Adam spoke with OK! exclusively last month about going into DWTS quite worried and unsure of how he will do on the dance floor. “You know, I am a performer, but attached to my ankles I unfortunately have two sloppy, floppy biscuits,” he said. “Wet ones.

Tonya, who has been experiencing a career resurgence due to the Oscar-winning movie I, Tonya, received a ton of support during her time on DWTS, notably from Allison Janney, who showed up for a taping of the show back in April.
