4. She's a movie star. Witney actually has the lead role of Jennifer in David Winters's dance film East Side Story. The IMDb summary compares it to Dirty Dancing, Karate Kid, and High School Musical, saying it's about a young girl in Beverly Hills named Jennifer who visits her father's Panama City Beach Hotel during summer break. She falls in love with a boy named Ken, who works as a dishwasher; theyre from different backgrounds, but they share the same passion for dance. Ken is played by Chehon Wespi-Tschopp, the male winner of SYTYCD Season 9. Watch Chehon and Witney talk about the movie on set last January. Its not clear if or when the movie might be getting a wide release.
5. She was a dental assistant. Seriously! She joined SYTYCD at age 18, having recently graduated from high school, and in her show bio she said she didnt have a job, but she interned as a dental assistant at Dr. Noots office in American Fork.
6. She loves golf and guitar. In her SYTYCD bio, Witney said people might be surprised to learn that she loves to golf. You would think I would hate it because I can't sit still for more than a few minutes but it's true! My family has been playing for a while but I recently just started and discovered I enjoy it! I also started playing the guitar and drums. If you follow her Twitter or Instagram, you see she also loves her furry lover boy.
7. She got a great showcase in Corbin Bleus Jazz Trio. Last fall, Witney was part of Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoffs amazing Jazz Trio to Usher's "Yeah!" You may remember the funny scene in rehearsals when Corbin wanted to know if it was OK to put his hands on Witney's rear end. She smiled and said, "I mean, yeah, if it'll get us 10s." Corbin loved her whatever-works attitude and it did work! Re-live their rehearsals and perfect-scoring routine.
Are you excited to see Witney and Cody in action this spring? Do you think they could win?
DWTS Season 18 premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
