After waltzing with Jake Pavelka on Tuesday night's Dancing With the Stars finale, Vienna Girardi hopes to dance her way into the hearts of the show's viewers next season.

"When Dancing with the Stars asked me to dance I was like, 'I'm so nervous!'" Girardi, 24, tells "But I watched Jake have a blast and I thought I'd try it."

Already a fan? Pavelka, 32, who was eliminated Apr. 27 and placed seventh in the competition. "Chelsie [Hightower] has been great," he tells Us. "I really enjoyed it, but dancing with my beautiful fiancee really was special."

Though ABC hasn't offered her a spot on the show yet, the newly engaged reality star is already itching to compete -- with her fiancee's approval, of course.

"We'd make the decision together, but it just seems like so much fun," Girardi says. "And for me, all the hard work I put in just this week? Seeing how it came together was well worth it -- even though I had to be here early to get my hair and makeup done!"

In the meantime, the former Bachelor and his bride-to-be are taking their time planning their upcoming nuptials.

"I got wedding shoes -- Jimmy Choos! They have crystals all over them," Girardi says. "I came home the other day and said, "I know we don't have a wedding date ... but I found the shoes!"
