During the broadcast, the couple talked about the latest season of "Dancing with the Stars" and its new rules.

Artem said, "When I did Strictly Come Dancing in the U.K. for four years, that's how they do it. I feel like I'm a little bit biased on this one.

"Because I love the people to be involved ... but I also feel that the judges are the experts, so having that option is good, too. We'll see how it goes."

It was after that when Nikki threw a jab at her boyfriend. Referencing the new voting format, she said:

"I like it. I think we would have lasted longer if we had that option. I think Carrie Ann [Inaba] totally would have saved us. And not because you guys dated... but she really liked my technique!"

Artem just put a paper up to his face. "Speaking of the hot seat, today," he said.
