‘Dancing with the Stars’ – Real Blood, Sweat, and a Freak Out

Dancing with the Stars contestants endured some of the toughest practice sessions in the dance world to get ready for the show’s premiere. Bobby Bones is thankful for dental insurance after an elbow found its way to his mouth, not once… but twice. Yes, there was blood and a need for a trip to the dentist. And Grocery Store Joe Amabile freaked out.

Bones’ Dancing with the Stars partner, Sharna Burgess, was doing a spin when Bobby Bones describes how his face got in the way. Bones said in a recent interview about those injuries:

“There was blood and a tooth. I still don’t know what I’m doing. She [Sharna Burgess] was doing her spin thing, and she was doing what she was supposed to do, and my face was not doing what it was supposed to do.”

While his wounds are healing, Bobby Bones can’t help notice what all this dancing is doing to his body. Bones claims it is taking a physical toll with his knees and ankles. Sharna Burgess is amazed at just how good he is doing with his dancing moves.

Bobby Bones is yet another celebrity to think it looks a lot easier than it is. He realizes that dancing is tough work despite those smiles as folks glide over the floor.

Dancing with the Stars – Grocery Store Joe Amabile

Another celebrity on this new season is the Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise alum, Grocery Store Joe Amabile. He is also making some waves during practice.

From his first day on Dancing with the Stars, Joe dropped jaws. This is especially true when it came to his partner, Jenna Johnson, as he walked into the door to great her. When he was first introduced to Jenna, she “freaked out.” Jenna is a fan of the Bachelorette alum.

Jenna was elated when she learned who her partner was. Grocery Store Joe gave Jenna a warning that he has no experience on the ballroom floor. She didn’t care one bit, she was stunned that she was paired up with Grocery Store Joe for the 27th season of Dancing with the Stars.

As she freaked out Grocery Store Joe told her not to get too excited as “I don’t know how to dance.” Jenna shares now that she looks back on her freak-out moment she realized she was over-the-top with excitement. Jenna said, “I’m so embarrassed because I just fangirled so hard, and he doesn’t even know who I am.”

Soaps are an infatuation of mine and reality TV lets me be that fly on the wall when it comes to witnessing all types of behavior, as it never amazes me what people will say and do with the cameras rolling.
