As sexy as they are together, not everyone is happy to see Hough performing this season. While he's certainly one of the best dancers in the competition, he previously said he'd be taking the season off in order to pursue a job on the New York Spring Spectacular. He then changed his mind and was quickly paired with the most athletic of this season's stars. Many hardcore DWTS fans feel it was unfair that he ditched Stars only to come back and nab such a stellar partner.

Can the couple take home the trophy? One of Liukin's former teammates, Carly Patterson Caldwell, seems to already think Liukin has it in the bag. In a recent interview with the Dallas Morning News, the Olympian said, "I feel like there's going to be no competition [on DWTS]. She was that type of gymnast... she has dance in her."
