Q. Why did you want to do the show?
A. I have always been a huge fan of DWTS. It has been a piece of modern day television for a long time so for me it was only become a dream and now, it has become a reality.
Q. Which dance style do you think is most "you"?
A. My best style is the Samba.
Q. What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you’re going to win?
A. Choreography. As an athlete I am very precise on every move. I am going to be very hard on myself to ensure I win.
Q. Do you have a "dancing" hero (pro dancer or other dancing star)? Are any former DWTS stars an inspiration to you?
A. By far Emmitt Smith is my favorite. He always danced with prestige techniques and learned styles that were very hard for him.
Q. Is there a particular dance/dance style that you most fear?
A. The Jive...a lot of complicated footwork. I have good foot coordination but it’s not excellent.
