Dancing With the Stars Dancer Derek Hough Offers Men’s Tips at Trevor Live 2012

The fabulously talented and handsome Derek Hough of Dancing With The Stars was on hand for the Trevor Project’s awards banquet and gala, Trevor Live. The evening was dedicated to celebrating and promoting awareness of the Trevor Project’s message of acceptance and support to LGBT youth. “My friends are very much involved,” Hough said, “and they asked me if I’d come support. Actually, they asked me if I would dance!…I said I wanna come and at least support.”

Ever the busy man, Hough just wrapped up performing on DWTS’s 15th season and was acting as presenter with former Season 13 partner Ricki Lake at the evening’s
proceedings. “I can’t stop!” he confessed when asked if he’s taking a break with the conclusion of the dance show’s season. “I’ve been back in the gym—I lost like ten pounds on the show so I’m trying to gain back the weight and get back into it!”

Hough, apart from his world-class dancing, is known for his gorgeously slicked-back blonde locks. “I like Tancho,” he said. “It’s a wax for your hair that I like a lot.” As for footwear, the fleet-footed Hough prefers Creative Recreation. Thanks for the advice and for your good work, Derek!
