Jake Monreal Tells Sasha Farber Why People Should Watch Dancing with the Stars: Juniors: “Kids Could Show Their Personality Without Worrying”

  • by

Jake Monreal, one of the junior pro dancers on ‘Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” season one is getting real about the spinoff show.

When Sasha Farber asked why audiences should watch their show as opposed to the original DWTS, he didn’t hold back.

“The adults already have their own life with their kids, husbands, and all that stuff,”  Monreal says.

“Kids are just kids and they can really show their personality without worrying a little tiny bit,” he explains.  “That’s what Dancing with the Stars really needed and I’m happy I can share it with Sophia” as he points to his partner.
