“Dancing with the Stars” partners Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd appeared on Wednesday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show” to discuss their reality competition series. Watch the full interview below!

The former “Bachelor” star noted on the daytime talk show that dancing for sport is “a totally different level” than he’s used to, adding, “The first time you learn all these moves, everything’s very complicated, and most positions that Peta asks me to do are painful physically. Most of the time I’m just always in my head trying to think of what to do next, and it’s hard to try to actually dance.” Viall added about partner Murgatroyd, “It’s very hard but she’s very patient with me.”

“He hasn’t performed at all,” Murgatroyd noted about Viall’s background compared to the other celebrity contestants. “Most of the people on this season have actually got performance experience so it’s a really tough season, and he came out there and really did a good job.” The pro dancer went on to talk about competing on the series less than 10 weeks after giving birth to her first chid. “I think it’s good for mothers to get back out there and keep doing what they love to do,” she said, but added, “I’m exhausted, to be honest with you. I am so tired, between feeding every four hours, racing home.”

DeGeneres went on to point out that Murgatroyd was looking particularly busty as a result of nursing, to which the dancer joked, “I have to tape these things down now.” “Do you try not to do bouncy dances?” DeGeneres asked, and Murgatroyd admitted, “I directly asked for no Jive first week.” Watch the full interview below!
