Bindi Irwin did a really good job of keeping boyfriend Chandler Powell at bay while she rehearsed for and competed on Dancing With the Stars, but this weekend that separation came to an end. Chandler Powell flew to L.A. where he reunited with his girlfriend and learned just how hard Bindi Irwin has worked these past few weeks.
Bindi announced Chandler Powell’s arrival via her Instagram account.
“He’s here ❤️ Thank you for always making me laugh, helping me to ice my foot when it hurts, making me tea and hugging me when I’m tired. You’re amazing,” she captioned a photo of the two of them cuddling.
Bindi Irwin and pro dance partner Derek Hough have long joked that rehearsal time is off limits to everyone, so Chandler Powell was spotted sitting quietly in a corner as the two worked on their routines for this week’s DWTS competition.
“It’s like a secret agent operation. It’s been really fun but you can’t repeat anything you’ve seen in this area. This is the code of silence,” Bindi joked about keeping everything seen at rehearsals quiet.

Chandler Powell will no doubt be thrilled when he watches Bindi Irwin compete on Dancing With the Stars on Monday evening.
Fans are certainly excited about watching “Team Crikey,” as Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough call themselves, and they’ll likely enjoy catching a glimpse of Chandler Powell in the audience, too.
