Paula Deen is paired up with Mark Ballas this week on Dancing with the Stars – and she’s a bit worried about that fact.

“Oh, Mark. Oh no,” the celebrity chef tells the dance pro in a preview clip exclusive to PEOPLE. “You’re not going to be able to take me … you’re so edgy.”

Deen, 68, tells Ballas, 29, that she’s “scared” of him because she doesn’t know if he has the “patience” to make it through Switch-Up Week with her.

“Girl, I’ve got patience tattooed on my wrist,” Ballas says, showing Deen his tattoo.

But even after he appeases her request to pick her up and turn her upside down “like you do [with] those other girls,” Deen – who is usually partnered with Louis Van Amstel – still isn’t sure Ballas is up for the task of teaching her a dance by Monday.

“He might need to go get the other arm tattooed with ‘more patience,’ ” she says.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. (ET) on ABC.
