Juan Pablo De Pace Embedded His Name On Dancing With The Stars
Just into the third week of the 27th season of DWTS and it seemed like Juan had already set his eyes on the big trophy. Pace, as his name suggests, was setting up the pace and turning the heat among the competitors.
Performing a sizzling Samba along with his partner Cheryl Burke, the couple raised the temperatures of the theatre by some degrees with their routine. Dancing to the tunes of Ni Tu Ni Yo by Jennifer Lopez featuring Gente De Zona, Juan looked at ease with the Latin dance. And he seems to have not only impacted on viewers mind but also on judges who scored the routine a perfect 30, first of this season.
It was not just the dance routine that caught the eyes of the viewers as also his story of struggle he had to face during his journey for the top. He opened up about the bullying he suffered during his early years. He expressed that he was treated awkardly just because he was Latino and was a bit artistic.
The artisticness inside him had, however, done him little harm as not only had he established him in Hollywood but had established himself as a strong contender for the DWTS trophy.

And the crowd were bawling their eyes out when it was revealed that Juan's mom had just won her battle against cancer. He further confessed that the dance (he performed the tango) reminded him of his mother's 'warrior spirit' and that she inspired him every single day.
The viewers were quite surprised as they weren't expecting the emotional rollercoaster and many tweeted out about how they were inspired by the story. Some even shared their stories and the fact that they could relate to the dancer's feelings towards his mother.
His mother was there to support him during his rehearsal and his final performance as she witnessed her son's graceful movements. Yes, that was his final performance as Juan got eliminated alongside another contestant, Joe Amabile on 13 November 2018.
But Juan didn't leave on a negative note as he had already won the hearts of the audience and judges with his final dance and shared his gratefulness for being able to do the thing he loved (he loves to dance) in front of millions of people.

The numerous wife-mentioned pictures of them on his Instagram demonstrated that Andrea might be his possible girlfriend. Juan even wished on her birthday in July 2017, labeling her as 'WIFE,' and showered her with praises.

Is Juan Pablo Di Pace Gay?
Because of his confined dating status, the Latin American actor is often professed to be gay by his fans and followers. But, he has not publicly confessed as a gay to the media.
Despite not opening up about his sexuality, he does believe in gay relationships. Juan is a supporter of a gay marriage, which he revealed through a reply on his Twitter. Replying to one of his Twitter followers in October 2012, he exhibited his support towards gay marriage stating that marriage is for all.
However, it is inaccurate to assume him to be gay just because he has a private personal life and believes in a concept that marriage is for all sexes. The actor could be biding his time and looking for a perfect partner to spend the rest of his life.
