I want to start off with the deepest sympathy for Marie Osmond and family for their tremendous loss. My heart goes out to you!
Season 14 on The Bachelor was incredible! I want to thank everyone for their huge support. I have received and read all the fan mail. Thank you for taking the time to write the very nice letters. Some of you wrote me from The Bachelorette. I have not forgetten about you. I WILL be writing everyone back. Just bear with me for a few months as my life is really crazy.
I am so honored to be one of the celebrity contestants on Dancing With The Stars! My dance experience is very basic. I've taken a couple of lessons, but that was simply so that I knew the basic country 2 and 3 step.
I never thought I would say this as a guy. My feet hurt. They put me in these low rise dance heels. Girls, I will never make fun of you again when you say your feet are sore. I get it! The studio Chelsie and I are practicing in is surrounded in mirrors. Normally this would help the dancers, but I find it very intimidating. Here I am dancing with Chelsie, who's so graceful and light on her feet and I'm clomping around. Lol...! Today, I got so embarrassed at my freestyle dancing, I had to stop and laugh at myself. I caught two of Chelsie's elbows todays. Cheek and nose. She spins with wild intensity! Its really easy to get hurt on the floor. If its not her elbow its her ponytail slapping me in the face. My reflexes have gotten very fast dodging hair.
My first dance this season will be the Viennese Waltz to Seal's Kissed by a Rose. As frustrating as learning to dance can be, this is sooooo much fun!!
Stay tuned as I will be blogging and twittering regularly!
