In a TikTok video posted by Good Morning America, Giudice was asked which show she thinks will be “more challenging.” On Sept. 8, it was announced by multiple outlets that Giudice would be joining the cast of “Dancing With The Stars” for season 31.
“I would have to think ‘Dancing With Stars,'” Giudice explained. “The reason why is because I heard you have to put a lot of work into it, a lot of dedication, and you know, it takes a lot, so I’m all about that. I’m all about being competitive and working hard. I’m not afraid to work hard, and I know it’s going to take a lot of endurance and strength, and I have that.”
Season 31 of “Dancing With The Stars” is set to premiere on September 19 on Disney+.
