“Dancing With The Stars” season 30 is in full ballroom mode, and Olivia Jade continues to score ‘W’s keeping her in the competition.
This past week marked the season’s third week of dance battles, and Olivia along with dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, scored the HIGHEST score of the night.
The partners danced the tango to “Hold It Against Me” by Britney Spears for ‘Dancing With The Stars Britney Night!’
Their high score secured them the first spot in the safety zone from elimination.
When asked whether or not there’s a chance her mother and former “Full House” star, Lori Loughlin, would give ‘DWTS’ a shot, her daughter said “it’s not out of the question.”
In fact, Olivia’s pro-dance partner has already “been trying to recruit” Lori!
“I don’t know how many more seasons I got in me, but I’ll stick around for [Lori],” Chmerkovskiy, 35, told Page Six and other reporters during a post-show presser Monday night.
While Olivia hasn’t straight up asked her mom whether or not she’d come on the show, she did say that Lori has been nothing but supportive.
“But she’s just proud of me. Mama bear, just excited,” the YouTuber said.
Chmerkovskiy added that Lori has been in “total mom mode” since Olivia got into the competition.
“We FaceTime her all the time. Literally right after we get off the stage I call her,” Olivia Jade explained. “She’s the biggest support ever. She’s really proud of me, and I love her so much. She’s my hero, so it’s really nice to know she’s watching.”
The former USC student has been a polarizing contestant since it was announced she’d be joining the show.
Olivia, her sister and parents were subjects of the college admissions scandal of 2019.
Where the scandal began!
Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, plead guilty last may for bribing both Olivia Jade and their older daughter, Isabella “Bella” Giannulli, into the University of Southern California as fake rowing recruits.
Many fans feel Olivia Jade is not worthy of this platform or position given she’s basically had everything handed to her on a silver platter.

Upon being cast on the dancing competition show, Olivia Jade told reporters she hopes to use this experience as an opportunity to “grow” and is “grateful” for a second chance in the entertainment business.
“I hope people just really genuinely know how excited and grateful I am,” she said. Adding, “I think about a few weeks ago, and knowing that this was very far-fetched and not really in the cards. I’m super thankful for a second chance. I’m ready to put myself back out there and try new things, I’m really excited to challenge myself and put myself out of my comfort zone, which I don’t do often.”
