While he joked that his two female dance partners' combined ages still did not equal his age of 43, he knows that his competition has an advantage over him.
"I would say the kids are my biggest competition," he told ET at Southern Comfort's World's Largest Group Toast on Saturday night. "You know, the three girls: Sadie, Bethany, and Janelle. They've got the stamina to go all the way."
The youngsters are not getting to him though as he says there are not any fighting words on the show. "The one thing that I've enjoyed about this show is we all get along and we all have a great time and we all support each other. We come into each other's rehearsal studios and we support, we give claps, we just give love...It is a competition, but we're not treating it that way."
The love and support is also a result of all of that time they spend together. Alfonso spoke about what it takes to be on the show.
He said, "I kind of knew what I was getting into beforehand. It's just, no matter how much you know about the hours you're going to be working, until you're actually doing it, you have no idea. It's literally every day. It's seven days a week. It's six or seven hours a day, minimum. It's a lot of time. There's a lot that goes into it. But it's really very rewarding at the end, so I'm all good with it."
