Megan was on hand to cheer her boyfriend Wes as he made his debut on the ice on Sunday night. The blonde model tried to keep her composure, even after judge Christopher Dean called Wes and Vanessa a "beautiful couple". "If you could choose two people on the ice this would be it," said the skating judge. Voiceover Sam Matterface also noted that Wes and Vanessa looked "perfect together," but joked that Megan needn't worry.
