"It really is a very large intimidation factor with the big, giant, sexy guys getting these giant applauses every time they do an amazing move — and I'm trying to hit them the same way not knowing that I just don't have the same thing going on,” Roshon told People. “But I'm hanging in there. I'm proud to be who I am and I'm definitely working on it."
We hear all the time that women come in different shapes and sizes and we should be proud of our bodies, so it’s interesting, but sad, to hear from guys who struggle with the same thing. It has to be hard for a skinny 20-year-old to stand next to the likes of William Levy,Donald Driver, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and feel “manly” — especially when asked to perform mature, sensual dances.
Week 7 won’t get any easier. Ro and Chelsie have the Argentine Tango as their main dance tonight. Since the passionate, intense Argentine Tango often involves big lifts — and Ro and Chelsie are around the same size — the “wow” factor may be an issue for them. (We probably shouldn’t expect more impressive spins, ala Donald and Peta Murgatroyd.)
