The day after their dance debut on season 8 of Dancing With The Stars, Chuck Wicks and real life partner Julianne Hough hit the dance floor to prepare for their second dance…the Salsa. The couple placed fifth with the judges last Monday and hope to progress this time around.
“I am so glad it is done and over,” Chuck Wicks told Entertainment Tonight. “My first-day jitters are still around. As soon as we got our scores and got off stage, I said, ‘We’ve got to go do the salsa.’ Everybody is so great, so we have a lot of work ahead of us.”
Julianne Hough added, “Fifth out of 13 is great. If you are No. 1, you can only go down. We are toward the middle, so we can only progress.”
Despite other stars bodies falling apart on Dancing With The Stars, Chuck Wicks’ body is holding up under all the pressure and long hours of rehearsing and he told ET, “I have always been an athlete, but the first few weeks I was really sore.”
Julianne Hough joked about one bodyarea that Chuck Wicks is not so athletic saying, “He has Twiggy legs. Now they are strong and muscular.” Chuck Wicks added, “Seriously…I mean lets just not hide anything, I’ve got small legs okay!”
