Season 12 of the show Dancing with the Stars has started and already brought lots of surprises. One of them was Karate Kid actor Ralph Macchio on the dance floor. Not only did he show that he knows how to dance, but he is now in the lead of the competition. Besides Macchio, names like Wendy Williams, Hines Ward and Derek Hough are in the spotlight.
Ward is most known for playing American football as wide receiver. His team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. The player said that he’s been training intensively to dance on the show. “I’m having to apply my football ethic to my dance. I’ve watched other football players compete in the past so it’s like watching film to prepare”, said Ward.
One of the stars who didn’t go so well on the show’s premiere was the actress Wendy Williams. She rehearsed a ‘cha cha cha’ to dance on the opening night, when no one is being evaluated to get eliminated, but got a little stiff during her moves. The score can go up to 30, but Williams only reached 13 points.
Someone went missing
Dancing with the Stars is known for bringing people who aren’t professional dancers but who learn how to dance and impress the public. Even so, the casting also includes some professionals. One of them who’s been on the show since season 5 is Derek Hough, but he hasn’t cared to join on the premiere night.
Rumors say that this year he chose to spend his time with his girlfriend, Cheryle Cole, and others say that he’s preparing for the film “Cobu 3D”, which would leave out of time to practice the dancing. Either way, his absence has been noted by the audience since all of the other pros have returned to season 12 of DWTS.
