It is rumoured that Rocky and Gunther might get together later in the show. It is also rumoured that Gunther and Deuce will fight again (Add It Up) to conquer Rocky's heart. In lots of Shake It Up episodes (Model It Up, Break It Up, Hot Mess It Up), they are really close. Gunther also touches Rocky in many different situations. This love ship is supported by most of DeCe and Tynka shippers, and also one of the most supported ships on the show. Throughout the show, Rocky and Gunther show many signs of affection, like Gunther checking Rocky out in almost every single episode, and Rocky speaking mainly to Gunther when talking to the Hessenheffers.
