Jodie Sweetin is maintaining a strong and steady pace on Dancing with the Stars this season, and that’s exactly how she likes it. Sweetin, who is dancing with Keo Motsepe, experienced a few ups and downs during this season, but she says all of it has been worth it for the live performances.
In her blog for People, Sweetin said, “Last week was definitely not an easy week. Not only did we have one of the most difficult dances I could ever imagine, but I also was really shaken by my injury.” She continued her blog admitting, “I could not have happier with how things went during the live show. It was really worth all the pain when I watched our dance back and saw how much the audience responded to it.”
The actress suffered a bad bone bruise during the competition, but it luckily hasn’t hindered her much at all. In fact, her slow and steady climb toward the front of the pack is exactly what she wants from her journey on the show.
She wrote, “I’m glad we didn’t peak early on in the competition because I think we are showing America that we are working hard and getting better every dance.”
Her strategy seems to be working. And it’s worked for people in the past. Many times, if a star does super well in the beginning, the judges expect more out of them and they eventually fail to meet their standards. By building slowly, Sweetin will make sure that she is always surprising the audience and exceeding the judges’ expectations.
And it also helps that she’s not calling herself a frontrunner like Nyle DiMarco.
Only time will tell if she has what it takes to win the mirror ball trophy, but it’s great to see her enjoying her time in the competition.
