Dancing with the Stars Apolo Anton Ohno is not Going to Let the Paso Doble Dance Intimidate him this Time
Apolo Ohno won the Mirror Ball Trophy in Season Four, dancing with Chelsie Hightower. This year, he is dancing with Karina Smirnoff. Apolo describes his last season as incredible. He had never danced before and he really doubted his ability to do well when asked to compete. Eventually, he knew the dances he needed to dance and he had a lot of fun. He always had it in his mind how great it would be to do it again, so this invitation for the All Stars was welcomed.
Apolo feels that one area which helps him in the competition is that for 15 years he wore a skin-tight racing suit in speed skating so he feels he can adapt to different outfits on the show easily. A favorite memory is hanging out with the cast and crew backstage. The experience was amazing.
Last time he danced, he was intimidated by the Paso Doble. He is more mature now and won’t let that happen again. And the last time he danced, he won. He said last time he had a great partner so he feels great chemistry and some crazy dancing will do the trick. He will be dancing with Karina Smirnoff.
