Taking a break from the outback to taken to dance floor. That's exciting. This is a big step. What inspired it? I'm really, really excited. And so honored to be a part of this new journey and new chapter of my life. I have to tell you. This is completely different to anything I have ever done in my life. I am used to wrangling crock Dils. I just got back from our annual crocodile research trip about four days ago. I was in queensland catching crocs. Now I'm in New York City. Can you incorporate any of those moves? I'm going to try. I don't know how my dance partner will feel about that. We'll have to wait and see. We're used to seeing you in crack khakis. Are you ready for the dress and heels? You're kind. I'm used to khaki and boots. It will always be a part of my life. We say kangky is not just a color, it's an attitude. It's a part of who we are. You can't climb a tree or wrangle a snake? A dress very easily. This is completely different. For me, "Dancing with the stars" has always been something that I have admired. I have no dance experience at all. Oh. I believe we have some video that would say otherwise! Uh-oh. Oh, no. Can you roll that? What have you found? Oh, goodness. Pretty sure. It's like a workout video that you did. It is. It's kid fitness. It was about getting kids active and outside. And driving along. Not quite sure if it is the same as ballroom dancing. We might be able to bust out a few of those moves. So obvious you're so game. That's half the battle. You have to be willing to go for it and take chances. No doubt you will. Thank you. Absolutely. It's about having the courage and strength. For me, it is completely different. I hope I can inspire others in their own lives to seize opportunity and to make a difference and just jump, take the leap, even if it tear Fies you. I'm quite nervous about this. Are you more afraid of the the ballroom than you are of crocodiles? Oh, for sure. I have to tell you. The judges scare me more than crocodiles. They are so knowledgeable. Supreme athletes. I'm just a girl from Australia who is used to crocs. How are you getting ready? For me, I have my family here with me. They're my support unit no matter what. My mum and little brother, Robert, are here with me at the moment. I hope my dance partner, whoever it is, is patience and likes anima animals. You never know what I'll bring to rehearsals. Your mom is beaming. Absolutely beaming. So proud of you. I'm trillionhrilled. Thank you. Life is filled with adventure. There's mom. There she is. We love you! And the season premiere of "Dancing with the stars" is September 14th right here on ABC. Good luck to you.
