At the end of February, we met our partners and I was thrilled when I found I’d be partnered with Chelsea Kane. She works really hard, is full of energy, has a sense of rhythm and is absolutely lovely. Chelsea’s been so much fun to spend time with — it’s impossible to be in a bad mood around her! We get along great, although, I do annoy her by constantly sending her photos of this DJ I’ve become obsessed with, Deadmau5. He wears gigantic neon mouse heads, which I find hilarious.
When Chelsea found out I was shooting a music video for Hotwire a few weeks ago, she offered to be in it. We had a blast filming especially since Chels just goes with the flow. The video will be released in a few weeks and I’m super excited about it.
Back to dancing — I’m looking forward to wowing the judges and the fans this season with her — I think we make a great team.The Foxtrot is our first dance and we’ve been working to perfect it these past two weeks.
I haven’t spent a lot of time around the other couples yet, but as soon as the show starts, we’ll be hanging out a lot. Some of the teams that I think will do well this season are Hines and Kym (the footballers always do well), Chris and Cheryl (the only other multi-champ on the show), Romeo and Chelsie (he can move and has to avenge his father), and Petra and Dmitry (welcome back D!).
Here’s what I’m aiming for this season: having fun, entertaining everyone, and making a run at my third Mirrorball Trophy.
