'DWTS' Judge Julianne Hough Will Show No Mercy for Brother Derek

julianne hough derekSeason 19 of Dancing With the Stars starts in two days and the excitement is about an unbearable as the fact that Maks Chmerkovskiy will not be returning since he retired after that dazzling win and season with Meryl Davis. We can at least be happy that we have Julianne Hough back, though this time as a judge.

We already know that Karina Smirnoff isn't happy about this decision for the pro and sister of Derek to judge since her brother will be competing. He is however dancing with some You Tube star named Bethany Mota. Never heard of her either, so I think he's at a disadvantage purely based on that. Julianne, however, has some harsh words for her bro.


Julianne is going to be tougher on Derek than the others. She said:

People are afraid about me judging my brother, but I'm going to be even harder on him.

I always say he is [good at] the technical, intricate, really detailed stuff -- but sometimes you need some show. Sometimes you need a little bit of pizzazz.

Ouch. She's already dissing Derek's style of choreography. If you ask me, Derek is in trouble. He kind of needed someone with a soft spot for him as a judge, but Julianne isn't going to be it. On judging, she added:

Sometimes honesty is not necessarily what you want to hear, but if somebody's actually being honest, it means that they care.

I think the thing that I hope the fans know, and of course the dancers know, is that we did grow up together, and every day we do have each other's backs. But with my new role, I do want to be able to say what I need to say. ... it always comes from a loving place. It's never malicious, I never am just being cruel.

Hmm ... if I were Derek, I'd still be worried.

What do you think of Julianne as judge? Do you think she really will be harsher on Derek?
