“Dancing With the Stars” week 1 recap: Grocery Store Joe puts on his dancing shoes


Monday, 13 new Dancing With the Stars contestants laced up their dancing shoes in hopes of impressing the judges. Sadly, not all succeeded, but everyone certainly had fun.

Before the series premiere, we had a chance to sit down and chat with Joe Amabile aka “Grocery Store Joe” and Mary Lou Retton about their journey thus far.

Joe discussed life after The Bachelor, his relationship with Kendall, and what to expect on the ballroom floor.

Whereas with Mary Lou Retton, we were able to talk about her success as not only an athlete but as a female! Did you know she was the 1st female Olympic gold medalist in Gymnastics, and 1st woman ever to be on the cover of a wheaties box? How cool!

>>> Take a look in the video above.
