Jeannie Mai just got mega eyed-up for some “WAP” action ahead of her Monday night appearance on Season 29 of “Dancing With the Stars.” The TV host and media personality has been gearing up for the hit series on her Instagram, with a photo posted ahead of the show’s premiere garnering particular attention.
Jeannie, 41, joins celebrities including Carole Baskin, “Selling Sunset” star Chrishell Stause, and “Bachelorette” alum Kaitlyn Bristowe tonight. “The Real” host kept it very real in this photo. And it looks like Instagram wanted more. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo, which came with a partner, ish. The snap, outside a trailer, showed Jeannie in full pas-de-deux mode and flaunting her toned body while stretching out in a dance pose with her arms behind her. The “How Do I Look?” star, wearing heeled ballroom shoes and pale pink leggings, also flashed her toned tummy via a blue crop top. Asking fans to vote for her, Mai opened:
“Everything hurts including muscles I didn’t even know I had ? But never in my life have I worked harder or felt prouder for pushing myself.”
Keep scroling for the photo. Mai, who recently told Fox News that she can’t wait to “reconnect with people” on “DTWS,” continued with a mention of her background: “I grew up in an immigrant family, in a house with 13 people. Still in absolute disbelief to be given this opportunity to be on #DancingWithTheStars!”
Comments have been flying in from Mai’s 2.3 million followers. A popular one mentioned Billboard no. 1 “WAP” track from rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. It looks like the treacherous twosome might have competition.
A popular comment read: “Oh wow! That form! Who knew! Still crossing my fingers we get the WAP dance mid performance.”
Mai, who isn’t above responding to her fans, quickly swooped in to let the fan know her thoughts, writing:
“Keep trying the band just looks away when I ask?.”
Plenty more comments came in: “You already won! Love your spirit ❤️,” a loving fan wrote.
The YouTube star has expressed a particular pleasure in looking forward to working with host and veteran model Tyra Banks, calling her “awesome” and saying Tyra would bring her “smize” to the game.
“DWTS,” which drew in viewing figures of 7.7 million for its 2019 finale, is, indeed, quite the exposure. Mai continued her caption, writing:
“I realized when we grow up, we start sticking to “safe” or “familiar”. So I vowed to myself to start doing things I feared. Ballroom dancing in front of America?? ?✔”
“It’s humbling to be taught by so many gifted people. Week one down and it’s already the most rewarding experience in my career,” she added. The series premiers tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
