Arianne's first TV appearance was a success. She was chatty and giggly. Typical of her style, in the last crucial moment she went for broke declining a bank offer of $11,500. It was worth it.

As you know, next week will be the opening episode of DWTS. Here's what executive producer Peter Beck had to say about Arianne:
Here's this person we've never heard of, she's beautiful. You think chess player, you think nerdy, but you take one look at this girl in a latin outfit...She speaks five languages. If she can entice the world's numbers one and three, as long as the audience members don't start hitting one another . . .
I'm not sure that she actually speaks 5 languages. I think it's only English and maybe some phrases of everything else. Read the The Age report.
