Since the cast was announced last week, Terra and Sasha have become inseparable. Although sometimes they’re goofing around, it’s clear the couple is hard at work too.

The cute blonde, 36, might be known as a reality star, but she’s also a veteran performer. Not only is Terra a pop star impressionist — hey, Mini Gaga! — she also went on tour with Miley Cyrus, so ballroom dancing should be a piece of cake.

Unlike the athletes — who only end up on camera for the rare times they’re competing — Terra has lived in front of a camera for years. She knows how to keep people entertained, which can easily turn into votes.

Terra gave birth to her second child in August and new moms tend to kill it on DWTS — just ask last season’s runner-up, Ginger Zee. It’s impossible not to root for a lady dancing up a storm just a month after having a baby.
