Derek told Us Weekly where he thinks she should place her big trophy: “She should put it in the zoo in the middle of the croc pond! Surrounded by all the crocodiles and put it in the middle so they’ll be guarding it. So everybody can look at it from afar but the crocodiles will be all around it.”
“Honestly I’m excited to get back into my khakis and be with the animals again,” Bindi added.
The 17-year-old animal conservationist and Derek performed two dances this evening! The first (which you can watch below) had Bindi and Derek working with judge Carrie Ann Inaba to help choose the creative elements of each dance they’ve performed and re-do to a new song!

Derek Hough pulls a coat over his shirtless torso in this shot from his new feature with Ferrvor magazine.
The 30-year-old Dancing With The Stars pro opened up about being a gentleman, the current season of the show and more. Check it:
On what it means to be a gentleman: “I think to be a gentleman means to be present, to be there in the moment. I think if you’re there in the moment and you’re listening to whomever you’re with, thats a very gentleman-like quality.”
On a favorite moment this season with DWTS: “I’ve had so many amazing moments with Bindi [Irwin]. One in particular was the Dirty Dancing lift. I was a little nervous but I was so happy when we did it!”
On his muse: “Fear is a strong muse for me. Fear of complacency and things like that, push me to work harder and to improve.”
Bindi Irwin gets a little hug from partner Derek Hough as they leave the dance studio on Wednesday afternoon (November 18) in Los Angeles.
The 17-year-old conservationist spoke to reporters backstage after Monday night’s show and dished about their trio dance with Mark Ballas.
“It was so exciting. Derek comes in on [last] Tuesday, he’s like, ‘We’re going to get this steel metal box and this rope with a lightbulb,” she shared. “I don’t know how he does it because he creates things that are so beautiful and so meaningful.”
Bindi added, “For this dance, it was really just about how we’re all connected and finding that light in everyday life and it was stepping outside of that box. We all put ourselves in these bubbles.”
