Does everyone remember when Brant Daugherty was on Dancing With The Stars? Because JJJ does and we LOVED that season!
We chatted with Brant, 29, about being a part of the 10th Anniversary Special, hurdles during his time on the show and just why he wanted to participate in the first place. Check it:
JJJ: What were some of your favorite moments on the show?
Brant Daugherty: The entire experience was a highlight so it’s hard to pick specific moments! But since you asked, meeting Bill Nye was surreal. I rarely get starstruck unless it involves my childhood, and I grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy. I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous to introduce myself to someone. Not many people know this, but I used to work as a Production Assistant and one of my first gigs was a movie with Christina Milian. It was my job to get coffee and keep everyone on schedule. Five years later, I got to dance alongside Christina. That was a powerful moment for me. I also loved having my family in the audience. They don’t get to visit very often and there’s nothing like having your mom cheering you on.
JJJ: Can you pick your favorite dance? Why was that one your favorite?
BD: My favorite dance was the contemporary routine that Peta and I dedicated to my father. He passed away in 2009 and it isn’t something I usually like to talk about. But that’s the thing about this show. It forces you to face yourself and your pain. Putting my story out there for everyone to see was incredibly therapeutic. Every second of that dance had so much meaning for me. I consider it one of the greatest things I’ve ever done artistically.
