Derek spoke to some female friends as he walked to his trailer ahead of rehearsals.
Hough is currently paired up with Shawn Johnson on the All-Stars version of the series. He’s vowed to help bring out Shawn’s sexy side on the show.
“My goal when I first got Shawn as a partner was to take her from a young girl, sweet and innocent, to a mature woman – sexy,” Hough, 27, told reporters backstage after their performance. “And to get those comments from the judges … made me feel great.”
As for Johnson, 20 – who says she “felt good” completing the hot number – she explains to People why she kept things conservative on the show up until now.
“The first time around, being 17 and being younger, I was shy to everything that didn’t have to do with gymnastics,” she says. “I was like, ‘There’s no way you can get me to [dress sexy].’ [Derek]‘s been trying to get this out of me since the season started.”
Hough says his partner’s costumes will get sexier as soon as “next week.” Johnson’s response? “Bring it on!”
