Noah Galloway's live marriage proposal on Monday's Dancing with the Stars may have surprised America – and most of the other semi-finalists – but one of his fellow contestants already knew it was coming.

"I actually knew it was going to happen beforehand," Riker Lynch told reporters backstage after the show. "I was so excited."

Galloway, 33, had told Lynch his plans after dress rehearsals, and the musician was worried he would ruin the surprise.

Will Chris Soules Watch The Bachelorette?

Chris Soules may have found love on The Bachelor, but that doesn't mean he's eager to watch two of his former potential brides search for their Prince Charming on the upcoming season of The Bachelorette.

"Honestly, right now I'm okay with that part of my life being behind me," Soules, 33, said at the Dancing with the Stars 10th Anniversary Party hosted by PEOPLE.

But his ties to the new Bachelorettes, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, may prove too enticing for Soules to stay away from his TV.

DWTS's Len Goodman: I Got It Right Monday (Even Though the Audience Booed!)

Originally posted 04/07/2015 01:20AM

If you think Len Goodman's comments had a particularly harsh "get off my lawn" quality to them on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, it's because something's been eating at the show's elder statesman.

Years of watching old-school dances like the waltz get watered down by young and hip pros have taken a toll on the judge, who's about to turn 71 later this month.

"The show is becoming performance-driven. It's all about the performance," Goodman told PEOPLE exclusively after the show. "For me, that's not what ballroom dancing is about. The waltz, next to the Viennese waltz, is the oldest dance of all. There is a tradition. When you think of the waltz, you think of elegance, sophistication, fluidity of movement. Sometimes I look at a dance and I have to check what dance it is, because it doesn't look like what I think it should be."

Charlotte McKinney didn't seem too surprised to learn that she was the second dancer to leave Dancing with the Stars on Monday – but she seemed to indicate that her struggles with dyslexia could have been at the root of her poor performance.

In the rehearsal clips from Monday's episode, McKinney can be seen struggling to learn the dance steps from her partner Keo Motsepe. "This stuff with the left instead of the right really throws me off," she said.

An interesting development occurred before everyone laced up their Danskins on Monday's Dancing with the Stars – Noah Galloway was fixing to dance with a prosthetic arm!

The Alabama native picked up a space-age prosthetic limb that "works through sensors in the sockets that touch what's remaining of my tricep and bicep," he told PEOPLE. Ultimately, the motivational speaker-cum-Kenneth Cole cologne pitch man left the prosthetic at home since the Argentine tango was no dance to try out a fancy new artificial limb.

After wrapping up his suggestive dance with Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd on Monday night's episode of Dancing with the Stars, Tommy Chong capped things off with a suggestive remark to the judges – which had the audience roaring with laughter but left Burgess and Murgatroyd looking mortified.

What was he thinking?!

PEOPLE caught up with the Cheech & Chong star, 76, backstage after the show to ask him just that. And it turns out he's been reining himself in this whole season – acting out in rehearsals but holding back on the show in the interest of decorum.
