Keo Motsepe was eliminated on Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, and this season is the furthest he’s ever made it on the show. Despite some ups and downs, including injuries, Keo pushed through the adversity and made history with his achievements on the show. Plus, Keo challenged himself and danced with Nyle DiMarco during the team challenges this week, which made Dancing with the Stars history. Despite being proud of his partner, Motsepe is sad to see their journey come to an end.
According to a new Instagram post, Keo Motsepe is now revealing that he loves and adores Jodie Sweetin, and he’s so proud of everything they have accomplished together. Motsepe shared a sweet message on Instagram to let her know that he’s proud of her 10s.
“What can I say that hasn’t already been said? This season has been incredible and it was all because of you, Jodie Sweetin. You have been a blessing to me as a partner. Thank you so much for continually inspiring me. Thank you for your hard work, your persistence, your thoughtfulness, your goofiness, your friendship. Thank you for believing in me and putting your trust in me. I couldn’t imagine doing this with anyone else. You deserved every single 10 you got tonight. Thank you for going on this journey with me hand in hand. I love you! #TeamMoSweetFOREVER,” Keo Motsepe revealed on Instagram after their elimination, sharing that he has nothing but love and respect for his dance partner.
Even though Keo Motsepe may not be as famous as Derek Hough or Mark Ballas on Dancing with the Stars, he has been a professional member of the show for quite some time. Keo just manages to get eliminated rather early. But this season, he clearly made a name for himself despite public backlash. As it was revealed on Dancing With The Stars, Keo Motsepe was sad that some people thought that he was holding Sweetin back on the show. But she stood up for him, reminding him that they were a team. And thanks to their partnership, they got perfect scores.
Keo was previously revealed that he is from South Africa, and he knew that he wanted to be a dancer from the age of 5. Motsepe was born in Pretoria and grew up just outside of Johannesburg. During an interview with NPR, Keo Motsepe was asked whether there was any truth to the rumors that he is indeed a prince. As it turns out, Motsepe is indeed a prince and has responsibilities back in South Africa.
“I am a prince, yes sir, from my dad’s side. My grandpa was a prince of a province back in South Africa. My dad declined the position and gave it to my uncle, his younger brother. But because I’m my dad’s only son, I became a prince,” Motsepe revealed in an interview with NPR, adding later about his role as a prince, “There’s a responsibility to look after the area they’re from, they talk to the community and the community talks to my uncle about fixing the street here, the buildings there.”
Since Keo Motsepe did indeed do well on this season of Dancing with the Stars, one can imagine that he will get back on the next season of the show to compete once again. This experience was clearly a great one for both Motsepe and Jodie, so it makes sense that he would want to come back again.
What do you think of Keo Motsepe’s performance on this season of Dancing with the Stars? Do you want to see him return on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, which is expected to start airing this fall?
