Derek Hough leans back in this handsome black and white photo for W Magazine‘s “Ones to Watch” feature in the August 2015 issue.
The Dancing With the Stars pro opened up about how he got involved with the show.
“[Reality TV] just seemed absurd to me,” Derek said. he admits. “If you try to be cool, if you worry about being embarrassed, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons…You’ve gotta embrace it – and sometimes that means going for a ridiculous song.”
