We asked each of our All Stars about the upcoming season, why they chose to return, what their biggest strength is and what it will take to win the Mirror Ball trophy in Season 15! Which star says they will need a miracle? Which star missed the rhinestones and spray tans? Which star says they are a masochist? Most importantly, who's here to win and who wants to have a good time?
5 Questions With..... Melissa Rycroft:
1. Why did you want to return to do the All Stars season?
DWTS holds a special place in my heart. It's the show that put a smile back on my face at a time when I really needed it, and it definitely jump started this crazy career I've had the past few years. But mainly, it was just such a fun time in my life. Stressful...yes, but the experience as a whole was so amazing!
2. What is your biggest strength in this competition?
I'm coming in having already lost the Mirror Ball Trophy once, and I certainly don't want to do it again! I've got a determination and a drive that I think will definitely help me this time!
3. What part of being on the show did you enjoy the most last time?
I loved Monday nights. When you had on the makeup, the costume and the live music started. It was such an incredible feeling! It was such a rush! And it was amazing to see how everything just comes together come show night.
4. What would you like to do differently this time around?
Fight harder. Not that I didn't fight the first time, but considering how abruptly I entered the competition and the fact that I really just wanted to enjoy myself, I didn't realize the enormity of the competition. This time, not only will I have fun, I will have Mirror Ball Trophies in my eyes!
5. What will it take for you to take home this mirror ball this time around?
Gosh, it's going to be hard. This trophy will be well deserved - the field is full of talent, personality, fan favorites, and past winners. The winner of the All-Star season is going to be well rounded in all aspects of the competition and will definitely win some bragging rights along with the trophy!
