Sadie Robertson recently had to switch partners on Dancing with the Stars, and the Duck Dynasty heiress seems thrilled to trade in Mark Ballas for Derek Hough this week.

A new rule on the popular dancing series calls for partners to switch mid-season.

There have been reports that the high school student was a little nervous while waiting to find out who her temporary Dancing with the Stars partner would be. Apparently, there was one pro she really didn't want to be paired with — Val Chmerkovskiy.

According to Wetpaint, the fan favorite said she was “intimidated” by Val. She shared her thoughts on the dancing pro during an episode of The Badie Show, a YouTube documentary she created with fellow competitor Bethany Mota to share their DWTS experience.

Robertson said that she gets “nervous” around Chmerkovskiy, and Mota concurred, saying he can be really “intense.”

“Yeah, I’m, like, intimidated by him. I really am,” Sadie said, with a nervous giggle. “I don’t know, he’s so scary to me.”

Chmerkovskiy has been paired with Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish, but he'll dance with Back to the Future star Lea Thompson during the big switcharoo.

Derek, a five-time Mirror Ball Trophy champion, has been staying with the Duck Dynasty clan in Louisiana, and he and Sadie are having a great time riding four-wheelers and getting in some shooting practice in between their practice sessions.
