Green Bay Packers Clay Matthews, Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy were in the audience of “Dancing With the Stars” Monday night to root Donald Driver on to the finals. Rodgers gave Driver a score of 10 (a hand gesture), and the two official judges Carrie Ann and Bruno agreed with Rodgers. However, Judge Len Goodman has yet to give Donald that elusive ten that he so well deserves.
This has been the most competitive season ever of “DWTS” where any of the four couples can win. The standings after Monday’s two rounds of competition: Maria Menounos, 59; William Levy, 58; Driver, 57; and Katherine Jenkins, 56. Donald hopes his fans were out in force during the voting so he can make it to the final three for next week’s finale.
WATCH DONALD DRIVER DANCE THE SAMBA
Parade.com did an interview with the stunning Peta Murgatroy before the final four dances where she talks about what it’s like working with dancing partner, NFL star Donald Driver:
On calming the nerves.
“I always tell him it’s just him and I. It’s about how we can better ourselves and he agrees. He’s always telling me there is no ‘i’ in ‘team.’ He’s all about camaraderie and making sure it’s a team effort.”
Hardest part of the show.
“The hours that you have to put into it and how mentally exhausted you get after teaching and dancing all day and every day.”
The advantages of having an athlete.
“Definitely their drive to win and how competitive they are. They’re also quite good about being coached by somebody.”
And the disadvanatages.
“Their posture! Running after a ball is not good for their figure. Their shoulders are usually slumped and we have to correct that.”
What sets Donald apart.
“The chemistry we have together is like no other. We have this special bond. I don’t think anyone else has our friendship. And everyone can see how much fun we have on the dance floor. It’s not just about the competition for us. We’re having so much fun together.”
On the competition.
“It is so hard since everyone is so good at different things. Katherine [Jenkins] is the technician. She’s an amazing dancer. Maria [Menounos] has all that character and she’s so beautiful when she dances. William [Levy] is a heartthrob and he has this huge fan base. He’s an incredibly hulky guy. Everyone has something to offer.”
Surprises they have in store.
“There are a few cool moves we’ve got this week. The waltz is going to be extremely emotional. It’s going to be quite touching. When Donald and I first heard the song we both started crying. It was really emotional and people will be surprised by that.”
Favorite part of the season.
“Getting to know Donald. He’s an amazing family man, father, husband, everything. He’s so sweet and warm.”
Her dream DWTS partner.
“I was thinking about this: maybe Ryan Gosling or Kellan Lutz. I’ll be starting my campaign soon.”
