Why Jenna was initially nervous about having a female partner

On Dancing With the Stars, Jenna Johnson and Jojo Siwa wrote history as the first same-sex dance couple. Jenna shares thoughts on the milestone.

Although this season of Dance with the stars goes very well for the professional dancer Jenna Johnson, she was initially nervous about partnering with another woman. Jenna joined the show as a professional dancer in season 23. While she has yet to win a Mirror Ball Trophy, Jenna finished second in season 29 last fall.

When Dance with the stars season 30 cast was announced in early september, longtime viewers were shocked to hear that the season would feature the first ever same sex DTWS duo. Although it was not originally revealed that Jenna would be the professional dancer in this pair, it was shared Dancing mothers star Jojo Siwa would be the person dancing with another woman. Jenna and Jojo’s mating was revealed during the premiere. Since then, they have excelled in the competition.

There is no doubt that Jenna and Jojo instantly formed a close bond. But Jenna was actually a little nervous about being the first professional dancer to collaborate with a star of the same sex. The dance duo recently performed at The Ellen show together, and Jenna opened up about her thoughts before the season. She said she was actually reluctant to admit her first feelings about becoming a partner with Jojo. She said, “I’m embarrassed to say that when I first found out I wanted to dance with a woman, I was a little bit nervous about how everyone was going to take it, whatever the answer would be.“Nevertheless, Jenna”immediatelysaid yes to cooperating with Jojo after being asked by the producers.

Jenna was nervous about how viewers would react to a dance duo consisting of two partners of the same sex, and the professional dancer was also excited to share the news with her family. Fortunately, they shocked her by being extremely supportive of everything. Jenna’s initial nervousness disappeared pretty quickly after she met “gay icon” Jojo for the first time. She was excited about her dance partner and said, “And then meet JoJo and just the courage she has … ” She said that Jojo’s bravery gave her strength and that she is “never looked back.

Jenna has enjoyed dancing with Jojo so much that she can actually not imagine returning to having a male partner. She joked that dancing with a man is “old news.“Perhaps the only male Jenna will dance with anymore is her husband, professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy. Val and his partner Olivia Jade Giannulli were shockingly eliminated from the competition last week.

Since Val and Olivia are no longer in the competition, there is no doubt that the duo will mess with Jenna and Jojo when they enter the semifinals. Clearly, Jenna really had nothing to be nervous about when it came to partnering with a female star. Not only has she found a new best friend in Jojo, but they have killed her in the competition since week 1. The duo has a very big chance of winning the Mirror Ball Trophy this season. If they come out on top, they will be the first dance duo of the same sex on the show, as well as the first to win a season. Those are two great accomplishments in a short season.
