First off, a big thank you to everyone who tuned into last night’s premiere episode, and another big thank you to everyone who voted for Mark and I! I have to admit, I was extremely nervous so surviving last night’s cha cha was a huge relief.

Now I’m just excited for the next one!

The funniest part is, the entire time leading up to the first show, all I could think about was how terrified I was to do this in front of a live audience.

Cameras are one thing — but a massive, screaming audience just freaked me out.

Once we got out there though I felt completely different. The energy of the audience pumps you up so it actually helped a lot! It was pretty incredible.

When Mark and I started our cha cha, it all just sort of became a blur. My mind went completely blank and luckily my body kept moving! Once we started, I really had so much fun with it!

It was a lot of hard work leading up to our big debut dance, but it was all worth it.

I’m very excited for this season! I’ve already had the best experience and I think it’s just going to get better and better. See you on the next show!

xx,
Kristin
