This just in, straight from the mouths of the “DWTS” judges—ROB KARDASHIAN is better than his older sister KIM KARDASHIAN!
On the dance floor, that is.
Rob pulled himself out of his bottom three funk when he shined on the “Dancing With The Stars” dance floor during Monday’s episode. The reality star, who performed a spectacular jive dance routine with his partner Cheryl Burke, received some serious praise from “DWTS” judge Carrie Ann Inaba. She said:
“It’s official, Rob Kardashian is a better dancer than Kim Kardashian!”
Carrie Ann added:
“No disrespect to Kim. But you have the dancing gene, honey. It’s nice to see your confidence coming out.”
The other judges, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli agreed, saying that Rob was starting “to blossom” and was showing “great improvement.”
Rob is under a lot of pressure to succeed at this latest gig, especially due to the fact that his family is always in the public eye—especially his famous sisters, who are all repeatedly featured on celebrity gossip websites. So it’s really no surprise that he reportedly had a problem with nerves prior to the show’s first episode.
Although he seems to have overcome his anxiety (judging from his improved performance on Monday night), he admits that he’s still really “scared.” During rehearsal, Rob admitted:
“I’m scared as hell… The jive is pretty hard for me because I don’t feel great about myself at all. To be in front of a bunch of people knowing like I’m insecure with my weight, and I say I have man boobs jokingly, but it’s true… [Being surrounded by] all these dancers who are in great shape, it’s just hard to be around and [then] put yourself out there like that.”
Rob and Cheryl scored 21 out of 30 for their dance routine—a good four points higher than their first effort last week.
