Hines Ward and Kym Johnson have been the consistent top-scoring couple to beat this season on Dancing with the Stars. The Pittsburgh Steeler took time off from rehearsals to discuss his competition in Kirstie Alley and Ralph Macchio. He also discussed how he feels about coach and partner Kym.
Hines told the Los Angeles Times that he felt bad for Kirstie Alley when she lost her shoe, but he doesn’t get nervous about those mishaps. “The first thing that goes through my mind is I hope Kirstie is OK. The second thing that goes through my mind is I am glad nothing like that has ever happened to me. But those types of things really don’t make me all that nervous. I think because the female celebs probably have to wear more accessories, they are more at risk for wardrobe malfunctions and things like that. I mean I give a lot of credit to the girls having to dance in high heels and with all the fancy costumes. I don’t see how they do it sometimes. All us guys have to do is put on a pair of pants and shirt, maybe a jacket at times, and we are good to go.”
Last week, Hines said that he wanted to score better on his rumba than Ralph Macchio did. However, he joked about a secret weapon that Ralph has. “My guess is that “The Crane” may be his secret weapon and we may see it at some point during the competition. I would love to see it myself.”
As for how he is getting along with Kym, Hines claims he owes everything to her. “I attribute my ability to do so all to Kym. She’s a great coach. All week long, she kept telling me how the paso was a dance of intense emotion and how I had to put passion, feeling and emotion into my routine. I just put my game face on and tried to hold it throughout the routine.”
