DWTS Season 24 Rehearsal Photos For The Finale, David Ross On Why He Did The Show And More

Check out the Chicago Sun Times when you can. They have some photos of the finalists of Dancing With The Stars Season 24 rehearsing for the Finals. They all look amazing.

Also, The Wrap talked with David Ross about his new gig as an ESPN analyst. They also talked on Dancing With The Stars and the finale…

“Every time I step on the dance floor, I feel like I am skydiving and free falling — I feel like I am going to crap my pants every time,” he revealed.

While he’s nervous about this Monday night’s glittering finale, Ross compared the anxiety to a baseball game: “Once the first batter comes out, you are in your comfort zone and forget everything else.”

That laser-sharp focus was one of the keys to the Cubs beating the Cleveland Indians to win the World Series last year. “I don’t think we ever looked up, we stayed in our cocoon of our clubhouse. We never got caught up on the outside world,” the baseball champ said of the team.

As for why sports stars seem to excel so often on “DWTS,” Ross believes it’s because they are “trained to jump into things with both feet.”

“I think athletes are trained to invest all of themselves naturally, you know you have to commit 110 percent. We have to control our work ethic and performance, as that’s all we can control,” he said.

“I did the show to try something new and get out of my box — and show my kids its OK to fail at something.”
