Lindsay Arnold Hit It Off 'Immediately' With DWTS Partner Jordan Fisher (Exclusive)

Lindsay Arnold Hit It Off 'Immediately' With DWTS Partner Jordan Fisher (Exclusive)

You could tell from the moment Jordan Fisher was announced as Lindsay Arnold‘s partner on Dancing With The Stars cast, that they were going to be THAT team.

You know, that team that would seem like BFFs from day one — and in truth, they kind of are.

“From day one, we hit it off immediately,” Lindsay tells JJJ. “We [instantly] were such good friends and after our first rehearsal, went out to lunch and just realized that we were going to be really close friends.”

Lindsay adds that that is exactly what makes their partnership work too: “I don’t want to say we have similar personalities, because we’re not totally similar, but we just have so much in common and that’s why we get along so well.”

And his enthusiasm? Even Lindsay can’t avoid that.

When Jordan is happy, Lindsay is “100%” happy, too.

“He has such a fun energy and it’s so infectious, that we have a blast in rehearsals — even when it’s tough.”

Tune in on Monday when Jordan and Lindsay perform on DWTS!

Lindsay Arnold & Jordan Fisher Reveal Next Two Dances For 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 25

Lindsay Arnold & Jordan Fisher Reveal Next Two Dances For 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 25

We only have a few more days until next week’s Dancing With The Stars — and it’s not just one show, it’s TWO!

Next week will be a back-to-back nights with two couples going home on Monday and Tuesday, plus two dances from each of the couples. Ahhh!

Lindsay Arnold spilled the tea with JJJ about her and partner Jordan Fisher‘s next dances.

“We have a Viennese Waltz and a Samba,” she told us exclusively. “Completely different dances, and two more styles that are extremely hard.”


Lindsay adds that the Samba is not her favorite of all the dances the show could’ve given them.

“Samba is another one that is so hard and I try to avoid with my partners, because it is difficult,” she says.

However, “I’m excited, nervous and anxious to just get started and see where we’re at with it.”

Stay tuned for the full list of songs, dances and details of next week’s shows!

Sasha Farber Opens Up About Returning to the DWTS Troupe For Season 25

Sasha Farber Opens Up About Returning to the DWTS Troupe For Season 25

We were all quite disappointed when we didn’t see or hear Sasha Farber‘s name on the pro list for Dancing With The Stars‘ season 25.

Instead, the Russian-Australian dancer returned to the troupe, and he admits that it was hard on him, as well as the producers, too.

“The show changes. They always bring different people in,” Sasha shared with ET. “And it’s always — it’s a height issue for me, too. Everyone’s pretty tall [this season], not going to lie.”

“It was one of those things where they just couldn’t really do much about it and I totally understand,” he added about the producers telling him about his status this season. “It’s a business thing. I’m still proud of the family and we’re going on tour and it’s good. It’s good to be in the ballroom.”

However, while it was a bit weird this week for Sasha, he’s still 100% thankful to be on the show.

“It was a little bit weird to be in the ballroom [this week] and not getting to compete,” he says. “The best part of [the show] is doing the creative aspect of it. Getting someone who has never danced before and transforming them into this superstar, and they become a true dancer with the knowledge that you give them…but I mean, I’m still there and I get to perform.

Sasha continues, “Once you’re in the Dancing With the Stars family, you’re in the family. And it really is a family. All the pros love each other, all the celebs become amazing friends.”

DWTS Pro Alan Bersten Can't Thank His Fans Enough For Their Support (Exclusive)

Alan Bersten chatted with JustJared.com is over the moon about his first performance — and even more about his fans!

The Dancing With the Stars pro opened up to JJJ about all the support coming his way and he could not be more grateful.

“It’s the best feeling of all, first to know that you’re a part of this amazing family that is DWTS, then to have all the support from the fans — it’s surreal,” he says.

Alan adds, “It builds a lot of pressure, actually, because I don’t want to let anyone down. I don’t want to let the fans down by choreographing a bad routine or anything. But it’s nice to have the support and the confidence from all of them too.”

He also told us that he has a ton of support from all the other dancers on the show as well.

“They are just extremely helpful,” Alan says. “If I ever need anything, they would gladly help me. We’re one big family and that feels great.”

Lindsay Arnold Feels Pressure For 'DWTS' Week 2 Because of Lack of Rehearsal Time with Jordan Fisher (Exclusive)

Lindsay Arnold Feels Pressure For 'DWTS' Week 2 Because of Lack of Rehearsal Time with Jordan Fisher (Exclusive)

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold stop by BUILD Series in New York City on Wednesday afternoon (September 20).

The Dancing With The Stars team are all over the country this week — they’ve been in New York City for the past few days, and will be back in Los Angeles tomorrow — and that’s putting a lot of pressure on their rehearsals.

“I’m already feeling the pressure for week two,” Lindsay confessed to JJJ. “Last night alone, tying for first at the top of the leaderboard with Lindsey and Mark, that puts the pressure on us. It makes us want to make sure that we don’t lose that position.”

She continues, “That means we have to put a lot of work in and this upcoming week, we have two dances, and there’s a double elimination.”

Not only that, but it’s an insanely busy week!

“On Friday, Jordan‘s filming a music video when we get back to LA,” Lindsay says. “So, it’s a pretty crazy week for us, but…he knows what it takes, I know what it takes and we’re going to do our best and do everything we can.”

We have 100% faith in Team Fish Upon a Star!

Ian Harding Has The Craziest Dance Idea For Sasha Pieterse on 'Dancing With The Stars'

Ian Harding Has The Craziest Dance Idea For Sasha Pieterse on 'Dancing With The Stars'

Ian Harding is a man with ideas…especially when it comes to dance styles for Sasha Pieterse on Dancing With the Stars.

Speaking with TooFab recently, the former Pretty Little Liars actor dished that while he’s never ever seen Sasha actually dance before, she’d make a great hip-hop dancer.

“It’s a side of her that we haven’t really seen,” he says. “I’ve never really seen her dance in public, so I think that can be a good showing of her talent.”

Ian adds, “There’s something so classic about her. I feel like she could really rock it in like a classical sort of jazz or ballroom, but I bet hip-hop could be something that she could excel at.”

Sasha, of course, had the perfect reaction to Ian’s idea: “Really?!”

“I mean listen, I’ve known him for a long time and I don’t think he’s ever seen me do that before, but I mean thank you. That makes me really nervous,” she added.

Lindsay Arnold Dishes On DWTS25 Premiere With Jordan Fisher: 'The Tango Wasn't Easy For Us' (Exclusive)

If you’re wondering, Lindsay Arnold is still alive and well after last night’s magical performance with partner Jordan Fisher on Dancing With The Stars.

“It was so much fun. He did such a good job,” the pro dancer told us in an exclusive interview today.

But while it was fun and amazing and everything she could’ve possibly dreamed of, Lindsay knows that there’s hard work ahead.

“It was incredible and I’m so proud of him, but it does put a the pressure on to make sure that we keep raising the bar. If you start high, you have to keep going up from there, you can’t go down,” she shared. “We really, really, really want to make sure that we impress every single week because we also recognize that this show is more than just who the best dancer is.”

“We want to prove that he’s not just going to give good dances, but he’s also really in this and he loves this, and he wants America to get to know who he is as a person.”

Lindsay also spoke with JJJ about all the nerves she personally had and taking on the tango for their first dance.
