It's kind of hard to believe that there have been 23 seasons of Dancing With The Stars. Are there even any more stars left to dance with? Yes, the show has plenty of infamous faces left to give difficult choreography to for our entertainment. This season is sure to be one of the most fun to watch given the cast that has been revealed. Jana Kramer, who is best known from her part as Alex on One Tree Hill, will be paired with returning dance pro, Gleb Savchenko.
He's perhaps best known for dancing alongside queen Lisa Vanderpump in Season 16. That's a tall order, but he seemed to take the task and run with it. He even claimed to People that he lured Lisa into rehearsals by taking off his shirt, which is hilarious. Although they didn't make it all the way (or far at all really), Gleb showed off his dancing chops until their elimination in Week 4. He obviously made an impression because he is back this season to work with Jana Kramer.
Besides being a brilliant motivator, here are a few interesting things about Gleb to get you excited for his appearance on Season 23.
He Is... Confident
Gleb knows what he has going for him. He's an amazing dancer and he looks like a beautiful, mythical god. Who wouldn't flaunt that? Also, he apparently has a calendar to prove it. You go, Gleb.
He Is A Traveler
This guy is always somewhere amazing. He's in the UK one second, then he is in Syndey, and suddenly he's in Hong Kong. Luckily he always posts adorable little videos of his adventures. Wanderlust is real, people.
He Was On MasterChef UK
Is there anything Gleb can't do? No, there is not. He can cook, guys! He competed on MasterChef UK, and when he was unfortunately eliminated early, his fans lost their minds.
He's Happily Married
Sorry ladies, Gleb is currently married to another beautiful dancer, Elena Samodanova. The couple share a daughter Olivia together and are #Goals.
Personally, I am psyched to see Gleb kill it this season on Dancing With The Stars. He may not have had what it takes to go all the way in the kitchen, but I am certain that a Mirror Ball trophy could be in his near future.
