"To everyone who is told, 'No,' I just want to say it doesn't matter where you're coming from -- because we came from the lowest spot -- it's always where you're looking and where you're going," Bobby said during a Tuesday appearance on Good Morning America with the other Dancing with the Stars finalists.
"I had the best coach and the best teammate who figured out how to teach me, and I think that's a testament to her, because I was Gumby!" Bobby joked.
"I didn't know what I was doing at all. But [Sharna] taught me and we are here because of that, and I'm very grateful. Thank you to everyone."

Sharna, however, refused to take all the credit for Bobby's success on the ABC reality dancing competition.
"I don't know if I cracked any code, honestly. I just think it was a winning combination of Bobby and I being together and it being about something else this season for us. It wasn't about trying to be the best dancer out there; it was about trying to be the best us," Sharna explained.
"We knew we were in our own competition, and like Bobby said, it was week to week and practice to practice -- are we getting better and what more can we do? I really love that Bobby lives up to that 'fail until you don't.' That was really our message the whole season. And then, we did not fail!"
Also during his appearance on GMA, Bobby made it known he'd love to become The Bachelor star one day. But until then, he's going to serve as a season-long advisor and mentor on the upcoming 2019 season of American Idol.
