Although the dancer commented that nothing was “out of the ordinary” on the show, he did reveal one specific challenge that they didn’t air.

“The schedule [was] super wild,” he said. “One time they sent us here to watch a Broadway show and we had to do a number inspired from that and we didn’t get to see the show until Thursday so we didn’t start the dance until Friday so that was a bit stressful. They didn’t show the full stressfulness of that particular challenge.”
