Dancing With the Stars 2014: Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas’s Week 1 Contemporary (VIDEO)

D.J. Tanner is in the house! On the Dancing With the Stars Season 18 premiere Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas tackled Contemporary.

"I love to dance," Candace explained in her opening package. She also loves the show. Candace told Mark she's not going to be his "sexy girl." She wants to look good and be beautiful, but in a modest way. After all, she's a mom. She noted that while she's sweet and compassionate, she's also competitive. "Excuses are for losers."

Their routine is good. Candace did manage to look great but modest, and her movements were strong, especially for a non-dancer. She's in this thing to win this thing.

"You can dance, well done!" said Len. Bruno called it dramatic, and told her she used the floor really well, which is totally true. "You are such an incredible dancer!" said Carrie Ann. "Like, I want to work with you. That was so amazing. I want to see it again!"

Score: 25/30.

Catch the next episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 18 on Monday, March 24, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
