DWTS2013 Lindsay Arnold Not Easing Up On Victor Ortiz And More

New Dancing With The Stars cast member Victor Ortiz visited the Gary Bryan Morning Show on K-Earth Radio this morning to talk all about boxing and his new dance gig. Below is a take where Victor talks about his first two rehearsals with new pro and partner Lindsay Arnold and having the jitters. Note how Lindsay is not easing up on him…

“I’ve done two rehearsals with Lindsay, and she doesn’t ease up on me, which is good,” he says.

Though he’s used to being in front of millions of viewers in the ring, Victor said he was nervous about the DWTS announcement this week.

“This is nothing like being in front of millions of people for what I do,” he said. “It was completely different, just the announcement alone yesterday, I got so jittery, I was very nervous, Lindsay was trying to tell me to calm down a couple time, my heart was beating a hundred miles an hour.”

Despite having some pre-show jitters, Victor is confident going into this season of Dancing and is sizing up his competition with fellow celeb contenders. He says he thinks his biggest competition on the show will be Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman.
