A “Dancing With the Stars” finalist talks about his time on the show. “Catfish” host Nev Schulman said it made him “regretful” [his] Life choices. “Read on to find out why and how he really feels about Kaitlyn Bristowe, who beat him for the Mirrorball Trophy in season 29.
In a January 2021 episode of Jana Kramer’s podcast “Whine Down”, country singer and presenter Nev had to ask about “Dancing With the Stars” because they are both alumni – Nev took second place in season 29 with partner Jenna Johnson and Jana took fourth place in season 23 with partner Gleb Savchenko.
Jana told Nev that she loved seeing him on “Dancing With the Stars” and that she really was out for him to win, to which he cheekily replied, “Apparently not hard enough. If you had perhaps had a few more people to vote on, I would have had it. “
But about his experience on the show, Nev said that “Dancing With the Stars” really drove him home for him, that he loved to dance, and maybe he should have followed it professionally.
“This experience [on ‘Dancing With the Stars’] was the only thing that ever happened to me that really made me regret my life choices, ”said Nev. “I should have just become a professional dancer. I should have just followed the dance and become a dancer. “
Of course, the married father of three added that he is “happy”
with where [he’s] at ”, but“ Dancing With the Stars ”gave him a foretaste of what could have been if he had chosen a different path in life.
“Well, you were really good and it was fun to take part,” said Jana.
Nev and Jenna lost the Mirrorball Trophy to “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev, and he joked with Jana that “we don’t talk about Kaitlyn Bristowe in her house,” but added that he “actually likes it a lot”[s] her.”
He also asked Jana about her time on the show. She laughed and said she was down a lot.
“Semi-finals, but I had a few mishaps on the way because I’m not a dancer! Me and Gleb were like the whole time down, “said Jana, to which Nev replied:” Ooh, Gleb! Were you single then ?! “
Jana then laughed and said, “I got broken up,” and Nev said they had to talk about it later. In case you are curious, Jana revealed in her book that she had to tell her then husband Mike Caussin about her “flirtations and affairs” during the last few months when they were separated.
“I had allowed myself some – how should I say it? – ‘Flirtations and affairs’ during our breakup. I told Michael about it when he asked when, damn it, part of me wanted to lie through my teeth. If I entertained other guys just in retaliation, that would be one thing; I could own that. But I know myself and I know that I really had the intention to move on. I wanted to prove to myself that I was still lovable. He heard and accepted my truth, ”wrote Kramer in her book entitled“ The good fight: wanting to leave, wanting to stay and the powerful practice of loving faithfully ”with Caussin.
However, Jana and Mike divorced in April 2021 after finding out he was unfaithful. She recently became official on Instagram with her new boyfriend, Ian Schinelli.
She also told Nev on the podcast that if she wasn’t so distracted that her marriage was falling apart because it was too much, she’d love to play on “Dancing With the Stars” again, in addition to the pressure you’re already in Feel the show.
“I feel like it only upsets you mentally because you are you and you are successful and then you go on the show and you think, ‘I suck!’ and you just feel like you – I don’t know, for myself I would really like to go back and have more fun with it and not be unhappy with my marriage and the whole thing, ”Jana said.
“Dancing With the Stars” has not yet been renewed for the 31st season. If extended, it will come back in September 2022.
