Exclusive: Would DWTS Pro Keo Motsepe Leave The Ballroom For The Small Screen?



Professional dancer Keo Motsepe has made a huge splash on season 19 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars as the show’s first Black dancer and first representative of his native country, South Africa.

“Everyone so different and I obviously bring something different to the show,” Keo told us during a recent interview in the HipHollywood loft. “For me it’s very important and it’s very big that I do what I love and I keep doing what I do everyday.”

But with all the 24-year-old’s dancing success, would he ever leave the ballroom for the big screen? Not entirely, but he did tell us that “if I get the opportunity to get TV work … I’m open for that.”

During HipHollywood’s chat with the 24-year-old, the dancer also opened up about being the first to be eliminated. Motsepe and his dancing partner, Olympian Lolo Jones opened up the season with a not so stellar Cha Cha, which landed them at the bottom of the leader board.

“It was bad, it was good. Bad for I felt sorry for her to go because I knew if she goes I’m still going to be on the show,” he said. “She was committed, she had a passion for dance.”

You can still see Keo’s killer dance moves on DWTS every Monday/Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.
