'Dancing With the Stars': Rob Kardashian Says 'Whole Family' Attending Finals

The Season 13 dark horse talks about how his experience on the show will translate to family's reality franchise and abandoning his plans for going shirtless.

Week 9 of Dancing With the Stars was a big one for Rob Kardashian.

The oft-overlooked brother of the reality TV family catapulted his way to the top of the leader board and a spot in the two-night finale with a crowd-pleasing Samba and his highest scores of the season.

After the penultimate results, he told reporters backstage about how the whole experience will find its way into the Kardashians' several E! series.

"We're filming two of them right now," Rob said, "Khloe and Lamar and the family show [Keeping Up With the Kardashians]."

Khloe and Lamar, which follows one of his sisters and her husband Lamar Odom, will carry the bulk of the Dancing With the Stars footage according to Rob -- not that he sees much of a difference.

"We have so many shows going on, it's like the same thing I guess," Rob said, laughing. "All our shows incorporate our entire family and all of our lives. I don't know what will be going on in the months to come. Things happen real quick, and we just kind of go with the flow."

Their lives should convene during this week's two-part finale. Though his entire immediate family, including show alum Kim Kardashian, have attended separately throughout the season, Rob says "the whole family" will make it to the finals.

"They better," he said.

So what of Rob's plans to imitate Cheryl Burke's previous, particularly cut partner, Gilles Marini and take of his shirt during the finals?

"No, my goal is not going to happen," he admitted. "I don't like the scale. Once this is all done, I'll hit the gym and we'll see."

A fully-clothed Rob will make his first play for the season 13 mirrorball during Monday's broadcast of Dancing With the Stars.
