Maddie Ziegler is not one to deny that she is quite a competitive person. She was already used to being in a competitive environment, even at a young age, as she has worked really hard to nab all the top prizes in dance competitions. The teen’s competitiveness was also triggered during her Dance Moms stint because she revealed that she didn’t want to let Abby Lee Miller down, especially because she was her number one go-to dancer.
