Dancing with the Stars celeb blog: Robert Herjavec on the trio dance, fans, and double elimination

May 5, 2015 | Dancing With The Stars

When I signed up for Dancing with the Stars, I did it to honor my mom, who absolutely loved the pageantry and beauty of the show. Little did I know 8 weeks later, I would find myself vying for a position in the semi-finals. I’m a competitive person, but I’m also realistic.  By nature I’m hard wired to consider an opportunity, evaluate the benefits versus risks and make a call. Would I have bet on me to proceed to this stage? Perhaps not. But let me tell you—the #TeamSharkaroo fans have truly invested in Kym Johnson and me. I am so overwhelmed…

Dancing with the Stars celeb blog: Robert Herjavec on dance-offs, anniversaries, and fan questions

April 28, 2015 | Dancing With The Stars

It was Eras Night on Dancing with the Stars and Kym and I found ourselves transported back to the 80’s. When we heard we had the argentine tango this week we were thrilled! Then we heard it was going to be to “Word Up” – and I won’t lie, I just couldn’t visualize it all coming together. The more we listened to the track we realized how inventive and unique the version was. I’m really pleased with our performance! We got to be serious (despite the squirrel moments) and show off some lifts. Our scores are headed in the right…

After last week’s quick step, Kym and I found ourselves in the bottom two. First of all—THANK YOU! Your votes saved us, and we so appreciate your support. It really is a privilege to be part of such an incredible production, and we want to keep improving and pushing forward. Last night, we danced a jive to Surfin Safari….

My Friend Daniel Wang

April 14, 2015 | Dancing With The Stars, Herjavec Group (Cyber Security), Shark Tank

Two weeks ago I blogged about my friend from the Cancer Kiss My Cooley organization, Daniel Wang. Daniel is a huge Shark Tank fan, and we met last year in Chicago and had a great day driving around in a Ferrari. Daniel overcame a 3 1/2 year battle with brain cancer and was so excited for me to be part of Dancing with the Stars this season. He came to see it live with his mom and sister Daphne a few short weeks ago and soaked in the entire experience. What I didn’t know at the time was that he was…

April 1, 2015 | Dancing With The Stars

(Adam Taylor/ABC ) Dancing With the Stars Posted March 31 2015 — 1:28 PM EDT Last night’s dance couldn’t have taken me further outside of my comfort zone: An open shirt, a spray tan and the rumba… All week my team kept telling me, “make sure you don’t count the ‘Mississippis’!” I’ll admit I didn’t get it at first, but thank goodness the team at Dancing with the Stars took good care of me so I didn’t end up looking like Ross. Len mentioned that the rumba can be the kiss of death for male competitors, because you have to…
