In his podcast, an almost live version of his radio show, but from his house called The BobbyCast, Bones opened up about the "true untold story" of how he won Dancing With The Stars. In the episode, he reveals some really big details that a lot of his fans have been dying to have answers on.
One of the big reveals... he never dated his dance partner Sharna. He said that the two of them had a conversation before the competition started and agreed not to date at any point. Bones did have some close relationships though while on the show with the other stars. One of the stars he became closest to was "Grocery Store Joe" from The Bachelorette. But his biggest starstruck moment came with star and participant in the season, Mary Lou Retton.
Bones dished on his crazy rehearsing schedule sharing that he and Burgess rehearsed a total of 600 hours - without one day off. Despite the chaotic schedule, Bones encouraged any celebrity that's considering doing the show to do it, even if you don't have any dance experience because you won't need it. Further stating that "your people are a huge part of it."
Set aside the chaos of the show, Bones also shared his secret to winning the show. He said he knew that he could only get 8's per his dancing ability, but quickly realized there was no ceiling on the fan vote. Which is why the votes became worth more than the judges' scores for Bones.
