Although she’s already won Dancing With the Stars twice, pro Cheryl Burke admits she faces some pretty tough competition as she and partner Emmitt Smith get ready for the upcoming All-Stars season — especially from the athletes.

“Everyone is really good. I’m just happy Emmitt is the only football player on the show,” Burke, 28, revealed at Macy’s 30th Anniversary Passport Glamorama event last Friday. “You have Apolo [Ohno], who is loved by everybody, Shawn [Johnson], and you have other sports players on the show, so I think it’s going to be between them.”

Meanwhile, Burke also admitted that rehearsing with Smith in Texas is going to be “tough.”

“You know, it’s tough, because we are going to be traveling back and forth,” she said. “But we did that six years ago, so I know we can do that.”

In fact, Burke — who won Dancing with Smith in 2006 — says the pros of dancing in the Lone Star state outweigh the cons.

“It’s actually kind of nice to be away from whatever is happening here in L.A.,” she said, “because I can really focus on what I need to do. I’m in total work mode.”

And speaking of work mode, Burke remains as busy as ever. In addition to working her booty off on the dance floor, the California native was just named the new face of Ideology, a new line of activewear.

“It’s actually a great, affordable, line,” she said.

“You can actually wear it to go grocery shopping.”
