Pro Kym Johnson Reveals Why She Came Back to ‘DWTS’


Kym Johnson sat out the last three seasons of Dancing With the Stars, but she just couldn’t say no to Season 24 once she learned who her partner would be.

And yes, it’s Mr. T!

"When they told me [my partner] was Mr. T, I was like,'You know what? How can I resist that?'" she told Entertainment Tonight.

"I'm coming back, and I'm so glad I'm here."

The Australian ballroom dancer was last on Season 20 of DWTS when she was partnered with Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec, who is now her husband!

"Robert's like, 'Oh, you've got Mr. T. I hope I don't have to come and kick his a—,'" she said.

Though The A-Team star was a pro wrestler, Robert had him a little nervous.

"He had me shakin', yes! Cause I thought he was gonna get the other guys from Shark Tank on me. You know, yeah, oh boy!” the 64-year-old said.

"I told her, when I met her, I found out she was married, 'Now, you tell your husband, I won't hold you in a certain way. I'm gonna be respectful,'" he continued.

"I'm an old-fashioned momma's boy. I am. Can't be vulgar. Very respectable ... I'm a tough guy, but I'm a gentle guy."

Needless to say, Robert’s very excited to watch his wife and the Rocky III legend dance this season.

"He's so excited. He's gonna be our No. 1 fan,” Kim said.

We’re so excited to see Kim and Mr. T dance in a few weeks! Who are you looking forward to watching?

And just as an added bonus, let’s all remind ourselves of Mr. T’s foray into music back in 1984! Enjoy!

Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, March 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
