Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec have hung up their official Dancing With the Stars dancing shoes, but that isn't stopping the recently married couple from following along and having an opinion about the newest season!

ET's Nischelle Turner caught up with the DWTS alums at a Los Angeles benefit for the Brent Shapiro Foundation on Saturday night and asked them to dish on their early bets after week one.

While Little Women: LA star Terra Jolé got a nod of approval from Johnson, who called her performance with Sasha Farber "dynamite," it was Canadian race car driver James Hinchcliffe who surprised her the most.

"I didn't know he would be able to dance the way he did," the Australian hoofer said.

"Why, because he's Canadian?" Herjavec, who is from Canada, joked.

"He's used to sitting down," Johnson explained. "He's not used to moving like that, you know? You think athletes are always going to be agile and able to move, but not a race car driver. He was really great."

Johnson and Herjavec also had good things to say about Final Five gymnast Laurie Hernandez and her fellow U.S. Olympian, Ryan Lochte, who was the target of protests during the first show.

"That was so horrible what happened to him. We were there to witness it all and it was awful," said Johnson, who was in the ballroom at the time to co-host the online show DWTS: All Access. "But I think he did a great job. He's got some work to do with his dancing, but if he relaxes a bit more and gets into it, I think he'll be really good."

The cute couple got married eight weeks ago after being paired on season 20 of DWTS in 2015. The couple joked that in "Hollywood time" eight weeks is like eight years -- but the honeymoon phase doesn't show any signs of fading just yet.

"I think in our case, it'll go forever," Herjavec said.
