Tony Dovolani and Betsey Johnson are set to be one of the craziest couples to watch on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, premiering Sept. 15. HollywoodLife.com chatted with the DWTS pro about what he’s most excited for — besides hopefully winning the mirror ball trophy!
‘DWTS’ Season 19 Celebrities Revealed: Betsey Johnson Partnered With Tony Dovolani
“You do get scared every single time because you want to prepare yourself and you are preparing for the unknown,” Tony told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, just days before he found out he’d be partnered with Betsey, arguably the most unpredictable contestant of the upcoming season.
“[It’s] inevitable, you will get whomever they decide and you have to make the best of every situation, and that is the attitude I have to take every single season,” Tony said, adding that always wonders will his partner be fun to work with or if they’ll be tons of hard work. (We bet Betsey will be a bit of both!)
Tony is definitely not worried about his partners’ age impacting his chance to have a good time. And he shouldn’t be — the famed fashion designer is infamous for cartwheeling down the runway so who knows what she’ll bring to the dance floor!
“It is important to show people that might be older that dancing can lead to an incredible and a healthy life, and that is something I find very exciting!”
Tony Dovolani: ‘I Like When Someone Brings Something Different To The Table’
Who knows if Tony and Betsey will win, but the pro doesn’t seem too concerned with that, as long as he’s having fun.
“I have been fortunate enough to be paired with many different personalities and every time it has been interesting to me because if I get the same thing over and over it is not really fun,” Tony told HollywoodLife.com.
“I like something different and I like when someone brings something different to the table.”
In that case, it sounds like Betsey will be the perfect partner!
