Apolo Ohno: Expect Hilarious Outfits and a Big Afro in “Guilty” DWTS All-Stars Samba
They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but it may also make you sillier.
Pro dancer Karina Smirnoff slipped on Dancing With the StarsAll-Stars Week 4, but Apolo Ohno thinks it might actually be the best thing to happen to them, since it brought the teammates closer together. Tonight is the first part of Guilty Pleasures Week 5 — and, according to @DWTSGossip, Apolo and Karina’s Team “Call Me Maybe” will be performing their team Freestyle dances. So it sounds like tomorrow, on Night 2, Apolo and Karina will get crazy with their “guilty” individual dance, a Samba to Rick James’ “Give It to Me Baby.”
Apolo described his guilty pleasure song as “awesome American funk.” “There are hilarious, ridiculous outfits,” he wrote in his People.com blog. “I'm wearing a silk, leopard print shirt with white pants and white shoes. It's very funky and old school. I'm trying to figure out how to do a big afro, but obviously my hair does not work that way, so we're going to play with it.” (Soul patch, meet afro!)
Apolo noted that the Samba is the dance he got his first perfect score on, back on his winning Season 4, Week 5. He and Karina would like some score redemption for last week, when they were third from the bottom, but mostly, Apolo wrote, “I just want to have fun, play the theatrical role, play the moment and just really go out there and live it.”
He’s gonna give it to us, baby! Are you rooting for Apolo to score another perfect Samba?
