Saying, his huge -- that's why I hesitated there for a moment. Hey. Let's great to have you both here. And such good sports to fly in overnight after the dancing last night. Keyshawn, you got a little emotional last night. It was wonderful to see you clearly stepped out of your comfort zone in doing this. And you were plenty surprised by the experience? I was really surprised by, robin, I think for me, to deal with just have the experience to do it. You know, when we got to hawaii, when this first started, I was one foot in and one foot out. I'm not -- I don't think I'm going to do it. I met sharna. And she taught me some things. And said, hey, you can do it. She made me comfortable in the situation. I'll go for it. I had a great experience. A LOT OF THE NFLers HAVE Gone. I didn't speak to anyone. No one? Decided to go in blind. Yeah. Learn from myself. The format was totally different for them when they were in. They kind of changed everything, right. And now, it's totally different. And I wanted to learn from her. What is harder? Training for football? Or this? You know, we were together about 3 1/2 weeks. I would probably say, this was harder than football because football is just natural to me. I lost 20 pounds in 3 1/2 weeks. It's real what they're saying about the riggers of this. Oh, my god. We probably averaged at least four hours a day in training. I mean, like, sunday, I worked sunday. I did "nfl countdown." On espn. Got to make sure to plug that. That's right. And then, I got on a plane. I got to l.A. At 9:00. We had rehearsals from like 9:30 to midnight before the show on monday. How do you retain it? I know. Just one of those things. And I have her -- every, single day, she's stressed out. I got it. Don't worry about it. She's like, no, you don't have it. The first week, you had me stressed. He worked so, so hard in those four hours. He dedicates completely to it. But it was the personality that I had no idea if that man on the football field and espn was going to come out on the dance floor. He comes out and does that cha-cha full of personality. All right. You've got it. You didn't talk to anybody. And you just said that this was harder than football. Yeah. You have to go back to work. It really is harder than football because the comfort zone that you're in football, is something you've been doing since you were little. All of a sudden, you know, you're a grown man. And you're like stepping out into this -- these guys are like 5'9", 145 pounds. And you're 230-plus pounds. Trying to move like them is totally different. Who is going to write you? I'll hear it. But it will only last a little time. This competition, it's full-on. What do you think? The cast this season is insane. We have some incredible talent from week one. You know, we really have some talent this year that has dance experience. That makes it amazing for us in what we're going to see. I'm really excited for it. I think our finale is going to be just epic. We'll be watching. You had a little more time -- just a second dance. You could tell you were really starting to get into it. I'm sorry that you were excused. There you go. We will miss you so much and your smile and your personality. Thank you. Sharna, thank you. Who will be next to leave the dance floor? Find out monday, 8:00, 7:00 here on abc.
