Victor Ortiz tells Access Hollywood that he’s willing to do anything Lindsay Arnold tells him to do for Dancing With The Stars. He’s competitive and wants to win that Mirror Ball. Below is more…
“Anything she says, I’m willing to do,” he said of his training.
In an interview following Access Hollywood Live with Billy Bush, the boxer said his fellow contestants better watch out for him – and his competitive nature.
“I want to win it actually. I want to win this thing… my other competitive side of me is now kicking in,” he said.
And he hopes to be crowned the champ with the help of Lindsay.
“I have a wonderful partner. She is awesome. It’s her first season, I know she’s hungry to win this thing,” he told Billy. “I’m just obeying, she’s the coach right now, so I can’t let her down, so I’m definitely working as hard as I can.”
The intense dance training has come with a few hurdles for the athlete.
“I get frustrated sometimes and she works with me through it. At least she knows, I’m a work horse, so whatever is put on the table I’m going to deliver,” he continued.
Jacoby Jones might not be able to rehearse yet for Dancing With The Stars (he’s still healing from knee surgery), but, the Baltimore Raven is confident about not letting it hold him back even though his rehearsals will start late. Below is a take from Xfinity.
After the recent cast announcement, Jacoby exclusively told xfinityTV that because of minor knee surgery, he’ll be starting rehearsals with Karina a couple of weeks after the other celebrity dancers. But that won’t hold Jacoby back, as the confident athlete says about the dance competition, “I don’t know if I have any weaknesses.”
Football players have done so well on “DWTS” over the years. How do you think you’ll do?
We got a little footwork, we got a little rhythm, so it’ll pay off. I think it does take a lot of practice and hard work, so I’m ready for that.
Have you talked to Donald or Emmitt or anyone?
I haven’t talked to them yet. I’m waiting to see what they’re going to say, especially Donald! [who won Season 14]
Describe your strengths and weaknesses.
My strength is I have rhythm. [Laughs] I don’t know if I have any weaknesses. I don’t think. I never try to downsize. I go at it head first!
If Jacoby can’t rehearse yet like the other dancers, couldn’t this be a weakness? He has a lot of confidence though, has a hard work ethic, and is determined. It’s going to be interesting to see how well he dances for sure.

Sharna Burgess and Andy Dick were on KTLA today and asked all about Dancing With The Stars. Sharna says Andy is a whole other person than many think and she plans to show that on the dance floor. He has basic rhythm, he can count music, and he can learn choreography. He will go further in this competition than many think (Bring it Guys!). Andy is a hoot as always. He says he’s learning to Fox Crawl instead of to Fox Trot. Hilarious! Read more..
Cheryl Burke tells Parade.com it’s “nice and refreshing” having DL Hughley as her new partner for Dancing With The Stars Season 16. Cheryl also talks about his dance ability, their rehearsals, and who is his biggest competition. She also discusses the cast’s goal for the new season in bringing back the fun….
On working and rehearsing with Hughley.
“We’ve only done two rehearsals so far, and it’s just been really fun. It’s my first time having a comedian on the show, so it’s nice and refreshing to not take things too seriously. But he definitely does want to go far in the competition and he says he wants to win, so he’s working hard. There’s a great balance.”
On Hughley’s dancing ability.
“He’s doing good. He’s very rhythmic, which is a very good sign. It’s always too early to tell when you’ve just rehearsed a couple of days, but he’s just trying to get used to the dance shoes, and loosening his hips up, and coordinating everything together. It’s just those first baby steps. I will know more later if he has potential or not. Right now, we’re just focusing on learning how to walk. We’ll see what happens.”
On who their biggest competition is.
“D.L. thinks his biggest competition is Andy Dick. You have the two comedians there and they’re probably going to be head-to-head.”
On how this season will compare to past years.
“I think it’s fresher. We’re trying to bring the fun back into the show. I think past seasons have been a little too competitive, so I think people just want to bring back that fun and friendly family show that they’ve seen in the past. All Stars was a little too much. At the end of the day, this is an entertainment show, and there’s no need to be that competitive. We’re not on Survivor or anything!”
