A set insider from ‘Dancing with the Stars’ tells which dancers are looking the best, who’s the biggest diva and who should win an award for congeniality!

The thirteenth season of Dancing with the Stars is in full motion, with the stars and their professional dancers rehearsing as intensely as they can to blow the competition out of the water. However, as of now, an on-set insider tells us there are two stars in particular who shine the brightest on the dance floor.

Kristin Cavallari and J.R. Martinez are the best so far,” our source dishes to exclusively. “It just seems to come naturally to them.”

Kristin, 24, seems like she certainly has the build for a dance competition, while J.R., a 28-year-old former soldier, actor and spokesperson, has the drive.

However, it’s not going as smoothly for all the competitors.

David Arquette, Chaz Bono and Ricki Lake are all working the hardest, but they aren’t as strong of dancers,” our source admits.

Meanwhile, certain stars have already won the hearts of their competition — even if their moves aren’t super saucy. “David, Chaz, Hope Solo and Ron Artest are definitely people who stick out as being incredibly cool and super nice to everyone so far. I’d say they are the most genuine,” our source says.

The insider adds, “But George Clooney‘s ex, Elisabetta Canalis, needs to get out of her shell. She’s rubbing people the wrong way. Mostly it’s just how shy she is — she’s stand-offish. But hopefully, she’ll warm up to people.”

When it comes to the Dancing with the Stars cast this season, who are YOU rooting for? Sound off below!
