They’re sad to be leaving, but the pair told E! News they plan to keep in touch. E! asked Cody whom he’d like to win the spring 2014 season, now that he's out of contention. He didn't hesitate with his answer.
"I want Amy to win, I've always wanted Amy to win," Cody said, referencing Paralympian Amy Purdy, who is dancing with Derek Hough. Witney agreed. "Yeah, she's awesome. Like what she's doing for the show, she's such an inspiration. I think it's incredible for her." Cody said he'd love Olympic ice dancer Charlie White to do well too. "That guy's becoming one of my good friends as well. He's the sweetest guy in the whole world." Charlie is paired with Sharna Burgess, who danced with Cody during Switch Up Week.
After the show, and the post-show interviews, Cody tweeted some final thoughts:
[F]irst of all I want to thank @DancingABC for the opportunity to be a part of this season. I had an incredible time. secondly I want to thank my incredible partner @WitneyCarson for her patience, persistence and class. you're a beauty mate. thirdly, I want to wish the rest of the cast good luck. made some awesome friends. @AmyPurdyGurl you're an inspiration to us all, win it! lastly, thanks to all my fans who voted. I love you all! now it's time to get back to my day job making music. big things planned.
Are you surprised that Cody didn't back his old tour buddy James Maslow for the win? Do you think Amy could win — which would, incidentally, also give Derek his sixth trophy, his third in a row?
