But ironically, I heard that there were great expectations. When you came in, it was like, “Corbin’s not a ballroom dancer!”
I'm not. And that's the thing, is that it's funny because everybody who has all these great expectations, even for our first dance, it's contemporary. So I'm used to that style of movement, but ballroom dancing stuff that we've actually been working on is a little bit more difficult for me.
What's the hardest?
Well, so far, we've just done ... our second week is Jive. So we're working on Jive. And then we started working a little bit with Quickstep, and both are pretty difficult.
How happy are you about your partner?
I love her. She's wonderful. She is hardworking. We get along well. We have great chemistry. She listens to me as far as where she allows me to throw in ideas, and we just kind of bounce back and forth off of each other really well.
Who is your biggest competition?
This year, I really think it could be anybody's game. I mean, Christina [Milian] is big competition. Snooki's big competition. Amber's big competition.
Elizabeth Berkley, too…
Elizabeth is incredible. You have Brant, too. It's awesome [this year].
How are you guys getting along as a group?
Everybody's awesome. That's the one thing about this show also why I wanted to join it. It's not like other competition shows. At the end of the day, it's a friendly competition, and everybody's here to have fun. And this sort of environment can cause you to really get too caught up in the competition, but everybody here is so supportive. I mean, you can see when the dances are over — everybody's congratulating you. Everybody wants you to succeed, and nobody wants to see anybody go home.
Yes, everybody wants to win, but at the same time, nobody wants to watch these newfound relationships and these new connections leave. It's a Catch-22.
