Each season we see a strong camaraderie develop among the cast members on "Dancing With the Stars," along with a healthy dose of competition. But this season, some of that competitiveness is actually between a current and a former contestant. Edyta Sliwinska is the only professional dancer to participate in all 10 seasons of "Dancing with the Stars." Soap star Aiden Turner is her partner this time around.

Back in the fall of 2007, she glided Cameron Mathison around the dance floor.

Cameron once shared scenes with Aiden on "All My Children." Now they share the same "Dancing" partner.

"Cameron just texted me right now wishing me well. He told me to be myself, have fun, work hard, and don't beat him," said Aiden. "He got to number five. I said, 'That's why I'm doing this show, Cameron, to show you up and come in fourth or third.' Then I can say, 'Sorry man I must be a better dancer than you are.'"

Aiden and Edyta landed in the bottom three in week one of "Dancing."

"I still thought that he did a great job, and I see a lot of potential in Aiden. I see how hard he works," said Edyta.

Joining them in at the bottom of the leaderboard were TV reality star Kate Gosselin and astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

Week two of "Dancing" kicks off Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
