Nikki Bella does not need to lose weight by any means, but the Wwe Superstar is shedding a few pounds as a result of her stint on “Dancing with the Stars.” Bella, who is partnered with pro dancer Artem Chigvintsev for the 25th season of the ABC celebrity ballroom competition, told E! News she has already lost five pounds while training for the show and that she “needs” to keep it off. While Nikki is happy with the five-pound weight loss, she says she has to balance it with keeping her booty “really big.”

Bella told E! she is eating more carbohydrates than ever but that the intense “Dancing With the Stars” training has her flexing her muscles throughout her rehearsals with Artem and burning constant calories, almost like a machine.

"It's like a really weird burn,” Nikki told the celebrity gossip site.

Nikki’s biggest fan

Nikki Bella is engaged to fellow pro wrestler John Cena. While John wasn’t in the studio audience for his lady's ”Dancing With the Stars” premiere night dance, he is—not surprisingly—her biggest fan as he cheers from the sidelines. Not only did the wrestling legend post on social media to say how proud he was of Nikki following her “DWTS” premiere, but he texted her after seeing her first “Dancing With the Stars” dance to tell her he was “wowed” by it. Bella revealed that it is a “turn on” for John when he sees her pushing herself to her limits on the dance floor.

Week 1 workout

Nikki Bella danced to the Pink song “So What?” for her first dance with Chigvintsev and she even included a few signature WWE moves into the tango routine—including a body slam.

The “Total Bellas” star wore a red outfit which seemed to point to her Monday night wrestling "red brand," and she landed as one of the highest scorers of the night with 20 out of 30 points on the “Dancing with the Stars” premiere, according to Wrestling Inc.

Nikki Bella will continue to burn the calories as the milestone “Dancing With the Stars” season has only just begun. And for her second week, she could lose even more (unnecessary) weight as she does double duty with two required dances. Nikki and Artem will dance a ballroom style dance on Monday night a Latin dance on Tuesday night as part of a special two-night elimination week. Two of the 13 “Dancing With the Stars” couples will go home this week, but it would be a surprise to see Nikki Bella end her run on the show so soon.

“Dancing with the Stars” airs on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
