As for the next season of DWTS, Gleb says he still doesn’t know if he’ll get the call to participate. But if he does, his ideal partner would be an individual with a little dance experience who is “someone that people like, relatable with a great story, hard-working and down-to-earth, so she can actually take all the s–t from the Russian entertainer, you know?” He punctuates his list with a laugh.
But regardless of what happens, Gleb doesn’t have much to complain about these days. “I love working, I love dancing, I love creating and I love being in the studio,” he enthuses. “It’s such an amazing gift that I have from the universe, and being from Russia, now I have an American passport, I’m on Dancing With the Stars. I’m like, ‘Oh, my god, life is all happening!'”
