Couple: Hines Ward & Kym Johnson
There’s a first time for everything, but usually your first try at anything isn’t in front of millions of people who all decided your fate. That said, the challenge of an instant Jive didn’t shake Hines too much—at first.
"I was really looking forward to doing the Jive because I’ve never done it before, but now that it’s an instant Jive, I’m a little bit nervous about it," Hines admitted.
Those nerves quickly turned to frustration as editors had to bleep the NFL player a couple times. It was clear that Happy Hines had left the studio for a minute because he was practicing without music.
Not-so-promising practice aside, Hines and Kym killed their Jive on Monday. From this performance it’s really hard to believe that Hines and Kym had no idea what the song would be until minutes before the director struck up the band.
