Pavelka, 32, continued to gush the next day.

"Kate's a great person. I was really happy to see her having fun with Tony [Dovolani], her dance partner," he wrote Sunday.

Pavelka is ready for Monday's premiere.

"Just finished almost 7hr practice with @chelsiekayh She kicked my butt, elbowed my eye and put me through the ringer! Felt Great!" he also wrote Sunday of his partner Chelsie Hightower.

He also got the requisite spray tan.

"It's crunch time now… Im getting an orangy colored spray tan. For camera purposes of course… LOL!" he wrote.

Pavelka's mom and dad are in Los Angeles to support his dance debut — and they're spending some quality time with his fiancee, Vienna Girardi.

"Had dinner at Asia de cuba with Jake's parents. Such amazing food," Girardi wrote on Twitter Sunday night.

Girardi, a Florida native, is still getting used to living on the west coast.

"Exploring LA. We moved in last night to our apartment. Love the area. Hate the traffic," she Twittered last Friday.
