Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk, who both vied for Emily Maynard's heart in the most recent season of The Bachelorette, were spotted together at Monday's Dancing with the Stars premiere.
The pair sat side by side for the big show and snapped photos after with all-star contestants and pro dancers, including Kirstie Alley and Kym Johnson.
Arie, who lost out to Jef in the finale, told PEOPLE at the post-premiere party at Mixology 101 at The Grove that he came into town to support fellow racecar driver and defending Dancing champ Hélio Castroneves.
He also said there are no hard feelings between the two guys, who've been in touch since the show wrapped and have a healthy respect and understanding for each other.
"They were all laughs and smiles at the party," an observer says. "They chatted with people like Karina Smirnoff and Kym Johnson, but they really remained side-by-side most of the night, sipping beverages and seeming to have a good time. They were two of the last people to stay at the event."
And Jef said that things with Emily are great and they're looking forward to tying the knot!
