The duo's score of 20 was the second-highest of the night behind James Van Der Beek and Emma Slater's score of 21.

"Honestly, I don't care about the scores, but Hannah came out there feeling good and I was like, ‘This makes me happy.' I just want her to go out there feeling confident every week," Alan told us.

After competing for Colton Underwood's heart and then dating suitors on The Bachelorette, ultimately ending up engaged to Jed Wyatt before ending that relationship. Now, she's not looking for love, but working on herself—and her dance abilities.
