Derek Hough double fists it with two large cups while heading to the dance studio in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (September 21).
The 31-year-old pro dancer revealed in his TVGuide blog that he feels like a hypocrite after his foxtrot with Marilu Henner earlier this week on Dancing With The Stars.
“One of my pet peeves is when people don’t do anything at the beginning of the routine to kill time, and I kind of did that with the red cloth,” he revealed. “I was like, ‘Ugh, what am I doing?!’ I was doing everything that I hate! Such a hypocrite! But it was impossible to foxtrot to the flute portion of the song. It’s OK. We got through it!”
Derek added later about Jake T. Austin‘s elimination, “I was a bit surprised Jake was eliminated. But after thinking about it, it’s all about connecting to the audience. It’s not just about the scores. Your votes are so important and we all are truly grateful you guys take the time out to vote for us.

Derek Hough arrives at the dance studio for practice on Friday afternoon (September 16).
The 31-year-old pro dancer met up with partner Marilu Henner to perfect their foxtrot for next week’s Dancing With the Stars.
“I really admire Ryan [Lochte] putting himself out there like that on the show. That’s not easy. The easy thing to do would be to go into hiding, but he’s owning up to his mistakes publicly,” Derek shared in his TVGuide blog. “He can’t undo what he did in Rio. The damage, so to speak, is already done. All he can do now is admit to his wrongdoing, which he has, and move forward and show that he’s learned his lesson.”
He added, “I’ll be honest — I had my opinion about it and I was like, ‘That was stupid and dumb.’ But when you see someone do good and make up for it, I’m not gonna sit here and dwell on it. People are reacting like he killed someone. I think we think Olympians are superhuman and incapable of making mistakes. They’re athletes, but they’re still human like you and me. Let him learn from his mistakes. I believe some people find significance in doing good and others find significance in tearing people down, and I am definitely not for the latter. We should all be striving to do good things and to be good to one another.”
