DWTS Pro Keo Motsepe Could Have Been A Soccer Player Instead

DWTS Pro Keo Motsepe Could Have Been A Soccer Player Instead

No lies — Keo Motsepe is one of our favorite pros on Dancing With the Stars, and there’s good reason.

The 26-year-old South African born pro dancer made the jump from Strictly Come Dancing South Africa to the hit ABC show in 2014, completely skipping being part of the troupe!

“This season has been incredible and I couldn’t ask for a better partner in Jodie [Sweetin],” Keo shared with us. “Her dedication and commitment to this process is what inspires me to create our dances week after week.”

JJJ caught up with Keo recently and he dished 10 Fun Facts about himself that his fans might not know.

  • 2. I wanted to be a professional soccer player
  • 3. I’m afraid of heights
