"[The dance] had so many different emotions, you know?," Lachey said. "There was like obviously unity and then there was a bit of struggle and can we survive all this stuff. So you know, what I love about my relationship with Vanessa is that it wasn’t just a walk in the park. We were challenged, we broke up, got back together, and there were all these things we had to overcome but in the end, we overcame them and like anything that's worth fighting for, you fight for it and that to me is what the dance was representative of. It's like this is not — I mean we're bruised, you take a look at our bodies, we're bruised and battered. That dance was brutal on us all week long and it kind of represents what relationships are. It can be brutal at times, but you find a way to get through it, you find a way to make it work and get past it so to me that was what I'm most proud of with my relationship with Vanessa and that's what I'm most proud of with this dance is that what is what we wanted the dance to be about."
