What would be the best and he did great. They did fan fast particular. Really happy. You said he wasn't holding you as tight. Yes. All I know writ now is dancing is Derek and we have a really close connection. He knows where I need stability and then mark is much more, lick he's kind of continually moving and just more relaxed in his hold so right off the bat like I was like. I need you. I would hold him close I would hold him close to me. I feel like I'm the guy here because I want that stability but. Were you driving ballot. We met in the middle and that was great and the dance challenged me to really work on my own a little bit there. But I love dancing with mark. We had so much fun. It was great. It was fantastic. It was great. They went Val and max mix them up and you and mark are super tight buddies. Folk news on that. The most likable guy in the world. Really in tune. What else besides the dancing have you guys and I'm not going there but as friends, have you connected. Yes. We get to have a lot of great conversations together but not just that. It's like this growth process. Our week are full of challenges and then over coming those challenges together so Derek has just been incredible. He's so, he's so inspiring.

What is this week the dance. A wallets. Even though you think it would be. Box steps. The neck is weird. Even though you think it's a really easy. I came in it thinking it's a wallets I can did a wallet] That's going to be easy but the slower the dance the more control and Bali need and so I'm actually like holding myself even more tighter like tense but then trying to be Rae lacked at the same time. When we hit the little road block I like to give a little set back and put pressure on ourselves and whatever we do and you know one thing I always tell her to bring us back home is every step you take is successful. Every move that we make and so to enjoy it and not put as much pressure on ourselves that it has to be a certain way. Enjoy the whole experience. Yes. He's so amazing. He's incredible.
