Hines Ward: Battle of the Dancing With The Stars Athletes
Chris Jericho and Hines Ward battle it out on week 5 of Dancing with the Stars tonight (April 18, 2011).
Chris Jericho and Hines Ward are the two remaining athletes on Dancing with the Stars after Sugar Ray Leonard was voted out. They are very different guys from very different athletic worlds, but they are both great examples of why athletes often do very well on DWTS.
Hines Ward has won the Super Bowl (including the Super Bowl MVP) and is one of the top receivers in football. He might also be the best football player/athlete to ever compete on DWTS. He as some big shoes to fill including Emmitt Smith who actually won the trophy during his season on the show, but last week Carrie Ann said that she felt Hines has replaced Emmitt as the “twinkle toes” on the show. Hines just gets better and better each week and right now has to be considered one of the top 2 or 3 contestants who have a real shot at winning this season of Dancing with the Stars.
Chris Jericho is a pro wrestler and while the outcome of the matches may be predetermined, you do have to be one hell of an athlete to pull off the moves they do night in and night out. Chris struggled a little at first due to his size and muscular bulk, but he seems to be getting better each week. This last week he did very well and now finds himself climbing up the Dancing With The Stars leaderboard. I don’t know how far he can go, but his ability to pick up the steps and his physical fitness keeping him in shape so he has the energy to give it his all each week should take him pretty deep.
You can see if Hines Ward continues to dominate and if Chris Jericho continues to improve live tonight at 8PM on ABC as Dancing with the Stars takes the air for the performance show.
