Robert Kardashian is one of the newest contestants of Dancing withÂ theÂ Stars, but he isn’t the first Kardashian to star onÂ theÂ show, Kim did it a few years ago. But Robert revealed that his mother, Kris Jenner forced him to do the show! Not the best reason to do the show, don’t you think?
Rob Kardashian is the second Kardashian to join the hit ABC series Dancing With the Stars — thanks to his mom, Kris Jenner! “I’m actually shocked that I’m doing it — I’m very low-key and really don’t like being in the spotlight, but my mom forced me,” Rob tells Life & Style. “That’s the real reason I’m doing it!”
And Rob wasn’t the first Kardashian kid Kris pushed to do the show. “She forced Kim to do it, too!” Rob, 24, tells Life & Style. Kim competed on DWTS with pro Mark Ballas in fall 2008 but was eliminated during the third episode. “[My family] told me that I had better beat Kim as she’s a terrible dancer, and if I couldn’t do this, then I had a problem. I’m just hoping that I do well.”
If there’s one thing Rob does want to lose during his time on the series, it’s weight, he says. “I weigh more than I’ve ever weighed, at more than 200 pounds,” Rob reveals to Life & Style. “I’m usually always in shape, but I’ve been enjoying not working out and eating crap, so I’ll use this to really start getting in shape!”
When asked if any other members of the Kardashian clan are eyeing the dance floor, Rob counts one sibling out. “Kourtney would never do it,” he says. “She’s such a homebody.”
