How Dancing with the Stars' Bindi Irwin Met Her Boyfriend Chandler Powell
"It was incredible," Bindi Irwin says of connecting with her beau
Bindi Irwin found love right at home.
The teen conservationist met boyfriend Chandler Powell while he was in her native Australia for a professional wakeboarding competition and decided to stop by the Australia Zoo, where the Irwin family lives and works.
“She ended up giving me a tour, and we ended up staying in touch ever since,” Powell, 18, said Monday night on the Dancing with the Stars: All Access Web show.
“It was incredible,” added Bindi, 17. “I was like, ‘This guy from Florida’s okay!’ ”
“We talk every day and are together every two to three months,” she said. “Thankfully I’ve found someone who is an outdoors kind of person. We’ll go have adventures or picnic in the park.”

Dancing with the Stars airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
