It’s a big compliment to be called sexy in front of millions of people. But when it’s qualified by “3,000 times more sexy” than you were a few years ago, it might make you wonder if that’s a rave about you now or a diss about you then.

Dancing With the Stars All-Stars celeb Apolo Anton Ohno isn’t letting judge Carrie Ann Inaba’s premiere night comment go to his ego, joking to On the Red Carpet that if he’s that much sexier now, "I must've been pretty hideous" back on DWTS Season 4.

"How can I get any sexier?" he joked to Zap2it. "I just want to know how sexy I was before. I must not have been very sexy. 'Apolo, you were like that weird white stuff that accumulates on the side of your mouth. And now you're like Mentos, it's fantastic!' I feel fresh. I feel minty fresh, it's amazing." Mentos! (New endorsement idea?)

In other judging news, Apolo sounded happy about Len Goodman giving them a “bronze” for their Cha-Cha-Cha, although they eventually tied for fourth, not third. Apolo was fine with that. His pro partner Karina Smirnoff would like to go back to the idea of being third. But Apolo has the best work ethic, she told OTRC, and that — along with his natural performance power — will take him to the Season 15 finals for his second Mirror Ball trophy.

That and his sex appeal. Who knows, by Week 10, he might be 4,000 times sexier than before!

Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars Results Show airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
