Thats the challenge faced by dancer Dmitry Chaplin, who was eliminated from the competition on Thursday (July 20).
His solution: Conquering the in-studio heat wave by constantly bearing his chest during his dance routines.
Chaplin claims hes not doing the shirt stripping to get audience members hot and bothered but says that in his specialty, latin dance, It is customary to show off some chest.
As Chaplin puts it, I move my body a lot during my dances and I dont like to be bound to my shirt. I need to feel a breeze.
No one was complaining about Chaplins stripteasing ways during his last dance. The crowd went wild when he ripped his shirt off during the number.
