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..... Shawn Johnson:
1. Why did you want to return to do the All Stars season?
I loved learning to dance on the show in 2009, but this time I feel like I have a lot to prove and show the world. I'm a completely different person. I'm no longer 16 years old and having just come off of an attempt at a comeback in my gymnastics career, I feel like that unfinished business could translate on the dance floor. If I can't make it back onto the Olympic podium, I am determined to prove I can make it back on the dance floor.
2. What is your biggest strength in this competition?
Just experience it for what it really is as entertainment. Being older, I feel like all of the restrictions are gone, so I can finally give it everything.
3. What part of being on the show did you enjoy the most last time?
Meeting new people and taking on a new challenge. I'm a very competitive person, so stepping out of my comfort zone and pushing myself as hard as I could, I absolutely loved! Not to mention I fell in love with the dresses :)
4. What would you like to do differently this time around?
Having a fire lit in me to prove to people I can successfully make a comeback in something! Mix that with my competitive nature and that is definitely my strength.
5. What will it take for you to take home this mirror ball this time around?
Dance my heart out and win over America with my passion and determination!
