I’m satisfied by the fact that I finally followed my heart and placed myself in a space that could see my presenting dream come true,” he shares. “Everyone in the Top 10 is talented so it’s nerve-wracking but I am looking forward to stepping outside of my comfort zone and allowing myself to stretch with every challenge on the show.”
