After the show, Mark spoke to E! about their early drama. “We had a rough start in the beginning, it happens,” he said. “We both needed time to cool off. The week before was a little rough.”
Mark also assured E! that they’ve completely moved on from the fight, and despite their last-place spot on the leaderboard (after getting the lowest score of the night: 22.5), things are looking up. Backstage, at least.
“We got over it and it went on beautifully,” Mark added. “We were extra motivated losing a day … we’ve been getting along great. Our last season we didn’t have a fight, we didn’t have anything, so this is our first time.”
And there’s a first time for everything on DWTS, from flying contestants to Maksim Chmerkovskiy in a Mick Jagger wig. Hopefully Mark and Bristol’s fans were voting!
