cast.

“There’s so many different waves of emotions that hit me and I was so excited, so grateful, so terrified and just overwhelmed,” Koko told Good Morning America during the season. “I felt ready. It’s been, I feel like, a long time coming for me as far as what I’ve wanted to do with my goals and dreams and stuff. It was really full circle for me in so many different ways.”

She competed with Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino. They were eliminated just before the semifinals. Judges agreed Vinny didn’t have a lot of natural dance ability, but Koko wouldn’t trade their partnership for the world.

“It wasn’t so much about the steps, but it was all about the mental connections I can make from his regular life and what he does already to now dancing. It’s kind of like finding a language between us,” she continued. “But it really pays off so much when you see your star be happy after they perform. There’s literally nothing like it.”

Stay tuned for the latest DWTS news and updates!
