His own cooking show after Dancing with the Stars
The rugby star admits he has bitten by the TV bug and would love to land his own cooking show in the future after becoming a fan favorite on Dancing with the Stars
When Dancing with the Stars ends, Jordan Conroy plans to introduce his own cooking show.
The Rugby 7s star is well known in the sports world, but his profile has actually risen since appearing on the hit RTE show.
Jordan was on RTE 2’s celebrity edition of the dating show Pulling with My Parents last year, and this, combined with his presence on our televisions every Sunday night, means he has been bitten by the TV bug.
Jordan says he’s “absolutely” open to more TV work and would love to lead his own cooking show in the future.
“I’ve gotten a taste for TV after doing Pulling with my Parents and Dancing with the Stars,” he told RSVP Live.
“To be honest, the next thing I’d like to do is host a cooking show.”
Jordan’s TV ambitions will have to wait a little longer, as he is still a competitor on Dancing with the Stars.
People offering a maximum of 30 points on Sunday night’s show, he placed in the bottom two. However, since Grainne Seoige and John Nolan resigned from the competition, the judges decided to save him and fellow partner Salome Chacha.
Jordan said he wasn’t shocked to be in the dance-off after his incredible contemporary dancing performance, because he knew how unpredictable performances like Dancing with the Stars can be at times.
“Last week, after seeing Erica [Cody] and Missy [Keating] in the dance-off, I got the impression that it’s a highly unpredictable show, so you have to expect the unexpected,” he said.
“But it’s not a nice place to be.” Grainne was one of my favorite actors, so going to contend with her was just not fun at all. That is the terrible part of the show.
“Obviously, I’m happy to make it another week, so I can’t really complain.”
The dance-off may place a lot of pressure on contestants, and Jordan says his athletic background helped him deal with it.
He said to us: “Yes, that definitely helped a lot because there are moments when it’s done or dies – you have to win a match, you have to win that final. It’s a feeling I’ve had so many times before.
“Salome was also a great help; she advised me to keep relaxed and just pull it out of the bag.
