NICK & VANESSA’S BATTLE FOR THE MIRRORBALL
May the Best Lachey Win!
For only the second time in Dancing With the Stars history, a husband and wife will compete against each other as contestants (Alexa and Carlos Penavega were the first in Season 21). So how do Nick and Vanessa Lachey feel about battling for the Mirrorball Trophy in Season 25? “We’re all competitive, but it definitely [adds] a little wrinkle knowing that you’re going against your spouse,” Nick, 43, told Life & Style at Planet Hollywood in NYC. Putting an extra twist on the spousal showdown, Nick is paired with Peta Murgatroyd, 31, while Vanessa is teaming with Peta’s hubby, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 37. Will Nick give Vanessa, 36, a peek at his routines? “Heck no!” he says. Looks like Nick will have to guard his dancing feet more carefully. “I did catch him,” Vanessa confesses, “doing a couple routines.”
Who’s the better dancer, Nick or Vanessa? “It’s her, 100 percent,” Nick tells
