Another Twitter user excitedly gushed over the handsome judge’s outfit and tagged him in the tweet to tell him that his 80’s look was “life.” Another user agreed that they needed Hough’s 80’s jacket.

A tweet likened Hough to “Miss Bliss’s” Zack Morris and read that the user was obsessed with the look. The “Dancing With The Stars’” 80’s week was set to bring back the fun and fabulous atmosphere that seemed to come with the music and fashion of that era.

The judges and contestants did a magnificent job of bringing the era and its energy into the ballroom as the pro dancers wowed the judges and audience with their growing ballroom skills.

The DWTS 80’s week came twelve weeks after the show kicked off for its 29th season and even long after it was revealed that pro dancer Hough was joining the show.



The judge teased fans of his return to the show after he last appeared on it as a dancer in the 23rd season. At the time, the already-excited fans had no idea what role he would serve in the show, and when they finally knew, they were even more delighted.

The 35-year-old fan favorite is currently in a relationship with his beautiful dancer girlfriend, Hayley Erbert. The two were recently spotted snuggling in swimwear beside a pool in October.



Hough himself went shirtless with a pair of navy blue swimming shorts while his stunning girlfriend, Erbert, showed off her killer physique in a red two-piece swimsuit. 

Erbert’s flawless figure was just as perfect as her boyfriend’s ripped physique. They made the perfect hot couple and it was clear to see why everyone had a thing for not just Hough’s style, but the man himself.
