    Kevin VDP won Belgian "Dancing with the stars"

    Tonight Kevin Van der Perren won the competition "Sterren op de dansvloer" (equivalent to "Dancing with the stars")! Kevin wasn't particularly known for artistry or dance moves when he was a competitive figure skater, but with stunning off-ice, out-of-nowhere (quadruple) jumps on the dancefloor, a ton of natural charisma and a lot of commitment and hard work he realized something he's worked for his whole life: he got the GOLD (and a huge trophy).

    Kevin.

    Suppose he finds it easier to relax and express feelings when he doesn't have to do hard techs. Also helps dancing with a competent good looking partner

    Video is in the article.

    Is it just rumours or serious that he goes for pairs skating?

    I thought it was nothing but a rumour, but then I heard him talking about skating pairs in a television show. He hadn't got the chance to train full-out (lately) due to the training for Dancing With.... but he said he was determined to continue his efforts as soon as the programme had finished.

    Weird idea though - but you never know
