Audrina Patridge Reveals ‘DWTS’ Skills (VIDEO)

Boogeying in public before the Dancing with the Stars season premiere is usually strictly forbidden for new contestants, but Hills hottie Audrina Patridge and partner Tony Dovolani gave fans a sneak peek of their moves on Tuesday’s Lopez Tonight.

Though Audrina said she was “really nervous” and had “never performed in front of a live audience before” – the reality TV bikini-lover wasn’t bad! Lopez even bet $500 on Audrina, who said she’s working hard in the dance studio.

“I’m actually the perfectionist,” she said. “I want to keep doing it until I get it. [Tony] tells me to do less, take it down a notch.”

Tony said Audrina is a step up from his past partner, Kate Gosselin, with whom he clashed. Asked if he liked Audrina better, Tony told George: “They really shouldn’t even be in the same question!”
