"He's won three times now so I don't want to let him down," Ricki explains. I'm hoping to bring home a fourth for him!"

Judging from this recent rehearsal, things are looking good for Dancing hopefuls. Despite a minor injury last week, the duo is cramming daily 5-hour practice sessions to get themselves into tip-top shape for the big reveal. "If Kirstie Alley can do it, I can do it!" declared Lake.
