Jenna Johnson is one of the coolest people we know and she just became even cooler with a super inspirational post for her fans.
Sharing a pic of her slimmer figure on Instagram, the former Dancing With The Stars pro wasn’t bragging about her new figure, but simply giving fans a much-needed pep talk about their body image.
“I was just cleaning out my closet and I came across these jeans. A year and a half ago these were the only jeans I could comfortably fit into and I wore them almost everyday,” she shares. “Recently, I’ve been a bit down on myself and constantly comparing myself to others thinking ‘ugh I wish I looked like that’ but it’s moments like just barely that reinforce my appreciation for how far I’ve come.”
She adds, “This isn’t meant to brag or boast but a reminder that YOU are your worst enemy…. but you should also be your own biggest cheerleader. So when we do have days of discouragement we are able to remind ourselves how truly awesome we are… and how far we’ve come!”
“I’m also working on being more confident in my own skin so I’m trying to use little to no make up and no filters,” Jenna shares. “We shall see how long that lasts ;) Have a wonderful Wednesday!!”
We love everything about this post!
Pro dancer Jenna Johnson just announced that she’s taking this season off of Dancing With the Stars.
She posted the news on Twitter ahead of tomorrow’s cast announcement.
“I would like to personally announce to all my incredible fans that I have decided to take this season off of #DWTS,” Jenna wrote. “After the best 4 years of my life, I am ready to take some time for myself, get rejuvenated and prep for my next venture…this isn’t the last you are going to see of me.”
She continued, “Thank you ALL for continuing to love and support me through this journey!! I’m beyond grateful and love my #DWTS family…so to all the competitors this season…I can’t wait to cheer you on in the Ballroom!!”

Jake Miller and Jenna Johnson just can’t stop!
Earlier this year, when a fan account suggested that the musician and dancer should be partnered up on Dancing With The Stars, both Jake and Jenna were definitely for it!
Now, with the 24th season quickly approaching, Jenna and Jake met up inside the Oscars & OK! Magazine Party, fueling more rumors that they possibly could be teamed up for it.
Jenna captioned with their pic: “Future DWTS Partners??????”
JJJ definitely would not complain one bit about Jake and Jenna being partnered up for season 24…but could they actually?
Jake‘s Overnight tour was postponed for the time being, so, there’s definitely a possibility that this might just happen. Crossing fingers it does!
Paris Berelc, Keo Motsepe and Gleb Savchenko are also pictured below at the party.
Dancing With The Stars is just weeks away from announcing the new celebrity cast — but what about the pros?
While we’re not just guessing on which pros are returning (we have a pretty good feeling about a lot of them), we just may see some surprises in the series’ 24th season.

“I think everyone else is coming back,” the EPs dished in a recent interview. But how likely is that?
JJJ‘s made a cool little playbook on the DWTS Pros – their wins, partners and the actual odds of them being a pro on the new season.

We knew that DWTS pros Jenna Johnson and Lindsay Arnold go way back (because she told us), but now that fact is even cuter because of Lindsay‘s birthday!
Now officially 23, Lindsay is getting birthday wishes from Jenna with a super cute throwback pic that you will ‘awww’ over.
Happy Birthday to the gorgeous blonde on my left who I can’t seem to get rid of after 18 years!” Jenna jokes in the Instagram post.
“One of my greatest joys in life has been growing up with you by my side. You are loyal. You are HILARIOUS.”
“And you are full of love and advice for me. Thank you for being one of my absolute favorite parts about life on the road. Can’t wait for many more memories with you Linds.”

Happy belated birthday to Keo Motsepe!
The Dancing With The Stars pro dancer turned 27 earlier this week, on Thanksgiving Day!
While he couldn’t have a big bash or anything on Thanksgiving, he did gather up all his DWTS pals including Jenna Johnson, Sasha Farber, Lindsay Arnold, Emma Slater, and Brittany Cherry for a big dinner out at Fig & Olive in Los Angeles on the weekend.
“Thank you for the birthday wishes and happy thanksgiving,” Keo wrote on his Twitter just days before.
Keo will be on the DWTS Tour this winter so be sure to go and see him kill it!
