Married dance instructors Pete, 32, and Courtney, 31, believe their profession is going to give them an advantage.
“If there’s one thing we bring to this competition, it’s style,” says Pete.
Courtney adds: “People underestimate dancers. But dancers are resilient. We’re always the first to arrive and last to leave.”
The couple, who fell in love in high school, have a house in the foothills of Victoria’s Dandenong Ranges with a number of unsafe features that need updating – something they are especially conscious of now they are parents to 1-year-old son Casper.
They’re also very competitive. “We’re not really interested in second place,” Pete says.
