Jenna Johnson on 'DWTS' Partner Adam Rippon: 'We Had A Lot of Work To Do'

Watch out Gus Kenworthy, Adam Rippon might have a new best friend!

The 28-year-old Olympic figure skater was seen grabbing some fuel from Starbucks while walking arm-in-arm with his Dancing With The Stars partner Jenna Johnson on Thursday (April 26) in Lost Angeles.

The pair recently opened up about working together on the upcoming all athletes season of DWTS.

“I’m so excited — I think I have the best partner on the show, [but] she definitely has her hands full because I don’t know how to dance,” Adam told ET. “I thought I was going to go in and know all the steps, [but] I don’t know any of them.”

“Stop, yes you do,” Jenna said in return. “We have a lot of work to do… We had a lot of work to do.”

As for Adam‘s background in figure skating, and dancing in clubs, it hasn’t prepared him that much.

“It can be helpful, but this is definitely a world that I don’t know anything about,” he said. “Usually it’s just me, doing my own thing, but now I’m doing it with a partner on the dance floor. My skates are taken away from me and during a dance you can’t tell a joke, so that’s also taken away from me. So many things are being taken away from me, but I’m getting so many things in return — like a new costume.”

The duo also teased what their first dance would be like.

“We said that we wanted to make this a celebration of Adam and who he is,” Jenna said. “I think you can expect a performance that screams Adam.”

“Bells, whistles, glitter,” Adam added. “We will bring drama. And then I will wear bells and whistles.”
