Kym Johnson is a two-time Dancing with the Stars champion, taking the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 9 with Donny Osmond and season 12 with Hines Ward. The Australia native will be blogging for PEOPLE.com about competing with Joey Fatone in the all-star season.
Dancing with the Stars rehearsals have been great. Obviously I danced with Joey in season 4, so it's really nice to be reunited with him. There's definitely a lot more pressure because it's the all-stars, but it's fun because we're all in the same rehearsal space. We have different rooms, but we see everyone there. It's like one big, happy family.

Rehearsals are underway for the upcoming all-star season of Dancing with the Stars, and pro Kym Johnson says she and partner Joey Fatone have one main goal this time around.
Take down the man who beat them last time.
"We were on season 4, and we were second. Apolo [Ohno] beat us, and he's on this season as well, so we're going to try and get over him first of all," she told PEOPLE at the premiere of The Words in Hollywood.

The all-star season of Dancing with the Stars doesn't start until Sept. 24, but contestant Drew Lachey is wasting no time in sizing up the competition.
"Everyone on the show is very competitive," he tells PEOPLE. "Everyone's laughing and like, 'Oh, haha, this is going to be fun,' but I guarantee once the show starts up, you're going to see everybody's true colors come out."
One of the people the 98 Degrees band mate, 36, sees as a direct rival – on the dance floor, that is – is former 'NSYNC singer Joey Fatone, 35.

Since the all-star cast of the fall season of Dancing with the Stars was revealed, it's become clear that all bets are off regarding the show's next winner. After all, the cast includes returning champions like former NFL player Emmitt Smith and Olympians Apolo Anton Ohno and Shawn Johnson, as well as beloved fan-favorites like Melissa Rycroft, Kirstie Alley and Gilles Marini.
But Dancing pro (and season 13 winner) Karina Smirnoff isn't afraid to share her thoughts on who might emerge victorious in the show's new season, which premieres Sept. 24 on ABC.
"The women are very strong, but the male celebrity guests are a little bit stronger overall," Smirnoff told PEOPLE at an event sponsored by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. "I mean, we have an Olympian male guest – Apolo Anton Ohno. I'm sure he'll go very far."
