Shawn Johnson of ‘DWTS’ Says ‘Derek Hough Is More Intense Than Mark Ballas’

November 9, 2012 12:01 am

On Monday’s episode of “Dancing With The Stars,” Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson will be two-stepping with  partner Mark Ballas in pursuit of her 2nd trophy.

Melissa Rycroft Says It’s Hard To Be On ‘DWTS’ With A Family!

She won her 1st title with Mark, but was actually partnered with Derek Hough for this all-star season until last week when Derek was temporarily sidelined by aggravating a preexisting injury. So what’s the biggest difference between dancing with Derek vs. Mark? Shawn says:

“Honestly they’re completely different. Derek is more of a perfectionist from the very start where as Mark wants to get the whole creative thing done, and he’ll go back later for details. I don’t know, I’d say Derek might be more intense.”

Also, if you’re a fan of Shawn, be sure to check out the gold medalist’s new autobiography “Winning Balance.” She’ll be signing copies of her book at the ESPN Zone in Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA on Saturday, November 10.
