Dancing with the Stars contestant Lolo Jones is feeling the effects of a long, tiring, grueling schedule as she prepares for Monday’s premiere of the hit ABC show.
As a three-time Olympian, one would think that Jones would be able to tackle the hardcore dancing routines without a sweat, but according to an Instagram video posted by the 32-year-old, that’s not the case at all.
“EVERYTHING HURTS. Gotta press thru with @keo_motsepe. 4 more days till! #dwts,” she posted on the social media website with a video of herself being dragged across the floor by her dancing partner.
Jones recently revealed to The Associated Press that she isn’t the best dancer and that her prom date in high school actually left early because of her not so smooth dance skills. “I’ve been traumatized ever since,” Jones said. “This will be my chance to make up for that — in front of a whole bunch of people, too.”
It was announced last week that Jones will be partnering up with professional dancer, Keo Motsepe for the show’s 19th season. Also joining Jones as a competitor this season, Alfonso Ribeiro, Lea Thompson, actor Jonathan Bennett, NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip, UFC champion Randy Couture, comedian Tommy Chong, talk show host Tavis Smiley, fashion designer Betsey Johnson, General Hospital hottie Antonio Sabato Jr, actress Janel Parrish from Pretty Little Liars and YouTube star, Bethany Mota.
Dancing premieres September. 15. Will you be watching?
