Remember When Rob Kardashian Slayed on Dancing With the Stars?

He actually did, though.

We haven’t seen Rob Kardashian in what feels like ages, but he’s still our favorite Kardashian. Back in 2011, he competed on Dancing With the Stars. Even though you probably forgot about it, it’s a big part of the reason you love him so much. His moves were sub-par but he made up for it with his adorable enthusiasm, a willingness to rock ridiculous costumes, and (sometimes) an unbreakable ~focus~.

He even scored runner-up, which is more than big sis Kim can say for when she competed in season 7 (and was the third star eliminated — woof).

Here’s how the DWTS slay is done, as exemplified by the Rob Kardashian.
