The conservationist and season 21 mirror ball champion credits the dancing competition for healing anxieties she faced after the death of her father Steve Irwin, specifically her fears of losing her family especially mother Terri and brother Robert.
"It was really bad when I was younger, now I just have this sense that I want to protect them, so it's always 'be safe' and 'I love you,'" Irwin, 17, told The Australian Women's Weekly.

"We are still waiting for that rebellion to hit," says Bindi, who is featured in the latest issue of PEOPLE. "I keep waiting for it, like, one day I'll just wake up and feel like going crazy, but so far it hasn't happened. It just doesn't appeal to me."

Bindi Irwin was just 8 years old when her father died.
Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin was working on the documentary series Ocean's Deadliest when he was attacked by a stingray off the coast of northern Australia in 2006, leaving Bindi, her mother Terri and her younger brother Robert without their "superhero."
"Dad was the strongest person I've ever known," Irwin, 17, says in this week's issue of PEOPLE. "And when the strongest person is taken away, you kind of go, 'Oh my goodness. What are we going to do?' "
