The couple shared that their romantic journey commenced after their DWTS competition had concluded. Durant, known for his competitiveness, focused on winning the competition initially, "delaying the realisation" of their deeper connection until they were eliminated in the semifinals.

Stewart shared that she learnt American Sign Language (ASL) as soon as she discovered Durant would be her partner which became a pivotal factor in their connection. Their connection deepened during a jazz routine performed to Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence."The dance, featuring a portion performed without music, offered audiences a glimpse into Durant's experiences as a deaf artist and marked an important moment when their lives intertwined.
