LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: On Season 31 of 'Dancing with the Stars,' Trevor Donovan completed his first lap around the floor. Fans are overjoyed to watch him conquer his greatest fear on the premiere night.

Trevor Donovan is infusing romance into the ballroom! The Hallmark actor is a celebrity contestant on season 31 of 'DWTS.' Trevor is paired with professional Emma Slater.

The man who claimed to have 'irrational phobias' was in the good hands of Emma. It was unusual for fans to see a participant who is actually terrified of dancing. And they gave him a quickstep, to begin with? He wasn't, however, as horrible as everyone expected. The performance was a little harsh, but it was better than people thought after seeing the clip package. The pair came in dressed in black with white flames running up and down their suits as they quickstep to the 'DWTS' band's performance of Billy Idol's 'Dancing With Myself.' As Trevor conquered his fear, the vibrant performance was all over the stage. Viewers could first see how anxious Trevor was to get through this. However, as he continued, he appeared more at ease.

Bruno believed it was quite a ride with a lot of content, similar to white water rafting. He only requires polishing because he has the skill. Carrie Ann assumed it was packed with content, but there was a surprise! Len described it as chaotic, crazy, and out of control. He believes the two should "calm down" and add more refinement to their "hectic and chaotic" dancing. He needs to take a deep breath and relax. "I thought it was gonna be a catastrophe, and it wasn't," Derek Hough remarked.

The performance got them tenth place with an overall score of twenty-one. Carrie Ann Inaba gave five points, Bruno Tonioli gave six points, Derek Hough gave five points, and Len Goodman gave five points. When asked to explain his feelings regarding his performance in five words, Trevor said, "Exhilarated, proud, scared, shaky, and a little nauseous."

Trevor may not have led the pack tonight but he sure won hearts by overcoming his fear. Fans quickly took to social media to applaud his effort. One fan tweeted: "TALK ABOUT CONQUERING FEARS! TREVOR AND EMMA THAT WAS INSANE!!! #DWTS." Another tweet read: "For being scared sh*tless, I thought @TrevDon did an amazing job for his first dance. He didn't faint, throw up or fall. Bravo Trevor! #DWTS." Another 'DWTS' viewer praised his pro dancing partner for leading the way this week: "I thought Emma did a great job with Trevor, especially with having the Quickstep this week. #DWTS." Pointing out how the show is made for people to come out of their comfort zone, a fan wrote: "This show is MADE for people for Trevor. To get out of their comfort zone and try something new! Love it. #DWTS."





Praising Trevor for his quickstep and Emma for her choreography, another fan tweeted: "Trevor did great with that quickstep!! Emma’s choreography was outstanding. #DWTS." Some fans even felt Trevor did a higher score than what he did: "I think Trevor deserved better scores than that... Also his song choice was everything... #DancingWiththeStars #dwts." A fan wrote Trevor could improve for if he could work on refining his moves: "Trevor did better than I expected I was expecting worse that being he needs more refinement #DWTS." Mocking the producers for making Trevor do quickstep, a fan tweeted: "Trevor: I can’t dance Producers: here’s a quickstep lol #dwts."
