One minute. That's all it took for Derek Hough and Jennifer Grey to become favorites - with the judges and fans alike - on the premiere of Dancing With the Stars.
How does Derek like their chances? Does the perceived experience of Jennifer Grey actually help them? Can he set one of our interns up with his sister Julianne?
Just kidding, we didn't ask about that last item. But Derek was kind enough to talk all things Dancing with us this week. Here's our Q&A with the ballroom pro ...
Derek Hough with Jennifer Grey.
THG: Have you narrowed down a favorite nickname for you and Jennifer?
Derek Hough: I think we've finally settled on Baby Derek. We've gone back and forth a bit between Jenhougher and Baby Derek.
THG: How is rehearsal going? Do you two have a favorite style yet?
Derek: We've done one latin and one ballroom style so far. Jen has been completely amazing at both. Usually a celeb is stronger in one or the other but not her. We just have to work at keeping her stamina up during the faster paced dances.
