Derek Hough Gives Shout Out To DWTS Security Team After Ryan Lochte Protest
Derek Hough holds onto a cool bottle of water while arriving at the dance studio on Friday afternoon (September 16).
The 31-year-old dancer met up with his DWTS partner Marilu Henner to work on their foxtrot for next week’s show.
“I have to give a huge shout-out to our security. We’ve known those guys forever and they were just awesome. They were quick and on top of it. We were all like, ‘Yeah! Go get ‘em!’” he shared in his TVGuide blog about the Ryan [Lochte] protest. “Julianne told me afterward that she wished I waited for security to escort the women out because they could’ve had something on them. I was like, ‘I wasn’t worried about that. I would’ve just ducked. I’ve got my rhinestone jacket on!’”
Derek added, “All jokes aside, it was a very scary incident. It was a really weird thing that’s never happened in 23 seasons. With everything that’s been going on right now with shootings, it puts you on edge when stuff like that happens. We’re all very grateful that everyone is safe and we’re all moving on and looking ahead.”
