The Bachelor babe is ready to rumba!

She might not have captured Arthur Green’s heart on The Bachelor NZ, but this time around Chrystal Chenery is gunning for the win on Dancing with the Stars NZ!

The leggy blonde has been training hard with pro partner Jonny Williams and their efforts have been paying off on the dancefloor, with the duo scoring relatively high marks for their dances so far.

“I want to win 100 percent. I’m not here to f**k spiders,” she tells Woman’s Day.

Taking home the title won’t be easy, and Chrystal confesses to struggling with the rigorous demands of the show. However, it’s her mix of “attitude” and “talent” that she thinks will see her through.

“I’m 95 percent attitude and five percent talent. I’ve been that way my whole life and I think that will give me the edge on the show,” she says.
