Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Joseph Baena surprises fans with his muscular performance, which fans now want to see him “ballroom with those arms and hands”.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: “Dancing with the Stars” returned for season 31, including Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Joseph Baena, who got the opportunity to prove he could do more than just pump iron. Fans who didn’t expect much from the lesser-known dancer were blown away by his moves and wished to see more of him in the future.
With “little to no” dance experience, Joseph Baena took the stage. He stormed through a jive dance performance to the Black Eyed Peas’ “Pump It,” assisted by dance pro and Season 30 Champion Daniella Karagach. For the first few minutes of the competition, Baena relied on his strength and took on a few positions his father would have liked before he started dancing. The performance was very well received by audiences, although the jury noted that there was clearly room for improvement.
Judges Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Derek Hough each gave Joseph Baena a six, while Len Goodman gave him a five for a total score of 23. Len pointed out that Joseph’s footwork was a little soft and saggy, which no one would ever say about the actor’s arms. As for further criticism, the judges generally stated that Joseph needs to improve and improve his technique in order to get a higher score the next week. Carrie Ann Inaba gave top praise to Joseph Baena, saying the way he performed reminded her of season 30 winner Iman Shumpert. Iman also underperformed early in the competition, but he used his athleticism to get better every week and eventually caused a big upset when he defeated veteran dancer JoJo Siwa.
It’s too early to tell if Joseph Baena will live up to expectations. His debut dance score now puts him in eighth place among the contestants on season 31 of Dancing with the Stars. He made it through the first round of the competition and shocked people around the world. While appreciating his pro dance partner Daniella, fans wrote, “Daniela has given Joseph a lot of content despite clearly having no dance training. One fan dubbed Joseph the “dark horse” of the competition, writing: “Joseph was my choice for the dark horse, a potential diamond in the rough. Daniella’s imaginative choreography combined with his personal discipline should hopefully result in an interesting growth story throughout the season. #DWTS.” Some fans feel Joseph needs to work on his moves to continue to compete, saying, “Joseph Baena did what he could. However, he could maybe be carved into a dancer. He needs to learn to flow better. Be like the wind. #DWTS.” One fan wrote that the score Joseph received was too low given his performance: “These scores for Joseph & Daniella are too low! That was good technique (minus feet) #DWTS.”
Next, fans are hoping to see some ballroom from the muscle man: “I want to see Joseph do some ballroom with those arms and hands. Big potential! #DWTS.” Though Joseph has made mistakes in his performances, some fans see potential in him: “Joseph…huh. He nailed the moves pretty well, but at some points he almost went in the opposite direction of Daniella. There were some nice moments in it and he played well for the audience too! Interesting to see what else he has to offer. #dwts #DWTS31 #DancingWiththeStars. Fans are now expecting him to improve under the guidance of professional dancer Daniella: “Joseph wasn’t terrible but he wasn’t great. If he stays Dani will make him improve every week just like she always does at #dwts. ” Another DWTS viewer called Joseph “charismatic” and tweeted, “No doubt Joseph is very charismatic. There are many good things to work on if he stays around.
