Olympic ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White are just adorable — together and with their Dancing With the Stars Season 18 partners. They seem perfectly suited for this coming week's Disney theme.
They're currently pulling double duty, performing in Stars on Ice when not competing on DWTS. ABC News interviewed the skaters and their DWTS pro partners, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Sharna Burgess, at a skating rink in New Jersey. ABC had the couples face-off to figure out who really knows the Olympians best.
For example, ABC asked Charlie and Maks, what is Meryl's favorite snack when getting ready to perform? Charlie answered, "Nutri-Grain bar." Correct! When she gets excited, what is her favorite word? Charlie said she just "squeals." Maks said, "She sounds like a cartoon character." That all sounds right, but it was deemed wrong; the correct answer was just "Yay!" Maks joked that “Yay” should be counted as a squeal, saying Charlie was correct. (Look at Maks try to help someone else win!)
The final Meryl question was very cute and both guys tag-teamed the answer: "Other than dancing and skating, what is her biggest passion?" Maks instantly said, "Puppies." Charlie agreed, adding, "Buying a dog." Meryl said they know her better than she knows herself. (What she should know is to call her agent and set up a Nutri-Grain commercial, including puppies in the ad. Sales would skyrocket!)
ABC also asked questions about Charlie, but they weren't as enlightening. The first one was about what song Charlie would dance to, if he could dance to anything. Meryl guessed, "’Happy’?" Correct! Sharna said she should've known that, since they both just danced to it on Week 3 for the Most Memorable Year theme.
Watch the video to see more. The four of them are too cute to handle. Puppies and cartoon characters should just follow them around everywhere they go!
