Here is the interview in Stuff Magazine and more incredible videos.
STUFF: Was it always your dream to teach clueless celebrities like Ian Ziering how to dance?
CHERYL: In the beginning I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it. When I started, I was very camera-shy, and I didn’t know how to handle myself. But I learned every day and got more and more comfortable.
Do you get to pick which dork you dance with?
They won’t tell us who we’re dancing with until we actually meet them, the day we start rehearsing.
Were you shocked to learn that you’d be foxtrotting with Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith? I actually didn’t know who Drew was. And it was the same with Emmitt—I had to Google him.

Did any of them piss you off with their overall suckiness?
It was hard to teach Drew ballroom dancing. He was able to hear the music and dance on time, but when it came to actually learning the discipline of ballroom dancing, it was a challenge. With Emmitt, it was hard for him to learn the grace, since he comes from a football background. But each of them had the goal of winning the competition, and they knew what it took.
Everyone is constantly being judged on the show. Has that made you a better dancer?
I’ve always been judged as a dancer because I’ve competed all my life. I’m used to it. When I enter this competition, it’s not about me; it’s about my partner. I just want to make sure that he feels comfortable and confident.
She soon had Emmitt’s feet really comfortable. Here is the dance that won it all on Dancing with the Stars.

Do you ever show off your moves at clubs?
I like to go out to more loungy places, where people can have a conversation. Once in a while I’ll get up and dance a little bit, but I don’t like to dance 24 hours a day.
Do you typically go for guys who can dance?
For me, it doesn’t matter as long as we get along and have fun together. I try not to get involved with other dancers, because you’re in the same business. It’s kind of difficult if you see each other all the time.
So it’s not a turnoff if a guy can’t shake what his mama gave him?
Oh, not at all.
Hear that, spazzes? She’s game!
