The last few weeks have been an incredible experience on Dancing with the Stars Thailand!  I’m enjoying every single moment – the rehearsals, show promos, photo shoots, and of course the performances. Although sometimes it gets really hard to keep up this intense schedule – waking up early every day, dancing for 4 hours, then doing some other work to promote the show, it’s all worth it.  I’m having the time of my life and living out my dream!

The first week there were no individual couple performances, but we did a group dance – all the stars and pros.  That was a lot of fun and not too stressful as it was not competition week yet. We danced to “Gangnam Style” by Psy, which was hilarious!  Our outfits were so colorful and crazy, and it was a good way to start the show, just to have fun and not be too serious.  Watch the group dance video from first episode here:

The second week is when the competition officially began.  All the teams danced either the cha-cha-cha or Viennese Waltz.  Tea and I were selected to be the first couple to perform, and we danced the cha-cha-cha to a very famous Thai song “Lerk laew ka”, which is a song about breaking up with someone but finding yourself happier being single.  We were dressed up as a high-school football player/cheerleader couple.  I must say, being the first to dance was highly nerve-wracking and stressful.  I think we performed very well, better than any of our rehearsals.


Our dance had quite difficult choreography for me as I’m not a professional dancer, and it was so fast I could barely keep up.  The scores from the judges didn’t reflect how I felt about our performance. We were tied for the bottom position on the leader board at the end of the show. I was a bit disappointed with the result but I knew in my heart I did my very best and I felt happy and proud of Tea and I. Luckily, there was no elimination that week, and we were now relying on the public votes and our next dance to keep us safe the following week.


Check out my second episode dance here:

The third episode was so much more fun for me as I wasn’t as nervous as the first week.  Our dance was the Quickstep to Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love, which I absolutely love.  This was the first time I ever got to dance ballroom style.  It took a while to warm up to it, because I love Latin style dance more, but as it turns out, I’m quite a natural at it.  My height, frame and posture allows for beautiful lines and movements, as I was told, so I felt a lot more confident for the performance this time.


Our theme was Broadway, and Tea and I were both dressed in tuxedoes with top hats and canes.  I thought we did a great job once again on the performance and technical side, and the judges gave us very good reviews.  The scores were much better this time, and we ended up in third place at the end of the show.  The other half danced the Rumba, the one style of dance I’m really wishing to dance in this show!  And finally the first elimination came around. We were all so nervous and didn’t want to go through with it.  It felt like splitting up of a family – one of us would have to go.  One by one, the couples were saved from elimination and luckily Tea and I were one of them.  Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Khun Ying Malinee who was such a great sport about it.

And now that we are safe, I’m looking forward to next week’s dance! It’ll be a fun and wonderful performance for sure!  I’m practicing hard every day to make it the best dance yet, but still need your support and votes to keep me in the competition.  If you live in Thailand, please sms “DWTS2” to 4777999 as many times as you can from Tuesday after the show until Saturday night.  Thank you to everyone who has voted and shown their love for our team the last few weeks.  I want to keep dancing for you week after week until the finale!
