    Victor Ortiz & Lindsay Arnold - Season 16


    Victor Ortiz
    Season 16

    Pro: Lindsay Arnold


    Victor Ortiz is a living, breathing example of the American dream. From a broken home in a small town in Kansas to the bright lights of the boxing ring, Ortiz has used every obstacle he has encountered along his journey to fuel his strength and attain his dreams.

    As former Welterweight Boxing Champion, Ortiz finally found his life’s calling as a world class athlete. The nickname “Vicious” describes Ortiz when he’s in the ring, but his million-dollar smile is a preview to his heart of gold. His ability to connect with people on a human level has kept the spotlight from blinding him. Realizing the importance of hard work, dedication, and family at an early age, Ortiz always finds a way to give back.

    It looks like his head is photoshopped on that picture. Never heard of this guy, and don't know the new pro. Boxers haven't exactly done the best on this show when they've been cast. I'm thinking potential early elimination. I've read that this Lindsey girl wasn't all that great on SYTYCD.

    To echo kara: Don't know either one.

    Whoopee.

    As for the Chelsie clone-wannabe.

    Nothing personal, I just want the REAL one back, please, and thank you.

    No idea who Victor is, but I liked Lindsay on SYTYCD.

    Victor chatted with a TMZ cameraman about being on the show and working with Lindsay:

    Yeah, thanks for the link, MFW!

    He IS a cutie!

    And I'm sorry, but I had to LOL when he oh-so-sincerely said he couldn't let Lindsay, down, so he'd be bringing this home for her!

    Bless his 'lil naive heart!

    I KNOW his heart and mind are in the right place, and I am aware that he's a boxer . . .

    But, DWTS has felled many a previous man and/or woman who decided they were going to grace the dance floor (those that COULD dance in some way, shape or form, included). They found out, much to their chagrin, that this show is NO joke and can run you straight down the middle of the road.

    Being a champion boxer, I think it's pretty likely he's got a great work ethic. If that's so, that'll serve him well.

    We'll see how they do.

    Footwotk is also a very important aspect of boxing ... correct? So that should help. Lat's see if he floats like a butterfly and/or stings like a bee!

    ABSOLUTELY agreed!

    So, I'm thinking that if he's got even HALF a brain cell, he should at least do reasonably well.

    I think he will- she has never taught on this show before. She did pretty well on SYTYCD, but that doesn't always translate into a good teacher.
