Dancing With the Stars pro Allison Holker, who finished in second place with her partner, Riker Lynch, shares some inside scoop with Life & Style readers about last night’s season 20 finale!

This season was a dream come true! Dancing with [celebrity partner] Riker Lynch was something unforgettable. He had a spark; the talent and determination to make it to the end. He came out every week with confidence and showed America a new side of him.

We had some stand-out moments that I will never forget, from our first jive to our sexy salsa and our Pirates of the Caribbean-themed paso doble!

Riker is a force to be reckoned with and his career is only just beginning. I am blessed to have gotten to know him, but I am also excited to see what his future has in store for him.

I feel honored to be a part of a show that continues to get better with every season. This was Dancing with the Stars’ 10th anniversary; 20 seasons in and the show continues to inspire.

I would like to say a special thank you first to Riker, the producers, the judges, the amazing costume department, hair and makeup and our incredible crew. I’m impressed with all the work you do.

I hope to come back even stronger for next season. Let’s make history!!
