WAIT... THERE'S MORE STUFF
If twinkle-toed Temepara George gets her way, league star Sione Faumuina could soon be tackling the samba.
The Dancing with the Stars hottie plans to continue the shimmy and shake long after the cameras stop rolling in the final of the hit TV show.
The former Silver Fern hopes to persuade her North Queensland Cowboys boyfriend to join her in her new passion.
"I think I'm going to have to con Sione into doing classes with me," laughed Temepara, who made the dance show's final three.
"He's a pretty good groover but in terms of ballroom I'd love to see him try, it would be hilarious."
Temepara, who is partnered by Aussie dance champ Stefano Olivieri, expected to be knocked out in the first round of Dancing with the Stars but now she is vowing to go all the way.
She has been overwhelmed by support from an army of fans, who are now viewing her for her skills on the dance floor rather than the netball court.
"It's been weird to be recognised as a dancer rather than a netballer," Temepara, 32, told Sunday News.
"My charity, Autism New Zealand, is keeping me glued together.
"I also want to do it for Stefano he's an amazing teacher and is a world champion dancer. I've won world championships too, so in that regard, we both know what it means to win.
"Sione was a bit skeptical about the show at first but now I'm in he reckons I'd better win!
"Hopefully, he'll be able to come over for the final whether I compete in it or not, we all get to dance during it."
Temepara, juggling dance rehearsals with training for the Northern Mystics trans-Tasman netball side, revealed she had to overcome a pain barrier to keep on the ballroom.
She was concerned she had broken her foot but kept quiet because she did not want a sympathy vote. A scan last week cleared her.
Having lost around four kilograms through training up to eight hours a day, the mum-of-two is surprisingly embarrassed by her size at the start of the Dancing with the Stars.
"It's funny because I saw my first performance doing the cha cha and I was a bit of a porker," she said, giggling.
Today the pocket rocket netball centre has her season opener with the Northern Mystics (against Christchurch-based Tactix at Auckland's WaitakereTrust Stadium).
Mystics team-mates assured her they are all voting for her in Dancing with the Stars and do not hope she gets kicked out so she can focus on netball.
And Temepara has no concerns about swapping the paso doble for killer passes.
"I find I can switch into things ... whether I'm dancing or training that's all I think about. I think I've got it down pat."
