Julianne Hough and Chuck Wicks are still going strong -- on 'Dancing With the Stars' and in their off-camera relationship. But pairing up on the reality competition show has changed dynamics for the couple.

"We've never experienced anything like this where I have to be in charge and he has to listen to me," Hough says on a MySpace video. "We're growing, we're learning about each other in a different way."

They're also learning about each other in a different environment. The two met and fell in love while on the road together, as opening acts on the Paisley Party Tour. They say their 'Dancing' schedule is a little less conducive to courtship.

"We've had less date nights since we've started this show," says Wicks. "It makes us appreciate everything more. I've found out a whole new side of her that I completely love."

As for those who think Hough and Wicks are at an advantage because of their real-life pairing, Chucks laughs off that assumption. "I grew up on a potato farm!" he jokes, reassuring fans any dancing skills he's learned during this competition were truly from scratch.

'Dancing With the Stars' airs tonight at 8 PM ET on ABC.
