-- It's the final week of season 19 of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," and the four finalists who are going to battle it out for the mirror ball trophy are excited for the two-night finale that starts tonight.
"I didn't think I was going to make it past, like, week two or three. Honestly, week one," Mota, 19, said.
"Oh, come on now," he said. "Give me some credit on that. Come on, I'll get you past week one."
Ribeiro, who starred in "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," faces three female competitors.
"I am the last man. I am the last old man standing. And no male has won over the last three seasons," he said.
Ribeiro, 43, made it to the finals despite suffering significant injuries during the course of the show, but he isn't worried about that.
In addition to their ballroom performance, each star and his or her pro partner will dance the all-important freestyle routine. The freestyle has generally had tremendous significance in determining the overall winner of the competition.
Although details of the freestyle are always kept secret, Ribeiro's partner, Witney Carson, gave a hint.
"He's great at tap dancing, so I wanted to incorporate that," she said.
Ribeiro added: "It's been 20 years since I've put on my tap shoes."
"Myself, honestly," she said. "Pushing past limits and doing things that were out of my comfort zone. Overcoming myself and my fears."
And after the competition is over, Parrish, 26, plans to indulge, telling Rycroft that she's going to eat "lots and lots of pizza and sleep past 8 a.m."
When the mirror ball trophy is awarded and the show is over, Robertson will join her famous family for Thanksgiving.
"It'll be Thanksgiving at the Robertson house," Robertson, 17, said. "I'm going to eat so much it's not going to be funny."
