Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater appeared on Wednesday’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” where the “Dancing With The Stars” winner reflected on his ballroom journey. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Jennings won season 24 of “Dancing With The Stars” on Tuesday. During the finale, the professional football player received a perfect score for his first routine of the night, a Viennese Waltz, and then again for his second performance, a flawless freestyle. Since taking home the Mirrorball trophy, Jennings visited Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest to discuss his “Dancing With The Stars” win, where he gave the talk show hosts a glimpse of his brilliant Viennese Waltz and talked about his time on the show.

On his ballroom experience, Jennings said, “It was hard. I’ve never heard of a frame outside of a pitcher frame before ballroom dance, and it took me forever to figure that out.” Slater, who has danced as a professional on the show for seven seasons, praised the athlete for his hard work during the gruelling rehearsals. “He’s a perfectionist. He works so hard naturally in what he does, as a football player,” she noted. “Translate that into dancing, he never wanted to stop, he wanted to get everything right. He was the best student.”

And on what’s next for Jennings, he said, “I’m doing the tour. I’m excited to do that. I’ll continue to train. I train every single morning.” The star then spoke about his progression as a dancer over the course of the season. “Starting off the show, I say this all the time, if you had told me I would have been in the finale, I wouldn’t have believed you,” Jennings shared. “There’s no way in the world. This is something foreign to me, I don’t know what I’m doing, I’m just trying to get the direction on the dance floor. It’s pretty rough. I’ve come a long way.” Watch the video below!
