A new season of Dancing With the Stars is upon us, and with that, comes some of the comedic television specials of all time, watching athletes and celebrities alike compete as dancers.
Now there’s no promise that this season will be as entertaining as the Aaron Carter and Michael Irvin show in Season 9, but this year’s cast includes Boston sports fan Maria Menounos and Packers wide receiver Donald Driver.
After Monday’s season premiere, Jaleel White — formerly known as Steve Urkel from Family Matters — was in the lead.
Menounos however was not too far behind, as she tied with Driver with a score of 26. Boston fans are counting on Maria to make it at least a few rounds to show people that Boston is great at things other than sports.
In case you missed last night’s episode, check out the video below to see Menounos and her partner Derek Hough perform “The Cha-Cha.”
