While Ren and Bersten didn't end up taking home the Mirrorball trophy, they did form a close bond during their time on the show that seems like it may continue even after the cameras stop rolling.
Both stars got sentimental on Instagram, sharing sweet messages about dancing their last routine together during Monday's finale, which was a freestyle number accompanied by a live performance from Avril Lavigne, singing her new song, "Head Above Water."
Bersten shared a snapshot from their last dance, showing both stars standing close to one another on top of a huge rock that served as the main set piece for their breathtaking freestyle.
"To say I’m proud of you is an understatement! @alexisren you are amazing! I’m so lucky for this whole experience! Thank you everyone," Bersten captioned the pic, along side a heart emoji.
Bersten admitted that he felt the same way, explaining, "Honestly, this whole experience, I’ve told her so many times, I don’t care if we win the Mirrorball because we’re out here doing something that we love and it’s so much fun."
"And to do it with Alexis has been incredible,” Bersten added. "So I’m just so thankful for this whole journey."
