'Dancing with the Stars' ABC Season 19, Bethany Mota Ankle Injury Getting Worse Shares Partner Derek Hough (VIDEO)
"Dancing with the Stars" Season 19 contestant Bethany Mota has been working hard on her moves with partner Derek Hough. The 18-year-old will be performing to "Singing in the Rain" this week with Hough.
The big news however is Mota's ankle injury. "Bethany's ankle is not doing great. We're wrapping it and icing it. The problem is you've got to stay off of it, but we don't have time for that. It's unfortunate," Derek wrote in his TVGuide blog.
He added, "We're doing everything we can to try not to make it worse. It was getting a little worse Thursday when she was on it. I'm adjusting the choreography to favor it a little bit and I'm trying to be conscious about it, like I'd go, "Go to the right, oh, actually, go to your left." Hopefully she'll be feeling better by Monday."
Lets hope Bethany can fight through her injuries and give a strong performance this week to stay in the competition. She has been posting videos to YouTube to show the behind the scenes of her experiences. You can check out her latest video posted above.
"OH. MY GOSH. To say I missed you guys is an understatement. I know it has been waaaay too long since a new video but I've been working super hard for you guys on things that I think you will love :) new Back to school video is coming soon!" She wrote.
Bethany added, "Thanks to everyone for understanding. Here's a little look at what dance rehearsal is like for DWTS! Be sure to tune in monday night to see Derek and I perform! loooooove you guys so much :)"
