Karina Smirnoff's DWTS Blog: 'This Season Will Be Very Surprising'

Originally posted 09/15/2014 12:00PM

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, having won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The pro dancer is now in her 16th season on the show, and will be blogging for PEOPLE about competing with actor and retired mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture for season 19.

Preparations for this week have been going amazingly. I've been a fan of my partner, Randy Couture, for years. My dog, Randy Smirnoff, is named after Randy Couture! When I saw he was my partner, I was like, "Oh my gosh, my dad will be so excited." Randy's his favorite fighter, too.

Being an Olympic wrestler as well as an ex-soldier, Randy has discipline and dedication that are unbeatable. For a man of Randy's stature – he's tall, very muscular, very built – it's not the easiest thing to be light on the feet and to be a "twinkle toes." He's been working so hard and has made progress, and how much he's done since Day One is amazing. I'm very proud of him.

Janel Parrish's DWTS Blog: 'A Reality Show Makes You Feel Like You're Naked'

Janel Parrish is best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars. She's been paired with pro Val Chmerkovskiy for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be blogging for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.

When I found out I was going to be on the show, my reaction came at me in two waves. The first wave was extreme excitement, and the second was extreme nervousness, just because I've never done anything like this before.

Everyone watches you go through your journey, whether it's up or down, and they see you at every stage of the rehearsals. Doing a reality show kind of makes you feel like you're naked, but I'm also open to that challenge, because I think that's why people watch the show. It's been a really, really fun roller-coaster ride for me so far.
