Derek Hough is known for fantastic choreography and an uncanny ability to take many of his Dancing With the Stars partners straight to the top. How does this dancing wonder boy do it?

"I have a wooden paddle, and it's basically like whichet," he jokes in this video promoting DWTS' repeat run on GSN.

The real key seems to be Derek's devotion to his partners. "I feel like I've been married eight times," he explains. We wonder how his actually married DWTS partners feel about that.

That devotion comes with a price, though. Apparently his most difficult partner drove him to tears every night! Now we want to know who he's talking about...

Watch Derek reflect on his DWTS experience here:
