1. Why do you want to be on Dancing with the Stars?
I welcome new experiences in life. I always have, it's what keeps life interesting and fun. The challenge is that I've never been able to dance and I'm usually the one hiding on the dance floor. I am definitely facing my fears by giving it a shot in front of so many people.
2. Which dance style do you think is most "you?"
Paso Doble as it is intense, serious and filled with passion. That's my playing style on the soccer field.
3. What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you're going to win?
The fear of embarrassment, because I know I have no rhythm, so being able to remain focused while the world is watching will be key.
4. Do you have a "Dancing" hero (For example a pro dancer or other Dancing Star?)/ Are any former DWTS stars an inspiration to you?
I thought Kelly Osborne became an unbelievable dancer with her time on the show. Her inner outer confidence grew and she was just a beautiful dancer and person alike.
5. Is there a particular dance/dance style that you most fear?
Anything too girly and dainty, or any freestyle dance where I'm all on my own.
