(LOS ANGELES) — The seven remaining couples on Dancing with the Stars will return to the ballroom Monday night and perform a dance to a Latin-inspired hit.
Soap star Ingo Rademacher will do the rumba with his partner, Kym Johnson. He says his wife won’t be jealous if the performance gets a little steamy.
The General Hospital actor tells ABC News Radio, “I was on a soap for 18 years, and she’s used to that. And this is different because I’m not making out with Kym. We’re dancing together.”
Olympic gold-medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman will tackle the salsa, and she promises to heat up the dance floor. She says, “I really like it mild in real life, but for Dancing with the Stars I like it spicy and hot.”
“Bachelor” Sean Lowe is willing to unleash his spicy side, too, but in a different way. He jokes that he wants to win the Mirror Ball trophy so badly that he’d sleep with judge Bruno Tonioli to make it happen.
For the first time in series history, the couple who earns the highest overall score will receive immunity, meaning they will be guaranteed a spot in next week’s round. The other couples will be forced to participate in a dance-off in an attempt to boost their own score.
Dancing with the Stars airs Monday on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
