Hasselhoff spoofed his two past jobs as an actor before shaking his hips in anticipation of the season 11 premiere.
The first promos of "Dancing with the Stars" is out and David Hasselhoff is the first one. The actor who participates in the eleventh season is making fun of himself by running slowly like in "Baywatch" and calling Kit like in "Knight Rider".
Hoff is paired with Kym Johnson who won last two season when partnered with Donny Osmond. Asked what they would name themselves, Hoff said, "Think that we're going to go with, 'Get Down Under with Team Hoff," in reference to Johnson's native Australia.
The actor is also self-campaigning for votes by appearing on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" where he told the crowd that he's rehearsing for Cha Cha Cha as the first dance. He also said that he's taking the competition seriously by practicing five hours a day. Despite the effort, Hoff is not optimistic. "I'm not going to win," he said. "If I was a betting man, and I was watching a game in the dressing room. I'd bet on everyone else."
"Dancing with the Stars" begins Monday, September 20.
