For a fun photo gallery, see ABC7. Don’t miss the People interviews here. They may post more later, so keep checking back. I love these quotes by Sharna and Bonner….

“Oh gosh,” she told reporters. “I am a professional. Look, we have a lot of chemistry and we have a lot of fun, but first and foremost we are trying to do a really great job in this competition. I want Bonner to be around until the end and I want to take this man to the finale. That is our priority. Everyone is making a lot of our really obvious chemistry.”

“I’ll be the first to say that she is as 100 percent a professional as she is beautiful,” echoed Bonner, who previously told PEOPLE it was adoration at first sight for him. “She’s a great teacher. She’s pushing me hard I’m working hard. I just want to make her proud.”

FOX411 also talked with some of the couples after the show which you can Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 24, WEEK ONE – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Here we go again. Only this time subjected to new levels of BS I’m sure.  With contributions from Maks, who supposedly was all “what about Nicole and Derek!” in response to criticism about Heather. :::rolls eyes::: If he really said that, his stupid is showing. I can’t believe an actual dance pro would have to read Courtney’s article on Heather to GET IT, but clearly he does.

Anyway, I gotta go open the wine.

Of course the first three pros we see are Val, Gleb and Maks cuz the women don’t mean jack. Gee, Heather can really dance. What a shock. Not.

Already sick of seeing Val. He was all over that dance.

Normani seems sweet. What is on Val’s head? Read more..

Bonner Bolton Talks On Dancing With The Stars Before The Premiere

ABC in Texas chatted with Bonner Bolton about Dancing With The Stars. Hear what he says about the challenges he has after his bull riding accident, his goals, how he hopes to inspire others and more HERE or at the link below.

ETA: You can also read a fun interview at The Wrap. Here’s a take….

We’ve seen professional athletes excel on “Dancing With the Stars” many times. How are your bull-riding skills going to help you on the show?
I’ve danced growing up in the dance halls, but that’s a whole other animal than ballroom dancing. You have to have all this proper technique and structure for your step. But there are a lot of parallels between bull riding and ballroom: You’ve got to have rhythm, timing, balance, coordination, be liquid in your hips and light on your toes… It takes a lot of athleticism. I think a lot of the same things that make a good dancer are needed to be a bull rider.

Do you care that people are underestimating you in favor of more famous contestants like Simone Biles, Nancy Kerrigan and David Ross?
It is an advantage that I am coming in as dark horse, as a lot of people are still learning about my story and the sport because they aren’t aware of what that entails. It is somewhat of a double-edged sword, but hopefully I can bring some positive awareness to the sport. “DWTS” is about to acquire some hardcore PBR fans, it’s an extreme sport so their fans are going to be extreme.
