  • Milo Manheim: “Once we started getting going, it was nothing like I ever imagined. It’s so much more difficult than I thought it would be. I’ll be dancing with her and thinking I’m doing a really good job, and then I’ll look back at the video and I just look terrible.”
  • Manheim on dancing with Carson: “We have so much fun. I look forward to it every day. … But she is tough.”
  • Manheim on whether he’s prepared to dance in front of millions: “Absolutely not. But I will get there!”
  • Witney Carson: “I’m really excited. This is my tenth season on the show and that’s a lucky number for me. He’s got the personality, he’s got some rhythm and that’s all we really need.”
