10 Athletes Who've Dominated the 'Dancing With the Stars' Ballroom

"I couldn't really bring much of any of my skating to the floor," Harding tells to TooFab after Monday's semi-final.

"Dancing with the Stars" semi-finalists Tonya Harding, Adam Rippon and NFL star Josh Norman were beaming with both joy and relief when TooFab caught up with them after Monday's brutal elimination.

First through to the season finale were Adam and partner Jenna Johnson, followed by Tonya and Sasha Farber, and Josh and Sharna Burgess -- which means figure skaters and football players continue to dominate the dance competition. But Tonya told TooFab the theory that her and Adam's figure-skating backgrounds have put them at an unfair advantage is simply "not true."

"I couldn't really bring much of any of my skating to the floor because everything is ice over there, and this is a floor that's like waves," she said.

Of her relationship with Margot Robbie -- who played the Olympian in "I, Tonya" -- Tonya said, "She's been filming. She was gonna come [to 'Dancing With the Stars'], but she hasn't been able to." Allison Janney, who won an Oscar earlier this year for her portrayal of Tonya's mom in the biopic, came to a previous taping to support the athlete.

Adam, who competed in the 2018 Winter Olympics, told TooFab his strategy for getting to the semi-final has always been to have fun.

"I haven't been focusing too much on where I would go in the competition because it's been so much fun getting to dance with Jenna every single day," he said. "And [the fact] that we're here, it kind of feels like it all happened all at once that we only have one week left, so I'm trying to soak in the whole experience and just enjoy the last week that Jenna and I get to dance together."

Adam's Olympic bestie who got eliminated Monday night -- Mirai Nagasu -- once compared him to "Mean Girls" character Regina George, but Adam assured TooFab he was not a total diva.

"I'm like a diva, plus a dumpster fire," he joked.

Josh Norman, cornerback for the Washington Redskins, also made it through to next week's finale -- but his dancing might not be over when Season 26 wraps. "Magic Mike," anyone? He's got the body and the moves, and it sounds like he's not opposed!
