Transcript for ‘DWTS’ 2020: Netflix star Jerry Harris cheers on coach Monica Aldama
Back now here on "Gma" with the cast of "Dancing with the joining us live we revealed the latest mirror ball competitorers moments ago and chatted with half the crew. Let's talk to the rest of this fantastic cast and let's start with aj aj Mclean, my man, I talked to you last week when we revealed you'd be on the show. Seems like we've been watching you dance for the past 30 years. Ballroom dancing. But you said you're ready to go. What do you have for us this morning? What can you tease us with. Let's see -- I'm trying to implement a little bit of what I formally do, so a little bit more of like, you know stuff like this. But then I've also been told from my partner that this is where my hand needs to always be. This is my reign of terror. Zone of terror. Too low or too high, I'm totally going to lose so I'm trying to just listen intently. I love that. Do the best I can. All right, Monica Aldama, we love you in "Cheer." You led your squad to victory 14 times so you're all about competition. I know that and we actually have a message for you from Jerry Harris, one of your champion let's take a look. Aagh. Congratulations, Monica. For getting picked to be on "Dancing with the stars." You deserve it. Yes many. I'm so happy for you. I can't wait to vote for you every week, cheer for you and just scream at the TV. Tell us what you'll bring to the ballroom floor. Well, I'm hoping that, you know, my 25 years of experience in getting teams ready for competition, I can use the strategy that we use for mentally and physically preparing, I have never done dance in my life. I've always done cheerleading and learned very quickly it's completely different and it's a whole different technique so I have a long journey ahead of me but I know how to work hard. I'm definitely going to bring that. You got your cheering squad there too as well so we'll look forward to that. A fierce competitor. We have to keep our eye on Monica. Jesse Metcalfe, we remember you from "Desperate housewives." We heard you were asked to be on "Dancing with the stars" before but this time you said yes so what was the reason for this year's ballroom? You know, I really just feel that it's a totally new landscape in the entertainment industry with youtubers and tiktokers crossing over and doing big movies. You know, it's sort of wide open for you to do whatever you want and I always wanted to do the show. I was just afraid that people wouldn't take me seriously as an actor and now I feel like, you know, we live in a world where you can do whatever you want so here I am. I'm basically a nondancer. I mean I have no formal training in dance whatsoever. So I'm excited to work hard and hopefully leave the show with a new skill set. Maybe get a job on Broadway. All right. Going in with the right attitude. I love that. Anne heche. Let's talk to you. We obviously know you and have admired you on the big screen and your sons know mommy is an actress. What do they think of mom as a I don't think they think anything. They've only seen me dance with brooms. I never had professional trainer as an actor but got schooled by the best and never had a professional dancing class, but I'm going to be schooled by the best and honestly who could say though to that. You know, I think -- My kids are beyond -- they are so supportive and here and Alice is being schooled, literally by Homer so that I can do this and they can both be here with me and they couldn't be more excited. It's pretty cool. Sounds like some of the competitors are playing mind I had no training. I don't know how to dance. Justina, you've had all kinds of rehearsals throughout your career but not necessarily these types of rehearsals. How are the dance rehearsals going for you now? The other day I walked out of rehearsal and somebody said are you okay? And I said, yeah, they're like you don't look okay. I was limping out of that rehearsal. Going that well, huh? Until I got there. That's what happened. Do you have a go to dance move yet? You know, I'm a chair dancer. It's hard to get me up and now I got to get up. That's what's going to happen. I'm one of those people but I'm getting up now. We go to Kaitlyn bristowe. You are in very good company. The last person who won "Dancing with the stars," of course, a former bachelorette. We also have some classic photos, I think, of you in the zone. Oh, look at that. Definitely a throwback right there. Maybe done at a mall across America somewhere, not sure but those look great. Who do you think right now is your biggest competition? Well, I was going to say aj because I've seen his show live, I've seen the way his hips move and they're better than mine but then I saw that Johnny guy's video and that's intimidating. I have two I have my eyes on. Scouting the competition. I think aj, aj might be the guy everyone is watching. Going to be very exciting. "Dancing with the stars" premieres September 14th at 8:00 P.M., 7:00 central right here on ABC.
