Ariana Madix ‘Emotional’ Ahead of Dancing With the Stars Finale

Emotions are running high ahead of the Dancing with the Stars Season 32 finale. The last hurrah of the season will see five partnerships going head to head, with scores carrying over from last week.

The Mirrorball trophy could go to anyone this season. One likely candidate for the Season 32 crown would be Ariana Madix, along with her partner, Pasha Pashkov. Ariana’s scores have only improved since the season premiere.

Beyond that, Ariana has the support of nearly every Vanderpump Rules viewer on her side. If it came down to sheer fan support, Ariana just might take the cake. Still, Ariana’s feeling the nerves.

Ariana’s not ready to give up Dancing with the Stars

Ariana spoke with Bravo’s The Daily Dish about her feelings ahead of the finale. “I am emotional,” she shared. “On one hand, it’s like it’s starting to hit me that it’s all coming to an end, and it’s been such an incredibly beautiful experience and one that has been transformative for me, and that I will treasure forever, no matter what happens.”

Ariana continued, “Also the rehearsal process of every day with my partner for four or five hours a day and just knowing that that’s just not how my life is going to be anymore. But, on the other hand, I’m just so excited for the finale.” Ariana teased her upcoming freestyle, noting how excited she was for everyone to see it.

On top of that, Ariana and Pasha have a redemption dance to perform. At the prospect of winning, Ariana said, “I would faint … I would be so over the moon … If we were able to take the Mirrorball, I just think that the emotions — we’re both criers — so both he and I would be total wrecks. The happiness would just be on a level 20.”

The Dancing with the Stars Season 32 finale airs Tuesday, December 5, at 8/7c on ABC and Disney+.
