'Dancing with the Stars' season 27: 'Bachelor in Paradise' star Jordan Kimball to join Joe Amabile on Trio Night
Joe also teased that the recent relationship drama between Jordan and Joe's ex-fiancee, Jenna Cooper, doesn't faze the two men anymore
Joe Amabile has a new addition to his team on 'Dancing with the Stars', and that is in the form of his fellow 'Bachelor in Paradise' star Jordan Kimball. Joe won't be the only one with an addition on his team, as it was announced on Monday night's episode of 'Dancing with the Stars' season 27 that the coming week would show the duo teams turning into trios as a special guest would be joining each of them for their performance. And luckily for Joe, Jordan will have his back on Trio Night.
"He is our trio partner," Jenna Johnson - Joe's pro-partner on the show, told Entertainment Tonight, as Joe also teased that the recent relationship drama between Jordan and Joe's ex-fiancee, Jenna Cooper, doesn't faze the two men anymore. Clearly, all water is under the bridge between our Grocery Store Joe and the Florida-based model.
"I haven't even paid attention to [the scandal], because I have to learn how to dance, and I don't know how to dance, so it's been taking up most of my time," Joe said. "I think he is in a good place right now, and he's excited about being here, and that's all that matters."
About to perform a salsa on next week's episode, there's a reason why Joe's 'Bachelor in Paradise' girlfriend, Kendall Long isn't their trio partner. "I can't bring Kendall, because she is such a good dancer. It will really embarrass me," he revealed. "But we dance on our own time, if you know what I mean." He also added: "She is too good, she really is. I can't bring her. She's too good of a dancer."
As of now, Joe is only concentrating on getting all of his moves right, considering his scores haven't exactly been impressive on the show so far. "I really try not to take [the judges' criticism] to heart," he said. "I just really wanted to nail the choreography, because I screwed up on her every week, and I feel terrible. She's an amazing coach. I felt really good, and that's all I really want, so I am happy about it. I mean, I wish we would have gotten a higher score, but you know, we're here another week," he added.
Jenna shared: "I think we finished Monday night, and we just have to erase what happened and start fresh on the new week, and just stay motivated. He worked so hard, so it's awesome to see him grow. I am so proud. 'Dancing With the Stars' airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
