In their video package, NeNe emphasized that she wants to show off her personality. She noted that she's never taken a dance class, but she has soul. She said she's in Tony's house, and wants to get it right and make him happy.
She hit the floor in a white number that showed a lot of skin (in a good way: she looked hot!). She showed off that personality for sure, and actually had some moves. Does she need to work on being sharper? For sure. But for a non-dancer in Week 1, this was a really good start. A lot of fun.
Len told her it was the way to get the party started, and said it was a great start. Bruno called her his kind of girl and said she has a lot more to give, but told her to be tighter on the footwork. NeNe almost cried from happiness. Carrie Ann told her she has a larger than life personality, but that she needs to dance even bigger.
Score: 21/30. Good start!
