In an interview with PEOPLE, Sailor said that she was "terrified" at first when she prepared to join the show.

“I didn’t want to at first, honestly. I was terrified. It was a very scary thing for me. The whole idea of having to be live on stage, be on TV dancing, that’s something I’ve never done before," she said.
