JoJo added, “I think it’s so untraditional and it’s amazing.”
To the young star, it’s like she’s “already won” the competition thanks to representing same sex couples onscreen.
“I’ve already had so much good come from this show and from this experience, history came from it,” JoJo reflected. “My partner and I, we both obviously want to win the Mirror Ball, that’s what everybody’s there for. But at the same time, we have to work really hard to do that. I’m going to be judged a lot harder because I am a dancer.”
JoJo also drew on her real-life experiences from her former Dance Moms troupe, led by Abby Lee Miller, when executive producing her film The J Team. “Obviously when you see the full movie, you’ll hear that there’s some funny lines and funny references that could make you think that,” JoJo revealed about Abby’s influence.
