    John O'Hurley - Celebrity Dancer



    From the official site:
    PROFESSION:
    Actor, TV Host

    HEIGHT:
    6'2"

    PARTNER:
    Charlotte Jorgensen

    BACKGROUND:
    John was born in Kittery, Maine but grew up in West Hartford, CT.

    Drawn to performing from a young age, he remembers dressing up in a swimsuit, homemade oxygen tank and goggles to watch his favorite show Sea Hunt. "From that point on, acting was in my blood."

    Having graduated from Providence College, RI with a theater degree, John's career began with 12 years in daytime television, on shows including The Young And The Restless, All My Children and Santa Barbara.

    CAREER:
    John is best known for his role as charismatic catalogue king J. Peterman on Seinfeld, the number one syndicated TV show.

    His career in television includes ABC's Over The Top and A Whole New Ball Game, NBC's The Weber Show and CBS's Scorch. More than 50 guest-starring roles include Frasier, The X Files and Murder She Wrote. Most recently John appeared on UPN's The Mullets and NBC's Father of the Pride.

    John has starred in various films including Race To Space with James Woods and Billy The Kid with Val Kilmer. Behind the camera, John is currently producing The Richard Petty Story and is also developing a film version of the bestselling novel Ahab's Wife.

    An accomplished stage actor, John has starred in national tours of Pirates of Penzance, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Brigadoon. He is currently lending his voice to King Neptune in SpongeBob SquarePants, Captain Star Johnson in Duck Dodgers, and King Wallace II in Kim Possible.

    After a two year stint hosting To Tell The Truth and three years on Get Golf with the PGA tour, O'Hurley is a regular host of NBC's The National Dog Show.

    An all round performer, John has shown off his musical talent on stage in several performances of Broadway songs, accompanied by a 60-piece orchestra.

    PERSONAL:
    John married wife Lisa Mesloh in August 2004. They live in Beverly Hills with their two dogs Scoschi and Betty.

    Though an ardent Boston Red Sox Fan, John's true sporting passion is golf. He maintains his single digit handicap by playing on the Celebrity Player Tour, as well as lending his name and game to help charities close to his heart, namely Golfers against Cancer and The Child Development Institute. John is also an Honorary Chairman of the Epilepsy Foundation.

    I've liked him ever since his soap days. I'll be interested to see how he does in this competition.

    I find this guy very funny.
    I'm not sure why really, it's not like he isn't the same in everything I've seen him in, even commercials.
    I like him though.

    I LOVE this guy! When I finally realized he was going to be on this show, I was thrilled. Has anyone seen the commercial he's got running right now? I'm really bad about what commercials are trying to sell (I'm a horrible consumer ), but I appreciate the humor that some of them have, and his are terrific!

    I really noticed him for the first time in the "Greek Gods" commercial - remember him, not the product. I thought WOW! arched eyebrows and a humerous line delivery. Hope he can deliver a few humerous lines while wiping the sweat from his face.
