Witney Carson, Mark Ballas & Sharna Burgess Open Up About So-Called DWTS 'Rivalries'

Witney Carson, Sharna Burgess and Mark Ballas are insisting that there is no rivalry between the pros on Dancing With The Stars.

Speaking with US Weekly, the three pro dancers, along with Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, opened up about those rumors that some of the pros don’t like each other.

“It’s intense for the show. But in reality, we are good friends. It’s not like, ‘I have to beat Mark Ballas!’” Peta says.

Sharna adds, “To be honest, I think the fans fight more than we do! The stories about bad blood and confrontation get blown out of proportion.”

“If you start thinking, ‘I have to beat this one,’ you’ve got a major problem,” Mark shares about it all. “This is about your partner.”

While there are no real rivalries, the pros are still rooting for their partners above everything else and yes, there are some that are really competitive — like Witney.

“At the beginning of the season we’re all so excited. Then, when it starts getting serious, I shut my door because I don’t want anybody to see my routine!” she confesses. “I am super-competitive.”

Dancing With The Stars returns on Monday, September 18th on ABC.
