Week - Hopes - Nick
Last week I had some high hopes for my routine with Nick.
I gave him a really fun, funny routine, and he really went for it. There were some mistakes, but he didn’t hold anything back, so I was hoping for at least one 8. But three 7s is good. We’re getting higher and higher scores, and that improvement means I’m doing my job right.
DWTS - Job - Lot - Fact - Maks
And working on DWTS is not an easy job. A lot was made of the fact that Maks missed last week’s show, and I have to say I think very few people know how crazy this show really gets — not only physically on your body but mentally as well.
We care about our partners and that’s what makes it so hard sometime because you care and love each other and you want them to do so well. You invest so much time-wise and you just want them to be the best and get the best results possible at the end of the day on the Monday night. But it is difficult to deal with life, stresses, rehearsals and then show time and everything that goes along with that. This show is extremely stressful, but at the end of the day when you get those scores and your partner did well — like Vanessa has been doing week after week — then it’s all worth it. It does get difficult some times, though.
